I take 1 teaspoon a day and it seems to help my muscular and joint pain and mood. Does anyone else use cod liver oil? What kind of results do you get?


Cod Liver Oil - Number One Superfood

By Krispin Sullivan, CN

Doctor Price was right, as usual. Cod liver oil is very good for you, more than you ever knew. Research studies ranging from 1918-2001 give cod liver oil an A+ rating. This marvelous golden oil contains large amounts of elongated omega-3 fatty acids, preformed vitamin A and the sunlight vitamin D, essential nutrients that are hard to obtain in sufficient amounts in the modern diet. Samples may also naturally contain small amounts of the important bone- and blood-maintainer vitamin K.

There is hardly a disease in the books that does not respond well to treatment that includes cod liver oil, and not just infectious diseases but also chronic modern diseases like heart disease and cancer. Cod liver oil provides vitamin D that helps build strong bones in children and helps prevent osteoporosis in adults. The fatty acids in cod liver oil are also very important for the development of the brain and nervous system. "If you want to prevent learning disabilities in your children," said David Horrobin, distinguished medical and biochemical researcher, "feed them cod liver oil."

Unfortunately, it tastes VILE. :eek There used to be a product called Scott's Emulsion which , being an emulsion of cod-liver oil in water, was less oily than the plain oil and had a minty flavour. I realize that the idea of mint-flavoured fish oil sounds revolting, but it succeeded in being almost palatable. :rolleyes:

I also remember taking cod liver oil in capsule form, which was fine until the capsules dissolved in the stomach. Then it kept coming back ["like a song, a song that keeps saying 'Remember' "]. One of the first great joys of adulthood was not having to take cod liver oil any more !

I take 'Nordic Naturals Artic Cod Liver Oil' This brand is very mild tasting. They only had the orange flavor when I was at the store. They remove all the heavy metal and deoderize it then add the vitamins back in.

Does anyone know about X-factor and butter oil. I have read good stuff about it but not spoken about to anyone I know.

I have to say I agree with Egil on this one. My grandmother always forced us to have a tablespoon with cod liver oil after breakfast. (Most of the time it ended up in the toilet, but the oily fish-taste didn't dissappear until an hour or so later..) *shivers* After realising that we were spitting it out again, she started inspecting our mouths right after we had taken it, making sure that we had swallowed. Thankfully, she stopped doing that after a while...

Unfortunately, the stuff is probably good for you. Here in Norway we have been told, (through endless commercials for a brand called M÷llers Tran) that not only does it make us super strong, we also need it because we are a country deprived of sunny days, and thus we need the vitamine D..

I also started taking capsules, but for some unknown reason, I stopped doing that a couple of years ago.. Seeing that you get gummibears these days filled with omega-3, maybe I should start again? ;)
