  • Natural profile of vitamin A and vitamin D
  • Supports immune response function
  • Supports healthy eyes and skin
  • Supports epithelial tissue
  • Supports bone and tooth health
  • Supports musculoskeletal system
  • May support mood challenges and liver function
  • Supports the body’s natural inflammatory response function as it relates to periodic challenges like consumption of high fat-foods or strenuous activity
  • In convenient perles with a natural lemon flavor
  • Tested for purity by a third party
  • Provides EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids that, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease*
How do the omega-3 fatty acids found in this product support health?

Cod Liver Oil contains omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that are strongly associated with good health. According to the FDA, supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. EPA and DHA are most studied for their ability to modulate the body’s natural inflammatory response function as it relates to periodic challenges like strenuous exercise. Other areas of investigation are gut health, lung function, and effect on pathways that contribute to a healthy mood.*

How do vitamins A and D support health?

Because our cod liver oil is handled gently, naturally occurring vitamins A and D are preserved. Cod Liver Oil from Standard Process naturally contains multiple vitamin A esters, allowing our Cod Liver Oil to have a similar makeup to the multi-ester presence of vitamin A in foods. Vitamin A supports the health of the eyes, immune system, and epithelial tissue. Vitamin D supports healthy bones and teeth, the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and immune system health.*

Is naturally occurring coenzyme Q10 found in this product?

Each serving of Cod Liver Oil contributes a small amount of naturally occurring coenzyme Q10 to the diet. Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme that is essential for creation of energy within the mitochondria of cells and that helps protect cells from free radicals.*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
