All About Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce triglycerides. A triglyceride is the form in which most fats exist, both in food and in the body. Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the possibility of developing certain cancers and tumors.
They also have anti-inflammatory properties and have been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack. Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in menhaden (a member of the herring family) and plants like flax. Some veterinarians prescribe fatty acids for conditions like heart and kidney disease, allergies, arthritis, and some skin problems.
