Cod Liver Oil and Fish Oil  are  the the best sources of Essential Omega-3 !

  The typical American diet contains a ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 which is 20:1 to 60:1.  The ideal ratio, which our ancestors ate, should be 1:1.  Americans consume a dangerously insufficient amount of Omega-3, a fat essential to good health but only found in fish oil and a few other foods.  Meanwhile, our intake of Omega-6, another fat found in corn, soy, sunflower and other oils, is far too high.  This lack of Omega-3 in our diets is a primary reason behind many of the diseases Americans face, and our shorter lifespan in relation to many other "first world" countries such as Greece or Japan.

Benefits of the Omega-3 found in Fish Oil and Cod Liver Oil

  • Helps fight and prevent heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's, arthritis, diabetes, ulcers, hyperactivity, asthma, Crohn's, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, autism, dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADHD,  and many other diseases

  • Increases your energy level and ability to concentrate

  • Provides greater resistance to common illnesses such as flu and cold

  • Helps pregnant women avoid premature births, low birth weight and other complications

While a helpful form of Omega-3 can be found in flaxseed, walnuts and a few other foods, the most beneficial form of Omega-3, containing two fatty acids, DHA and EPA, that are essential to fighting and preventing both physical and mental disease, can only be found in fish.  Fish of all varieties from any waters are now showing dangerously high levels of the tasteless but highly toxic metal, mercury.

We recommend above almost any other addition to everyone's diet - from infant to senior - fish oil and cod liver oil. 

Why  Fish Oil and Cod Liver Oil are the Best Available

  • High in Omega-3 containing the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA

  • Purified to the highest standards and routinely tested using AOAC international protocols in an independent, FDA registered laboratory to ensure freedom from detectable levels of mercury, cadmium, lead, PCB and 28 other contaminants

  • Free from chemical modification and processing

  • Pleasant tasting, with natural lemon flavor (no fishy taste, which signifies that  a product is rancid)

Choosing Cod Liver Oil or Fish Oil: An Important Distinction

The main difference between cod liver oil and fish oil is that cod liver oil is high in vitamin D.  In warm weather, the sunshine produces high and usually sufficient levels of vitamin D without any supplementation necessary.  Do not consume cod liver oil in the warm weather months or climates, as this can result in an excess of vitamin D in your system and consequential complications.  Conversely, in cool weather, your body needs more vitamin D, and so we recommend cod liver oil in cool weather months or climates.

A general rule is to take cod liver oil from autumn to early spring, and fish oil from late spring through to the end of summer.  Adjust accordingly the closer or farther from the equator you live.

 

 

Dosage & Other Recommendations:

Take one (1) teaspoon  of Carlson oil for every 50 pounds of body weight daily.

We strongly recommend avoiding sunflower, corn, soy, safflower, canola, or products that contain these oils.  Also no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats, no margarine, no vegetable oil, no shortening.  These oils are full of omega-6 fats and will only worsen your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. 

Acceptable oils will be high quality extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, and organic butter, or better yet, butter from grass-fed cows.

Another way to improve your omega 6:3 ratio is to change the type of meat you are eating.  Game meat like venison or other game animals that are raised exclusively on grass type foods are the best meats, but hard to find and generally more expensive than beef.  Since nearly all cattle are grain fed before slaughter (even organic meat), eating this meat will typically worsen your omega 6 to omega 3 ratio.

To get the necessary Omega-3 fatty acids, you should consider eating meat that is allowed to "free-range", that is grass-fed.  Unfortunately, most meat sold in stores, even organic, is not grass fed entirely.  What is important to ask is, what have they been fed in the months prior to being processed.  Most all cattle are shipped to giant feed lots and fed corn to fatten them up.  You will need to call the person who actually grew the beef or sheep, NOT, the store manager to find out the truth.
