Tesco Cod Liver Oil
Advantages: Good price, easy to swallow
When I was younger, my mother would always have taken vitamins and supplements and always liked natural remedies, I never thought I would end up taking a handful of supplements in the morning, but when, several years ago, my knees started to get quite painful when walking up and down stairs or when I was crouching down, and I started to take glucosamine supplements which have been amazing. My husband has always taken cod liver oil, which I got for him in Boots, but when I realised that he took them to help keep his joints 'well oiled', I decided to join him in taking one each day. I also started to purchase my vitamins and supplements at Tesco as they had a three for two offer, as well as being better value than Boots.
The Cod Liver oil tablets that Tesco produce come in a white bottle with a green plastic lid, so you can quite easily pick them out on a shelf of vitamins. A bottle of 60 capsules, each of 550mg costs just over £1, which I think is very good value. On the front of the bottle, it states that these cod liver oil capsules are used to 'maintain mobility and flexibility'. Cod Liver Oil has been confirmed by research as being beneficial for the joints, and has also been found to be delay (or reverse) the destruction of join cartilage and other pain associated with arthritis.
I am not good at all at taking tablets at all, but since these oil capsules have a smoothness to the outside of them they make it very easy to swallow them, which is even better for me since they are about the length of a ten pence coin.
I have been taking these tablets for a couple of months now, and from what I understand it isn't that you would necessarily see the benefits in the short term, but rather it has the positive benefits on the long term condition of your joints. I take these tablets alongside my glucosamine tablets and I don't have any pain in my knees at all, but it is hard to know how much of this pain relief can be accounted for by the glucosamine, and how much from cod liver oil.
All in all, I am perfectly happy with these tablets, but I cannot currently confirm their effectiveness, but I can only assume they are doing what they have been proven to do, and that is help oil my joints! They are a good price, they are easy to swallow and therefore easy to take. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a good, cheap way of keeping your joints healthy.
Summary: A good value way of keeping joints healthy
