Cod liver oil has been consumed for over 200 years. The oil took a leading role in the knowledge of rickets. Its preventive and therapeutic value (along with sunlight) against rickets in young infants was confirmed in 1922. Essential fatty acids, especially omega-3s have been linked to visual and cognitive development in infants and children and cerebrovascular/cognitive health in adults. Dietary lipids influence the cellular biophysical membrane and act on a variety of pathways including gene signaling and the activities of proteins.
Research demonstrates the role of cod liver oil in supporting skeletal, cardiovascular and neurological health; as well as the health of hair, skin and nails. Cod liver oil also has anti-inflammatory properties.  Meta-analysis of three studies lends support to the hypothesis that intake of cod liver oil during the first year of life reduces the risk of Type 1 diabetes. [4,5,6]
