Not only is salmon delicious, but it is also a great source of protein. One 6 ounce piece of salmon contains over 20 grams of protein and a plethora of other benefits. Salmon is one of the best sources of long-chain omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. Omega 3’s are considered “essential nutrients,” meaning that the body cannot create them and they have to be obtained through diet. Many studies show that the combination of omega 3’s in salmon may encourage brain health.
Unbeknownst to many, garlic was one of the world’s earliest performance enhancing supplements. Don’t worry, there are no pre-competition lab tests for garlic! This herb was traditionally used by ancient cultures to reduce fatigue and increase the work capacity of laborers. In ancient Greece, it was even given to Olympic athletes.
Long gone are the days when fats were considered bad. Quite the contrary, healthy monosaturated fats like those that comprise 77 percent of avocados have some very important properties including the ability to reduce inflammation, support blood flow and increase nutrient absorption. These fats have also been shown to protect specific nerve cells in the brain. Avocados are packed with fiber which aids in digestion and promoting satiety.
Like most citrus fruit, limes are chock full of vitamin C, but that is not the only benefit that they have to offer. The carbohydrates in limes are primarily made of soluble fiber which helps to slow digestion. Among other things, the slowed digestive process helps stabilize blood sugar.
Receptra CBD Oil
The benefits of CBD are countless. The U.S. Government patented CBD decades ago as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant. Both of these qualities aid in healthy mobility, focus, attitude and most importantly, restoring and maintaining an overall balance (homeostasis) in the body. The MCT oil used as a carrier oil for Receptra’s pure hemp CBD adds additional benefits to this healthy salmon recipe with CBD including increased energy and fat burning potential.
