Fish is a form of white meat, a clean source of protein for the body. Let’s find out what other goodness is there in tuna, shall we?
Benefits Of Tuna
Tuna and salmon are fish that contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, and these acids help prevent a whole series of illnesses.
Minimizes risk of high blood pressure
Omega-3 fatty acids are proven to help lower the levels of triglycerides in the body. Don’t be worried by that term. It simply refers to the form in which fat is carried in our bloodstream. High levels of triglycerides is referred to as high total cholesterol.
Therefore, consuming tuna on a regular basis, say thrice a week, actually reduces the risk of getting heart disease like stroke and heart attacks.
Keeps the elderly bright
As we get older, we face a problem commonly referred to as a decline in cognitive function. Our abilities to think logically and act like rational adults become harder as time goes by.
Research has shown that a diet rich in fish helps to reduce the risk of this problem, if effort is taken to ensure that an elderly remains active in his or her golden years.
Reduces risk of eye-related problems
This point is related to the previous bullet above. Consumption of fish is now believed to help keep eye problems at bay, especially those that come about due to old age. Cataracts can be prevented if one practices good eye care habits and eats fish regularly.
