Cod Liver Oil With Evening Primrose Oil - 180 Capsules


Have you considered purchasing Cod Liver Oil and Evening Primrose Oil separately? We recommend combining Cod Liver Oil 570mg and Evening Primrose Oil 500mg. By ordering these products separately, you will receive increased levels of Evening Primrose Oil (50% more) and 360 capsules of pure Cod Liver Oil instead of 180 combination capsules. What is cod liver oil? Did you know…? Cod liver oil was used to treat rickets in the 1800s! Long before that, it’s said that Vikings discovered cod liver oil’s benefits – going to great lengths to get their hands on the precious oil. Not that the Vikings would have known at the time, but cod liver's benefits are said to be derived from its high concentration of vitamins A and D and the omega 3 fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). It is these beneficial fatty acids which have been proven to support the normal function of the brain, eyes and heart* whilst vitamins A and D are known to assist vision, immune health and even bones and teeth. What is evening primrose oil? Nicknamed ‘The King's Cure-All' in 18th century Europe, evening primrose oil comes from the seeds of the ‘evening primrose’ plant, a wild plant native to North America where indigenous tribes used the plant for food and medicinal purposes for hundreds of years before it was introduced to Europe in the early 17th century. This plant, which has no relation to the UK’s native wild primrose, produce an oil rich in the polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty acids gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA). Although some GLA is provided through the diet and produced within our bodies, several studies show that supplementation has a positive effect. LA is an essential fatty acid, which cannot be synthesised in our bodies and we must therefore obtain it through diet or supplements. Why choose Healthspan’s Cod Liver Oil & Evening Primrose Oil capsules? Our Cod Liver Oil & Evening Primrose Oil supplement provides a natural and economical way of obtaining both these important nutrients in one combined capsule. This formulation provides 42% total omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. We make our capsules using evening primrose oil extracted only by mechanical compression, without the use of heat or solvents, ensuring optimum purity and a high content of beneficial omega 6 fatty acids. Even better, we make our highly-purified omega 3 enriched cod liver oil only from fish that are responsibly sourced from the clean and crisp waters off Greenland, and our oil has achieved 'Friend of the Sea' certification. Finally, we add St Clements citrus flavouring to make sure it doesn’t taste or smell fishy. The UK’s Food Standards Agency recommends a minimum of two portions of fish per week – this is equivalent to 450mg of long chain omega 3 fatty acids per day. If – like so many other people – you struggle to get this much oily fish via diet alone, we recommend up to three capsules daily. *The beneficial effect for brain and eyes is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA. The beneficial effect for the heart is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA.
