SUPERFOOD // SALMON:
Salmon is one of the best sources of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike most other fats, omega-3 fats are considered “essential,” meaning you must get them from your diet since your body can’t create them. Salmon is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and provide the essential building blocks for brain regeneration and repair.
