Salmon, like other oily fish, is a rich source of the essential omega 3 fatty acids ‘EPA’ and ‘DHA’. These fatty acids must be obtained from the diet, as the body is unable to make them. Vascular dementia is thought to develop when cholesterol clogged arteries can’t deliver enough oxygen-rich blood to the brain. As part of a healthy diet, oily fish can help to reduce levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol.
