Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which help with heart health by lowering triglyceride levels (fat deposits), slowing the growth rate of your atherosclerotic plaque (the buildup in your arteries) and lowering blood pressure. Omega-3s also decreases your risk of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).
