Not only do our sustainably made, salmon superfood cracklets provide an excellent source of protein, collagen, and Omega-3 fatty acids you also get a big splash of vitamin D!

So you may be thinking –  that all sounds super, but what exactly does a “superfood” mean? Great question! Let’s dive into what all of this health talk actually means for your body.

Salmon Superfood and Vitamin D

How it benefits you: Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus, leading to healthy immune system functionality. Meaning it helps with the growth of your bones and teeth and fights off certain diseases. Get the full details in this article reviewed by Dr. Debra Wilson, or catch our summary below. 

Other sunny benefits:

  • Reduces your risk of multiple sclerosis, the flu, heart disease
  • Regulates your mood and helps ward off depression
  • Boosts weight loss and a healthier heart

People that do not get enough vitamin D often experience stress fractures, climbing stairs, tiredness, aches, and a general sense of not feeling well. This means it is time to brighten your day and feel better by popping a bag open of vitamin D snacks from Williwaw! Perhaps you are poking around for a complete meal of delicious superfoods?

Salmon Superfood and Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Williwaw Salmon Cracklets are also swimming in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fats that our bodies need to not just survive – but thrive! Most people don’t get enough omega-3 fatty acids in their diets, so our salmon cracklets are a perfect catch at the store or online

How it benefits you: There are three main types of omega-3s: ALA, DHA, and EPA. DHA is the most important omega-3 fatty acid in the body. It’s a critical structural component of your brain, the retina of your eyes, and numerous other body parts. ALA is mostly found in plants, and DHA and EPA are in algae and animal foods, like salmon! Just like collagen, the skin of the salmon has the highest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. ⁠

Other health benefits:

  • Helps ward off depression and anxiety
  • Promotes brain and eye health
  • Fights inflammation
  • Improves joint pain

If you find it hard to concentrate, feel fatigued, or experience leg cramps or brittle nails and hair – you may be deficient in omega-3s. While it is also important to talk to your doctor about this, it doesn’t ever hurt to try our latest traditional Thai papaya salad with a Williwaw twist recipe!
