Salmon Boosts Heart Health
While you may not love the idea of swapping that t-bone steak for a piece of salmon, salmon has the power to protect you against a variety of health risks. According to a recent study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, incorporating salmon into your diet once a month decreases your risk of cardiovascular disease by twenty-one percent. If you add salmon to your diet twice a week you can decrease your risk by a whopping thirty-one percent!
Salmon Is Good For Your Mental Health
According to research from the Journal of Nutrition, salmon offers a plethora of brain benefits from the omega-3 fatty acids it provides. The fatty acids in salmon, once digested, turn into protectins which can help prevent excessive inflammation in the brain that causes dementia. Salmon is called brain food for just that reason!
Salmon Is Great For Your Eyes
The National Eye Institute conducted a study that found men who had high levels of omega-3 fatty acids from salmon were thirty percent less likely to report eyesight loss as they aged. At Joy Tree, we’re proud to offer a variety of healthy and nutritious meals featuring salmon. Our popular grilled salmon entree features citrus marinated salmon on top of a bed of sauteed kale.
