The cod liver oil in our food supplement is high quality and high strength, plus it contains Vitamins D & A. This can prevent free radical damage to the body’s cells and support a healthy immune system.
Here are some of the reported benefits of taking Cod Liver:
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune system, thanks to vitamin D
- Helps to relieve joint pain for those suffering from arthritis or similar conditions
- Speeds up the natural healing process for injuries or if you’re recovering from an infection
- Helps to maintain strong and healthy bones due to the presence of vitamin D
- Improves eye health by reducing inflammation thanks to high amounts of vitamin A
- Boosts brain function and memory skills
- Reduces the chances of developing heart disease by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.
Most of these advantages are down to the fact cod liver oil contains Omega 3, a type of fatty acid that’s proven to be a fantastic anti-inflammatory.
Research has shown that glucosamine occurs naturally in the joints and muscles. It plays an important role in the smooth functioning of cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. When we walk and move, we need cartilage to prevent bones from rubbing together and to absorb shock.
As we age, the amount of glucosamine found in cartilage decreases, possibly resulting in less cartilage between joints.
Scientific studies have found that in the body, glucosamine helps to rebuild and maintain cartilage.
Calcium helps with the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Experts agree that a diet rich in calcium can help people of all ages to prevent the onset of osteoporosis.
This chewable calcium tablet is peppermint flavored and also contains Vitamin D. Vitamin D increases calcium absorption in the gut and promotes calcium absorption into the bones.
To produce vitamin D, your body must be exposed to sunlight. It is one of the most important vitamins the body produces, contributing to:
The immune system: vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system
Bone and muscle health: vitamin D is very important for the body’s structural system and is required in the growth and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It has been shown to support a healthy muscle function. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
There are several influences that will impact your body’s ability to produce vitamin D, including:
- Not getting sufficient sunlight such as during the winter months in the UK.
- Covering more of your skin in the summer months
- Having darker skin.
- Being over 65.
Adults and children over the age of 1, only need to supplement with 10mcg (400IU) a day of vitamin D – unless recommended differently by a doctor.
The following guidance has been taken from the NHS website:
It’s important to take vitamin D as you may have been indoors more than usual this year.
You should take 10 micrograms (400 IU) of vitamin D a day between October and early March to keep your bones and muscles healthy.
There have been some reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19). But there is currently not enough evidence to support taking vitamin D to prevent or treat coronavirus.
White kidney beans are a source of fibre which break down in the stomach and turns into a gel-like substance. This can restrict appetite and potentially help you feel fuller for longer. Our food supplement (previously known as ‘Carb Blocker’) has been paired with caffeine and vitamin C to support normal energy metabolism alongside chromium which supports normal macronutrient metabolism and glucose levels.
