I started taking it for osteo arthritis pain in my wrists. I started with 2 or 3 a day and was able to stay pain free with only 1 capsule per day. I'm glad I read other reviews because I cant swallow big pills. You can bite them and the lemon taste is delicious (add a bite of cool whip with it-Yum!) I missed a few days and the pain came back, so need to make it a regular habit. This stuff really works. I highly recommend it to eveeryone!
I'm testing this product out to see how it works for me.
My sister was at a friend's house and her friend was taking this brand of cod liver oil for her health and she swore by it. She gave my sister some capsels to try. After a week my sister started noticing a big difference in her back pain and hips. Her doc was going to give her a cortisone shot but she told him she didn't need it now that she was on these.
I talked with Sis last week and she told me about these for my severe rheumatioid arthritis, to just try them. So I bought a bottle of the lemon (her and her friend were using the unflavored) and have been taking them a few days now. It feels like a bit of the inflammation may be starting to decrese. My fingers, shoulders, knees, elbows aren't feeling as stiff and swollen...even my spine feels looser instead of so stiff. I've upped to 3 per day, with meals, and will work up to 5 per day.
I've chewed these (at the review of another) and they taste like a lemon gummy without the sugar. Not bad if you can't swallow a large capsul, you can chew it. No fishy taste or smell at all. These don't have a lot of Vitamin A or D to harm your body when you take 5 per day...a big plus!
I'll keep you posted on how well this works for RA inflammation.
ETA: It's been a few weeks now that I've been taking these. It really has knocked down a bit of inflammation. Now I can't tell if only the Cod Liver Oil is working because last week my doc put me on a new anti-inflammatory and it's done more then even the super-powerful meds I've been on for severe RA. I'll continue to take these, it could be the combination.
