Does cod liver oil have a positive effect on immunity?

The autumn and winter season requires additional supplementation for immunity. In addition to vitamins and minerals, it is worth taking healthy fatty acids. Does cod liver oil have a positive effect on protection against the common cold?

What is cod liver oil?

Cod liver oil is natural oil from the liver of Atlantic cod. At this point, it is worth emphasising that products containing other fish oils (e.g. from shark or salmon) are equally valuable components in the diet. Cod liver oil refers exclusively to cod fat.

 

Fish oil is a source of unsaturated fatty acids (especially omega-3 and omega-6) and vitamins D and E. Before purchasing fish oil supplements, it is important to pay attention to the composition. Good quality products will be characterized by a high level of omega acids and vitamins. Remember that not every dietary supplement offers an optimal amount of valuable active ingredients.

 

Cod liver oil is available in the form of liquid oil or gel capsules. The first form ensures rapid absorption of the supplied ingredients. The second one is much more convenient, free from the intense smell and taste of fish. Before buying supplements with cod liver oil, it is also worth paying attention to whether the product is categorised for a specific age group. An optimally specified dose of polyunsaturated fatty acids will make it possible to take care of the needs of the appropriate group.

How does cod liver oil benefit immunity?

Cod liver oil is, above all, a great source of healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It has been known for a long time that they have a positive influence on the proper functioning of the heart, vision and brain. Moreover, by affecting lipid metabolism and the level of triglycerides, omega acids contribute to maintaining optimal cholesterol levels, which undoubtedly has a positive impact on immunity.

 

The use of fish oil and the ingredients it contains also contributes to:

  • proper vision
  • reduction of the occurrence of inflammatory lesions
  • support for the brain and nervous system
  • protecting cells from oxidative stress
