Tuna is an excellent source of selenium, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and protein. It is a very good source of phosphorus as well as a good source of vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), choline, vitamin D, and the minerals potassium, iodine, and magnesium. Some of the selenium is found in the form of selenoneine, which may be especially valuable in terms of its antioxidant properties. In addition, it provides valuable amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (including eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid or DHA).
Researchers have recently discovered that tuna contains the mineral selenium in an unusual form called selenoneine. This form of selenium plays an important role in the health of the fish by serving as an antioxidant and protecting the fish’s red blood cells from free radical damage. Interestingly, it is also able to bind together with mercury compounds in the fish’s body (including methyl mercury, or MeHg) and lower their risk of mercury-related problems. Because there are approximately 20-30 micrograms of selenoneine in a 4-ounce serving of tuna, we are likely to get some of this same antioxidant protection when we eat tuna
