Melrose Cod Liver Oil 500mL AUST-L 44476

Melrose Cold Liver Oil is a natural source of Vitamins A & D, used for the prevention and treatment of Vitamin A & D deficiencies and as a source of Omega 3 fatty acids. It is an excellent source of the Omega 3 long chain polyunsaturated marine fatty acids including Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) & Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). Vitamin A is necessary for the maintenance of overall good health. Vitamin D aids calcium absorption hence development of healthy bones and teeth. Whilst Vitamin D is naturally produced by the actions of sunlight on the skin, although housebound people (e.g. the elderly) may suffer from Vitamin D deficiency through lack of exposure to the sun. Deep ocean fish such as cod are rich economic sources of the omega 3 fatty acids. EPA is a the biochemical precursor of prostaglandins which are the intercellular messengers that regulate numerous physiological functions associated with health and well being. DHA is a major fatty acid in human brains and is vital for proper "eye-brain" function. Warning: Taking more than 2500 IU a day during pregnancy may cause birth defects.

Adults & Children over 12 years: 4ml by metric measure daily.

Children 6 months to 12 years: 2ml by metric measure daily.

An Overview on Melrose Cod Liver Oil.
Many years ago in the fishing villages of Norway and Greenland, older generations were fond of telling stories of the "daily dose" of Cod Liver oil. More research in the 1950s, on the benefits of Cod Liver oil revealed the presence of Vitamins A and D and Omega-3 fatty acids EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). This led to the modern view that these vitamins and fatty acids are an essential part of our diet.

The fishing grounds for the cod from which our Cod Liver oil is produced are the deep cold pristine Arctic waters off the coast of Norway. The fishermen remove and freeze the cod livers prior to delivery to the on-shore processors. The livers are then steam distilled to remove the oil. Further purification by a low temperature high vacuum process known as molecular distillation, produces exceptionally clean oil.

Why is Cod Liver oil good for me?
Cod Liver oil is a natural source of Vitamin A and Vitamin D. Cod Liver oil is especially recommended where people refuse vegetables such as broccoli and carrots and as a consequence deprive themselves of readily available natural sources of Vitamin A. In the body, Vitamin A is essential for the formation of visual purple (for night vision) and for bone and cellular growth.
Bones and Teeth

Vitamin D is associated with Calcium absorption and the healthy development of bones and teeth. Bones and teeth require Vitamin D to activate the absorption and utilisation of Calcium to maintain skeletal growth and strength. Cod Liver oil is especially recommended where people are not sufficiently exposed to sunlight enabling the natural production of Vitamin D in the skin. Because Cod Liver oil is such a good source of these fat-soluble vitamins, it is of assistance where the dietary intake is inadequate.

Omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids
In addition to Vitamins A and D, Cod Liver oil is a natural source of the very long chain fatty acids EPA and DHA. DHA is used by the body for brain development and visual acuity. It is especially important that pregnant women and breast feeding mothers receive adequate amounts of DHA. Sufficient DHA should be consumed to make use of this benefit.

Can I have Cod liver Oil if I am pregnant?
Taking more than 4mL of Cod Liver Oil (2,500IU of Vitamin A) per day during pregnancy may cause birth defects. Because of the importance of brain development in the unborn child, pregnant women should therefore consume a minimal dose of Cod Liver Oil (4mL), as directed, or consume Fish Oil obtained from the body of the fish which has minimal Vitamin A.

Is the oil checked for contaminants?
Because the sea is the eventual repository of toxins from the land and air, it is necessary to routinely test for these toxins. Recent tests have recorded less than 0.2 parts per million for heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium.

Each 4ml contains: Retinol (Vitamin A 2500IU) 750mcg, Colecalciferol (Vitamin D3 320 IU) 8mcg, Omega-3 Marine Triglycerides 800mg, (Docosahexaenoic acid 400mg, Eicosapentaenoic acid 388mg). Dosage: Adults Four (4) ml by metric measure daily. The recommended daily amount of Vitamin A from all sources is 2500 IU. Children dose (under 12 years) 2ml daily. Replace cap immediately after use. Store in the carton and refrigerate.

Keep out of reach of Children. When taken in excess, Vitamin A can cause birth defects.  If you are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, do not take without first consulting your health care professional.
