Sealect Tuna, a long-time sponsor of Thai volleyball, stresses the importance of lean protein in athlete’s diets, critical for building and maintaining muscle mass. Plus, tuna is loaded with Omega 3, and is a good source of potassium, vitamin B12, and selenium—an antioxidant that helps boost the immune system. It is no wonder tuna is the protein of choice for competitive athletes and fitness enthusiasts around the world.
