Tuna burger, the natural recipe with olives, capers, and fennel seeds. Tuna is a food very rich in mineral salts (selenium, phosphorus, and magnesium). And of omega 3. This strengthens bones and muscles, and even improves mood.
It can even improve mood. But first and foremost, tuna strengthens the muscles and bones and, thanks to the Omega 3 that it has, is a true elixir for the heart, circulation and also against the aging of tissues.
