FAQs

What is cod liver oil?

Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement which is available in a number of forms, including capsules and liquid.

 

Cod liver oil contains 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.

How much omega 3 should I consume?

The NHS recommends that you should eat at least two portions of fish per week and that one of these should be oily fish, in order to get the benefits from the omega 3 fatty acids that fish oil contains. Oily fish include herring, salmon and mackerel.

 

If your diet does not include oily fish, then you may wish to take a supplement to ensure that you still get these benefits.

What is cod liver oil good for?

The DHA which cod liver oil contains helps with the maintenance of normal vision and normal brain function.

 

A daily intake of 250mg of cod liver oil helps to support the normal functioning of the heart.

How many cod liver oil capsules should you take per day?

A cod liver oil supplement is a quick and easy way to add extra nutrients to your lifestyle.

 

You simply need to take one capsule of Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules per day for optimum support.

When is best to take cod liver oil capsules?

Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules can be taken at any time of the day so it is best to choose a time which fits in well with your daily routine and one where you are likely to remember to take them.

 

You will be able to make the most of the benefits of cod liver oil by taking a supplement consistently.

 

These supplements should be taken with a meal so perhaps breakfast, lunch or dinner time would be a good time to take them.

Does cod liver oil contain vitamin D?

Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules contain vitamins A and D.

 

Vitamin D helps to maintain normal bones and contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation  of calcium.

 

The main source of vitamin D for humans is from sunlight which means that it can be difficult to get all of the vitamin D you need, especially during the winter months.

 

Therefore the NHS recommends that you should take a supplement with vitamin D daily.

 

Vitamin A is important in many of the body’s processes. It helps to maintain normal vision  and skin.

Can vegans and vegetarians take cod liver oil?

Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, directly derived from fish and therefore unsuitable to both vegans and vegetarians.
