Cod Liver Oil/Butter Oil Blend Unflavoured 188ml
Fermented Cod Liver Oil and Butter Oil blend liquid
This unflavoured blend contain a ratio of 2/3 Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil and 1/3 X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil.
Our nutritional hero, Dr. Weston A. Price, prescribed a combination of high vitamin cod liver and butter oils to his patients with great success. Of the synergy of the two oils, Price said ‘One without the other did not do my patients justice, but the two together worked like magic’.
Price’s principle measures of health resulting from his prescription were:
- marked recovery of dental health, particularly the healing of dental caries
- significantly improved general immunity
- strengthened vitality and robustness
Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil is a traditionally prepared, sacred food. The fresh livers of wild-caught Arctic cod are lacto-fermented and cold-processed, resulting in a pure, raw and truly nourishing nutritional powerhouse. Cod liver oil provides ample amounts of the fat-soluble vitamins A and D in their most readily absorbed forms, and the inflammation reducing and brain and nervous system supporting omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.
X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil is a cold-extracted dairy oil sourced from from cows eating 100% rapidly growing grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all-important factors in making this product the very best on the market.
Butter oil is a premium source of ‘Activator X’. Discovered by Dr. Weston A. Price in 1945, ‘Activator X’ (more recently thought to be vitamin K2) was determined to help both fat-soluble vitamins and dietary minerals more ‘useable’ by the body. X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil contains impressive levels of Wulzen Factor, Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Butyric Acid and is is also a rich source of vitamin E and Co-Q enzymes.

What is the difference between Fermented vs. non-fermented?
Non-fermented cod liver oil (such as found in health food stores and supermarkets is processed and refined by molecular distillation. This process strips away the naturally-occurring nutrients, so synthetic vitamins are then required to boost the nutritional value of the oil. This process also requires the oil to be heated to high temperature, affecting the stability of the structure of the oil.
Fermented cod liver oil is 100% RAW and is produced by age-old traditional methods, fermented for up to 12 months in large stainless steel vats, without the use of any heat. This cold production makes the oil extremely stable. It is completely free from synthetic vitamins and is naturally rich in EPA, DHA, Omega 3 and Vitamins A and D.
Utmost care is taken in the harvesting of this nutrient dense food.
How does it taste?
Fermented Cod Liver Oil has a very strong smell and fishy taste! Other cod liver oils available are molecularly distilled, removing not only the smell and taste, but also the naturally occurring nutrients. The strong flavour of FCLO makes it difficult for some people to take and we recommend starting off with a tiny serving size to get used to it. It can also be applied topically on the skin (such as the feet) for children who cannot stomach the flavour.
The taste can also vary greatly from batch to batch – the result of a 100% natural food that is not manufactured in any way to make it the same all the time. Sometime it is thicker than others, sometimes it might have white solid particles (fats) in it or be more gritty (more silica) than others.
What are the serving suggestions?
We find the best way to take it is to keep it in the fridge, scoop 1/2 teaspoon out, mix with a little bit of honey (or just straight) then simply lick it off the spoon and swallow whole.
If you find the strong flavour of this product makes it difficult to take, we recommend taking the cod liver oil and butter oil separately or start off with a tiny serving size to get used to it. It can also be applied topically on the skin (such as the feet) for children who cannot stomach the flavour.
What are suggestions for kids?
The Oslo Orange FCLO is a great one to start with. It is milder than the other flavour and can easily be mixed into small amount of orange juice or milk (about 10mls or so). We have found that It is usually easier to take FCLO and Butter Oil separately to begin with.
The blend is often quite thick in texture and usually taken straight off the spoon. This makes it a little harder to disguise for those who find the taste difficult to swallow! Having said that, lots of kids do take the blend straight off the spoon and ask for more - so it's very individual of course.
We don't recommend the cinnamon flavour for young children as the cinnamon can be too strong and is sometimes an allergen in kids.
When should I take FCLO?
Some people recommend taking FCLO on an empty stomach for superior nutrient absorption, but it can be a little overpowering.
Fermented cod liver oil can be taken any time of the day, with or without food. This just comes down to personal preference.
What is the difference between Butter vs. Butter Oil?
t takes about 4kg of cream to yield 230g of X-Factor Gold! What a precious food!
X-Factor Gold is made seasonally from May through October, from the milk of cows feeding on rapidly growing pasture. Rapid growth is the key to the Activator X content, and irrigation and rotational grazing are the keys to constant rapid growth. This is strictly maintained in the Green Pasture Products cow pastures.
