Salmon Superfood: Omega-3 and Heart Health

Are you showing your heart the love?

As we head into the season of love, it’s time to ask yourself – are you giving your heart the TLC it deserves?

As you’ve probably heard before, the heart is the strongest muscle in your body. According to Healthline, your heart will beat about 115,000 times each day and pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood every day! So how can you support your #1 muscle? Aside from exercising a few days a week and drinking 12 – 15 cups of water a day, you need to eat a healthy diet.

According to Seafood Nutrition Partnership, “eating seafood two to three times per week reduces the risk of death from any heart-related cause by 17%.” This is largely due to the amount of omega-3s seafood contains. Omega-3s are essential fatty acids, meaning that your body can’t make it, so you must get it from the foods and beverages you consume. They provide calories to give your body energy and have many functions in your heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine system (National Institutes of Health).

And that’s where we come in – our salmon has DOUBLE the omega-3s than other conventional farmed fish plus is lower in mercury and has 3X LESS contaminants. That means that in addition to getting a healthy does of protein and vitamin D, your heart also benefits from a generous amount of omega-3s. Plus, our salmon is responsibly raised and fully traceable from shore to shop – which means you can catch feelings for our fish and feel good about it, too!
