    See title.
    I must know cause everybody seems to take "fish oil" as a supp but I've been taking cod liver oil which IS fish oil but it only mentions about vitamins A and D and they are to do with digestion and healthy bones.

    Sorry in advance if dumb question. :x:

    The main difference between cod liver oil and fish oil is that cod liver oil is high in vitamin D. Many people, especially those who don't have adequate sun exposure, are deficient in vitamin D and would therefore receive all the health benefits from taking cod liver oil.
