Abstract

Cod liver oil is obtained from the livers of fish belonging to the species Gadus morrhua and other species within the family Gadidae. It is a completely natural triglyceride oil consisting of about 99% fatty acids combined with glycerol, and 1% unsaponifiable matter. This latter fraction consists of vitamins, sterols and other alcohols.
