  Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) pose a threat to society in general and the breakthrough the cost of your treatment of different agencies Makes health ARISE new therapies to country clubs ITS slow progress.

  The Increase in the consumption of saturated fat and sedentary lifestyles, act by accelerating the advance of CVD. Poor nutrition causes there has a sharp decline in the consumption of nutrients: such as omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

  The daily intake of omega-3 is lower than the recommended by major health agencies (WHO, EFSA) making it Necessary to Enhance ITS contribution to get the beneficial effects derived from consumption ITS.

An alternative is the use of functional foods rich in omega-3.

  The use of a can of light tuna developed as a functional food has managed to Increase the daily intake of omega-3 (Getting to increase HDL levels) but has managed to reduce the Present levels of lipids in the blood.
