Vitamin D

Vitamin D is good for the immune system, strong bones and muscles.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6, or Pyridoxine, serves a key role in the body by helping to break down amino acids and form haemoglobin.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 helps the brain to work normally.

Silenium

Benefits of selenium have been found to improve the immune system against bacterial and viral infections, against cancer cells and herpes virus, cold sores, and shingles. One of the major nutritional benefits of selenium is increasing the HDL cholesterol to LDL cholesterol for a healthy heart.

Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential mineral required by every organ in the body for a range of activities including bone, protein and fatty acid formation. It is also essential in activating vitamins B and D, relaxing muscles, regulating calcium levels, helping blood to clot and is required for the secretion of insulin.

Phosperus

Phosphorus is an essential nutrient required for proper cell functioning, regulation of calcium, strong bones and teeth.

Potassium

Potassium is an essential nutrient used to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body.

Protein

Salmon is a rich source of protein.

Omega 3

Omega-3s are essential for brain development and function (source). The human brain is 60% structural fat, and in order to function properly, needs the right kind of fat (Omega-3s) to make sure that signals are passed quickly and easily between the membranes of our brain cells.

Omega-3

Salmon is an extremely healthy protein that is ideal for the whole family. Not only is it a great source of protein, it is also high in Omega 3 (EPA & DHA). Just three 150g serves per week provides the recommended intake of EPA & DHA which contributes to many health benefits including heart health.
Omega-3s are called ‘essential’ fatty acids because they’re critical to good health, but cannot be produced naturally by the human body. They need to be obtained from food. Atlantic salmon is one of the richest naturally occurring sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are called ‘essential’ fatty acids because they’re critical to good health, but cannot be produced naturally by the human body. They need to be obtained from food. There different kinds of Omega-3 – those from plant sources (known as ALA) and those from marine sources (called EPA & DHA). While both kinds of Omega-3 are important for good health, the marine Omega-3s are more potent and provide wide ranging health benefits throughout our bodies and brains.
