Get Your Omega-3's With Vitabase Cod Liver Oil
Beginning in the fishing villages of northern Europe the use of cod liver oil has been used for centuries. Originally used to help relieve the pains of rheumatoid arthritis and stiff joints, its value was not fully established until researchers examined it closely in the middle of the 20th century.
Cod liver oil is a valuable source of the omega-3 essential fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). It is also an excellent source of vitamin D.
Cod Liver Oil is Good for the Heart
The American Heart Association (AHA) has given omega-3 fatty acids their seal of approval as good for the heart. Though research is inconclusive, it shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Two clinical studies came to the conclusion that including foods rich in omega-3 or supplements in the diet could help prevent sudden death from abnormal heart rhythms. However, more studies are needed before a conclusive health benefit can be established.
Take a Look at the Benefits of Omega-3 From Cod Liver Oil
Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids like those found in cod liver oil have beneficial effects on several conditions. For example, patients taking fish oil supplements saw notable reductions in tender joints and morning stiffness as well as an increase in grip strength. Studies have shown that fish oil supplements reduced the need for pain medications in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Again, further research and studies are necessary before specific health benefits can be established.
Early laboratory studies appear to show that omega-3 fatty acids might prolong life in those with autoimmune disorders like diabetes. It also appears to decrease abdominal cramping, diarrhea, and pain associated with Crohn’s disease.
