👉A good resource to consult if seafood is a part of your diet is the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Seafood: www.ewg.org/research/ewgs-good-seafoodguide

🐠Wild caught salmon is one of the best low mercury options 

🌊Salmon has omega-3 fatty acids that can raise protective high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and protect against heart disease.

Since inflammation is also a leading cause of joint pain, it could be beneficial if that is the underlying cause.
