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. Is the cod liver oil heated in processing? Are any solvents used?
A. In general, cod liver oils are heated during the process of extracting the oil from the fish liver. We do not consider this a raw food but it is processed as little as possible, with no solvents used in its production.
Q. Is it pure?
A. Yes. This quantum-state, concentrated, pure and US Pharmaceutical grade cod liver oil from Norway is the best quality in the world.
Q. Why do the capsules cost more than the liquid?
A. The expense of encapsulating into vegicaps is clearly a factor.
Q. Why choose capsules over liquid cod liver oil?
A. The capsules add convenience. There is no measuring required. Capsules also shield the fish oil taste and texture for those who prefer to take their cod liver oil in a non-liquid form.
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. What is the expiration date for Quantum Cod Liver Oil?
A. Premier Quantum Cod Liver Oil is recommended to be consumed within three years from the date it was bottled. The bottling date can be found below the barcode. It is the first six digits before the hyphen, and it reads: year, month, day. So if the numbers read: 110129, the bottling date is: January 29, 2011.
Q. Will this all natural cod liver oil continue to be offered?
A. Radiant Life will continue to offer it as long as the supply is available. We will never provide cod liver oil with synthetically produced vitamins.
Q. Why do you carry different cod liver oils? What's the difference between fermented and non-fermented?
A. Both of our cod liver oils (Quantum and Fermented) are high vitamin with naturally occurring Vitamins A and D. The Weston A. Price Foundation has recently endorsed both products. The vitamin potency of the Quantum is in fact higher and has a Vitamin A to Vitamin D ratio of 10:1. The Fermented has a Vitamin A to Vitamin D ratio of about 5:1. Some people prefer lower levels of Vitamin A and therefore choose the fermented. Others comment that they value the digestive benefits of fermented products. Fermented is available flavor & antioxidant-free as well as in a variety of flavors. Others prefer the taste and feel of the unfermented as well as its lower price point. Quantum cod liver oil capsules are 38 cents per serving while the cost of Fermented cod liver oil capsules are 50 cents per serving.
