What is cod liver oil?

How to take your cod liver oil

  • While you can still take cod liver oil as a liquid, it is also available in capsule form.
  • One concern about taking cod liver oil is the presence of contaminants – for example heavy metals (such as mercury, cadmium and lead), PCBs and more.  However, all cod liver oils in the US must be tested according to protocols of the Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC) and approved free of detectable levels of 32 contaminants before they can be imported.  In addition, mercury is water soluble so while it may be present in the flesh of fish, it is not in the oil.
  • To ensure that your cod liver oil is fresh, avoid buying the large economy size or any end-of-season sale item. Buy cod liver oil in small dark bottles and keep them in a cool dark place or in the refrigerator.
