Spring is in the air and to most people this is a time of renewal. With that in mindlately I am on this crazy health kick and have just discoveredCod Liver Oil….I know, it sound awful and believe me it tastes even worse! It’s amazing how so many of my family and friends have suggested this ancient remedy to me millions of times and sadly only now am I actually trying this out!…I mean really? How have I survived all of these years? It seems silly that with so much information and knowledge out there these days, people still disrespect their bodies by consuminggarbage. Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely a culprit of such actions, but maybe (and I am just throwing this out there) it would be a good idea to balance the bad with the good…or at least make the effort to. In my case (which is typical in all aspects of my life) I feel so bombarded and overwhelmed with information on how to be healthy and what supplements I should take that I literally freeze and don’t do anything! What happened to the good old days when just eating everyday was enough? Think about it, how bad can this get?

So back to Cod Liver oil…believed by some as being the “Number One Super food”…seriously google it, this miracle oil has so many benefits like lowering blood pressure (by elevated levels of cortisol), a great way of getting your Omega-3’s, helps to treat diabetes (allows the body to respond better to glucose),has been linked to being protective against leukemia as is contains high traces of Vitamin A, most famous for contributing to bone health and….guess what ladies? This oil is amazing for the skin, when taken orally! It helps to control oil secretions and also prevents wrinkles!!! (why wouldn’t you take it?) I have been taking Cod liver oil for only 2 weeks and I already feel dramatic changes and my skin? As soft as a baby’s bum!

You can pick up Cod Liver oil just about anywhere (even Loblaws), and the price is very reasonable (not that we should ever put a price on our health, but in all reality these thing can put a hole in your wallet!)…and just a tip, throw it in a shake, trust me!

I have done a bit of research and the only contraindication is pregnancy ( some people believe that high level of Vitamin A may harm the baby). It is always advisable to consult your physician before taking ANY new supplement!

So moral of the story? Even though you feel good today, there is always a great potential to feel better tomorrow!
