ER physician Dr. Travis Stork reveals a surprising food that could help to build muscle and it is smoked salmon. He explains that the fish delivers much-needed protein to the body, which is beneficial to the body after exercise.

He also notes that salmon contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which research has shown to help lower cholesterol levels and even possibly fight inflammation.
