Part 1: Why is the fermented cod liver oil even better nutritionally than the regular cod liver oil?
There’s not much price difference between the regular Blue Ice CLO (that I used to recommend) and fermented CLO liquid, when you take into account the daily serving size difference.
However, there is quite a difference in the price of the capsules, so it might be worth trying to get the liquid down (I’m going to make an attempt).
Just to show you the approximate cost difference in the liquid vs. the capsules, I’ll show you a comparison using prices (current at the time I wrote this) for 1 bottle of liquid (237 dose) vs. 120 capsules (60 dose), although keep in mind, you can get it cheaper the more you buy. The liquid costs 20 cents per dose; the capsules cost 64 cents per dose!
(I’ll be paid a small amount when you click to buy through this link – and I thank you!)
ONE LAST NOTE:
When you get your Fermented Cod Liver Oil, you’ll notice that the dosage recommendations are lower than what the Weston A. Price recommended doses page says you should take. Normally I would then just increase my dose, but in this case I will only take what is recommended on the bottle for two reasons:
- The expense!
- Dave at Green Pastures said that the amounts of Vitamin A & D on the label are just the minimum guaranteed amounts, because they have to put something on the label; however, there is actually much more A & D, even more than in regular CLO, (what a superfood!) but it is still always safe, because it is how God provided it in nature. The Fermented Cod Liver Oil is natural, and not easy to pin down on amounts of beneficial nutrients, because it is a living food and difficult to test.
