Cod Liver Oil 1000mg
As the name suggests, Cod Liver oil comes from the fresh livers of cod. And while it may contain less omega-3 fatty acids than regular fish oils, it boasts higher levels of Vitamin A and D. The simultaneous occurrence of these nutrients have shown efficacy in many trials.
Both Vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids cannot be produced by the body, but instead must come from our diets.

Through the ages, cod liver oil has been used to boost immunity.
