Beauty Benefits of Omega-3 Fish Oil
- Oily fish (like arctic cod) are a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids – EPA and DHA. These are essential fatty acids that help reduce inflammation in the body and the skin
- If we’re not getting enough of these omega-3 fatty acids, the skin’s barrier function can become weakened… leading to more moisture escaping from the skin and drier skin as a result
- Omega 3’s can help increase skin’s moisture retention and firmness, improving the appearance of dry skin, acne, eczema and psoriasis
- Increasing our intake of omega 3’s from oily fish may help with the balance of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria in the gut – a happy gut equals happy skin
- And omega-3’s can help boost your mood! If you’re smiling, you’re less likely to develop frown lines!

Why Cod Liver oil vs Fish oil?
Cod liver oil is extracted from cod livers, whereas fish oil is extracted from the body flesh of fish. These two types of oil are both excellent sources of the omega-3s, EPA and DHA, but in different ratios: Arctic cod liver oil has about 9% EPA and 14% DHA, whereas fish body oil provides about 18% EPA and 12% DHA.
Another difference is that cod liver oil contains small amounts of naturally occurring vitamins A and D. For example, the natural vitamin A found in Nordic Naturals Arctic Cod Liver Oil averages 650–1500 I.U.s (217 – 500 mcg)* per serving. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin A for adults (as established by the U.S. Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science) is 3000 I.U.s (1000 mcg) for men and 2300 I.U.s (767 mcg) for women. Cod liver oil also provides a small amount of natural vitamin D3.
According to Dr. Brad West, Nordic Naturals Research Advisor, “This question of cod liver oil versus fish body oil seems to be one of preference. I have found people in climates with less sun often prefer cod liver oil due to the presence of vitamins D and A. Cod liver oil is a great everyday remedy for folks of all ages, but especially for kids—whether in chewable soft gels or liquid added to their food. When it comes to condition-specific issues, it’s best to rely on your practitioner’s recommendations.”
Essential Fatty Acids are nutritional cornerstones of human health. Two major families of fats are comprised under this designation, omegas 3 and 6. They are deemed ‘essential’ because we need them for proper health—much like certain vitamins and minerals but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation.
Most people associate omega-3s with cardiovascular health, but their benefits go far beyond the heart.
The two main omega-3s are:
- EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and
- DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
These promote the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response, a normal function that is behind the relief of many chronic conditions but that is too often inhibited by poor nutrition.
Extensive research has documented the health benefits of EPA and DHA which include not only a healthy heart, but brain and cognitive function, joint mobility, eye health, pregnancy and lactation, healthy skin and hair, and a normally functioning immune response.
