Fermented cod liver oil (FCLO) contains fat-soluble nutrients like Omega-3 (DHA/EPA), Vitamin A/D; nutrients that many of us lack, especially as we get older or have digestive issues. If you have ever been pregnant, you’ll prize this food even more because it helps replenish the stash of fat-soluble nutrients your body gave your growing baby.
Where I live in New England it’s often cold with limited sun-shine, so I keep fermented cod oil on hand for my family to take year-round. This daily practice brings peace of mind, knowing everyone is getting what they need. I also have the pleasure of getting a thumbs up when I take my boys to the dentist – not one cavity since we started FCLO 😉 I wrote a post about keeping kids cavity-free here.

How it’s made makes a difference
Think you’re good with the modern day made cod oil from the health food store? Maybe, but if it’s not Green Pasture look close at the ingredients as most cod oil is made with heat, solvents, bleaching, and deodorizing to extend shelf life; none of which are good for us.
This modern process destroys delicate fat-soluble vitamins found in cod oil – the very ones you are after for healing properties – which means synthetic versions of A, D, and E are added. This is no good for anytime you add a synthetic you need to worry about toxic build-up from fake vitamins. A whole food source like FCLO is recommended to supply natural vitamin A/D as it contains other nutritional co-factors that work in a synergistic way. Got my geek on 🤓
Green Pastures ™ makes fermented cod liver oil like your great grandma may have. They don’t heat or process, so it’s a raw ‘living food’ your body can metabolize. This family-owned company tests each batch of FCLO for heavy metals and toxic contaminants and works with sustainable fishermen. The oil comes in a variety of flavors (i.e. cinnamon, orange, chocolate) and forms (i.e. capsule, liquid, balm). If you are dealing with tooth or bone decay, check out the Royal Butter Blends; the best choice for effective and fast results.
