The salmon provides over 200%* B-12, over 100% Vitamin D, and 50% Omega 3s.  The combined ingredients then give you 100% B-6, over 400% Vitamin C, 100% magnesium and some manganese. This dish can help with insomnia, memory, dizziness, fatigue and emotional issues, with the B-6 aiding your confusion and light sensitivity.

As a bonus there is over 90% calcium and 80% iron in this dish – this helps the brain in a couple of ways.  The calcium helps to send messages to the inside of the brain cells aiding with memory, it also helps the body absorb vitamin D, so it is best to have vitamin D with calcium in your meal. Iron is important for haemoglobin & carrying oxygen around the body, which in turn makes you feel more energised.
