Pesto in pasta is always a winner but adding Safcol Salmon makes it even better!

To support optimal brain, artery and heart function, omega 3 fat is an essential part of the diet. Safcol Salmon in Springwater ticks this box in this delicious pasta recipe. Salmon is also a good source of B12 which is needed for your body to make red blood cells and for central nervous system function. Also, iodine and selenium which is needed for healthy metabolic function by looking after the health of your thyroid. You may be surprised to know that salmon contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin. This antioxidant helps to lower your ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and raise your ‘good’ HDL cholesterol. Adding to the healthy profile of your cholesterol is the heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and polyphenol-rich extra virgin olive oil.

The peas and sugar snap peas are a great source of vitamin C and A providing immune support while vitamin A also helps your vision. Peas also give your body vitamin K which helps your blood to clot normally and for your bones to stay strong. Adding to the immune support benefits the garlic has a compound called Allicin which gives any nasties in your body the boot.
So, tuck into the classic which can easily become a staple in any family’s week with the added benefit of brain, artery and heart function.
