From the clean arctic waters far off the coast of Norway, Carlson brings you the finest cod liver oil.
Only cod fish caught during the winter and early spring are used, as the liver oil content is highest at this time of year. The oil is separated from the liver tissues without the use of chemicals.
To ensure maximum freshness, the air inside the glass bottle has been replaced with nitrogen, and natural-source vitamin E has been added. Natural vitamin E protects the freshness of the EPA and DHA both within the bottle and within our bodies by preventing oxidation of the polyunsaturated oil.

Which Fish Oils Contain Vitamins A and D?
Vitamins A and D are widely recognized as essential nutrients in adults and children.
Cod liver oil naturally contains vitamins A and D as the oil is from the liver of the fish, rather than the body oil.
What is the Natural Form of Vitamin A in Cod Liver Oil?
Vitamin A palmitate (retinyl palmitate) naturally occurs in cod liver oil. Humans and animals store vitamin A in their bodies in the form of vitamin A palmitate.
Carlson Cod Liver Oil supplies these naturally occurring forms of vitamins A & D.
