Benefits of the Salmon Fillet
According to Dr. Axe, Salmon Contains more than a day’s worth of vitamin D in just one serving, eating wild-caught salmon helps maintain optimal health in a variety of ways. This is important, as Vitamin D deficiency is been linked to everything from cancer to multiple sclerosis to rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease. D. Alexander Parker, PhD, associate professor of epidemiology and urology at Mayo Clinic in Florida, suggests that one-quarter of Americans suffer from low levels of vitamin D. This stresses the need for all of us to supplement or eat vitamin D-rich salmon on a regular basis. Another study by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 7.6 million children across the U.S. were vitamin D deficient. This is defined as less than 15 ng/ml of blood.
