What is the difference between fish oil and cod liver oil?

The main difference between cod liver oil and fish oil is that cod liver oil is high in vitamin D, sometimes called the "sunshine vitamin".* If you are outside in warm weather, sunshine produces high and generally sufficient levels of vitamin D without supplementation.

I do not recommend consuming cod liver oil in the warm weather months or warm climates, as this could cause an excess of vitamin D in your system. Conversely, when the sun's rays are very indirect, your body needs vitamin D supplementation. So I recommend cod liver oil versus fish oil in cool weather months or cool climates.

Vitamin D experts suggest that anyone living north of the 30th parallel is likely to be sun-deprived for much of the year. The 30th parallel runs roughly along the Gulf Coast, from the Florida panhandle west through Texas and across to southern California.

My general rule... Take cod liver oil from autumn to early spring, and fish oil from late spring through the end of summer. Adjust your fish oil intake depending on where you live in relation to the equator. Those close to the equator do not need cod liver oil due to good vitamin D intake from the sun.

If you aren't sure of what you should take, please consult your medical practitioner and have your vitamin D levels tested.
