Description


Twinlab's Norwegian Cod Liver Oil features vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) derived from naturally-flavored, emulsified cod liver oil. EPA and DHA are precursors to beneficial prostaglandins that act as hormone-like regulatory compounds. Research suggests that cod liver oil omega 3s and vitamin D can promote joint health, heart health and wellness.

Studies have found that cod liver oil can help relieve osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation and improving joint function. One study showed that cod liver oil can help slow down or prevent joint cartilage destruction in osteoarthritis patients. Results also found a reduction in enzymes that cause joint pain in osteoarthritis patients who took cod liver oil.

People with rheumatoid arthritis can have decreased levels of omega 3s. Omega-3 rich cod liver oil can help reduce joint pain and the amount of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) prescribed for patients with arthritis. A study published in Advances in Therapy found that cod liver oil can significantly reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, including decreased morning stiffness, painful swollen joints and pain intensity. "Cod liver oil can be recommended for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis," the study authors conclude.
