6a00e54fc8012e88330133f2427c3e970b-400wiThis Super Food Recipe and information about tuna and salba seed comes to us from Dr. Robert Rey:

8 Times the Omega-3 Fatty Acids of Tuna in Salba Seed

While tuna is the obvious super food, for its omega-3 fatty acids, which do everything from decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease to acting as an anti-inflammatory, possessing benefits ranging from weight management, diabetes management, bone and joint health, skin and hair appearance, and more..

In fact, the other super food in this recipe is the little-known Salba Seed. Salba contains 8x more Omega-3s than salmon, 25% more dietary fiber than flax seed, 30% more antioxidants than blueberries, and more. It provides protein, while being low in calories or carbs. I wanted to keep this short, but I can give you more details about the health benefits of Salba Seed.
