After reading Cure Tooth Decay, we have been working towards making further changes to our family’s diet to help reverse our daughters’ tooth decay. One of the changes recommended in that book was to supplement with Green Pasture Fermented Cod Liver Oil (FLCO) and High Vitamin Butter Oil.

I had heard of Green Pasture before, and had always wanted to give it a try, but hadn’t actually purchased it. Cure Tooth Decay gave me the extra push I needed to add it to our regimen.

We received the BLUE ICE Royal Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend in the Cinnamon Tingle flavor to try. This product combines X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil with Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil to provide a pure, clean and nutrient rich sacred food. It’s available in a gel form (like we received) and in capsules.

The ingredients include:

Fermented Cod Liver Oil, High Vitamin Butter Oil, Cassia Oil, Organic Stevia Leaf, Silica

About Fermented Cod Liver Oil

Fermented cod liver oil has been used throughout history to provide extra nutrition. Roman Soldiers and Scandinavian Vikings even liberally consumed it to ensure a strong body, mind and spirit.

It is known that fermented cod liver oil is high in vitamins A and D as well as other naturally occurring metabolites and co-factors. However, due to the nature of fermented foods, it’s difficult to measure the exact amounts, and they vary from batch to batch. Through history, though, FLCO has been shown to have health benefits that simply can’t be measured.

FLCO is the only natural vitamin D supplement that I know of. Typical Vitamin D (D2 and D3) supplements are manmade. So, I’ll go with the natural source every time.

About High Vitamin Butter Oil

Dr. Weston A. Price first discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930s during his travels throughout the world to study traditional diets. He later discovered the synergistic effect when combining High Vitamin Butter Oil with traditional cod liver oil.

X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil is made from the dairy milk of cows that eat 100% rapidly growing grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and heat-free extraction method are all key in ensuring optimal levels of Activator X.

Green Pasture’s High Vitamin Butter Oil also contains a deep range of Quinones, including Vitamins K, E and CoQ enzyme families. It’s even lactose and casein free!

Taking Fermented Cod Liver Oil

This has proven to be the biggest challenge for me. If I mix it with honey and add it to her fruit and goat yogurt, Zoë happily eats it. Kaylee, however, has started to refuse to eat honey at all because she knows I’ve been hiding it in there. We’re working on exploring some new ways to get her to take it again.

Here are some tips I’ve read for getting your kids to take their fermented cod liver oil.

  • Mix ½ teaspoon FCLO with 1 tablespoon pomegranate juice
  • Mix ½ teaspoon FCLO with 1 tablespoon tomato or blended juice
  • Mix ½ teaspoon FCLO with 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • Mix ½ teaspoon FCLO with ½ teaspoon Maple Syrup
  • Dissolve ½ teaspoon FCLO in warm tea (or water)

I just made pancakes over the weekend – I should have snuck the FLCO in their syrup! She also likes tea, so I’m going to try putting some in her tea next time with a little honey to sweeten it. I think cinnamon would go well with tea and honey (and maybe a little squeeze of organic lemon). We’re going to continue experimenting with ways to get Kaylee to take it until we find one that works for her.

The FLCO/Butter Oil blend also comes in a chocolate cream flavor. I heard from another mom that her daughter will take that one off a spoon, so we’ll probably try that one next if we can’t find a way to get Kaylee to take the cinnamon tingle more regularly.

If you’re as concerned about your family’s health as we are, I recommend adding a fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil supplement to your diet. Green Pasture is the only way to go!

My daughter learned to close her nose and defend herself from tastes she doesn’t like!

I’ve been wanting to try this, but it sounds pretty gross. It costs more to get it in pill form, and I have a hard time taking large pills anyway. But I’m also really wimpy when it comes to forcing myself to eat stuff that tastes gross! :/ Some people don’t seem to think it tastes bad at all, while some think it’s disgusting. I think I’d be one that just couldn’t stomach it.

I am such a picky pill person and these are fantastic. There is absolutely no fish after taste and they go down easily, they aren’t big. Good luck, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my health since taking them.

This was a fascinating review! I’ve just started researching traditional diets and I’m pretty convinced that’s the way to go. It’s so hard to find reputable sources but this company sounds so trustworthy! Thanks for all the good information.

This is great. I didn’t realize there were so many other benefits to cod liver oil. I mean, I knew some through friends and websites over the past couple of years, but the older I get, the more I realize you can never take too many vitamins or supplements that are good for you. I would really like to try http://www.greenpasture.org/public/Products/ButterCodLiverBlend/index.cfm. Thank you for the great review and information!

I was unaware of any link between tooth decay and cod liver oil. Interesting!

Interesting…can you bake it and hide it in foods before you bake/cook?

I knew that cod liver oil was good for you…but I’ve always hated the fishy after taste and the fact that if I hiccuped or burped, I’d taste it again… does this have the same effect , I wonder?

I would get the same one you reviewed. My kids take the regular cod liver oil right now with a little bit of honey and they love it. Hopefully the FCLO will be the same.

I’ve tried the BLUE ICE Royal Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend – Cinnamon but I’d like to try the chocolate cream too!

I APPLY THE OIL TO MY 4 YEAR OLD DAUGHTERS FEET at night and place a pair of socks on her. You body will absorb what you place on the skin, hence medicine patches…ideally I would like her to ingest for I feel that she would get more but until she can swallow a pill this is how we are handling the situation. I also give her D3 tablets to make sure she is getting enough. Hope this helps!

I ordered this tonight. I ordered the capsule form, and I plan to open the pill and squeeze it into orange juice. It works with the cheap brand we use right now.

I’m curious to see if your daughter’s tooth decay has improved since starting the cod liver oil/butter oil. I’m considering buy this but its a bit pricey. Please let me know of any updates regarding your situation. Thanks!

I have had difficulty getting her to take it, unfortunately. If she was older I would have gone with the capsules over the gel. I would take it myself but I can’t tolerate butter. We have cut back significantly on whole grains and some other things recommended in Cure Tooth Decay, and I haven’t noticed any further tooth decay. Now to reverse it!

I love the Green Pasture Products, but they are always out of Stock. Recently started getting the Green Pasture Blends from one of there retailers called Perfect Supplements, they always seem to keep better stock on these products plus they have discounts and coupons. http://www.perfectsupplements.com/GreenPastureProducts-s/50.htm

Thanks for the tips on how to take this! I purchased the chocolate cream flavor and I find it quite unappealing (chocolate and fermented fish aren’t too pleasing). I did find that popping the 1/2 tsp blob onto my tongue and quickly drinking a swig of OJ or OJ blend helps a lot (holding my nose of course). Even better is when I take my liquid vitamin supplement after drinking the OJ, it’s tart and slightly acidic and kills any fishy after taste. I didn’t dare test it on our kids in full force so I’ve been adding it to smoothie pops. I think the extra coldness from freezing the smoothies in pop molds helps too. I could taste a faint hint of ‘fishiness’ but the kids are completely oblivious.

I have started encapsulating ours. Read how here.

Thanks! I just might have to give this a go (for myself at the very least). I have been avoiding pill supplements, became tired of swallowing them plus I have a narrow esophagus (pills get ‘stuck’ often). Anyhow, thank you again and I look forward to seeing how the oil works with our family.

THANK YOU! I never realized I could encapsulate this myself. I just CAN NOT swallow the gel. Not even hidden in food. The fish taste is so strong that it triggers my gag reflex as soon as it hits my mouth. This is brilliant and my husband thanks you for finding a way for me to use this $50 bottle of supplement! Ha!
