rosemary, mixed tocopherols, ascorbyl palmitate, and citric acid assures optimal freshness and stability.
Omega Cod Liver Liquid is pharmaceutical grade omega-3 oil. The cod is harvested from plentiful stocks off the
coast of Norway. NutriMedical ensures the cod used in this oil are sourced according to stringent environmental
standards to ensure abundant stocks year after year. Omega Cod Liver Liquid undergoes third-party testing
using American Oil Chemists’ Society (“AOCS”) international protocols to guarantee potency and freshness.
This formula is purified to surpass all national and international standards for environmental pollutants,
including dioxins, PCBs, pesticides, and heavy metals, including mercury; and also meets stringent European
Pharmacopoeia Standards for freshness and purity. Omega Cod Liver Liquid also exceeds all purity standards
recommended by the Council for Responsible Nutrition.
Cod liver oil has been consumed for over 200 years. The oil took a leading role in the knowledge of rickets. Its
preventive and therapeutic value (along with sunlight) against rickets in young infants was confirmed in 1922.
Essential fatty acids, especially omega-3s have been linked to visual and cognitive development in infants
and children and cerebrovascular/cognitive health in adults. Dietary lipids influence the cellular biophysical
membrane and act on a variety of pathways including gene signaling and the activities of proteins.
Research demonstrates the role of cod liver oil in supporting skeletal, cardiovascular and neurological health;
as well as the health of hair, skin and nails. Cod liver oil also has anti-inflammatory properties. Meta-analysis
of three studies lends support to the hypothesis that intake of cod liver oil during the first year of life reduces the
risk of Type 1 diabetes. [4,5,6]
Each 8-oz bottle supplies 52 servings (1 tsp each) with each teaspoon of Omega Cod Liver Liquid supplying
363 mgs of EPA and 545 mgs of DHA; (Compare to Omega Oils 600 with 360 mgs of EPA and 240 mgs DHA).
Per teaspoon, the formula also supplies 1500 IU of Vitamin A (as cis Retinol) and 100 IU of Vitamin D (as
cholecalciferol) with only 20 mgs of cholesterol and 45 calories. It is Proposition 65-compliant depending upon
the dose consumed.
