Nordic Naturals has re-invented Cod Liver Oil with this new molecularly distilled, great tasting Arctic-D Cod Liver Oil from Norway containing the highest concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids per mg of any cod liver oil, with natural levels of Vitamins A, and now with 1000 IU of added Vitamin D. There is emerging research indicating that a large portion of the American population is deficient in Vitamin D. African Americans and other dark-skinned people are highly likely to be deficient in vitamin D. Studies from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have shown that as many as 42% of all African Americans, ages 15 to 45, have low levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D is most commonly known for its action in maintaining healthy bones, but current research has discovered a laundry list of benefits of vitamin D, for nearly 10 different health conditions including: diabetes, insulin resistance, and high blood pressure. An adequate level of Vitamin D significantly lowers your risk for heart disease. Some studies even link Alzheimer’s disease, depression and multiple sclerosis to low levels of vitamin D. Additional studies have shown that when blood levels of vitamin D are adequate, it reduces the rate of colon cancer by about 50%. Arctic-D Cod Liver Oil is enhanced with antioxidants to preserve freshness and 100% natural lemon essence for a great taste loved by adults and even children. Nordic Naturals’ Arctic-D Cod Liver Oil is virgin cod liver oil from Arctic Norway, one of the cleanest and most nutritional bodies of water in the world. Cod Liver Oil is an excellent source of DHA & EPA; two Omega 3 essential fatty acids promote normal brain development and visual function. Recent research has shown that supplementing children’s diets with Omega 3 fats enhances learning, achievement and attention span. Omega 3 fats also support positive mood, menstrual pain, healthy skin, cardiovascular health and memory function. 8oz Bottle.
