Why Supplement with Cod Liver Oil

Cod Liver oil has been one of the most beneficial supplements in recent years. Known to offer numerous health-promoting effects, this omega-3 supplement is made from the Gadus fish, popular known as cod, and has been a traditional health food in Nordic countries. The most common species of cod are the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), most supplements are made from this fish which lives in the colder waters and deeper sea regions throughout the North Atlantic, and the Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus), found in the northern Pacific.

People have known the benefits from cod fish in northern Europe for centuries as this unique oil can help enhance immunity and provide natural relief for joint pain and stiff muscles. Cod Liver oil contains anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and it is also a nutrient-dense source of essential vitamin such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Each teaspoon of cod liver oil has about 41 calories and 4.5 grams of fat according to the USDA, split between monounsaturated, saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Cod Liver oil supplementation can help reduce levels of pain and swelling due to inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis, and decrease morning stiffness and pain in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, Cod Liver oil can help decrease risk of heart disease, prevent blood clotting, lower high cholesterol and high triglycerides, prevent and treat diabetes, lower high blood pressure, support brain health, and reduce the risk for eye disorders such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

With so many potential health benefits, Cod Liver oil is a highly recommended supplement to improve overall health, particularly for those who are lacking omega-3 in their diets.
