There's Nothing Fishy Here,
This review is from: Seven Seas Orange Syrup and Cod Liver Oil 300ml (Personal Care)
It's generally accepted that Cod Liver Oil has a great number of benefits to our health, some of which I've listed below (bare in mind this list is not exhaustive.)
It is said to protects arteries from damage by thinning the blood, stopping blood clots before they form, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels. It inhibits the start of cancer cells, help boost the immune system and fight inflammation. It reduces the risk of heart and kidney disease and it contains a good source of Omega 3 Fatty acids as well as Vitamins A and D.
All this sounds great but the sad reality is that Cod Liver oil be it in syrup or capsule form tastes and smells horrible. If only there was a way to get all those health benefits without the rancid fishy taste or resorting to swallow huge capsules. Thankfully these is and it comes in the form of "Seven Seas Orange Syrup & Cod Liver Oil."
Most commonly available in 300ml bottles (larger sizes can be found) for around £6.86 (prices may vary), it is slightly more expensive than the normal unflavored syrup. However it tastes great, even if the dosage is only 10ml a day (or two 5ml teaspoons) you will quickly fall in love with that orange flavor that totally masks any fishy undertones.
It's far easier to take on a daily basic because of the taste, and all you have to remember to do is shake well before use as it does settle out a bit. Storage instructions are as you would expect "... in a cool dry place" with the shelf life once opened being two months. If you take the correct dose each day it should only last half that time anyway.
The only counter indication is that woman who are pregnant should consult their Doctor before use.
There really is nothing to fault with this cod liver syrup. It tastes great and offers real benefits. Yes it's not the cheapest supplement out there but considering what's on offer it's well worth the cost. Children of all ages will love it, as I'm sure you will too.
