Getting tired of Salmon? Try Tuna!
There was a time when tuna was king among seafood, and all other fish were mere serfs amid the surf. In recent years, however, it has lost its seat as the country’s favorite fish in favor of shrimp. This is, in a big way, due to fears that arose around the mercury content of certain cans of tuna. However, our Bothell sushi restaurant would like to remind you of the many merits of this amazing fish.
Great Nutrition Benefits
Tuna is a fatty fish, which means that it is a great source of the omega-3 fatty acids that everybody needs. It is also full of healthy, low-cholesterol protein, giving you twenty-five grams of protein in a single three ounce serving. On top of this, it’s a strong source of phosphorus, vitamin B12, selenium, and niacin.
These nutrients serve to stabilize your blood sugar, boost your immune system, and purge toxins from your system that may cause certain types of cancer. In the end, a low-mercury serving of tuna has benefits that far outweigh the possible drawbacks.
