Medicinal Cod Liver Oil is the fatty oil obtained from fresh cod livers (Gadus morhua L.) and other species of the Gadidae family by cooking and subsequent cold filtration. The free fatty acids and odour carrying substances as well as unnatural/typical foreign substances are reduced by molecular destillation.
Thus a very light, blank quality is obtained, almost neutral in odour and taste which meets high-grade standards.
Residue controlled according to the European regulations effective at present.
Most of the health benefits of fish oil can be attributed to the presence of omega 3 essential fatty acids like Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Other useful essential fatty acids in fish oil include Alpha-linolenic acid or ALA and Gamma-linolenic acid or GLA.
