B-vitamins are particularly known for their role in energy production, creation/repair of our DNA and also maintaining heart and brain health. They are involved in every single aspect of generating essential energy in the body and help maintain energy levels by releasing energy from the food we eat.
Cod contains almost 1/3 of our requirements for Vitamin B3. Phosphorus and B3 are heavily involved in supplying and producing energy for our body. B3 also plays a role in managing cholesterol levels (certain types of cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks).
Cod is a great source of iodine, it contains 131% of the reference value and over 32x the amount of iodine compared to chicken. Iodine and selenium are needed to form thyroid hormones - the thyroid is the gland responsible for our metabolic rate and helps determine how many calories we burn each day.
