SALMON The natural super food

Even though the fatty acid Omega-3’s are essential for brain development and function, our body doesn’t produce it naturally. We need to get all our Omega-3 from our food. Tasmanian Salmon is one of the best sources of Omega-3 occurring in nature.

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.

Just 100g of Salmon provides 159%# of our recommended daily intake of Omega-3. Farm fresh Tasmanian Salmon really is natures super food.
