In its 2000 dietary guidelines, the American Heart Association recommended two fish meals per week with three to four ounces of fish per meal. This recommendation echoed by numerous health groups, is based on many years of research into the health benefits of fish.
The main cardiovascular benefits of eating fish are thought to come from omega-3 fatty acids. These fish oils have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease in healthy individuals and in those who already have heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are found to some degree in all fish, however the levels of omega-3's are especially high in dark-colored fish that come from cold, deep waters.
If you want the health benefits found in omega-3 without having to wet a line, genuine Kenai Wild Alaska salmon is the perfect option. Ask for it by name when purchasing salmon.
