There are all sorts of ways in which getting older can be hard on us. Children leave home, our appearance begins to change, and we start to find that things that were once a piece of cake are getting gradually harder. But it is not all doom and gloom! While there is nothing we can do to stop the march of time, we can prepare and protect our bodies with a good diet, plenty of exercise and the right choice of supplement.
Supporting the parts of our body most impacted by ageing, Holland and Barrett Pure Cod Liver Oil one-a-day capsules contain a generous 500mg dose of omega-3 rich fish oil. Looking after your brain function, bones and vision,, this supplement can help support certain areas of our wellness when we grow older.
Pure cod liver oil is absolutely bursting with vitamin A and vitamin D, both of which are vital for our general health and both of which can sometimes be hard to find in abundant amounts day-to-day.
Vitamin D, normally derived from the sun’s rays (making it especially difficult to come by in the UK), helps us to maintain a functional immune system and is vital for keeping bones and muscles healthy. Meanwhile vitamin A could not be more important for macular health, by which we mean all things eyes and vision.
Healthy omega-3 fatty acids
Fats are not always bad for you. In fact, omega-3 fatty acids like those found in cod liver oil could not be more important for our health. Especially rich in fatty acids EPA and DHA, cod liver oil helps to support brain function and heart health when 250mg of EPA and DHA are ingested daily.
DHA also helps maintain normal blood triglyceride levels when 2g of DHA are consumed daily and can help maintain normal blood pressure when 3g of EPA & DHA are ingested daily.

Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement which is available in a number of forms, including capsules and liquid.
Cod liver oil contains the omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid or EPA and DHA, as they are more commonly known.
Your body cannot produce these fatty acids on its own and so you therefore need to get them through your diet.
The NHS recommends that you should eat at least two portions of fish per week and that one of these should be oily fish, in order to get the benefits from the omega 3 fatty acids that fish oil contains. Oily fish include herring, salmon and mackerel.
If your diet does not include oily fish, then you may wish to take a supplement to ensure that you still get these benefits.
The DHA which cod liver oil contains helps with the maintenance of normal vision and normal brain function.
A daily intake of 250mg of cod liver oil helps to support the normal functioning of the heart.
A cod liver oil supplement is a quick and easy way to add extra nutrients to your lifestyle.
You simply need to take one capsule of Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules per day for optimum support.
Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules can be taken at any time of the day so it is best to choose a time which fits in well with your daily routine and one where you are likely to remember to take them.
You will be able to make the most of the benefits of cod liver oil by taking a supplement consistently.
These supplements should be taken with a meal so perhaps breakfast, lunch or dinner time would be a good time to take them.
Holland & Barrett Cod Liver Oil Capsules contain vitamins A and D.
Vitamin D helps to maintain normal bones and contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium.
The main source of vitamin D for humans is from sunlight which means that it can be difficult to get all of the vitamin D you need, especially during the winter months.
Therefore the NHS recommends that you should take a supplement with vitamin D daily.
Vitamin A is important in many of the body’s processes. It helps to maintain normal vision and skin.
Cod liver oil is a fish oil supplement, directly derived from fish and therefore unsuitable to both vegans and vegetarians.
