Ultra Cod Liver Oil provides a combination of Cod Liver Oil plus Omega-3 Fish Oil. It also includes Vitamin A and Vitamin D. An additional Omega-3 supplement is not required.
Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should not take cod liver oil as it contains high levels of vitamin A which should be avoided. For Omega-3 supplements during pregnancy and breastfeeding try Pregnacare Plus, Pregnacare Max or Pregnacare Breast-feeding.
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, we recommend supplements specially formulated for this time from the Vitabiotics’ Pregnacare range. For during pregnancy choose from Pregnacare Plus or Max, both include a special Omega-3 capsule.
Pregnacare Plus provides the original formula Pregnacare tablets containing a careful combination of 19 vitamins and minerals, including 400 µg folic acid and 10 µg Vitamin D, advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy. It includes a special Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid, providing 300mg DHA. Maternal intake of DHA contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus*.
Pregnacare Max provides the most comprehensive nutritional support in the Pregnacare range and includes the special Omega-3 capsule. In additional to Pregnacare Plus it also provides with Calcium and L-Methylfolate, an advanced form of Folic Acid.
For when breastfeeding, Pregnacare Breast-feeding provides post-natal micronutrient tablets and high purity Omega-3 capsules.

Maternal intake of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants***. Infants have limited capability to synthesize fatty acids, which therefore must be obtained direct from external sources such as the mother's milk. During breast-feeding, the infant's brain continues to take up DHA and 15% of brain growth occurs after birth.
What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil, has been used in Pregnacare Omega-3 capsules found in Pregnacare Plus, Max and Breastfeeding. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.
* A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for adults.

Our Ultra Fish Oil products only come from sustainable fisheries in highly regulated clean sea environments, using wild fish varieties which are not endangered. Fishing never occurs in peak spawning seasons. They use approved fishing methods to ensure a minimum fish size so that smaller, younger fish may escape.
Ultra Fish Oil supplements are not suitable for vegetarians as they contain fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule. If you are looking for a vegetarian/vegan source of Omega-3 for children Wellkid Peppa Pig Omega-3 soft jellies and Wellkid Marvel Omega-3 gummies provide a rich source of Omega-3 DHA from microalgae (plant source).
Fish oil is oil derived from the tissues of oily fish.
If you are having difficulty swallowing capsules we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the capsule into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the capsule should go down with greater ease. Alternatively, the capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies.
Omega-3s are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid found in foods such as fatty fish, fish oils, walnuts, flax seeds & algae. The three main Omega-3 fats are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made efficiently by the body and must therefore be obtained through the diet. They play numerous roles in the body including the maintenance of normal brain function, normal heart function and the maintenance of normal vision.
Omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), can help support the body in a number of ways:
- DHA helps to maintain normal vision
- DHA contributes to normal brain function
- DHA and EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart
- Maternal intake of DHA contributes to normal foetal brain & eye development
Omega-3 fats are abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, anchovies and herring. They can also be found in a number of plant-based foods including nuts (especially walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans), seeds (especially flax, chia, hemp and pumpkin), seaweed and algae, leafy greens and tofu.
Although fatty fish, such as salmon, are perhaps the best-known source of Omega-3, there are also many plant-based sources. These include nuts, such as walnuts and hazelnuts, seeds, like chia and hemp, as well as seaweeds and algae.
Our Wellkid Peppa Pig Omega-3 soft jellies provide a vegan source of Omega-3 fats, for kids aged 3-7 years old, in a delicious orange-flavoured soft-jelly that kids will love.
