It doesn’t just make for great starters and main course, but salmon has more health and beauty benefits than most ingredients combined. Here’s why this filet of fish should be a pantry staple in your home:

Weight Loss: If you want to keep your calorie count in check, ditch the meat for some salmon and a side of green veg. The lean protein will make you feel full, regulate your metabolism, and also aid in muscle building.

Hair: Vitamin B12 and omega 3 fatty acids from the salmon significantly improve scalp health, promote hair growth, and give you a glossier mane.

Skin: The omega 3 in this oily fish is also a great anti-aging agent that hydrates your skin, provides sun protection, and is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant too.

Health: The omega 3, EPA and DHA fats in salmon have great cardiovascular benefits. Right from arrhythmia and stroke to heart attacks and high blood pressure, the miracle food works against it all.
