Salmon Oil In Your Diet: A Healthy Lifestyle

Fresh Salmon Diet Or Diet Supplement?

Knowing the benefits of salmon oil, you probably like to incorporate it into your diet. It’s easy. You simply add salmon to your weekly meal plan. A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of fatty salmon at least two times a week is highly beneficial, according to the American Heart Association.

For dinner, have a salmon fillet with garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil and roast it on a sheet pan with nutrient-dense vegetables. Try canned salmon to make an herbed or curried salmon salad. Serve it as a sandwich or on a bed of leafy greens for a light and satisfying lunch. Fresh, frozen, or canned salmon are great options.

Another option for a meal is salmon sushi. You can enjoy salmon sushi in many ways such as salmon sushi rolls, salmon sashimi, or salmon nigiri.

You don’t like the taste of salmon? Then consider taking a salmon oil supplement. They come in liquid or softgel form, bought online or at your favorite health shop. While dosage vary, daily intake of 1 gram of salmon oil that includes both EPA and DHA is adequate. Avoid consuming more than 3 grams per day unless you are under a doctor’s supervision.

Does taking salmon oil have attendant precautions and possible side effects? Salmon oil supplements are likely safe for most people, but overdosing could lead to uncomfortable side effects, such as nausea, heartburn, and diarrhea. Consult your doctor if you’re taking aspirin before starting a salmon oil supplement, as it could increase your risk of bleeding.

Salmon oil is a dietary supplement and hence non-regulated. Always choose a supplement that has been tested by a third party like the NSF or the US Pharmacopeia to ensure the purity and quality of the product you buy.

Consuming omega-3s from salmon oil is associated with a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation, aiding weight management, and boosting heart and brain health. However, stick to the recommended amount of salmon per week and the recommended dosage of salmon oil. Consuming too much could lead to negative health implications. If you’re unsure whether salmon oil is right for your diet, consult your doctor for advice.

Edamame: Beyond Appetizer Status

Amazing Benefits in Small Bites

How could a small saucer of immature soybeans cooked and served inside their pods be an awesome plant-based protein source?
Edamame is an excellent source of many nutrients and antioxidants. Because of these, the unassuming soybeans pack a lot of health benefits and is a great food to include in your diet.

  • It’s a great protein source. One cup of edamame has 14 grams of protein – excellent energy source, especially for vegans. It’s higher in protein than chickpeas, lentils, or black beans.
  • It has all nine essential amino acids, like leucine, lysine, threonine, tryptophan, etc.; a complete protein source, versus sources like grains, nuts, and seeds.
  • It’s a good source of fiber. One cup has six grams of fiber, which is a fourth of the recommended daily intake.
  • It’s a great source of folate. Folate is linked to lowering the risk of heart disease and strokes while also supporting hair and nail growth.
  • It has calcium, which is for bone health, and vitamin K which helps regulate calcium levels.
  • It is full of magnesium. One cup has 72 milligrams of magnesium, which could help you sleep better and also help relieve workout-related leg cramps.
