I am suffering from severe hair fall n taking cod liver oil tablets will it work?
Silica may not be a word you commonly hear associated with diet (or foods that prevent hair loss, for that matter). If you’re looking to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss, however, silica will need to be on your menu. The body uses silica to help it absorb vitamins and minerals; if you’re not consuming silica, eating your vitamins might not be helping much. Silica can be found in bean sprouts and the skin of cucumbers, red and green peppers, and potatoes. Remember, when you eat these foods raw, as opposed to cooked, you’re getting more nutritional value out of them. If you want to keep it, you’d be wise to eat foods that prevent hair loss

Can I take Cod liver Oil Capsules as I have read advantages of it in multiple Sources. Is it addictive substance?

Dear user. I can understand. Cod liver oil, as the name suggests, is the essential oil extracted from the livers of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua). The oil is commonly taken as a dietary supplement. It is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and contains relatively high amounts of vitamin A and vitamin D. It is not addictive and is good for health. Take care.
