Rich in Omega 3
Oily fish such as salmon are particularly rich in polyunsaturated Omega 3 fatty acids which provide major health benefits.
These fatty acids are essential for the development and function of the retina, the brain and the nervous system. They also help protect the cardio-vascular system.
The human body is unable to produce enough Omega 3 and it is thus vital that we include it in our food. Oily fish such as salmon are an excellent natural source. This is why the main official health agencies, including Anses¹ and the UK’s FSA², recommend that oily fish such as salmon be included regularly in the diet.
