Considered one of the world’s healthiest foods, salmon provides an abundance of important nutrients. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin B6. Some other incredible health benefits are:


  •   Excellent source of vitamins, proteins, minerals & healthy fats
  • Helps to maintain insulin levels in your body & improving metabolism
  • Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease

  •  Reduces the risks of certain cancers
  •  Aids in maintaining healthy skin and hair
