Secret Island Health Benefits
Our seafood is the stuff of legends, and there’s a reason why.
Secret Island’s flash-frozen salmon is packed with nutrients that support a healthy immune system, Omega-3 fatty acids, and high levels of Vitamin D, all of which are essential nutrients for health.
Our salmon, (often considered a superfood), is just as nutritious as it is delicious, and we want you to know exactly what you can expect with each bite of our magical seafood.
- Great Source of Omega-3
According to FDA and other key nutrition researchers, salmon is one of the best sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, sustainably farmed salmon is actually higher in Omega-3’s than wild salmon – making it an essential part of your diet that can help manage blood pressure, lower your risk of Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and improve overall brain and eye health.
- Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D
Salmon is an excellent way to get your daily dose of Vitamin D and is one of the few food sources of naturally occurring Vitamin D. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, just a 6 oz serving provides nearly 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin D.* This nutrient is involved in several important bodily processes including turning food into energy, bone health, repairing and replacing DNA, maintaining optimal brain and neurological functions as well as reducing the risk of several diseases.
- Weight Control
Many studies have shown that regularly consuming seafood like salmon as part of a healthy diet frequently help regulate the hormones that manage your appetite and can make you feel fuller for longer. Since salmon is very low in calories—the average serving has fewer than 182—your body can lose belly fat and boost your metabolic rate.
- Disease Prevention
Another impressive benefit of salmon? It can help prevent against certain cancers, Type 2 diabetes, and inflammations in the nervous system and brain due to a special antioxidant called astaxanthin (pronounced asta-zan-thin). Besides working as a barrier, this special molecule is also great for your skin and has numerous anti-aging properties!
- Heart Healthy
Two salmon meals a week is all it takes! Adding salmon to your diet is proven to reduce the risk of heart-attacks and other major cardiovascular problems. In a recent scientific study conducted by the American Heart Association, salmon’s high contents of Omega-3 fatty acids were shown to ease heart inflammation, stop the formation of dangerous blood clots, and discourage potentially deadly heart arrhythmias.
