Cod Liver Oil FAQs
What are the benefits of taking cod liver oil?
Cod liver oil has been used for centuries for its many important health benefits. Like other fatty fish, cod is a great source of omega-3s, which are fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own. Cod liver oil promotes heart, brain, vision, joint, and immune health, and it actually contains more vitamins than the averagefish oil supplement.
Because it’s extracted from the livers of cod, this oil is rich in fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A and D3. Vitamin A supports healthy skin and vision, and vitamin D3 promotes immune, cardiovascular, teeth, bone, and muscle health.
What is the best source of cod liver oil?
Other than catching our own fresh cod and extracting the oil from its liver, the best source of cod liver oil is nutritional supplements. At Carlson, our cod liver oil is closely managed from sea to store; third-party certified; FDA-registered laboratory tested; and backed by our freshness, potency, and purity guarantee.
How much cod liver oil a day is safe?
There is no official recommendation for the amount of cod liver oil for kids/children, teens, and adults. In general, a ½ teaspoon for children and an average dose is 1-2 teaspoons per day but up to a tablespoon for adults is usually considered safe.
Should I take cod liver oil every day?
The American Heart Association recommends we eat two 3.5-ounce servings of fatty fish per week to get the recommended intake of omega-3s. However, most of our diets do not include this amount of fish, so a daily supplement can be a great option.
