Vitamin D is very important for bone health, immune function and the growth of our cells. 100g of halibut contains almost 100% of the reference intake for vitamin D. Deficiency can increase our risk of infection and decrease absorption of dietary calcium and phosphorus which can then lead to reduced bone mineral density.
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.
Halibut contains 40% of the reference intake for B12 per 100g, 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 critical ingredients needed to produce and maintain our bodies energy supply.
100g of halibut contains a high amount of selenium which meets 83% of the reference value. 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.
