What exactly is cod liver oil?
Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, containing the omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, or EPA and DHA, as they are more commonly known.
Your body cannot produce these fatty acids on its own and so you therefore need to get them through your diet, or else by taking an additional supplement.
Cod liver oil is available in a number of different forms, including capsules and liquid.
What can cod liver oil help with?
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 500mg of cod liver oil, which is a source of EPA & 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 to increase omega 3 fatty acids in the body
Omega 3 fatty acids are a group of essential nutrients, all of which play important roles within the body.
There are three main types of omega 3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA and DHA.
Oily fish, including salmon, trout and mackerel, is one of the best sources of omega 3 available to us in our diets.
It is for this reason that the NHS recommends that we consume at least two portions of fish per week.
However, fish is not to everyone’s taste. And if you do not like it, then you may wish to consider taking a fish oil supplement instead.
These Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil 500mg capsules are high in omega 3 fatty acids, providing you with 40mg of EPA and 40mg DHA per capsule.
Cod liver oil: a valuable source of vitamins A and D
Cod liver oil not only contains valuable omega 3 fatty acids, it is also high in vitamins A and D.
This is because it is extracted from fish livers, in particular the livers of cod, which are known to be rich in these fat soluble vitamins.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, can helps contribute to the maintenance of normal eyes, skin and the normal functioning of the brain.
Vitamin D helps to maintain normal bones, thanks to its role in regulating calcium absorption in the body.
With these cod liver oil tablets, you are getting a dose of multiple vitamins and minerals each day in one supplement.
