When it comes to salmon, wild caught salmon, is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet.
It has one of the highest omega-3 contents, responsible for reducing inflammation; it is also packed with vitamins and minerals.
Around 85g of wild caught salmon has:
21.6g of protein.
6.9g of fat.
0g of carbohydrates.
0g of fibre.
0g of sugar.
One serving of wild-caught salmon has more than one days worth of vitamin D.
The significant source of omega-3 in wild-caught salmon is credited with anti-inflammatory effects in the body and with increasing brain function. So, when your parents used to call fish 'brain food' they may not have been far wrong.
