Uses For Cod Liver Oil
Cod liver oil has a long history of traditional use for supporting immune health, primarily attributed to vitamins A and D. Vitamin D receptors are found on most immune cells, including monocytes, T cells and B cells and research suggests that it has an immunomodulatory effect. Additionally, the essential fatty acids in cod liver oil help promote a healthy inflammatory response.*
Promotes Heart Health:
EPA and DHA from cod liver oil encourage cardiovascular health by supporting triglyceride and lipid metabolism, maintaining healthy blood flow and promoting healthy platelet function. In addition, studies indicate these essential fatty acids help maintain blood vessel integrity. One study also suggests EPA may moderate protein kinase C, supporting arterial smooth muscle cells.*
Supports Joint Health:
Cod liver oil is important for optimal joint function. The essential fatty acids EPA and DHA maintain a healthy inflammatory balance as well as healthy cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase enxyme activity, providing support for joint comfort and mobility. Cod liver oil also moderates prostaglandin and leukotriene production, supporting healthy connective tissue.*
