Chloe and I both take CLO for our skin, but it has so many other great benefits that I've come to realize that we all need to be taking it for our health. Cod Liver Oil is one of the most reliable and concentrated food sources of four nutrients that are essential to your health: DHA, EPA, vitamin A, and vitamin D. These four nutrients are needed for:
- Healthy skin
- Strong bones and teeth
- Healthy joints
- A healthy cardiovascular system
- A healthy nervous system and prevention of depression and other mood disorders
- A healthy lining for your digestive tract
DHA is a fatty acid that is essential to the health of your nervous system and eyes. EPA is a fatty acid that promotes a healthy cardiovascular system and decreases inflammation throughout your body. Vitamin A is necessary for proper vision, healthy skin, and strong mucosal linings, including the lining of your digestive tract. Vitamin D is essential to maintaining strong bones and teeth. It enhances the strength and efficiency of your immune system.
I have heard many personal testimonies from friends who say that CLO cured their dry skin and/or eczema. Dry skin is a particular problem for my little Africans. They need skin lotion at least daily to avoid becoming ashy. I have just started them on the CLO as well, after hearing from so many friends who were able to cure their dry skin from the inside out with CLO.
