What is cod liver oil?
In Tübingen, Germany, drinking a glass of cod liver oil is the punishment for the loser at the traditional 'Stocherkahnrennen' (a punting boat race between universities). As uninviting as this sounds, it's not too far removed from the old days of taking a daily dose of cod liver oil by the spoonful at school! Cod liver oil is rich in vitamins A and D (great for a healthy sight and for supporting bones, teeth and the immune system) but it's probably most famous for its high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which give cod liver oil additional health benefits for brain and heart.*
Why choose Healthspan's High Strength Cod Liver Oil 570mg capsules?
Our cod liver oil is sustainably sourced from the clean, unpolluted waters off Greenland; we can proudly say that our High Strength Cod Liver Oil 570mg contains oil that has been granted 'Friend of the Sea' certification. Friend of the Sea are known for their thorough certification procedure, using stringent guidelines before awarding their seal of approval. Our oil is refined to ensure it's extremely pure and virtually taste and odour-free. We also include our unique St Clements citrus flavouring to make our cod liver oil capsules even tastier. Finally, we created small capsules so are easy for you to swallow. The UK's Food Standards Agency advises that we eat a minimum of two portions of oily fish per week - equal to 450mg per day of the long-chain omega 3 fatty acids. Not a lot of people manage to get this into their regular diet, which is why we recommend two to four of our High Strength Cod Liver Oil 570mg capsules daily. Two capsules provide 26% total omega 3 fatty acids, including 120mg DHA and 140mg EPA. If you are looking for higher levels of DHA and EPA per capsule, try our Super Strength Cod Liver Oil 1,200mg.
Made in Europe.
