Have you ever heard of “skin food?” Well, consider salmon to be your superfood for a healthy glow.
Salmon is packed with healthy nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids which studies show can prevent certain cancers, help your heart and a host of other health bennies. Why do we love it? Because it makes our skin super happy!
Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary to keep skin thick, supple and moisturized. In fact, a deficiency in omega-3 fats can cause dry skin, which can lead to accelerated aging.
The other reason omega-3 found in salmon is so great for your skin is because it helps to calm inflammation, which can lead to a breakdown of collagen and elastin, both of which keep skin looking youngful.
Salmon also contains something called astaxanthin, which gives the flesh its pink color. It’s an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory so this helps with the same sort of thing ― nourishing collagen and calming inflammation which makes it a fantastic anti-aging agent.
The benefits don’t just stop there. Salmon contains vitamin D, which can protect your skin against the negative effects of UV rays. So, you could say that salmon is your trifecta. It can protect your skin from sun damage, dryness and collagen loss! But how much of it do you need to eat to reap these benefits? About one palm-sized serving three times a week is plenty. And be sure not to overcook it, as that could reduce the levels of healthy nutrients.
Ok, so what if you hate salmon but you still want to protect your collagen, add moisture to your skin, and protect it against free-radicals? Salmon isn’t the only way to get there!
