Why only one tablespoon of Cod liver oil a day?
One tablespoon provides you with as much as 75% of RDA for vitamin A and 300% of the current RDA for Vitamin D (400 IU) (supposedly being revised to 1000 IU in Canada, don’t know when).
Anymore and you would over dose on both.
Just take a normal carlson fish oil if you wish to add more omega 3s… or Flameout of course.
If my conversions are right the RDA and Tolderable Upper Intake for Vitamin D is 5/50 ug respectively, this coverts to 200/2000 IU approx. Toxicity results in elevated blood calcium, calcification of soft tissues, excessive thirst, headache, nausea, and weakness.
RDA and Tolerable Upper Intake for Vitamin A in men is 900/3000ug. Toxicity results in reduced bone density and pain, liver problems, birth defect.
Figured I would take to opportunity to look this up in my textbook. If I remember correctly Cod liver oil was given weekly to many people in cananda to prevent Vit A and D deficiencies.[/quote]
Or you could just go outside and get some sun if you really want your Vitamin “as nature intended” without having to worry about toxicity period. (Oh wait I forgot according to “Modern Medicine” the sun causes cancer so nix that idea)
