WILD ALASKAN SALMON (SOCKEYE)! An integral source of protein to add to your healthy diet, Salmon is a must for anyone looking to gain muscle or get lean. But not all Salmon are created equal. When shopping for your next fresh salmon filet dinner, AVOID Farmed or (“Atlantic”) salmon and go for the WILD caught salmon whenever possible. Atlantic Salmon Omega 3/ Omega 6 ratio is far less appealing that that of Wild Caught Salmon. This is due to Farmed Raised Salmon being fed a grain-infused diet, a feed that contains ARTIFICIAL pigments to make the fish’s meat “LOOK” more ping-orange and natural. On the contrary, Wild Salmon contain heart healthy fats which raises HDL (good) cholesterol levels as well as providing huge doses of OMEGA-3 fatty acids that can ward of diseases.

With its 24g of Protein, 172 Calories and 0g of Carbs, Wild Caught Salmon makes the perfect dinner plate for those looking to repair and gain muscle as well as for those looking to achieve or keep the lean weight they desire. Not to mention the high percentage of Vitamin B12 found in Wild Sockeye Salmon. B12 is a water soluble vitamin that aids in normal brain and nervous system function as well as aiding food metabolism! A key element to Fat Loss and Muscle Building. Wild Sockeye Salmon, NJ HIIT approved!
