Cod Liver Oil General Information
Cod Liver Oil comes from fatty fish, such as: salmon, mackerel, raw herring and sardines are high in vitamins A and D, and essential omega 3 oils. For hundreds of years Cod Liver Oil was used in the prevention and treatment of everything from minor infections to the most severe cases of chronic joint pain. By the mid 1800s, Cod Liver Oil was being successfully prescribed in the treatment and prevention of rickets, even though there were no scientific studies to explain its effectiveness.

Cod liver oil is made by cooking cod livers with steam and then pressing/decanting the cooked livers to extract the oil. By contrast, fish oils are extracted from the cooked whole body tissues of fatty fish during the manufacture of fishmeal. Cod liver oil and fish oil are similar but have a somewhat different composition: fish oil has a much lower content of vitamins A and D compared to liver oils.

Cod Liver Oil Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Cod Liver Oil helps the liver, and it strengthens bones. It improves brain function, nervous system, and the production of prostaglandin. Numerous scientific studies have shown that the elongated omega-3 fatty acids in Cod Liver Oil improves brain function, memory and learning and behavioral disorders, stress response, manic depression, and allergies. It relieves many skin disorders. Cold Liver plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of heart conditions. It acts as a natural blood thinner, and some evidence suggests it reduces cholesterol levels as well. Cod Liver Oil works as a lubricant to alleviate stiffness and pain in the joints, improves bone mineral density, and it slows down damage caused by arthritis. Recent studies show that it can be effective in treating digestive and bowel disorders. Cold Liver Oil improves breast milk and promotes optimal brain development in the fetus, while increasing the levels of vitamin A for the prevention of infections.

In 2005 researchers at the University of California reported that Vitamin D might lower the risk of developing different types of cancers, cutting in half the chances of getting breast, ovarian, or colon cancer.

A study done in 2000, printed by The Elements of Health Newsletter of Arizona, reported that pregnant women using cod liver oil have infants with a lower risk for juvenile type 1 diabetes. Use of cod liver oil during pregnancy associated with lower risk of Type I diabetes in the offspring. This effect was found only in mothers taking cod liver oil, not in mothers taking multivitamin supplements. Cod liver oil taken by nursing mothers improves the fatty acid profile in breast milk to promote optimal brain development and also increases levels of vitamin A to prevent infections.

Cod liver oil is also rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which is another name for Omega 3 Fatty Acid. The body makes this fatty acid from omega-3 linoleic acid as an important link in the chain of fatty acids that ultimately results in prostaglandinís, which are a group of compounds that are extremely potent mediators of a diverse group called physiological processes. It is very important for the proper function of the brain and nervous system. Those individuals who have consumed large amounts of polyunsaturated oils, especially hydrogenated oils, or who have impaired pancreatic function, such as diabetics, may not be able to produce EPA and will, therefore, lack important prostaglandinís unless they consume oily fish or take a cod liver oil supplement.

Cod Liver Oil Dosage Information
Healthy people who frequently eat fatty fish (several times per week) have no need to supplement with Cod Liver Oil. To treat any of the above conditions it is best to seek the advice of your healthcare provider before using Cod Liver Oil.

Because the body naturally produces Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight, a common way to benefit from this oil while avoiding a Vitamin D overdose is to take Cod Liver Oil during the late fall through winter. The ideal dosage and timing of consumption depends on your seasonal sun exposure (providing natural Vitamin D production). The only way to be certain of any possible Vitamin D deficiencies or overdosing (from supplements) is to have your levels checked.

Cod Liver Oil Safety & Interaction Information
Cod Liver Oil is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses, but for those with heart conditions, or diabetes, it is best to consult your physician before taking Cod Liver Oil supplements.

There has been some thought of the presence of contaminates in Cod Liver Oil. Things like heavy metal: mercury, cadmium and lead. The fact of this matter is consumer need not worry when it comes to Cod Liver Oil. This oil in the US must be tested according to protocols of the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) and approved free of detectable levels of 32 contaminants before the can be imported into this country. Another fact is mercury is water-soluble so, it may be present in the flesh of fish but it is not present in the oil.
