Has anyone consumed Cod liver oil capsules in Pregnancy? I am confused, pls help.?

Posted on: February 19, 2010


My doctor prescribed them to me yesterday but out of curosity I checked the Internet and found no evidence where the expectatnt mothers are deriving any suggested benefits from it. I know they are good source of Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin E and DHA. But even FDA does not recommend any recommended daily diet of them. Some researchers also say they should not be taken during pregnancy! I am very confsued by all these researches and will ask my Gynaec soon but by that time i want to find out if anyone of you has any experience in this field.

took them during my pregnancy and had no problems. They are not approved by the FDA because the FDA does not approve what they consider health food supplements. Some research disapproves because ingesting fish with mercury can lead to high levels of mercury in your system, which can lead to poisoning. I don;t think that the cod liver oil contains mercury, and if it does, it’s a small amount. You may just want to watch how much other fish (like tuna) you are ingesting. All in all, taking it has pointed to being beneficial.
