Salmon contains a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids. About half of this omega-3 fat is provided in the form of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and a slightly lower amount is provided in the form of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). In general, the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids involve improved control of the body’s inflammatory processes (cardiovascular health), improved mood and cognition and joint protection.
