I recently bought some cod liver oil capsules, which contained around 500mg of cod liver oil. The packet recommended taking one capsule a day.
Previously I had bought capsules that contained around 1g of cod liver oil, and on the packet it also said to take one a day, and no more.
I also have a bottle of “Pure Cod Liver Oil” in the kitchen which recommends taking 2 teaspoons of it once a day. That works out to be 9.2g of cod liver oil. However, it tastes absolutely horrible and so I switched to capsules.
I am now pretty confused as to how much cod liver oil I should be having a day. There is a huge difference between 0.5g and 9.2g, and although I would like to protect my joints, I don’t want any dodgy side effects that may occur from having too much cod liver oil.
