Cod Liver Oil

First, read: Cod Liver Oil Warning

There is evidence to suggest that cod liver oil can soothe inflammation in the intestines. Enteric coated preparations may be especially useful for patients with IBD, as the coating allows the capsule to pass through the stomach and dissolve in the intestines, thus applying the oil directly to the inflamed area.

With cod liver oil, it is important to stick to the recommended dosage. It is a rich source of Vitamin A, which is toxic in high doses. For this reason, pregnant women are advised not to take cod liver oil.
