In brief: Unclear
Depends on the cause of your joint pains.
Some studies suggest that cod liver oil has anti-inflammatory properties and may be beneficial in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (autoimmune joint disease). The studies on osteoarthritis (wear and tear joint disease) seem less conclusive. All in all more research needs to be done.
