Norwegian Cod Liver Oil Is The Best!

October 15, 2015

 

I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to make my life simpler and easier.  That is why I use cod liver oil and not regular fish oil.  

Regular fish oil is processed from the flesh of tuna, herring, sardines or cod. The oil is called fish oil or Omega 3 oil. It is high in EPA and DHA which are nutrients used in every cell of our bodies.  

Trust me, you need EPA and DHA. If you want to research the tens of thousands of studies on Omega 3 fish oil, visit http://www.omega-research.com/. Caution: it isn’t very exciting unless you are a research nerd like I am. I once went to a conference that was 24 hours of lectures about Omega 3!

What is Cod Liver Oil?

Cod Liver oil is exactly what the name sounds like: the oil extracted from the livers of cod. In cod liver oil, you are getting fish oil, plus the Vitamins A and D that are found in the liver.  

So there is your 2 for 1 that we're all looking for:  Fish oil and fat soluble vitamins D and A in one easy dose.  

Cod Liver Oil: Super Healing Food

Many people, including me, consider cod liver oil to be one of the best traditional healing foods you can get your hands on. It all started in around the year 700 with those strong and hearty Vikings. They were fishermen who lived near coastlines in Norway. During the winter months with less sunlight and Vitamin D available, they needed to keep their immune systems strong. So they developed a way to extract the oil out of their catch, the cod fish. They were known to drink the oil to preserve their strength and health until Spring arrived. 

So how much cod liver oil does your body need? A good maintenance dose is 2000mg or 2 grams per day. But those who have diabetes, high triglycerides, depression, or joint issues will benefit from higher doses.
