Mowi Salmon: A Nutritional Powerhouse

Our goal at Mowi is to provide delicious salmon while also encouraging a healthy diet and lifestyle. We are all aware of the numerous health advantages linked with salmon consumption, but how beneficial is it for you?

Nutrient-dense foods such as salmon play an important role in meeting our individual dietary requirements without excess energy intake. The nutrients in salmon support optimal health and help to reduce the risk of a range of diseases and disorders. The Blue Foods Assessment also discovered that foods from the ocean, such as salmon, offer far greater nutritional benefits than other land-based animal foods. 

We’re proud to offer a high-quality product that has a taste and health profile that few other products can match. Our salmon is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, which are important nutrients for people of all ages. However, it is the Omega-3 fatty acids that receive the most attention, and rightly so. Consumption of these essential Omega-3 fatty acids is proven to help maintain a healthy heart, reduce inflammation, support brain function and development, and lower blood pressure.

In addition to being an excellent source of Omega-3, here are some of the many benefits that make our salmon a nutritional powerhouse:

EPA & DHA: EPA and DHA are in cell membranes and help cells function properly. Marine Omega-3s prevent development of cardiovascular disease.

Protein: Protein is a building block in muscles. At least nine amino acids are essential for humans, and all nine are present at balanced levels in our salmon.

Vitamin D: Helps the body absorb calcium. Lack of vitamin D is associated with rickets in children and soft bones in adults.

Vitamin E: Plays a role in our immune function and is an important antioxidant needed to protect cells.

Vitamin B12: Helps red blood cells form and keeps the nervous system healthy. A lack of vitamin B12 can cause a form of anaemia.

Selenium: Selenium helps cognitive function and fertility for men and women. Lack of selenium leads to weakening of the heart muscles and increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Iodine: Iodine plays a vital role in our metabolism and a deficiency can lead to reduced growth and mental decline. It is particularly vital for pregnant women to aid the growing baby’s development.

Total fat: Salmon is rich in the very long chain fatty acids which are essential for our health and are needed to ensure cells function well.

Mowi salmon is not just an incredible superfood, but it is also extremely versatile. It is now easier than ever to prepare a well-rounded and appetising meal by pairing it with plant-based foods such as vegetables, fruit, legumes, whole grains, and nuts. Health authorities and nutritionists from around the world recommend that you include at least one portion of oily fish, such as salmon, into your diet every week. By doing this, your body and mind will reap the benefits!
