Fermented Cod Liver Oil Australia

Cod Liver Oil Science Study from Oslo University Hospital

Hello everyone,

Some light reading of a study of Cod Liver Oil for those of that persuasion is below.

This study from CDC in the US of A  came across our desk, and for those interested, here is the link and it is listed below for a direct link to read more about the study. (Either of these links will take you to the study,

Oslo University Hospital in Norway is investing the time and money to determine if Cod Liver Oil is a possible cure for Covid 19.

The likely path the government and the medical community wish to take to resolve this Covid19 situation in Australia in Mid July in 2021, is with the vaccination and is backed by the Science. 

It is refreshing to read in this study listed below of the possibility that maybe real food could maybe help clear up Covid.

Brief Summary:

A randomized, parallel-group treatment, quadruple masked, two-arm study to assess the effectiveness of cod liver oil compared to placebo in the prevention of Covid-19 and airway infections in healthy adults.

In this study, the investigators will investigate whether daily cod liver oil can prevent Covid-19 infections and reduce the severity of such infections. The investigators will also examine whether cod liver oil prevents other airway infections in healthy adults.


Condition or disease 



Covid-19Respiratory Tract Infections

Dietary Supplement: Cod liver oilDietary Supplement: Corn oil (placebo)

Phase 4


Detailed Description:

Preliminary evidence from the literature and an ongoing study in the investigators' lab suggests that cod liver oil may prevent Covid-19 and complications of Covid-19. In the present study, the investigators will examine whether this is actually the case by randomizing volunteers to take cod liver oil or placebo (corn oil) during the winter months of 2020-2021. The investigators also aim to explore whether cod liver oil can prevent other respiratory tract infections, as well as explore and confirm already known health effects and possible new health effects, in particular rare adverse events associated with cod liver oil use.

Cod liver oil is a traditional source of vitamin A, D, and E and omega-3 fatty acids and the dose administered in the study will contain 250 ug vitamin A, 10 ug vitamin D, 10 mg vitamin E, and 1,2 g omega-3 fatty acids.

Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Masking Description:

Participants, investigators, care providers, data collectors, outcome assessors, and data analysts will be masked to the group assignment of each participant.

Unmasking will be done after analysis of all primary endpoints and, preferably, also all secondary endpoints are completed.

After unmasking the unmasked list will only be made available to study personnel needing this for conducting their tasks.
