A properly functioning immune system must be well equipped in order to fight off the attacks of bacteria and infections. If your immune system is working well, then it protects you from diseases.
Cod liver oil is a rich and natural source of vitamin D. Vitamin D works together with other nutritional components in order to maintain proper functioning of the immune system. Our body can produce vitamin D through processes taking place in the skin, when we are out in the sun. We can also ensure that we have this vitamin by consuming fat fish, milk with added vitamin D, margarine or butter. Unfortunately, here in the cold North we don’t always have enough sunlight and don’t always consume enough foods which contain vitamin D – in such situations it is a good idea to have a bottle of cod liver oil, in the refrigerator, which will provide us with sufficient amount of vitamin D.
On the immunological firmament, vitamin D is accompanied by vitamin A, which also supports the defensive system of the organism. Cod liver oil is also its natural source. Equally important nutritional components which are present in cod liver oil are EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, which are important building substances in each of the body’s cells. Our organism is not able to produce omega-3 fatty acids by itself, that is why we most regularly provide them along with food, or through supplementation.
