Features

Super Cod Liver Oil is an excellent source of both vitamin A and vitamin D. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, known to promote healing by stimulating the immune system. It benefits the eyes as well as soft tissue. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is also fat-soluble and acts as a hormone to assist the body's absorption and utilization of calcium. It helps bones and teeth, stabilizes the nervous system and helps cardiovascular system, muscles and many body organs.
 
Although fish liver oils are excellent sources of preformed vitamin A, they should not be relied on as a source of essential fatty acids. You would consume too much vitamin A and D before getting what your body requires in omega oils.
