Ingredients

Cod Liver Oil

Omega 3 marine triglycerides

Marine sources of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in fish oil, including in cod liver oil. Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids contain the essential fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA).
Both EPA and DHA are important for general health and well-being

Vitamin A

Essential for healthy skin, eyes and hair

Vitamin D

Helps strengthen bone and teeth development by aiding the absorption of calcium

Soya Bean Oil: Contains Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids are dietary oils extracted from land based seeds, nuts and
grains, including from the soya bean.

Hypol Emulsion is sugar free, gluten free and does not contain any wheat or nuts. It is suitable for diabetics, coeliacs and those who are lactose intolerant.

The cod liver oil in Hypol is refined and tested to extremely high standards. To ensure the purity of our product, the cod liver oil used in Hypol is regularly tested for mercury and other heavy metals associated with fish.

Extra Information

The elderly and vitamin D
Ageing is associated with increased fracture risk, due to reduced bone mineral density.  Studies are point towards Vitamin D deficiency as one of the major contributors.
Vitamin D is derived from a chemical conversion when sunlight comes in direct contact with the skin.   Decreased mobility and avoidance of the sun contribute to vitamin D deficiency in the elderly – the vitamin is also less well absorbed from food sources, such as dairy, as we age and less able to be converted into its active metabolites. 
In addition, due to illness, medications and natural reduction in appetite, many elderly are not consuming adequate levels of many vitamins, including vitamin D. 
Without vitamin D, calcium cannot be properly absorbed, which leads to bone demineralisation (osteoporosis) and weakness.
It is important that vitamin D deficiency is diagnosed, treated and prevented to help prevent adverse skeletal effects in the elderly.
