Codcap: Each capsule contains Cod Liver Oil 0.3 ml which contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D3 as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.

Cod Liver Oil is a rich, natural source of Vitamins-A, D3 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy respiratory and digestive tract linings which are the first line of defence against infection. It also supports a healthy immune system. Vitamin-D is essential for the optimal uptake of Calcium from the intestine into the blood and helps maintain normal blood and bone levels of Calcium.
