Cod liver oil is a nutrient-dense source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and high levels of essential vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin D. Both adults and children can benefit from cod liver oil. Omega 3 helps to make the skin glow and increase the vitamin and mineral absorptions in the body. It can lower the need for anti-inflammatory drugs and lower the symptoms related to various disorders like depression and anxiety. Omega fatty acid helps the body produce sex hormones and ensures health productive system and a more successful pregnancy. Cod liver contains a healthy balance of Vitamin D which is integral for strengthing bones as it is specifically beneficial for women during pregnancy and postmenopausal women as there is an increased risk for vitamin D deficiency. Cod liver oil is good for lowering the symptoms of high blood pressure, controlling insulin resistance, managing glucose and balancing cholesterol level, thus helping to lower the complications related to diabetes like kidney diseases. It is useful to athletes who are required to maintain bone density and recover from intense exercise or physical training.
The combination of nutrients helps to relieve joint stiffness, improve cardiovascular health and is effective in improving the oral health. It also fights aging by preventing age-related macular degeneration, improving cognitive performance in old age, and promoting bone health by reducing pain and swelling from arthritis and reducing the risk for osteoarthritis. Other benefits include lower risk for autoimmune disease, treating ear infections and allergies. Cod liver oil has been correlated with improvements in kidney disease and tuberculosis. Overall, the oil promotes hormonal, cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and neurological health.
While most can safely use this, the oil can act as a blood thinner, so medication should be taken after consulting with the doctor first before using cod liver oil: pregnant women, asthmatics, people taking high blood pressure medicine, and anticoagulants. Possible side effects include belching, bad breath, heartburn, nausea, bloody stools, low blood pressure, and nosebleeds. Moreover, it is important to maintain a balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, with slightly more omega-6 in the diet. Omega-6 promotes inflammation, and omega-3 suppresses inflammation, so the balance between them keeps the immune system working properly by producing defense mechanisms yet not developing high inflammation.
