Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil
Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO) is real Norwegian cod liver oil that is fresh, raw & handcrafted from wild livers using a very rare ancient extraction technique which uses nature to separate the oil from its liver. No chemicals, solvents and mechanical devices are ever used during the extraction process. The oil is completely unrefined and produced under the total absence of heat, a process that protects its nutritional value.
EVCLO has a pale/golden color and a mild, fishy taste. It is thoroughly tested by leading universities and government-linked institutes. A true ancient oil in today's modern world, and one that their Norse ancestors would have been proud to consume!
The Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil is fresh and a rich source of vitamins A, D and Omega fats. It is suggested that you start with one half to one full teaspoon of Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil daily. For some half a teaspoon is all that is needed while others may require more or less depending on their body weight and type. Because fat soluble vitamins can be stored in the body you may find that after several weeks of daily consumption you can reduce your intake or cut back to a maintenance serving size.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is Rosita EVCLO fermented?
A. EVCLO is not fermented. Rosita EVCLO is produced using an extremely rare ancient method which results in a fresh, wild & raw cod liver oil that was the preferred oil for the traditional people of the Old Norse culture.
Q. Do the Rosita oils undergo any form of refining?
A. No. Conventional fish oil refining steps include degumming, bleaching, deodorization, neutralization and exposure to high temperatures. Although it is possible to optimize refining steps to reduce the loss of nutrients, these processes commonly degrade the oil, damage the fragile unsaturated fatty acids, and remove the oils natural flavors, colors and nutrients. High-temperature distillation may result in the loss of volatile nutrients and negatively affect levels of vitamins, cholesterol, unsaponifiable compounds, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. They may also result in a distorted ratio of the omega 3-long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (DHA and EPA). Rosita believes that such oils are not natural and do not resemble the form of oil their ancestors once consumed.
Q. Does EVCLO contain both vitamin D2 and vitamin D3?
A. Rosita EVCLO contains exactly what you would find present in the liver oil of a "living" wild codfish – nothing more and nothing less. Though vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) are available in a fish's diet vitamin D2 is almost absent in fish and fish liver oils.
Q. How do I store EVCLO?
A. Proper storage is critical to conserving the nutritional properties of Rosita EVCLO. Light accelerates the rate of oxidation, causing oil to go rancid more quickly. So does heat. When using this product keep it away from direct sources of heat and sunlight. Once you receive your Rosita EVCLO please refrigerate your bottle/bottles (if you are going to consume the product fairly soon). For longer-term storage, unopened bottles can be stored in the freezer for improved shelf-life. Once opened consume within 2-3 months. Overall, the oil must be kept dark and cold. The oil may become cloudy and thicken when refrigerated or frozen. This is no cause for concern. Gently shake before use. Keep out of reach of children for safety.
Q. Has EVCLO been tested to ensure it is free from toxins?
A. Rosita takes testing VERY seriously and uses a number of leading European Institutes to test their oils (Europe has very strict policies). Some of these include the "Institute of Aquaculture", a leading internationally recognized aquaculture research institution based within the University of Stirling, Scotland, (United Kingdom); and a number of independent Norwegian laboratories and institutions with great expertise in marine raw materials and products. Rosita oils have been tested for Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) including pesticides (such as DDT), industrial chemicals (such as polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs) and unintentional by-products of industrial processes (such as dioxins and furans). They have also been tested for heavy metals and microbiological contamination. The test results for Rosita EVCLO have consistently come back with very low levels of contaminants, and are fully compliant with stringent European Commission and WHO rules on environmental pollutants. The deep fjords of Northern Norway are some of the cleanest and purest ocean waters in the world. Rosita oils have also been analyzed by Universities and Government-Linked research Scientists, some of whom are involved in monitoring the quality of fish oils. Rosita oils are also currently been used in scientific research at leading European Universities.
Q. Is EVCLO gluten free, dairy free, soy free & processed on equipment that is gluten free, dairy free and soy protein free?
Yes. It is also GMO-free and free of all known common allergens (except fish).
Q. Is EVCLO safe for everyone to use?
