New squid supplement for joint pain and heart health
This week Holland & Barrett are set to launch a brand new squid pill, which could be the answer to a variety of ailments, including memory problems, pain in the joints, bad skin and fatigue.
With five times more omega-3 DHA than cod liver oil capsules, the supplement called Bioglan Calamari Gold is now considered the most effective way of boosting your recommended daily intake of the essential fatty acid.
Made from the liver of squid, it is the first of its kind in the UK and will soon be on sale with prices starting from £19.99.
Numerous studies have highlighted the benefits of omega-3 – particularly its positive effects on brain function, heart health and blood pressure.
It is also linked to improved joint health as it contains natural anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce the likelihood of arthritis.
Other health benefits provided by the essential fatty acid include:
- Lowered risk of heart disease.
- Reduced risk of developing postnatal depression.
- Helps to soothe eczema and prevents skin-ageing.
- Promotes a healthy pregnancy.
- Protects the skin.
Nutritionist Suzie Sawyer said: “Omega-3 acids are a group of essential fatty acids which can’t be created by the body. DHA is the predominant omega-3 in many of our vital organs and is fundamental for our health.”
