Benefits of omega-3


Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Two of the minerals that are found in omega-3, are phosphorus and selenium. Let’s talk a little bit about phosphorus; this mineral is responsible for creating some of the energy that we use every day. Second of all, it helps our bodies in synthesizing proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

The vitamins in omega-3 are: B3, B12 & D. Vitamin B3 aka niacin, which lowers high blood cholesterol. It also helps the body maintain healthy skin, nerves and the digestive system. Some foods that contain B3 are: fish, red meat, chicken, nuts and enriched whole grain products. For enriched grains consider: oats, buckwheat, rice, rye, quinoa, and wheat.

B12: Lean beef, liver, eggs, shellfish and dairy products.

Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium and helps to keep phosphorus in the blood. Sources of vitamin D are: fish oil, dairy and sunlight.
