Canned tuna has many benefits for your body. It contains omega-3 fatty acids that protect the body against cardiovascular diseases and it’s high in vitamins B, D, A, selenium, magnesium, and phosphor. It isn’t widely known that fatty acids ease the pain of arthritis, limit asthma symptoms, and are necessary for the proper development of young organism. Omega-3 fatty acids also have the ability to increase your body’s performance by promoting blood circulation in organs - which is especially helpful to athletes. Moreover, these acids delay fatigue, build up lactic acid levels, and reduce the creation of blood clots.
