The Good Oil: Cod Liver

On my quest for amazing skin, nails and hair, I decided to give Cod Liver Oil a road test.

I, naughtily, don’t eat enough fish. I just don’t buy and cook it enough. I know the amazing benefits of the darn thing but I’m not a fish head. So because of the lack of fish in my diet I decided to start scarfing down Cod Liver Oil tablets. I’m a discerning and critical person but those little fishy wonders have done absolute wonders to my skin, nails and hair. I suffer from dry skin, my nails break at the ends and because my hair is mega curly, it’s dry and it never seems to grow. Well let me tell you I’m sporting moist, juicy skin; My hair is Rapunzel-esque and I now have strong eagle-like talons.

I didn’t bother with an expensive Cod liver oil supplements either. Blackmore’s Cod Liver Oil did the trick. 3 tablets per day with meals and within 2-3 weeks I saw my amazing results.

There are a few other benefits to taking Cod Liver Oil. Check them out:

1. Builds a healthy digestive tract and cardiovascular system

2. The DHA contain in the oil helps the nervous system and maintains eye health

3. EPA (a fatty acid) that reduces inflammation throughout the body

4. It contains Vitamin D, that’s why is so good for your skin, which also helps regulate blood sugar

I never thought I’d say this but Cod Liver Oil I LOVE YOU!

  1. I’m still trying out different supplements to see which ones work for me. I’m currently taking 100iu D3, 1000mg flaxseed oil and a thyroid suport supplement (magnesium, potassium, vit b5, b2, b1, etc) daily – all on recommendations from my GP. I haven’t noticed any definite “Wow! These really work!” differences, but I think they’re doing their thing, a little bit at a time.
    Maybe I should add some cod liver oil into the mix? I know how great fish is for you, but unless it’s in sushi (which I’ll have about once a week) I’m probably not eating it.

  2. You definitely should give it a try Danielle. I’ve tried countless supplements before and this really helped with my skin, hair and nails. The DHA’s are als great for brain function. Cod liver oil may be a little old-school but I can do old school!

  3. Do know know what the difference is between all the different ‘oil’ supplements that are out there? I have also heard people rave about flaxseed oil, and normal fish oil. It’s so confusing!

    At the moment I am taking a combined magnesium/calcium/vitamin D supplement. The magnesium helps manage migraines and period pain, while the vitamin D helps the calcium to be absorbed (to ward off osteoporosis, which runs in my family).

  4. It can be a little confusing kittykitty. Fish oil is great for Mental health and preventing cardiovascular disease. it contains Omega 3 and DHA EPAs. It helps to reduce imflammation (that’s why it’s great for arthritis sufferers. Cod liver has great skin, hair, nails strengthening properties and flaxseed oil (which I tend to add to salads or just eat the whole seeds with yoghurt) is great for weight management and keeping your bowels regular. Flax Seed Oil contains omega-6 & 9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, fibre, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil.
    Hope this helps!
