Daily 2 cod liver oil capsule to 10 months 10 days Hb E Beta Thai Baby is ok? Which contains:Vit A 600 IU, D3 85 IU, E 0.3 IU & cod liver oil 0.3 ml.
Not recommended: If you feed your 3 month old breast milk, he or she may need vitamin D supplementation. If formula, probably not, since they are vitamin-fortified.

It is fat-soluble, meaning it isn't excreted from the body by kidneys and can build up to toxic levels. ...Read more

Perhaps a bit but...:
Krill oil and cod liver oil are both excellent sources of essential Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The main thing krill oil has that cod liver oil does not is Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant with many proven benefits (see http://products. Mercola. Com/astaxanthin/).
But krill oil costs much more so you could take cod liver oil and supplement with astaxanthin.
See my comment: ...Read more

Sure: I hope you get some benefitGet a more detailed answer ›
Both krill and cod liver oil are excellent sources of essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. Cod Liver Oil also contains Vitamins A and D. Krill oil may be more readily absorbed and is an excellent source of astaxanthin.
It is safe to take these together. One would have to take very large amounts for either or both to be hazardous.

Fine: Cod liver oil contains vitamin a, vitamin d and omega-3 fatty acid, krill oil has high levels of omega-3 fatty acid.

So do it with moderation, as always consult your doctor. ...Read more
Only if...: Only if a person truly needs extra biotin or cod liver oil, should she take some. People should not ingest "supplements" or medications that they do not need.

Thus, the question is, what is the person deficient in? ...Read more

Cod Liver Oil: Cod liver oil contains more vitamin a and vitamin d than any other food. This is pre-formed vitamin a, though -- not the beta carotene you can get from plants. You probably want no more than 2500 iu of preformed vitamin a/day. It is fat soluble and the excess is stored in your liver. Cod liver oil also contains high amounts of dha and epa -- long chain omega-2 fats. ...Read more
Tablets vs capsules?: Capsules or liquid are certainly a lot more common but sure, the EPA/DHA, Vits A and D can be packaged into a tablet as well. Or do you mean does cod liver oil work, period? It is certainly considered one of the more helpful supplements - supplying things people are actually often short on (see above). anything that dates back 2000+ years is good in my book, too! ...Read more
