Can I take 7 seas pure cod liver oil which states the relief of pains/stiffness (dont have) but also good for hair/skin which I'm taking it for?

Also, it contains very high levels of vitamin D and vitamin K, and could result in overdosage of those vitamins. I would not recommend taking it daily. ...Read more
