Salmon and avocado are full of essential Omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce pain and inflammation, and lower blood pressure. Salmon is also a great source of protein, B vitamins, potassium, and other heart-healthy nutrients. Mango and orange are packed with vitamin C, plus mango can help protect against certain cancers, alkalizes the body, improves eye health, normalizes insulin levels, and more. Parsley delivers vitamin K for bone health, is an anti-inflammatory, and helps reduce excess fat from the blood.
