Frequent questions

Human body has a fantastic immune system that protect us against diseases. In an unbelievable way, he can fight against unwanted intruders and further recognize them during repeated attacks. Möller’s cod liver oil contains vitamins D, A and E which contributes to maintain the immune system in good condition. Taking cod liver oil is actually one of the simplest ways in which we can take care of our health. Both children and parents will have great health benefits if they regularly use Möller’s cod liver, rich in Omega-3 and vitamins D, A and E all year round, ensuring the proper functioning of the immune system.

Cod liver oil is recommended because of the content of natural essential fatty acids Omega-3, especially DHA and EPA – in effective concentration, necessary for optimal growth and development of the brain and eyes in children. Cod liver oil also contains vitamins D, A and E, which play an important role in the growth and development of the bone system (bones and teeth), enhancing the capacity of anti-infectious defense (increased immunity), improving visual acuity (sight) etc.

Yes. DHA and EPA fatty acids, which are the main ingredients in Möller’s product, are among the best proven nutrients in the world today.

Cod liver oil is an addition to the basic treatment that is recommended for use for long periods (without a break), at least for several years. Möller’s has an immunomodulatory effect (it stimulates the “dormant” immune system), and is particularly recommended for use during the first years of life.

Cod liver oil is extremely beneficial all year round, because the ingredients it contains are absolutely essential all the time, not just in winter! Sometimes with the exception of vitamin D, our body requires a constant consumption of Omega-3 and Vitamin A in order to function.

On the contrary, we need it! It is known that under the influence of sunlight the body can produce sufficient amounts of vitamin D, a process that begins in the skin, continues into the liver and ends in the kidneys. Theoretically, there should be no vitamin D deficiency in summer when the sun is strong. In fact, many people suffer from vitamin D deficiency even in the summer. There are many causes: problematic liver and kidney function, use of certain medications, but particularly lack of sunlight exposure and use of sun protection – using sunscreen factor 30 prevents vitamin D synthesis to 95 %!

Wild arctic cod is one of the richest sources of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (especially DHA and EPA) versus meat or other fish organs that do not contain similar amounts of DHA and EPA. For this reason, choosing a dietary supplement requires careful examination of the content of DHA and EPA. For example, many dietary supplements, such as liquid fish oil or capsules of 1 gram (and sometimes over 1 gram), contain 0.5 grams of DHA and EPA, insufficient to provide the desired positive effects. Concerning the possible toxicity of cod liver, this is absolutely excluded, given that the manufacturer of Möller’s has been known for over 165 years precisely for the purity and the very high quality of its cod liver products by chemical untreated fish. Until the bottle is filled, the oil passes through no less than 8 control points, eliminating any residual or unwanted impurities/toxins. In addition, norwegian production standards are in many ways stricter than the european. In conclusion, the liver is used because it is one of the best natural sources of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids DHA and EPA. Possible toxicity is a statement with no real basis – since 1854 (since Norwegian pharmacist Peter Moller patented his method of steam extraction) the cod liver oil is extremely pure. For his discovery, the pharmacist has received numerous awards and recognitions.

1 teaspoon (5ml) Möller’s contains 250 micrograms (833 IU) of vitamin A, which is 31% of your daily needs. If the daily diet is varied, surely the rest of the daily needs are provided by the diet. For adults the recommended daily dose is 5000 IU. Pregnant women should not exceed 6000 IU daily and nursing mothers 8000 IU daily.
Overdose occurs in conditions of daily exceeding these recommended daily doses that are quantitatively significant, a condition that under normal diet conditions cannot be achieved. It is also important to check the amount of vitamin A in the dietary supplements and medications taken at the same time with Möller’s.

It is always good to follow the product dosage recommendations or the recommendations given by the doctor. You should be particularly careful not to exceed the recommended daily intake of vitamins A, D, and E. If you still exceed the recommended daily dose, there are no risks, but you should avoid overdosing in the long run. Omega-3 has no side effects in case of overdose.

In principle, kids love the taste of Möller’s cod liver oil because it has no fishy smell and taste. If you still can’t get used to it, you can mix your Möller’s daily dose in porridge or soup, but then you must be sure to eat the whole meal. You can also mix Möller’s with water, juice and warm (not boiling) milk or tea.

Möller’s cod liver oil can be safely used by pregnant women and breast-feeding. Essential fatty acids Omega-3 are especially important for optimal development of the brain and nervous system. Vitamin D is vital for the development of bones, teeth and regulating the use of calcium in cells.

There is a big quality difference between existing Omega-3 products in the market. Let’s make a difference, we recommend:

  • 1g natural Omega-3 per day. Check packing information -> Omega-3 quantity in the product and daily dose.
  • Omega-3 rich in DHA and EPA. DHA and EPA are the most important Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Check the packing information -> the amount of DHA and EPA in the product and the daily dose. If you do not find this information on the packaging, it probably does not contain DHA and EPA.
  • Natural triglycerides. Omega-3 can have three forms: triglycerides, phospholipids and ethyl ester. Triglycerides (fish) and phospholipids (plankton) are natural, while ethyl ester is a synthetic form – it does not exist in the nature. Many products contain ethyl ester, because it is the cheapest way to process Omega-3.

All Möller’s products contain natural Omega-3 – triglycerides.

There is no general rule, it depends on your eating habits. Many people prefer to drink Möller’s cod liver oil  after the meal, not on an empty stomach. Our advice is to create a habit of taking your daily dose of Möller’s cod liver oil after breakfast, to make sure that you will not forget your daily Möller’s dose.

As an unwritten rule, 5ml is one full baby spoon, but in many cases 5 ml of Möller’s cod liver oil can fit in a small teaspoon with minor variations depending on the shape. Half a teaspoon collects 2.5ml with minor variations depending on the shape.

Möller’s Omega-3 cod liver is pure, natural product, without preservatives. Once opened, the bottle should be stored in the refrigerator, used within three months, and then replaced with a new one. After opening, it is important to carefully close the cap on the bottle to prevent long exposure to oxidation. After 3 months, the product may change its properties (due to oxidation).

We all have unpleasant memories of the taste of fish oil that our grandmother gave us. Möller’s cod liver oil has an award winning taste for years – 2 Michelin stars received from iTQi Belgium (International Institute for Taste and Quality), the world’s leading organization dedicated to the certification of flavors of food and drinks, whose judges are selected from the 15 most prestigious european culinary and sommelier associations. Möller’s cod liver oil was evaluated as “food and health” taking into account taste, smell and sensation after igestion. 
The excellence of the product and the award is the result of:

  • The exceptional purity of the raw material.
  • Very high standards in the production process.
  • Strict quality control.

The taste is better if you keep the bottle in the refrigerator.

Fish allergy is due to the reaction of a protein (allergen) found in the fish muscle. Today’s analytical methods have failed to detect residual protein in cod liver oil and we find it unlikely that the product will cause an allergic reaction. If you are hyper allergic to fish, talk or try the product infront of your doctor.

None of our products contains gluten and soy.

Fatty acids are vital for the human body because they form the membrane of each cell in the body. Some fatty acid categories are produced naturally in our body, while other fatty acid groups can only be obtained through the diet. This last group is called EFA (Essential Fatty Acids), and it is very important to get in the daily diet to have a healthy body.
There are 2 EFA categories:

  • Omega-6 -> In modern diet, there are many sources of Omega-6 (seeds, nuts, vegetable oils, etc.), so they are rarely taken as a dietary supplement
  • Omega-3 -> Contrary to Omega-6, today’s diet has a large deficit of Omega-3 obtained from fish (consumption of fish is significantly reduced). Therefore, it is essential to make sure that we have enough Omega-3 in our body.

Yes, we can guarantee that all our products are clean and of the best quality. Our products are completely safe for children and adults. We take all precautions to prevent unwanted ingredients that may be found in fish. The cod liver oil we use is thoroughly cleaned in few steps and controlled in no less than 8 times throughout the process. In fact, Möller’s own rules on product purity are much stricter than the authorities’ requirements. By using raw marine materials, such as Lofoten’s cod, we avoid the presence of unwanted harmful ingredients.
Norwegian traditions have always been linked to the ocean, with residents having a deep respect for all living things in the water. As this country’s heritage is at sea, the norwegian fisheries management system is backed by a long-term plan based on strict regulation. In the last 25 years, there have been almost no cases of illegal, unreported or unregulated fishing in Norway.
