Cod liver oil (Gadus morhua oleum) is a nutritional supplement derived from liver of Cod fish. As with most fish oils, it has high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Cod liver oil is also rich in vitamin A and D.

In the western Atlantic Ocean, Cod has a distribution north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and around both coasts of Greenland; in the eastern Atlantic, it is found from the Bay of Biscay north to the Arctic Ocean, including the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and areas around Iceland and the Barents Sea.

It can grow to 2 meters in length (6ft) and weigh up to 96 kilos (210 lbs). It can live for 25 years and usually attains sexual maturity between ages two and four, but Cod in the northeast Arctic can take as long as eight years to fully mature. Coloring is brown to green, with spots on the dorsal side, shading to silver ventrally. A lateral line is clearly visible. Its habitat ranges from the shoreline down to the continental shelf.

Cod liver oil promotes growth and helps with the build-up of the skeleton in young children. For adults, it is a general tonic which also helps with treatment of anemia, unexplained weight loss, rickets and premature aging of the skin. It is recommended in winter in northern regions with little daylight to ensure vitamin D supply.

Dosage

Take 1-2 capsules 3 times daily, with plenty of water.
