Salmon is an excellent source of protein and Omega-3 healthy fats. Regular Omega-3 consumption has been shown to increase learning and memory as well as burn excess body fat.
Be sure to look for the wild caught variety, as farmed salmon often contains high levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a toxic chemical that can produce serious side effects for our immune and reproductive systems.
