Cod Liver Oil Dosage
Cod Liver Oil | Essential Fatty Acids | EFA | Fish | DietPotencies of Cod Liver Oil vary between capsules, bottled oil and high dise capsules, but if you can face it the best thing is to take the traditional oil. Mixed with either milk or orange juice it does not taste too bad! Oil taken straight has a higher Omega-3 content than capsules, or alternatively you can try one of the orange or lemon flavoured varieties of bottled oil that are now widely available.

The suggested intake of Omega-3 long chain polyunsaturates is one gram a day. You can make this up in either capsules or liquid. if you are taking capsules look for ones which say "pure fish oil" on the packaging as this means the oil has not been chemically processed and the basic construction of the Omega-3 has been preserved.
