Trustworthy Tuna

I guess we all keep at least one can of tuna in our pantry?

And why not....each can of tuna contains just less than 1 mg of vitamin B6 which encourages the production of the happy hormone serotonin.

It is high in protein and vitamin B, which means it's gerat for boosting energy levels.

It's rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which play a major role in lowering cholesterol levels and help to protect against conditions such as hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's disease and depression.

Fresh tuna contains high levels of mercury and should only be consumed once in two weeks, canned light tuna can be eaten up to 3 times of week because it has the lowest levels of mercury.
