Question 5: Which of the following supplements is considered to be beneficial for maintaining joint health?

  • A hot cup of tea

The health benefits of cod liver oil come from its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids support many body systems and may prevent a number of ailments. The human body can’t make its own omega-3 fatty acids, which is why you need to include them in your diet. According to various sources, benefits include:

  • lower inflammation all over the body
  • reduce pain associated with arthritis
  • reduce anxiety and depression

Question 6: Moby Dick is the favourite book of our sports therapist, James; but what is the protagonist’s name?
