Cod Liver Oil is the oil derived from the liver of cod fish, and was traditionally given to children to prevent rickets, a bone deformity disease caused by vitamin D deficiency. Like many fish oils, cod liver oil is a good source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. What sets cod liver oil apart is its very high levels of vitamins A and D. Its tonic qualities make it a useful daily supplement for boosting immune function and resistance to infection.
