Green Pasture Products™ is a family owned business started by Dave and Barb Wetzel in 2000. Their business focus is to provide high-quality sacred-food oils just as they were made prior to the industrialized food and farming revolution.
Eco Chic is proud to offer Green Pasture Products™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil (FCLO). Why do we feel this is an essential to anyone’s wellness routine? Many of the great historical cultures had one sacred food which they relied on to ensure strong mind, body, and spirit; fermented fish/fish liver oil. The Might Roman Soldier was given a daily ration of fermented fish oil. The Stoic Scandinavian Viking had a drum of fermenting cod livers outside the door of his home. Grandma always had a bottle of cod liver oil in the back cupboard.
How much FCLO should I take?
Green Pasture Products™ recommends:
Fermented Cod Liver Oil or Skate Liver Oil (2-3 capsules per 1/2 tsp)
Children age 3 months to 12 years: 1/8-1/2 tsp.
Children over 12 years and adults: 1/2-1 tsp.
Pregnant and nursing women: 1-1/2 to 2tsp
Is the darker or lighter FCLO more healthful?
We have not found nutritional differences in our medium to darker color oils. When we tested a variety of factors such as hormonal, bone healing, and toxicity through a bio-feed back practitioner, the darker oil was slightly better when testing hormones but it was not a statistical study to draw conclusions. We are still learning… Some are concluding the darker the better and I am not in position to dispute this claim, nor can I confirm in a traceable way.
How do I take the oil?
Some will find the natural taste offensive. However, I have visited homes with children that not only take the unflavored, but beg for more. This is not how it was in our house. We make the Blue Ice infused which attempts to answer the objection of some about digestibility and taste. We use coconut oil as a carrier. Many in our community are aware that coconut oil assists with digestion and assimilation of nutrients. For this reason, we blend coconut oil with all the oils (Skate, FCLO , HVBO) for a well-rounded approach. The coconut oil aids in evening out the taste, texture, odor variations of the fish. The down side is that you would need to take more, approximately 1/2 tablespoon to get 1/2 tsp of the infused oils. In our community eating more oil is not a negative 🙂 As an alternative, you could put our oils in an ounce or two of warm water. I have heard of some making suppositories, mixing with a smoothie or tea, etc. Creativity is the key.
