Answer
Dear Mufid

Thank you so much for your question!

Tuna is a good start, if you don't eat other fish. Some canned tuna products can give you quite a good intake of Omega-3 fatty acids. You can try to eat tuna 2 to 3 times a week.

What else can you try? Two of your best natural sources of Omega-3 would be walnuts and ground flaxseed or flaxseed oil. You can also focus on getting milk, cheese, eggs and yogurt from grass-fed animals. Grass-fed beef and chicken will also help you.

In addition, many vegetables are also good sources of Omega-3. Examples of these are spinach, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, green beans and squash. Strawberries are also helpful.

As for selenium, prime sources would be brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, tuna, grass-fed beef and lamb, rye, chicken, turkey, mushrooms, eggs, brown rice, cabbage, spinach.

As you can see, Mufid, you do have many other options, even though fish remains one of the best choices to increase Omega-3 intake. I would say that if you have the canned tuna and a variety of the items I mention here, you should see an improvement in the levels of these nutrients.

I hope I have been of some help to you and that you find a nutrition plan that works for you!

Best wishes

I have been using juicing as an integral part of my family's diet and nutrition program for almost 15 years. I have developed a passion for juicing as an easy way of gaining access to the required daily portion of fresh fruits and vegetables - especially where parents are struggling with kids who won't eat veggies.
