Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 30, 2006


I’ve always known that tuna made me feel better but I never quite understood why. It has very little B vitamins and some magnesium, but maybe it was the DHA content all along? Maybe, it was because it contained all three…

DHA

The most efficient natural source of pre-formed DHA and EPA is oily fish such as mackerel, sardines, herring, salmon and fresh tuna. Tuna oil is particularly interesting in that it contains a five to one ratio of DHA to EPA, which is similar to the ratio found in human breast milk.

Adequate DHA whether preformed or converted from ALA ­ is required to ensure the healthy function of cell membranes of neurons in brain grey matter and in the retina of the eye. Preformed DHA and EPA together help to maintain a healthy heart and circulation.
