What is in cod liver oil?
Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, extracted from fish livers, in particular the livers of cod.
It is particularly valued for containing the omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, or EPA and DHA, as they are also known.
Because our bodies cannot produce these fatty acids on their own, we have to get them through our diets.
Or we can also choose to take an additional supplement.
Cod liver oil can be taken in liquid form or else as a capsule.
What are the benefits of taking cod liver oil?
The DHA in cod liver oil helps with the maintenance of normal vision and normal brain function. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg DHA.
A daily intake of this 1000mg of cod liver oil, which contains EPA and DHA fatty acids,also helps to support the normal functioning of the heart. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA & DHA.
How best to increase levels of omega 3 fatty acids in the body
There are three main types of omega 3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA and DHA.
A group of essential nutrients, these Omega 3 fatty acids all play vital roles within the body.
Oily fish (such as herring, salmon, trout and mackerel) is considered to be one of the best sources of omega 3. Because of this, the NHS recommends that we consume at least two portions of fish each week.
But if fish is just not your thing, then you may need to look for alternative sources of omega 3. And this is where a fish oil supplement can play a useful role.
These Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil 1000mg capsules are high in omega 3 fatty acids, providing you with a valuable 80mg of EPA and 80mg DHA per capsule.
Cod liver oil contains a useful source of vitamins A and D
Not only is cod liver oil rich in omega 3 fatty acids, it is also a useful source of vitamins A and D.
This is because it is extracted from fish livers, which are known to be rich in these fat soluble vitamins.
Vitamin A, or retinol, helps contribute to the maintenance of normal vision and skin, as well as the normal functioning of the brain.
Whilst Vitamin D helps to maintain healthy bones and the regulation of calcium absorption.
With these cod liver oil tablets, you are getting a dose of multiple vitamins and minerals each day in one supplement.
