Who Should Supplement with Cod Liver Oil?

Anyone who eats the SAD (Standard American Diet) should consider it. Even those that eat Healthy should consider increasing your Omega 3 levels. The problem today is we get way too much Omega 6 and not enough omega-3. Omega 3 is considered an essential fatty acid which means we have to eat this in our diets. Our body does not create it.

Reasons to Increase Omega 3 levels.

Many reasons exist including the following but there are many more reasons.

  • Heart Health
  • Immune System Health
  • Joint Health
  • Nutritional help for the Mothers to be
  • Anti Inflammatory

Why Cod liver Oil Instead of Fish Oil?

The Sunshine Vitamin! Most of us are deficient in Vitamin D. Almost all of us are in the late fall thru late spring when we do not get out in the sun enough. So in the mid winter you just cannot get enough Vitamin D – So here is Cod Liver-Oil ready to take care of your Sunshine needs.

Also the medical community is still clinging to the old belief that the sun is bad for you. They will retract that statement but they must do it slowly so they never actually have to admit they were WRONG.

Important note on Vitamin D. It is a fat soluble vitamin and if you are not getting it from the sun you can collect too much in your system. You really should get you levels checked but if you can’t do that you should take it when you are not getting much sunlight and you should be fine.

When too take the cod oil?

You should take another kind of supplement during summer for sure. I would recommend fish oil or Krill oil. So I personally switch to Cod oil around late fall and switch to Krill oil come late spring. This can help with seasonal depression too. Do the benefits of cod liver-oil ever stop?

High in Vitamin A Too.

It just keeps getting better. Vitamin A is related to immune health and good eye sight. SO not only are you getting all the benefits of increasing your Omega 3 Levels and increasing your sunshine vitamin but also Vitamin A. Goodness gracious!


Cod oil is so beneficial for our health – why not give it a go this winter? Just make sure you stop taking it when you start getting in the sun more come spring. You should make sure you get out in that sun too. Don’t believe the hype. You definitely do not wan to get sun burned but you certainly want to get a good share of your Sunshine Vitamin. Good Luck and enjoy feeling better!
