Do you eat Salmon?
If fish delicacy were a world in itself, then ‘Salmon’ for sure would have been the star thanks to the nutrients that this fatty fish has to offer. Every 100 gram of fresh salmon holds up to 232 calories, out of which 25 grams are in the form of protein and 14.6 grams is fat, along with ample vitamin B12 and potassium.
Salmon has become an exception for those who like to stay fat-free thanks to its benefits and the main reason for this is ‘Omega-3’ fatty acids, which is an essential fat that cannot be made in a human body. Omega fats are linked to brain and cardiac health, thereby making it a super supplement to your diet.
