10/1/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

Hi.  Need another reason other than taste for eating delicious salmon or tuna?  Try omega-3's.  Omega-3's are fatty acids found in cold-water fish such as salmon or tuna which help prevent fat from building up in the arteries ( including the aorta. A REALLY pivotal artery).  Omega 3's reduce a molecule called lipoprotein lipase(according to a Columbia University Medical Center study), which traps 'bad' LDL cholesterol in the wall of arteries like the aorta.

The study suggest that if you eat more cold-water fish or take a supplement (find one that is a good quality, or it can seep out of your pores and make you smell like a fish).  Try to eat wild caught sake salmon.  The meat is a darker reddish color.  Eating wild catch fish helps to reduce the level of mercury which can be an issue if you eat a lot of certain kinds of fish. Go online for a newly updated list of these fish to be aware of which are highest in Mercury.
