Cod liver oil is a valuable source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A and D, and numerous studies have been written about its beneficial effects on health. Well aware of this fact, Rijeka’s pharmacists Giovanni Prodam and Ernesto Benco offered it to their customers at the end of the 19th century!

You can see these and many similar bottles, postcards, and promotional materials of Rijeka’s pharmacists from the turn of the 20th century as permanent exhibits in the JGL Pharmacy Museum. When can we expect you?
