WITH GREEN PEPPER
Because of its low energy value cod is a quality source of protein. At the same time eating cod can cause relaxation and can put you in a good mood because it contains a lot of tryptophan, an amino acid which the body uses to synthesize serotonin, the so-called happy hormone.
Like other types of fish from the northern seas, cod is useful in prevention and treatment of numerous diseases. It is highly recommended for people with atherosclerosis or heart diseases associated with diabetes.
It is a very rich source of selenium, phosphorus and useful omega-3 fatty acids and that is why it has a significant role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. It is also a good source of vitamin B-3, B-6 and B-12 which help lower homocysteine level, a risk factor for heart diseases.
Even though cod is considered to be a holiday meal, the benefits of eating cod are so numerous that it should make its way on our tables much more often during the whole year.
