Everything You Need to Know About Cod Liver Oil
Here at Nutravita HQ, we’ve been busy formulating a high strength cod liver oil (1000mg per soft gel), an everyday supplement for all-around optimal health. Cod liver oil has been celebrated for its rich nutrient profile since it provides essential omega-3 fatty acids and is naturally packed with vitamins A and D to collectively help support brain, vision, heart, joint and bone health. Each easy-to-swallow soft gel provides 80mg EPA and 90mg DHA and a boost of vitamin A (800ug), vitamin D (5ug) and a generous amount of vitamin E for its powerful antioxidant capabilities. So what makes our Cod Liver Oil Supplement so powerful?
Keep Your Heart Health in Check
Omega-3s can help promote cardiovascular health. Those who regularly consume omega-3 have a lower risk of stroke and heart disease. The omegas in Cod Liver Oil have also been shown to reduce the “bad” type of cholesterol and help increase levels of “good” cholesterol.
Support Healthy Joints and Your Bones
As we age, the cushioning between the joints known as cartilage can diminish leading to joint pain and inflammation. The anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3s can do wonders for our joints and mobility. Vitamin D is also praised for its role in the maintenance of normal bones and teeth which explains why Cod Liver Oil is a popular choice when it comes to age-related joint care and bone loss.
Provide Immune Support
We’ve ensured that each soft gel provides 100% of the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) for both vitamin A and vitamin D. Vitamin A is closely involved in the production and function of our white blood cells which clear away invading pathogens. Vitamin D is known to enhance the function of our immune cells to protect the body from infection and disease. The combination of Vitamin A and D in our supplement works together to effectively support the immune system.
Boosts Brain Health
Since omega-3 is a major building block of the brain, it plays a key role in the normal brain development of foetuses and breastfed infants. Studies also suggest that consuming omega-3s may even help to prevent and protect against cognitive decline as we grow older.
Promote Vision Health
Omega-3s have been shown to reduce the risk of certain eye diseases including dry eye, macular degeneration and may also relieve chronic inflammation around the eyes. DHA is also found in the retina, the part of your eye that’s required for visual recognition- so if you’re not on top of your omega-3 intake, your vision can be directly impacted! Omega-3s also contribute to the normal eye development of the foetus during pregnancy and right throughout infancy.
As you’d expect, our Cod Liver Oil does contain fish and so if you’re following a vegan or vegetarian diet, or allergic to fish why not take a look at our vegan and fish free Omega 3 formula.
