Cod Liver Oil Standards for better cat health or pet health
Tastes like pure health is typically what people say after trying Nordic Naturals Artic Cod Liver Oils. Our unsuprassed manufacturing standards provide exceptional cod liver oils you can rely on for purity, freshness and pleasant taste.
Many other Cod Liver Oils are not made from cod liver at all. The cod liver oil standard of the 1890s is still in effect, and permits the use of fish oils taken as a by-product from the fish protein industry in lieu of the higher quality and more expensive Artic cod liver oil.
This standardized cod liver oil is often made from seit, haddock, rock cod and altantic cod. Since these species do not have the naturally occuring levels of vitamins A and D, vitamins must be added back in the form of synthetic vitamins A and D.
Want great results? Then make sure your cod liver oil is made from 100% Arctic cod liver, or Skrei as we say in Norway.

General Nutrient Support
Inflammation and Joint Care: Omega-3 fatty acids provide inflammatory support effects that promote proper joint health for your beloved companions.
Healthy Skin & Coat: Researchers at the University of Minnesota reported more than 70 years ago that young animals fed fat-free diets ceased to grow, developed dry skin and brittle hair, and exhibited other symptoms. All these conditions were reversed after adding Omega-3 fatty acids to the their diet, demonstrating the importance of Omega-3 essential fatty acids for pet health and overall well-being.
Heart & Eyes: Cod liver oil is naturally high in Omega-3 and vitamin A, which support heart health and visual acuity.
Weight Maintenance: Excess animal weight predisposes illnesses, disease, and reduces activity level. Cod liver oil may be used as an aid in weight loss by regulating sodium balance, water retention and fat metabolism.
