What are cod liver oil and calcium?
It could be argued that the Vikings first discovered the benefits of cod liver oil - spending time extracting the oil from cod's livers on tree branches draped over steam. Perhaps they knew that cod liver oil contains the omega 3 fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA
(eicosapentaenoic acid), as well as the vitamins A and D. These nutrients make cod liver oil a top choice for supporting eye, brain, heart and immune health, and even bones and teeth. Calcium is the most abundant metallic element in the human body - with most of it in our bones and teeth where it helps keep them strong and healthy.
Why choose Healthspan's Cod Liver Oil and Calcium capsules?
We make our capsules using the purest cod liver oil and calcium for optimal eye, brain and heart health, as well as strong teeth and bones.* Even better, we make our cod liver oil only from fish that is sustainably sourced from the clean and crisp waters off Greenland. Our fish oil has been granted 'Friend of the Sea' status, proving it's been sourced responsibly. Before squeezing all this goodness into small and easy-swallow capsules, we add St Clement's citrus flavouring to take the edge off the fishy smell and taste. Finally, we include vitamin E to protect your cells from oxidative stress. The UK's Food Standards Agency recommends a minimum of two portions of fish per week. This is the equivalent to 450mg of omega 3 fatty acids per day - this is why we recommend up to five of our Cod Liver Oil and Calcium capsules daily.
Made in Europe.
