A protein-rich food like salmon has more than a few tricks up its sleeves when it comes to nutrition. Salmon contains numerous bioactive peptides, including calcitonin. Calcitonin increases, regulates, and stabilizes collagen production in human cartilage – in short, salmon helps treat osteoarthritis and inflammatory joint conditions. Add this to the list of Omega-3 benefits fish has, and it’s no wonder easy salmon recipes are so popular!
