e0fc24c143960ff55a7a1eefa8f669a9_400x400Salmon is one of the most AWESOME foods out there that is really going to help make a difference in your diet. There is a lot you probably already know about salmon like how it’s high in protein which has a profound influence on being able to stimulate the creation of new muscle fibres. It also aids recovery, prevents the loss of lean tissue and helps you feel fuller for longer so you’re not reaching out for a few cheeky biscuits while at the office!

But there is more too about salmon, for example it is high in omega-3 essential fatty acids. Now omega 3’s gets shouted out quite a lot for being “good for you” but what exactly are they good for and how are they going to help you?

You have the things we already know like, reducing cardiovascular disease, improving insulin sensitivity (great news for type II diabetics) and improving cognitive (brain) development-oh and they’re anti-inflammatory.

But what is even more relevant to us is that recent studies have shown that having Omega-3s with adequate amino acid intake increases muscle protein synthesis or the creation of new muscle! Which is great news to help aid you in recovery and building lean tissue. Try to have it at least 3 a week.
