Batch processed through a proprietary fermentation technique similar to that of making apple cider vinegar. Some will like taking their oil with a little water or milk. We love the taste right off the spoon! Also works great as an addition to salad dressings or directly to salads. Now available in a variety of flavors in liquid or capsule. Makes the perfect complement to X-Factor Gold Butter Oil.
More and more people are discovering the value of supplementing their diet with high vitamin cod liver oil. This oil is a rich source of vitamins A and D, both of which are not easy to obtain optimal levels of in our modern diet and lifestyle. Increasing numbers of studies indicate that deficiency of vitamin D is incredibly common among Americans, and that the lack of this crucial nutrient may be related to a variety of health issues. Additionally, high vitamin cod liver oil is a good source of the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, otherwise known as the "Omega 3s." This oil is thick and rich, full of naturally occurring nutrients.
This oil is regularly independently tested in small batches to international purity standards, so you can rest easy knowing that even with the most minimal processing of any cod liver oil, there is no compromise on purity.

Synergy of Butter Oil and Cod Liver Oil
Research shows that butter oil and cod liver oil, taken together, provide complementary factors leading to proper essential fatty acid balance. High-vitamin butter oil contains arachidonic acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid, while cod liver oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an omega-3. Moreover, the saturated fatty acids in the butter oil promote efficient utilization of the unsaturated fatty acids in the cod liver oil. Finally, butter oil contains a broad and deep range of important quinones including Vitamin K, E and CoQ enzymes while cod liver oil is rich in Vitamin A and D.
Our High-Vitamin Butter Oil
is extracted from dairy milk produced by Guernsey and Devon cows (high butterfat producers) that graze exclusively on irrigated grass in the northern Great Plains. This specific combination of climate and irrigation produces a rapidly growing specialized forage, ensuring optimal levels of Activator X as discovered by Dr. Price. Activator X and other nutrients are then further concentrated by putting the butterfat through a specialized low-temperature centrifuge process.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Does your cod liver oil have all natural vitamins A, D and E? Are there any synthetic vitamins?
A. The vitamins in our cod liver oil are all naturally occurring. It is uncommon in the industry but our sources are one of the few remaining that maintain these natural standards. There are no synthetic vitamins added. Read The Fourfold Path To Healing
and learn about the benefits of cod liver oil.
Q. Can I get too much vitamin D?
A. If you take cod liver oil in recommended amounts and eat a normal diet and have no liver problems, you shouldn't get too much vitamin D.
Q. Should I stop taking cod liver oil in the summer?
A. You can consider cutting down on cod liver oil during the summer months if you get out in the sun with few clothes on and no sunscreen during the middle of the day on a daily basis for 20 minutes or more. In other times of year in the US, the UV-B rays are diminished so vitamin D production happens much less robustly.
Q. Will I like the taste of cod liver oil?
A. Many of our customers enjoy our unflavored cod liver oil right from the spoon. Many children even ask for it. Others prefer the flavors we offer or they will mix cod liver oil with a small amount of water, milk, or juice. Some like to add to salads, sauces or dressings. Alternatively, we offer cod liver oil in capsules.
Q. How does one dispense a 2 ml dose of the fermented cod liver oil?
A. Each bottle of fermented cod liver oil liquid comes with a calibrated syringe that fits into the bottle's plastic top. You are able to firmly insert the syringe into the top, invert the bottle and draw the desired dose into the syringe. Cod liver oil gels can be taken simply with a teaspoon.
Q. Is your fermented cod liver oil heated during processing? Are any solvents used?
A. No, our fermented cod liver oil is not heated. It is goes though a non-heated lacto-fermentation process.
Q. Is it pure?
A. Yes, it contains only cod liver oil. Natural flavors and a small amounts of natural antioxidant are added to some of the oils.
Q. Is it "high vitamin cod liver oil?"
A. Yes. This oil comes from a certain species of cod fished during the seasons when the nutrients are at optimal density resulting in a nutrient content that is 2-5x greater density than other brands while maintaining the recommended ratio of Vitamin A to D.
Q. Why would I select the Peppermint Kid Tested Cod Liver Oil over the Arctic Mint liquid? Why is the recommended serving size higher for the Kid Tested liquid compared to the regular liquid?
A. The Kid Tested Flavors includes a natural emulsifier making it easier to both ingest and digest for some people while offering a preferred flavor. The serving size is larger for the Kid Tested products as their content of soluble fiber requires slightly more product to get the equivalent nutrient density of 1/2 teaspoon of the regular liquid.
Q. How should the fermented cod liver oil be stored? What is its shelf life?
A. Unopened fermented CLO is stable if stored in a cool, dry place for up to 2 years. Once opened, it is recommended that the fermented CLO be refrigerated. However, to prevent the liquid forms (Item #'s 05811 though 05814 and 05817 through 05819) from solidifying in the refrigerator, the product can be stored at room temperature for up to 6 months after opening. Fermented CLO in the form of capsules is stable after opening for up to 6 months without refrigeration (though the label states refrigeration is recommended).
Q. Is the Cod Liver Oil tested for heavy metals and toxins?
A. Every lot is tested for PCB's, metals etc... And every small run is tested three times for pathogens (standard food screens). Plus they direct other standard tests not required that they accumulate for understanding and discussion. All testing is done by third party labs as they do not have any in-house lab capabilities. The testing is done per FDA regulations for food safety and the products meet the requirements 100%+. The testing they do is beyond what you will typically find within the food industry.
