Cod liver oil or capsules?


Recommended Posts

I take capsules, have done for thirty odd years, had aching elbows and wrists from years of bricklaying.

Don't know whether it is psychological or not, I wear a copper band as well, and touch wood, have had no arm problems since.

I wouldn't take either, I just imagine that the liver is the purifying organ and any nasties, heavy metals etc are going to be found there,  prefer straight fish oil

I don't take fish oil due to the way it is produced. In much the same way as fishmeal/pellets etc are made, it takes a lot of marine life out of the ecosystem in relation to the amount of end product. For the same reasons I will not eat farmed salmon/trout.

As for contaminants in CLO, I know what you mean, there are probably some residuals but I do take it, in capsule form. I might stop for a while actually, as I am eating a lot more fish these days, might be interesting to see how I feel.

Aye.. perhaps the best way is to just eat fish !.... certainly tastes better.. better still, get some feathers out and catch your own

From what I remember it was in a brown bottle like what hactos cough medicine used to come in 

it was pure cod liver oil cant remeber any malt in it oily vicious smelling stuff my mother would say right open wide and pinch your nose to make us swallow it urg yuk

Well you know the drill god I shudder just thinking about it now to be honest used to feel a sick as a pig after swallowing it after a bath on Sunday nights

But then again saying that we never did have the usual coughs and colds or whatever lurgey was doing the rounds at the time in the early seventies so there could have been some merit in it I suppose lol

When I was a nipper our mom gave us rosehip syrup, welfare orange juice, and a spoonful of cod liver oil everyday, and just before bedtime a malted milk tablet.

Yup. All that, except a warm Horlicks before bed.
