Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, directly derived from fish and therefore unsuitable for followers of both vegan and vegetarian diets.
You should take one of the Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil 240 Capsules per day, preferably with a meal.
It may help you to remember to take the supplement daily if you stick to a similar time each day. For instance, you could try taking it with your breakfast, as part of your daily routine.
Cod liver oil supplements do contain vitamin A.
Vitamin A is also known as retinol and has many important functions in the body, including supporting the normal functioning of the immune system and supporting normal vision.
Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil 240 Capsules also contain vitamin D.
The main source of vitamin D is direct sunlight and so it can be difficult to get enough of this during the winter months, or if you do not get to spend much time outside. This means that taking a supplement which contains additional vitamin D is a good idea.
Vitamin D helps to support normal calcium absorption, which helps to maintain normal bone health.
DHA, which is one of the omega 3 fatty acids that cod liver oil contains, aids the maintenance of normal vision* and normal brain function* as well as helping to contribute to the normal functioning of the heart**.
*DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and normal brain function. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA.
**EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA & DHA.
Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, which is extracted from the liver of cod.
Cod liver oil is a quick and easy way to obtain EPA and DHA essential Omega 3 fatty acids. Our bodies are unable to produce these omega 3 fatty acids and so we therefore need to get them through our diets.
Oily fish is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids and so the NHS recommends that you should eat at least two portion of fish such as salmon, sardines or mackerel each week.
But if you feel that you are not getting enough omega 3 fatty acids from your diet alone, then it may be a good idea to take an additional cod liver oil supplement.
Cod liver oil also contains vitamins A and D for added nutrition.
