Cod Liver Oil – Why?

Honesty, it is pretty darn good for you! Here are some reasons why you should be taking it every day – (apparently Nana was on the money with this home remedy – it’s gold!)

👉🏼 It has naturally occurring vitamin A & D, & LOTS of it!  Choosing a natural source means your body absorbs, digests & uses it a lot quicker, than if you choose a synthetic formula.

👉🏼 OK, vitamin A is found in cod liver oil but not regular fish oils.  What’s so good about Vitamin A? It hugely beneficial for your immunity, eye & skin health plus it’s great for pregnancy.

👉🏼 And I mentioned Vitamin D. It is essential for strong bones, muscles & sleep quality.  Plus, it also helps protect the skin from sun damage.  It is one of the best natural ways to get vitamin D3 – that is the same type of vitamin D we get from being in the sun.

👉🏼 Numerous paybacks for gut health due to its super anti-inflammatory properties!  In turn this makes it a fabulous choice for people with intestinal inflammation or even system wide inflammation (think IBS & Leaky Gut Syndrome).  The vitamin D encourages the antimicrobial molecules in your system helping with the good/bad bacteria balance.

👉🏼 Omega 3s, lots of studies showing a positive effect on anxiety, depression, & improvements in cognitive function & learning.  The omega 3s assist with hormonal balance which means they also help with skin inflammation, hormonal acne & reduce PMS.

Some pretty good reasons to take it.  The brand you choose can impact your views A LOT (honestly some have a weird after taste).  My fav is Nordic Naturals – they have a high-quality product, 100% wild Artic cod, no synthetic vitamins or additives (colours, flavours, or preservatives), no GMOs, & gluten free.  A total winner of a product & no fishy aftertaste…winning! 

My fav (with Mum’s orchid – pretty right!)

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
