1. CONSUMPTION OF SALMON MAY PROLONG YOUR LIFE?

 

Fish reduce the risk of many diseases, including atherosclerosis, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke and rheumatic diseases. They positively affect the blood vessels, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels (and increase good cholesterol), and significantly reduce the risk of venous thrombosis. These benefits come from polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Thanks to omega-3 the human body produces lipids with a strong anti-inflammatory effect (so called resolvins). 

According to Harvard study, the consumption of 85 grams of salmon weekly reduces the risk of death from heart disease by 36% and may prolong the life expectancy by 17%.

This is not only due to vitamin A and vitamin E, which have a positive effect on skin health. Salmon prevents inflammatory processes, protects collagen fibres, softens the effects of UV rays, firms and elasticises the skin.

 

This is mainly due to polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, which have skin smoothing properties.

3. CONSUMPTION OF SALMON IS ANTI-CANCER?

According to the study, omega-3 fatty acids contained, among others, in salmon stop the growth of cancer cells of e.g. prostate, breast, colon and lungs. They also strengthen the immune system. Researchers of the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon have shown that people who eat the most fish have a 31% lower risk of colorectal cancer than those who avoid fish. WHO data show that the increase in fish consumption reduces the mortality rate of lung cancer in men by 8.4%. The vitamin A, D and E contained in fish prevent the formation of oxygen radicals, which are harmful in excess as they are responsible for lowering the immune system efficiency and damage nerve tissue.

4. CONSUMPTION OF SALMON PROTECTS YOUR SIGHT?

Omega-3 acids contained in salmon favourably affect the retina and prevent eye diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role as components of cell membrane construction (especially in the nervous system of the eye). Since our body cannot produce this acid itself, eating fish, such as salmon, is extremely important.

5. SALMON CONSUMPTION IMPROVES MEMORY AND MIND CAPABILITIES?

The recent studies by Harvard School of Public Health found that schoolchildren whose diets were enriched with omega-3 fatty acids over three months achieved as much progress in learning as their peers after three years. The pupils improved memory and concentration significantly. The studies have shown that a diet rich in fish, such as salmon, increases the amount of grey matter in the brain cortex.

6. FISH CONSUMPTION MAY IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF YOUR CHILD?

Cambridge University researchers and independent scientists of Harvard University have reached such conclusions. The study covered 2,112 18 year olds studying in the USA and Canada. Those young people whose diet was poor in omega-3 fatty acids had lower lung capacity and were more likely to have chronic bronchitis and asthma. Salmon is also rich in vitamins and minerals. These are mainly vitamins A and D, water soluble vitamins B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6 and B12, iron and phosphorus, selenium, magnesium, calcium and iodine, which is crucial for proper thyroid function.

7. SALMON CONSUMPTION PREVENTS SENILE DEMENTIA?

 

French scientists of the University of Bordeaux have examined 1,694 people over the age of 68. It turned out that dementia is less common in people whose diet contained fish and seafood than in the study group without such preferences.
