Fermented Cod Liver Oil Benefits

What is fermented cod liver oil? Sounds pretty disgusting right? Well, here’s why it’s a great supplement for you and your family to take. It provides your body with two important fat soluble vitamins that many are deficient in: vitamin A and vitamin D. Many individuals have healed cavities naturally and remineralized their teeth by incorporating fermented cod liver oil in their diets, along with removing all grains.

Although you can get these two vitamins from foods, they are hard to obtain because either a person’s body cannot absorb all of that vitamin or they are not eating enough of the foods that provide them. Vitamin A is hard to obtain, you can get it from organ meats like liver or grass fed dairy. Vitamin D is best from the sun but many areas of the world do not have sun year round so many become deficient. The brand I have used and love comes in two types: 1. plain fermented cod liver oil and 2. A blend of the fermented cod liver oil with butter oil. The butter oil contains vitamin K2 which works synergistically with the cod liver oil. The company did inform me that the butter oil is casein and lactose free BUT MAY contain trace amounts. If you are very sensitive to dairy I would recommend this butter free fermented cod liver oil. If you are ok with dairy, this cod liver oil is a great mix.
