Scientists strongly agree on the various health benefits of consuming tuna, and recommend that adults and children also include fish in their diets. Studies in children have also shown that a link may exist between consumption of tuna and intelligence.
Like professionals in the industry, ATUNA also considers knowing how often your child is consuming tuna.
A recent study from the University of Pennsylvania of Nursing found that a child who eats more tuna has, on average, a high IQ and less sleep disturbances.
The reason for this is the presence of Omega-3 fatty acids in this fish. These play a role in the neurological functioning of the brain.
One of the conclusions to be drawn from this study is that fish should be integrated gradually into the child’s diet. The earlier the latter is introduced to fish, including tuna, the sooner they can reject it, the study co-author said.
Similar studies have also shown that children who consume fish regularly have better language and communication skills, unlike those who do not consume fish regularly.
Tuna is one of the most consumed fish around the world. The multiple species of tuna meet the same benefits in terms of diet. Because depending on the species, the tuna can weigh from 2 kilos to several hundred kilos (the bluefin tuna can thus exceed 800 kilos). Rich in protein, tuna also has a lot of omega 3 fatty acids.
The latter are beneficial on cardiovascular function, while on the other hand, tuna remains low in cholesterol and other bad fats.
These benefits are further reinforced for athletes and especially for bodybuilding practitioners.
Canned tuna in its natural state is a low calorie food that has less than 150 kcal / 100 g. It only contains 4 to 6 g of lipids which are largely omega 3. Found primarily in oily fish, they play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and the development of certain cancers.
Canned tuna is also a great way to stock up on protein. It provides essential amino acids necessary for growth in particular and contains vitamin PP which contributes to the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Finally, it is very rich in iron, as well as magnesium, essential nutrients that our bodies too often lack.
