pHealthy Eating With Fish
Specifically Cold Water Wild Fish!
Food for the most part should “add value” so we need to determine the best of the best for the highest potential of “value added”. Then when we are not eating something that’s great for us, we’ve created a great reserve as a result of all the right choices we make.
Let’s take salmon for an example, specific to salmon is Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA – great food for our brain, muscles, ligaments, tissues, not to mention our skin and hair.
Pacific Northwest cold water (river or ocean) creates a certain trust factor of the health of the fish and that it will offer more Omega oils than warm Atlantic water. The other reasons are simple, cold water wild fish contain no added chemicals, no preservatives, no artificial coloring (like some Farm Raised and some Atlantic fish we see in the market), no pesticides, no growth hormones, no antibiotics, no GMO’s, etc. and, unlike farm fish, wild cold water fish eat food found in the natural cold waters.
Different microorganisms grow at different temperatures and at different pH levels. So it makes sense that fewer “bad” microorganisms will grow in a cold environment, and to reiterate, the colder the environment, the better/higher omega oils value.
Nordic Naturals Omega Oils are offered at quantity discounts in integrated 6 packs, and pHBB members can take advantage of a discount coupon as well, however eating fish can supplement some of these oils. Other ways are Avacado Oil, Coconut Oil, etc., which should be cold pressed and centrifigual force if possible.

The other important fat in Wild Alaska Salmon is DHA , which plays an essential role in brain function. More than half of your brain consists of fat, and DHA is the most abundant. DHA levels play a critical role in your cognitive functioning throughout your life--and normal levels are needed for optimal memory and brain function.
