A blend of fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil in non-gelatine capsules. The fish oil is an amazing source of vitamin A and D. Plus EPA, DHA and omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 essential fatty acids and the butter oil contains activator X, the essential vitamin Weston Price discovered, now though to be K2, along with vitamin Es and CoQ enzyme families.
While he was researching the diets of traditional peoples with no contact with western civilisation, Weston Price discovered the combination of fermented cod liver oil (CLO) and high vitamin butter oil.
Each 750mg capsule contains 1/3 butter oil and 2/3 fermented cod liver oil.
Ingredients: Fermented Cod Liver Oil, High Vitamin Butter Oil, unbleached beeswax (as thickener), plant cellulose (capsules).
From the label:
Historically, cultures that gained the most benefit from cod liver took the necessary time and effort to hand-craft and ferment them. The major benefit of fermentation is that it keeps the delicate nutrients intact and actually increases them. Green Pasture continues this time-honoured tradition hand-crafting and fermenting every batch.
Historical Sacred Food - Dr. Price travelled the world studying the traditional diets of many cultutres. In every culture he discovered sacred foods that were carefully collected and prepared to ensure the strong mind, body and spirit of its people.
Why take fermented fish oil?
Many people assume that they can get Vitamin A from vegetables, but we only get beta-carotene from vegetables which our body needs to convert into retinol, the active form of vitamin A, and some people cannot make this conversion optimally. So for some people, a direct source of vitamin A such as cod liver oil is necessary.
Vitamin D can be made by the body through sun exposure, but in some climates (such as most of the UK), this is not possible for a large part of the year, so a food source of vitamin D is necessary. Some foods contain small amounts of vitamin D2, but it is D3 which our bodies need, which is what this oil contains.
