What is Cod Liver Oil?
Cod Liver Oil differs from other fish oils because it is a nutrient rich source of Vitamin A and Vitamin D, each of our capsules contains 100% NRV of both these vitamins. Our Cod Liver Oil is sourced from the clean unpolluted waters of Iceland and comes from sustainable fisheries under governmental control. The Icelandic fish trade is one of their principal sources of income and great care is taken to ensure the quality of their produce, ensuring that the Cod Liver Oil is free from impurities. The extensive refining process means that our capsules are virtually taste free.
Why take Cod Liver Oil capsules?
Cod Liver Oil contains the important essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. Clinical studies have proven EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart, brain and vision. Essential fatty acids cannot be made within the body therefore they must be obtained from your diet. The Vitamin A found in cod liver oil contributes to maintenance of normal skin and Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function. Both vitamins contribute to the normal function of the our immune systems.
All our Cod Liver Oil products are carefully tested to Regulatory standards to ensure that they contain safe levels of heavy metals such as Cadmium, Mercury and Lead.
