B-vitamins are particularly known for their role in energy production, creation/repair of our DNA and also maintaining heart and brain health. B-vitamins 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.
Haddock is particularly high in B12, which is needed to form red blood cells, DNA and maintain our heart health. If we don't get enough, it can impact our energy levels, memory and mood - making us feel weak and tired.
Vitamin B3 and phosphorus are heavily involved in our energy supply and are critical for producing the energy we need for the day. 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).
B6 is an incredible vitamin which is especially important for our mood - it enters the brain to help produce the neurotransmitters; serotonin (known for feelings of happiness), dopamine (feelings of reward) and GABA (a calming neurotransmitter). Even a mild deficiency in B6 can result in disordered sleep and negative effects on our behavior and mood.
Haddock is also high in iodine and selenium, which 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.
