In the early 1900’s a prominent dentist by the name of Dr Weston Price travelled the globe to observe pre-industrialised life in relatively untouched human populations. He found that many of the populations he studied were largely free from disease and had entirely different diets to the post industrial “western diet” back home.
The western diet which was (and still is) rich in processed oils, sugar and lacking essential nutrients. He attributed natural populations reduced rates of disease to be a result of their diets which were rich in essential vitamins, minerals and fats.
Weston Price frequently recommended cod liver oil as an addition to ones diet. Reason for the recommendation is simple, Fermented Cod Liver Oil is rich in vitamins A and D and particularly rich in omega 3 fats EPA and DHA making it a true “superfood” that deserves attention.
What is Fermented Cod Liver Oil (FCLO)
In simple words, It’s a supplement made from the liver of cod fish. It contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, DHA and high levels of vitamins A and D.
FCLO is a traditional food. It was a standard supplement in traditional European societies. The ancient Roman Empire used it to maintain strength of their troops, each soldier was given a ration. The ancient Vikings are said to have kept a barrel of fermenting cod liver oil outside the doors of their homes at all times.
FCLO is made by the traditional method of fermenting the cod livers with no heat involved. Thousands of micronutrients are present in this oil, including several natural forms of vitamin A and D. It truly is a whole food supplement.
Most cod liver oil is made by cooking the whole cod body tissues of fatty fish during the manufacture of fish meal. This process destroys the natural vitamin A and D present in cod livers.
Fish oil is similar, but has much lower levels of vitamins A and D.
Green Pasture is the only company that makes Raw Fermented Cod Liver Oil. They use a slow and traditional lacto-fermentation process which preserves the nutritional value, possibly even increasing the nutrients as most lacto-fermenting does.

Why Fermented Cod Liver Oil is so good?
It contains high amounts of EPA and DHA, which are both essential Omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is needed for proper brain and nervous system function. It also contains Omega-6, Omega-7 and Omega-9 fatty acids.
It contains high levels of fat-soluble vitamin A. 2/3 of a teaspoon contains approximately 475-792 IU of Retinol and 4,171-11,847 IU of Palmitate, both natural forms of vitamin A. According to the Weston A. Price Foundation:
“Weston Price considered the fat-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin A, to be the catalysts on which all other biological processes depend. Efficient mineral uptake and utilization of water-soluble vitamins require sufficient vitamin A in the diet. His research demonstrated that generous amounts of vitamin A insure healthy reproduction and offspring with attractive wide faces, straight teeth and strong sturdy bodies.
He discovered that healthy primitives especially value vitamin-A-rich foods for growing children and pregnant mothers. The tenfold disparity that Price discovered between primitive diets and the American diet in the 1940s is almost certainly greater today as Americans have forsworn butter and cod liver oil for empty, processed polyunsaturates.” (source)
Also vitamin D, a nutrient that mostly are deficient in, especially those living in colder climates that get less sun. As many of you should already know, vitamin D is important for bone strength, but it’s also important for blood sugar balance, fertility, cancer prevention and much more. 2/3 of a teaspoon contains approximately 2,145-6,744 IU of vitamin D2 and 110-218 IU of vitamin D3.
Excerpt from Weston A. Price Foundation
“This marvelous golden oil contains large amounts of elongated omega-3 fatty acids, preformed vitamin A and the sunlight vitamin D, essential nutrients that are hard to obtain in sufficient amounts in the modern diet. Samples may also naturally contain small amounts of the important bone- and blood-maintainer vitamin K.
There is hardly a disease in the books that does not respond well to treatment that includes cod liver oil, and not just infectious diseases but also chronic modern diseases like heart disease and cancer. Cod liver oil provides vitamin D that helps build strong bones in children and helps prevent osteoporosis in adults. The fatty acids in cod liver oil are also very important for the development of the brain and nervous systems. “If you want to prevent learning disabilities in children,” said David Horrobin, distinguished medical biochemical researcher, “feed them cod liver oil.”
Cod liver oil contains more vitamin A and more vitamin D per unit weight than any other common food. One hundred grams of regular cod liver oil provides 100,000 IU of vitamin A, almost three times more that beef liver, the next riches source, and 10,000 IU vitamin D, almost four times more than lard, the next richest source. Of course, cod liver oil is only consumed in small amounts, but even a tablespoon (about 15 grams) provides well over the recommended daily allowance in both nutrients.”
How much to take?
Weston A. Price Foundation recommends the following dosage:
Children age 3 months to 12 years: 1/2 teaspoon or 2.5 mL, providing 4650 IU vitamin A and 975 IU vitamin D.
Children over 12 and adults: 1 teaspoon or 10 capsules, providing 9500 IU vitamin A and 1950 IU vitamin D.
Pregnant and nursing women: 2 teaspoons or 20 capsules, providing 19,000 IU vitamin A and 3900 IU vitamin D.
Note: Green Pasture’s suggested serving is about 1/2 the amount as the above recommendations. For many people this is enough to see results, but certainly take the higher dosages should not cause any problems as this is technically a food.
How to take it?
You could opt to take it straight, though it will probably take some getting used to. A lot of people choose to mix it into other things. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Mix it into a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice.
