What is cod liver oil?
The Vikings were huge fans of the benefits of cod liver oil: they went to a lot of trouble to extract the oil by laying fresh cod livers over birch tree branches above a kettle of boiling water. As the steam rose, the oil dripped into the water and was skimmed off. Maybe they just liked the taste (!) or maybe they knew that cod liver oil is a rich source of vitamins A and D (good for eyes, bones, teeth and the immune system) and the omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These omega 3s give cod liver oil its beneficial properties for brain, eyes and cardio care.*
Why choose Healthspan's Super Strength Cod Liver Oil 1,200mg capsules?
Our Super Strength Cod Liver Oil 1,200mg marks a break-through, providing unprecedented levels of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, making it one of the highest strength cod liver oil supplements available in the UK. Each concentrated fish oil capsule provides 40% total omega 3 fatty acids, including 180mg DHA and 220mg EPA, along with the vitamins A and D which provide support for the bones, teeth and the immune system. The environmental sustainability and protection of the world's sea life are highly important to us, so we're proud to say that our premium Super Strength Cod Liver Oil 1,200mg contains oil that has been granted 'Friend of the Sea' certification.

Our cod liver oil is sustainably sourced from the clean, crisp, unpolluted waters off Greenland. It is refined to keep it extremely pure and we've also added St Clements orange and lemon flavouring to make it easier on the taste buds. We've come a long way from drinking cod liver oil by the spoonful at school! The UK's Food Standards Agency recommends a minimum of two portions of fish per week - this equals 450mg per day of long chain omega 3 fatty acids, which is why we recommend one to two capsules daily. If you don't include enough oily fish in your diet, this oil is ideal for you.
Made in Europe.
