Salmon is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory and protect against heart disease and dementia. Salmon is a fish that is low in mercury, unlike tuna. Kale is the naturopaths' favourite vegie. It is a rich source of vitamins A, C and K, folate, lutein (for eye health) and the minerals, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. As it is a member of the cruciferous veg family, it has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, as it assists in detoxification.
