Salmon has a well deserved reputation as a heart healthy food, and consuming it in the form of delicious smoked sockeye salmon is a particularly enjoyable way to get its health benefits. Salmon is a powerhouse food thanks to its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which have many benefits for the heart and cardiovascular system. It has been well established in the existing medical literature that these fatty acids have the ability to lower blood triglycerides, reduce blood pressure, and reduce the risk of blood clot formation. Several leading health agencies in the United States, including the American Medical Association and the American Heart Association, recommend one to two servings of fatty fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids per week. Salmon has these omega fatty acids in abundance and is an excellent selection. For those with a personal or family history of heart disease it is advised to eat even more than the normally recommended level of one or two servings a week.
In addition to its heart protecting qualities, the essential fatty acids found in smoked salmon are also necessary for optimal brain health. They are considered to be the critical building materials of brain cells and nerve tissue. These fatty acids are found in high concentrations in the human brain and healthy levels are linked to lower incidences of cognitive disorders. Deficiencies of these omega-3 fatty acids are linked to mood swings, fatigue, depression and poor memory. Regular consumption of fatty fish like smoked sockeye salmon can prevent these deficiencies.
One three ounce serving of smoked salmon is full of essential fatty acids and has only 100 calories. About 60 percent of those calories come from fat, but remember this is healthy fat, and provides the miracle fatty acids that are required for brain and heart health. It is also an excellent source of protein, with 16 grams, or 32 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for protein. Smoked salmon provides a whopping 145 percent of the RDA of vitamin D. Many nutritional experts recommend vitamin D supplements for those living in northern locales, due to the difficulty in obtaining enough sunlight for the body to synthesize vitamin D on its own in these areas. Eating wild caught smoked sockeye salmon can be a delicious alternative to vitamin D supplements.
