It's the omega 3 fatty acids. They are readily digestible in fish, unlike in plants where some may not be able to convert them. Taking fish oil is economical and effective. For about $3 a month you can get all the omega 3 you need this way. Take the fish oil in liquid form not in the liquid gel caps.

I get mine from bodybuilding.com It's health From the Sun ultra omega 3(Lemon Lime flavour). The shipping is extremely cheap to Canada so I imagine it's even better in the states. I got about 4 months worth including shipping for $14.

you don't need to eat alot of salmon to see the benefits. i eat a 7ounce salmon steak for dinner with vegetables and then wait for 20 minutes -- you will notice your skin changing to a very nice texture

for those worried about the cost of alaskan salmon you might consider buying bulk from an online source. ive been checking in to this lately and i found a couple sources that sell alaskan for around $7.00/lb. even with shipping it works out to less than 10 bucks a pound. at the supermarket the alaskan can range from $14 to $17/lb.

alaskan salmon is supposed to be relatively low in pollutants (or so i read) compared to other wild salmon, and especially compared to farmed salmon. and did you know that farmed salmon would actually be grey if it werent for the pink dye in their feed?

its important not to over-cook salmon and other meats. low temperatures will limit the production of heterocyclic amines and other carcinogens. heterocyclic amines arise when amino acids and creatine in the meat combine at high temperatures. also the charred surface of burnt meat is full of carcinogens. there are studies linking regular consumption of burnt or well-done meat with higher rates of cancer.

I know Salmon is awesome, but I believe Tuna works as well, or the white albacore types at least.

I eat Tuna at least once a day, usually 2

Tuna and Salmon contain high levels of mercury, which is not good for you at all. So i wouldn't be eating a lot of it. just a heads up.

Yes I heard it is good to minimize your intake of fish due to the Mercury found in fish mainly albacore tuna.

Is Salmon from the can ok?

Like chicken of the sea brand of salmon?

does it have to be pink salmon?

Canned meat/fish tends to be VERY disgusting.

I thought mercury levels were so low in these fish that the only people affected would be a pregnant women's baby, and even then in HUGE quantities.... I wish I found that link...

Anyways, salmon and tuna (albacore) are great, I eat them all the time.

So, can you just take the Omega 3 fish oil or do you have to buy Salmon?

Know what else is good and it is cheap and you don't have to worry about toxins since they are small - sardines.  Sardines in either hot sauce or mustard, don't do the ones canned in oil.  At WalMart they are .47 cents a can!  My son eats those now and Omega 3 Eggs.  In addition, he has cut out all sugars, wheats, grains (occasional brown rice and quinoa) and anything processed.  He lives on ground turkey breasts, turkey breast steaks,  other lean meats, sardines, mahi mahi, kippers, eggs, shrimp, oysters, squid, all the vegetables he wants, all the fruit he wants.  He went from cystic acne to almost totally clear in a few weeks.  In fact, it was one month this Sunday.  I highly recommend trying this and seeing if you are one of the ones who sensitive to the insulin reaction that processed refined foods have.  That in turn makes for more surges in hormones.  He looks so much better I can't believe it.  Try it and see.  He was cursed for sooooo long and went through every treatment from antibiotics, to 3 laser/levulan treatments, creams, etc.........
