The sun is shining, it’s a brand new year and you are feeling good about yourself after a great Christmas break. So now’s just the right time to dig deep in to your powers of perseverance and commit to a healthy 2012.
The good news is you can forget the pills and potions because nature provides a healthy, nutritious and tasty treat you’ll love to include in your new year diet –salmon.
Regal King salmon contains more healthy omega 3 fatty acids than any other salmon. And you need very little of the oily fish to get your weekly dose of the essential and nutritionally important unsaturated fatty acid.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential because they cannot be synthesised by the human body and yet they are vital for normal metabolism.
Salmon is a good source of not only omega-3, but many essential minerals which are required for optimal health including selenium, iodine and zinc.
There are seven major health issues in which salmon products have been shown to be of potential benefit and they include facilitating weight loss. But salmon is also important for improving bone health and the functioning of the immune system as well as the body’s ability to fight infection.
It is also known to help heart health, improve overall nutrition, promote brain development and intelligence and work towards better general health and the prevention of major diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
So, how much salmon should we be eating? The Omega-3 Centre includes some guidelines.
A Regal salmon steak about the size and thickness of a deck of cards (100gms) contains about 2,000mgs long chain omega-3s. To prevent a deficiency of omega-3s, health authorities recommend about 650mgs of omega-3s a week for women and 1,100mgs for men.
At 100gms of fresh Regal salmon, your healthy meal fix is going to cost you around a very affordable $3 for the fish. If you have two or more oily fish meals every week you’re on track.
You can get your Regal salmon fix in a variety of ways – fresh whole salmon and fillets or packaged Regal Salmon products cold smoked or wood roasted.
But what about fish capsules? Well, a single 100gm piece of salmon is the equivalent of 14 standard fish oil capsules – and a whole lot tastier.
Besides all that…a healthy body leads not only to a healthy mind but also it’s a natural way of ensuring any beauty routine has a firm foundation on which to build.
