Farmed Salmon Health Benefits For An Active Lifestyle

Farmed Salmon is good for you and some of the greatest salmon health benefits include a reduced risk of certain types of cancer simply by eating salmon once per week. People who eat salmon have a 37% reduced risk of colorectal cancer and men can have a 72% reduced risk of prostate cancer. Additionally, farmed salmon can improve blood flow, prevent erratic heart rhythms, unclog arteries and reduce the risk of stroke. One of the most important salmon health benefits is a lower level of triglycerides in the body. This can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Additionally, another of the salmon health benefits is that the fish is full of omega-3 fatty acids, while still low in calories and saturated fat.
