Wild Alaskan Salmon


Wild Alaskan Salmon

Rich in Protein, Omega-3's and Astaxanthin

Alaskan Salmon: Red [Sockeye] Salmon. [Rich in Omega-3 & Protein]

  • Alaskan salmon is one of the last true wild salmons and one of the purest of all ocean fish available in the world. Atlantic salmon is now almost invariably synonymous with farmed salmon.
  • Farmed salmon have lesser omega-3 content and possibly higher contaminants such as mercury and PCB's which are cancer forming.
  • Alaskan salmon feed on zooplankton which are microscopic animals which in turn usually feed on phytoplankton [microscopic plant life]. This makes for a very clean and contaminant-free food chain.
  • The rich red colour comes from a carotenoid called astaxanthin a powerful antioxidant derived from the phytoplankton that makes this fish an even more healthy choice.
  • The astaxanthin is a natural preservative which eliminates the need for tocopherols [vitamin E additives] found in other canned fish varieties.
  • You will find 'Wild Alaskan Salmon' in cans from Paramount in supermarkets. Have at least 1 small can of Alaskan salmon per day for the rich omega-3 content, the astaxanthin and the high quality protein in this food.

Omega 3's, Cell Membrane Fluidity & Metabolic Rate

  • Omega-3's like monounsaturated fats can increase cell membrane fluidity and this is important for cellular metabolism.
  • The greater the membrane fluidity, the greater the calorie buring potential. Fish is also a superb source of quality protein.
  • Protein by itself also increases metabolic rate. Daily consumption of Alaskan salmon is highly recommended
