White fish such as haddock are rich sources of protein which are the building blocks of muscle tissue and consequently critical for muscle growth. Fish also contains Omega 3-fatty acids, minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium as well as vitamins A, D, B6 and B12.
These nutrients play various roles in ensuring proper functioning of your body. The Omega 3-fatty acids in haddock can help prevent tumors from forming, relieve inflammation and pain, stimulate brain function, lower bad cholesterol levels, prevent heart disease and help treat respiratory diseases. The minerals are vital for keeping our kidneys working properly and the vitamins are excellent for nourishing and protecting the nervous system, building healthy bones and preventing eye diseases.
