Eat More Tuna…

Filed Under: Health Foods at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Forget about “eat more chicken”. Eat more tuna and enjoy much more health benefits. An excellent source of protein, tuna is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Bodybuilders and weight gainers generally eat tuna because of its high protein value, but the significant health benefits of tuna on the cardiovascular system are directly related to its high content of omega-3s.

Omega-3 fatty acids have become a popular name these days due to its ability to support healthy cholesterol levels. Regular intake of omega-3 can help to keep blood inside arteries from clotting, preventing cholesterol from turning into artery-clogging plaque, the cause of most heart attacks. Besides, omega-3s can prevent erratic heart rhythms and reduce high blood pressure.

Furthermore, as an oily fish, tuna contains high amounts of vitamin D and many people are fully aware of the endless list of benefits of the sunshine vitamin. A single can of tuna in oil contains 200 IUs, just about the daily adequate intake of vitamin D for infants, children, man and women aged 19-50 according to the US Dietary Reference.  However, the health benefits of tuna are not limited to only omega-3s and vitamin D.

Tuna is packed with valuable nutrients including high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B1 (thiamin), selenium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.

In addition, tuna is low in calories and can be added to the majority of weight-loss diets. You can make an “old fashioned macaroni salad with tuna” for a delicious meal of only 369 calories. Even tuna sandwiches can be a healthy option. Just watch for size (keep smaller portions) and the amount of mayonnaise used.

So, “eat more tuna”, that’s what those funny looking cows should say.

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I’m impressed, I must say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
