There tends to be more B vitamins in white fish than in dark fish. B vitamins are good for a lot of several health reasons. They increase your metabolism which will aid you to maintain a healthy weight. B vitamins are good for your skin, your cells and your immune system. A good immune system means that you’ll be healthy all around. White fish can help with that.

Selenium adds to some of the benefits that you’re already getting from those B vitamins. It is good for the skin and good for the cells. Proper intake of selenium can help prevent problems related to thyroid conditions.
