How it works

Cod Liver Oil contains the fat-soluble vitamins A and D. Vitamin A is involved in the maintenance of the structural and functional integrity of epithelial tissues. Additionally it is an antioxidant and acts as a co-factor in many biochemical reactions. Vitamin D is involved in the absorption and utilisation of calcium, normal calcification of the skeleton and various cellular processes.

Dosage

Adults - Take one to three capsules daily with meals, or as professionally prescribed

Children - For children under 12 years we recommend Blackmores Cod Liver Oil 275 mg capsules.

Cautions

  • The recommended adult daily amount of vitamin A from all sources is 2500IU. When taken in excess of 8,000 IU vitamin A can cause birth defects. If you are pregnant, or considering becoming pregnant, do not take vitamin A supplements without consulting your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Always read the label. Use only as directed.
