Cod Liver Oil

Hi everyone

This is a bit of a strange one, but here goes...........

I have noticed my knees are creaking quite a bit lately and can't help thinking it is because of the lack of oil in my diet these days (doing SW for 10 months).
Someone mentioned I should take cod liver oil capsules, but I am concerned that they may have a syn value.

Does anyone have a similar problem with creaking bones or know if Cod liver oil capsules have syn value?

Thanks all x

weird....consultante was on about pills yesterday and she said the only pills with a syn value are..
cod liver oil
and fruit lozengers and medicine sweet type ones
and lemsip, basically anything that has got fruity/ sweetners added to them
As I can remember Im sure she said 1 oil capsule is 1/2 syn
Basic/Non Branded Foods Cod liver oil 1 level tsp

Original 2 Syns
Green 2 Syns
couldnt find capsules
blimey, thats a bit off having to count that!! i wouldnt bother personally as its a beneficial thing that your doping for your health!! i have same problem actually and have been considering doing the same, im only 25 : ( hhhmmph x
2 syns! Gutted. I could have a quality street and live with the creaky knees........?

I wonder if lack of fat is the cause? I never used to have it, and you would think losing weight would help your joints, but I did used to use a lot of olive oil in cooking before.........?

I wouldn't have thought it was lack of fat... anyway, you're not going without fat totally. Just less of it. Your joints aren't lubricated with fat, as such. You could try a Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement as that is good for joints and bones. Or if you're really concerned, speak to your doctor about it. He/she can advise the likely cause and what to do about it.

To be honest, at 1/2 a syn per capsule, if you're only taking one a day, I'd ignore the 1/2 syn, it's going to make absolutely s*d all difference.
