I love seafood. I just love it, most kinds too. I’ll eat crab, lobster, catfish, salmon, and tuna. I know there are tons more but I can’t list them all especially when I’m here to tell you what I have learned about a new study on tuna.
When I was pregnant I was told not to eat tuna. I was told not to eat a lot of things, no lunch meant and no bottom dwelling fish. I thought this included crab and tuna, why, because they are supposed to carry large amounts of mercury. At least that is what I was told. I mean, I was so worried I just didn’t eat any fish the entire two pregnancies. The studies on healthy tuna say that not eating fish while being pregnant can lead to depression.
What does tuna have that’s good for you?
Tuna is an excellent source of the essential omega-3 fatty acids which are known to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. I know that when I was pregnant I was given a pre-natal vitamin that was extra high in omega-3 because it is excellent for baby brain development ( I think I’m remembering what I was told correctly). A diet rich omega-3 fatty acids, that can be found in tuna, can help to prevent, dementia, depression, neuropsychiatric disorders, asthma and inflammatory disorders.
You’ve heard doctors say to eat 2 to three servings of fish a week. They say that because fish is so good for you it is an excellent source of protein. It is lean, meaning it’s low in fat, unlike other kinds of meat and it is rich in vitamin D and calcium.
Eat healthy tuna .
