What is cod liver oil?
The name cod liver oil tells you exactly what it is - oil derived from the livers of cods! Whilst this may not sound very appetising, the perceived health benefits of cod liver oil are somewhat more palatable:
Cod liver oil is naturally rich in vitamins A and D, making it a sensible choice for maintaining good eye-sight, a healthy immune system and strong bones and teeth. Moreover, cod liver oil is prized as a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) – which not only solidify cod liver oil use for supporting eye health, but also add brain and heart health to cod liver oil’s list of benefits.*
Why choose Healthspan’s St Clement’s Cod Liver Oil Liquid?
We source our cod liver oil from the unpolluted fisheries of Iceland, and refine it to create a formulation free from impurities and toxins. We then add our own St Clement’s natural orange and lemon flavouring to neutralise its odour and taste, so it doesn’t bring you back old memories when straight cod liver oil was widely distributed in the UK!
Our pure cod liver oil contains very high levels of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA; just one 5ml spoonful gives you 460mg of DHA and 345mg of EPA! It also gives you beneficial levels of vitamin E which protects your cells from oxidative stress.
If you’re looking to support your bones, teeth, brain, eyes, heart and immune system, this cod liver oil could just be for you. It’s also ideal for the majority of us that don’t eat enough oily fish on a regular basis, and for anyone who finds swallowing capsules difficult.
Please note, product is sent as 2 x 300ml bottles.
*Taking 250mg of DHA a day contributes to brain and eye health, whilst a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA supports cardio health.
