I take cod liver oil but can I take cold-pressed rapeseed oil to get the same benefits?
Cod liver oil and rapeseed oil come from two different food types: fish and plants – so they’ll have differences. Both contain saturated and unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. However cod liver oil also provides vitamins A and D, which is not found in rapeseed oil – refined nor cold-pressed. Cod liver oil has historically been taken as a source of vitamins A and D. Cod liver oil is also a rich source of a special type of fat called long chain omega-3 fatty acids, which may help to prevent heart disease.
