I would very much like to tell you about the properties ofNorwegian salmon and I would like it even more that, after reading this article, many of you decide to include it , permanently, in theweekly food plan it is so healthy and good to eat.

Do you know Norwegian salmon?

The Norwegian salmon is rich in incredible organoleptic properties, after a life spent quite easily in the beautiful fjords that are the hallmark of this land. Not straining so much in life, Norwegian salmon is considered the one with the most valuable meat.

Predatory fish, it lives in marine waters most of its life but is famous for going upstream, at a certain point of life, and return to the fresh waters where it was born to lay eggs, as its life cycle wants.

It can live up to ten years and can reach a length of one and a half meters for more than 20 kilos in weight.

But let's see all the properties it has.

5 properties of Norwegian salmon

Thanks to omega3 and the polyunsaturated fats of which Norwegian salmon is rich, it is perfect to be included in a balanced diet, at least a couple of times a week.

Being rich in proteins, it is not not even fat and tends to satiate without weighing down our body.

And then it's good for you, which really shouldn't be underestimated!

Salmon is:

  1. antitumor. In fact, the positive incidence of omega3 in tumor findings has been studied
  2. anti-aging. Polyunsaturated fats and omega-3s fight free radicals that cause both cancer cells to run amok and skin aging.
  3. anti-depressant. An important improvement in mood was noted when salmon was chosen to be included in the diet.
  4. anti-dementia. As for depression, it is very interesting to see how the properties of salmon help our brain to remain lucid, without running into those senile problems that are difficult to digest such as arteriosclerosis or real dementia.
  5. anti- cholesterol. It is perfect for improving the good cholesterol at the expense of the bad one and therefore, thus, also improving the cardiovascular activity which is closely related to the way we eat.

The salmon, then, and this for sure it should not be underestimated, it is also rich in vitamin D, the same we eat in the sun and which is perfect for strengthening our bones and fighting osteoporosis.


Never be said that we don't find ourselves talking about the beauty and goodness of some foods that are not typically Italian. It is clear that, sometimes, it is easier to put pasta with tomato sauce on a plate than a freshly seared salmon. But salmon is good for you, very good for you! It's good for the bones as well as for the head, it improves cholesterol and the heart, it's anti-tumor and improves the skin, this without making you fat, being rich in omega3 and polyunsaturated fats. I wouldn't want to go back to a well-known advertisement from the early 80s but I can't help but say: Trying is believing, what do you think?
