Who Should Use Cod Liver Oil?
People who do not eat foods rich in vitamin A or vitamin D, such as milk, eggs, liver, or fish, may not be meeting their needs. Vitamins A and D are critical for normal growth and development, so children who do not get enough of these vitamins in their diet may benefit from cod liver oil.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Vitamin A is safe when taken at recommended levels. Experts recommend that vitamin A supplements be limited to 10,000 IU per day. Vitamin A may cause liver damage and birth defects if taken in large amounts (25,000 IU or more per day) for many months or years. No side effects are reported for vitamin D intakes under 2,000 IU per day in healthy adults. Greater amounts of vitamin D can increase the loss of calcium from the bones and from the body. Excess amounts of vitamin D, when taken for many weeks or months, may lead to toxicity.
