Salmon is a superfood because it's high in omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that seems to decrease the risk of heart disease. This fish is also a prime source of protein and contains vitamin A and B vitamins. No matter what type it is–farm-raised, wild, canned, or smoked–salmon provides omega-3 fat. But the amount of the fat will vary, as will the sodium content. In addition to the heart-healthy benefits, the omega-3 fats in this fish have also been shown to promote joint health, contribute to the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system, and may possibly help prevent certain types of cancer.
