Amcod is a combination of cod liver oil and vitamin E. Cod liver oil is a nutrient-dense source of essential vitamins including vitamin D and vitamin A as well as anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Cod liver oil contains certain fatty acids that prevent the blood from clotting easily. These fatty acids also reduce pain and swelling. Fatty acids have many double bonds that are prone to oxidation. Vitamin E has been shown to reduce arterial plaques and enhance blood flow, inhibit thromboxane and platelet aggregation, protect serum lipids from oxidation (including LDL and HDL), reduce carotid stenosis (narrowing) and prevent stroke, trap harmful nitrogenous radicals, act as anti-proliferative agents, and provide powerful oxidative defence for the skin.
