Cod Liver Oil

Cod Liver Oil Information

Cod liver oil is an important natural source of vitamins A and D. It has been used since at least the 18th century as a folk remedy for a digestive aid and appetite stimulant; in the treatment of 'wasting' diseases and rheumatism. By the early 20th century its medicinal value was linked to the presence of these vitamins. Today, it is used in the treatment of rickets and other diseases, and as an ingredient in animal feeds. Cod Liver Oil contains Vitamin A, which is essential for the immune system, bone growth, night vision, cellular growth, testicular and ovarian function, Vitamin D, which is essential for the absorption and utilisation of calcium and potassium, which are required for skeletal growth, EPA and DHA, omega 3 fatty acids, which are converted in the body to produce prostaglandins that affect a wide variety of physiological processes due to their modulating effect on the action of hormones. It is thought that EPA and DHA may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. DHA seems essential for normal brain development in unborn babies.
