Salmon seems to receive all of the accolades when it comes to health benefits.
But the humble tuna puts up a pretty good fight for nutritional profile.
Let’s see why it measures up!
Heart Healthy Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) while increasing good cholesterol (HDL). This reduces the negative impact cholesterol has on the arteries and allows the heart to do its job, pumping blood around the body.
Reduces Pain and Inflammation
The healthy fats found in Tuna have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation, particularly muscular, joint and arthritic pain but can also include headaches and migraines.
Helps to Lower Blood Pressure
Tuna contains beneficial levels of potassium. Potassium is an electrolyte which supports healthy blood pressure. Teamed up with anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids and blood can flow freely and without resistance around the body.
Supports a Healthy Immune System
Zinc and Vitamin C are important antioxidant nutrients in a healthy immune system.
The reduction and management of inflammation, along with the clean protein found in tuna sets the body up for a healthy metabolism. Tuna is low in saturated fats and is therefore a healthy option over red meats, which are rich in saturated fat.
Rich in B vitamins, Tuna is a great supporter of bone health, making the bones stronger, more durable and less likely to break or fracture.
The mix of protein, omega-3, B vitamins, zinc and Vitamin C is the perfect recipe for glowing, radiant skin. Free of acne, dry patches and wrinkles.
Enhanced Energy Production
Protein and B Vitamins provide sustained energy to support you throughout the day, stress and all.
