[Yakson House] Health Benefits of Salmon

Do you guys love salmon?

I can proudly say that I am a salmon lover.

I went to fish market the other day with my friends to eat salmon sashimi.

It's cheap and fresh!

salmon is also popular sushi ingredient. 

Since I brought up about how delicious salmon is, I will also talk about their health 


Eating salmon makes you smarter and happier. The brain is 60 percent fat and 

most of that is the omega-3 fatty acid DHA. Eating salmon regularly has been shown to 

 reduce the risk and incidence of depression.

Salmon protects your eyes. Eating salmon twice a week has been shown to 

significantly decrease the risk of macular degeneration — a chronic eye 

condition that leads to loss of vision. For the treatment and prevention of a 

condition called dry eye syndrome, eat two to four servings per week.

Salmon helps you sleep. Salmon is an excellent source of tryptophan, an all-

natural sedative. Studies show that tryptophan increases sleepiness in 

subjects with mild insomnia and helps to shorten the time it takes to fall asleep.

Eating salmon increases your cardiovascular health. As noted, salmon contains 

high levels of the omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA. These fats are responsible for 

many cardiovascular benefits such as reducing inflammation, keeping the 

blood from clotting excessively and relaxing and dilating the arteries. When 

eaten two to three times per week, salmon can protect you from problems 

such as heart attack, stroke, arrhythmia, high blood pressure and high
