An interesting excerpt from The Great Physician’s Rx for Health and Wellness, by Jordan S. Rubin, New York Times best-selling author of The Maker’s Diet:
Can’t get past the taste of cod liver oil? After hearing how beneficial this amazing golden oil is for your brain and nervous system, you may change your mind. Plus these days it comes in lemon (and other) flavors that mask the fishy flavor it was once known for.
Research studies dating back from 1918 to the present day have verified that cod liver oil is one of the most important supplements that virtually everyone should be taking. Packed with large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids — essential nutrients that most people are dangerously deficient in with today’s dietary habits — cod liver oil has many benefits to the body.
Omega-3s play a crucial part in the development and maintenance of your brain and nervous system. It is truly a key food for helping to restore emotional balance, including reducing the impact to your body from stress.
Beyond the benefits to your emotional health, omega-3s are essential to build and optimize your immune system, helping to protect you from virtually every chronic disease out there, including cancer and heart disease.
Lemon-flavored cod-liver oil??? Ewwwww. I’m all about good health, so I’ll probably have to give this a try.
