| Special Savings on Quantity Purchases of High Vitamin Butter Oil! See description below for details.
From the fertile soils and green grasses of the Midwest comes a most precious whole food supplement: raw, grass-fed, X-Factor butter oil! It is the job of happy Milking Shorthorn & Devon cows (high butterfat producers) to munch growing green grasses and to produce rich creamy milk, which is then skimmed and centrifuged to make beautiful, golden butter oil. Dr. Weston Price found the health-promoting properties of raw butter oil and high grade cod liver oil
to be truly extraordinary. You owe it to yourself to read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

Rich in essential fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), this oil offers a rare concentration of the "X-Factor," which Dr. Price found to be important in supporting the uptake of minerals in the diet. Additionally this oil contains "the Wulzen factor," (aka "anti-stiffness factor") which promotes flexibility and supple muscles and tendons. Refrigeration is recommended to keep out light and for flavor, however the oil is very stable at room temperature.

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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is X-Factor Gold Butter Oil Raw? How is it different than butter?
A. Our butter oil is made using only 100% unpasteurized milk that has only been heated to 96 degrees F for bottling purposes. The cows are totally grassfed so the butter oil is very yellow. It is five times more nutrient-dense than butter.
Q. How should the product be stored?
A. The product has a shelf life of about 2 years. It should be stored in a cabinet away from light at room temperature prior to opening. Once opened, please refrigerate. To extend the shelf life, butter oil may be frozen.
Q. Do the cows eat growing green grass all year long?
A. The cows eat growing green grass from April through October. During the winter months, there is no green grass, so no oil is produced. During the summer months the grass is irrigated so it continues to grow quickly.
Q. Is the butter oil organic?
A. Our butter oil is better then organic! In order for a product to be certified organic, the cows must be fed organic soy and corn feed. Our cows are fed only grass while milking. No hormones or antibiotics are used.
Q. What does it taste like?
A. X-factor Gold Butter oil tastes very much like butter, especially when refrigerated. Please note however that as a truly natural product, its taste can vary slightly from batch to batch.
Q. What is the X-factor?
A. In 1945, Dr. Weston Price described "a new vitamin-like activator" that played an influential role in the utilization of minerals, protection from tooth decay, growth and development, reproduction, protection against heart disease and the function of the brain. Using a chemical test, he determined that this compound—which he called Activator X, was found in the butterfat, organs and fat of animals consuming rapidly growing green grass, and also in certain sea foods such as fish eggs. Dr. Price died before research by Russian scientists became known in the West. These scientists used the same chemical test to measure a compound similar to vitamin K known as Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is produced by animal tissues, including the mammary glands, from vitamin K1, which occurs in rapidly growing green plants. Dr. Price found the highest concentrations of this nutrient in "the milk of several species, varying with the nutrition of the animal" and found the combination of cod liver oil and high-Activator X butter to be superior to that of cod liver oil alone. In the many butter samples he tested, Activator X was only present when the animals were eating rapidly growing green grass. In most regions, this occurred in the spring and early fall. (per research done by Chris Masterjohn, Feb 2008)
Q. When should I take it?
A. Butter oil can be taken anytime - with or without food. For optimal results, it is recommended that butter oil be taken in tandem with high vitamin cod liver oil.
Q. I noticed that the product label indicates that butter oil is not a significant source of Vitamin A or D. Does butter oil contain any Vitamin A and D?
A. Yes, however the amounts are less than those contained within our cod liver oil.
Q. How is it different than raw butter?
A. If the raw butter is totally grass-fed, the main difference is that the butter oil is about five times more concentrated and has no proteins or whey left - just the most precious nutrients.
Q. Is your butter oil free of casein?
A. Yes, the butter oil is free of all proteins, including casein. It is also free of lactose.
Q. How is it different than ghee?
A. If the ghee is totally grass-fed, the main difference is that the butter oil is not heated beyond 96 degrees F at any point in the production process, and ghee is extensively heated, which would result in the loss of nutrients and a change in fatty acid quality.
