Other key nutrients found in our fish species in varying amounts include selenium, iodine and vitamin D. Selenium helps to maintain a healthy immune system and thyroid function, as well as maintaining normal hair and nails, while iodine contributes to normal child growth, normal cognitive brain function, and normal thyroid function. Iodine and selenium are found in our classic Fish Fingers- who knew good nutrition could be so tasty?
Vitamin D is the so-called ‘sunshine vitamin’, as it’s made in the skin in the presence of sunlight at certain times in the year. However, vitamin D deficiency is an increasingly recognised issue in Ireland. As vitamin D has many important roles in the body, including maintaining muscle function, immune system function and normal bones and teeth, it’s therefore good to consume dietary sources of vitamin D to top up your levels. Our salmon products provide a tasty source of vitamin D- so why not try one of these tonight?
