Salmon is a highly nutritious food. It contains a high amount of protein, good fats and Vitamin D. A serving of 120g will go a long way to providing your daily dose of Vitamin D and it is one of the few foods that can make this claim. It also contains Vitamin B12, Niacin, selenium, B6 and magnesium.
Eating canned salmon with the bones is an excellent source of calcium which is a necessary mineral within the body to stabilise pH and support bone integrity.
