From the Arctic to ancient Rome, from the South Seas to Scandinavia, fermented cod liver oil was a sacred food considered essential for optimal health and strength.

So what is the deal? Why is it so important to consume fermented cod liver oil?

1. Auto immune booster;
2. Transports calcium to your joints and bones;
3. Best source on earth of vitamins A and D in perfect ratio;
4. Maintains and enhances brain function;
5. Naturally regulates cholesterol and blood pressure;
6. Best source of Omega 3’s, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and DHA*;
7. Eases pain and inflammation in the body and joints;
8. Improves ability to sleep;
9. Helps to fight depression; and
10. Rich in nutrients, enzymes, vitamin K2, E, quinones, Coenzyme Q10 and many other important biological

Fermentation of the raw livers from wild cod yields oil rich enzymes and associated nutrients that make fermented foods uniquely beneficial. Many of these nutrients are unidentified as yet, but we know that fermented cod liver oil contains ten times more quinones than the same oil unfermented. Quinones includes vitamin E and K2 (the more available form of vitamin K), Coenzyme Q10 and other important biological molecules.

Fermented cod liver oil also provide fat soluble nutrients, including vitamin A and D. Fermented cod liver oil is a must for women and their male partners, to be taken several months before conception, and for women during pregnancy and lactation. Growing children will also benefit greatly from a daily dose as well as for health maintenance, chronic disease or athletes of all sports at all levels from amateur to elite.

Fermented cod liver oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The body makes this fatty acid from omega-3 linolenic acid as an important link in the chain of fatty acids that ultimately results in prostaglandins, localized tissue hormones. This is very important for the proper function of the brain and nervous system. Those individuals who have consumed excess polyunsaturated oils, especially hydrogenated oils, or who have impaired pancreatic function, such as diabetics, may not be able to produce EPA and will, therefore, lack important prostaglandins unless they consume oily fish or take high quality fermented cod liver oil supplements.

Fermented cod liver oil it is not a supplement but a whole food which must be consumed on a daily basis at any age. There are many high quality brands that produce fermented cod liver oils without the fishy taste. However, during manufacturing, most of the brands remove most of the nutrients, especially vitamin D which leads to vitamin A toxicity. Make sure to consume only a high quality fermented cod liver oil which has the vitamin A and D in perfect ratio.
