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 growth in children, and normal cognitive brain and thyroid function.
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 Europe. As vitamin D has many important roles in the body, including maintaining muscle function, immune system function and normal bones and teeth, it’s a good idea to consume dietary sources of vitamin D to top up your levels.
