Tuna is one of the healthiest foods in the world. It not only tastes great but is a good source of B3 (niacin), vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin D, proteins and phosphorus. Tuna also happens to be a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid, a great nourishing agent to your skin. But this is not the only benefit we get from tuna. To mark the occasion of World Tuna Day today, we let you in on other skin benefits of Omega 3.
- Your natural skin guard
Omega 3 fatty acid is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Research shows that fats protect the skin cells against the harmful UV rays of the sun and control how the body responds to these rays, thus reducing the damage caused from the sun.
- Wrinkles no more
Pollution, unhealthy lifestyle and bad diet are some of the contributing factors that affect your skin collagen. These in turn lead to faster development of wrinkles and fine lines. Eating foods with a higher amount of omega 3 fatty acids will help support your skin structure.
- Helps in hydration
Omega 3 is a crucial part of your skin’s fat content and helps to lock in the moisture of your skin. If skin is compromised on moisture, it becomes dry and rough leading to irritation. Consuming omega 3 strengthens this lock and prevents breakouts, thus making your skin significantly less sensitive.
What is World Tuna Day?
In 2016, the UN declared 2 May as World Tuna Day. It is a global call to keep tuna fishing under control. The day is celebrated to make people aware about the over fishing of tuna.
