Cod liver oil review and giveaway

I recently had the chance to try Green Pastures Cod Liver Oil.  You ask, “Cod liver oil?  How can she consume cod liver oil?”  I’m here to tell you that it’s really not as awful as it may sound.  It’s also very good for you.  Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil contains vitamins A and D, EPA, DHA, and Omega Fatty Acids.

Green Pastures is the only company in the world to make fermented cod liver oil.  Other companies heat the oil which causes it to lose certain nutrients in the process.  They offer several different flavors and types.  They also offer it in capsules, liquid, or gel.  They even offer a kid approved flavor.  An Emulsified Fermented Cod Liver Oil, a Fermented Cod Liver Oil, and a High Vitamin Butter/Fermented Cod Liver Oil blend are available, depending on your preference.

My 4 kids tried the Peppermint Emulsified Cod Liver Oil.  Out of the 4, only one liked it straight up.  Another suggestion was to mix with yogurt.  They weren’t too keen on that either.  The way that they did like it was with juice.  I chose to use Knudsen’s juice since it seemed to be the healthiest of juices.

I tried the Unflavored High Vitamin Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil combination.  According to the Green Pastures website: Dr. Weston A. Price discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930’s. The pinnacle of his X-Factor discovery was the extreme synergistic effect between High Vitamin Butter Oil and traditional cod liver oil. “One without the other did not do his patients justice, but the two together worked like magic”.  I liked the taste.  If you don’t like fish or fishy tastes, I don’t think you’d like the unflavored.  I personally love fish, so perhaps that’s why I didn’t mind the unflavored.  In the past, I’ve tried the Cinnamon Tingle flavor.  The Cinnamon Tingle flavor masks the fish taste quite well for those of you who don’t like the fishy taste.
