I love FERMENTED COD LIVER OIL, it has hands down had the most dramatic effect on my skin of any dietary changes I have made.
Dr Weston A. Price is the man we have to thank today for all the amazing knowledge we have about this traditional superfood.
Dr Weston Price studied primitive people and their diets. What he found was these populations had zero incidences of degenerative disease and also noted they were stunningly handsome and as a bonus had beautiful clear skin - no acne!
Dr Price found that the common denominator in these populations (made up of 14 different groups of isolated people from completely different continents) was that their diets were particularly high in fat soluble vitamins A, D and K2 (Activator X). These populations also of course had a total absence of modern processed foods.
Lucky for us fermented cod liver oil is one of the best natural sources of all these nutrients, as well as precious Omega 3 fatty acids, essential for healthy skin, body and brain.
Omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin A are two nutrients that are especially important for calming and soothing the inflamed lining of the gut and as a result, leads to skin that is far less inflamed and irritated.
Dr. Price found that the vitamins in fermented cod liver oil work synergistically with other important nutrients. In particular butter oil made from cows grazing on fast growing spring grass is full of vitamin K2 (Activator X). Other foods he found important for the proper assimilation of these important nutrients include; grass fed butter, saturated fat, magnesium and calcium. All found in abundance in a traditional style diet including animal fats, raw dairy and bone broth.
There are many cod liver oils available to buy today however fermented cod liver oil is far superior. Cod livers fermented in the traditional way retain twice as many natural vitamins with excellent vitamin A to D ratios.
This traditional process of course takes time and there is thankfully one company in the world who produces cod liver oil in this way, Green Pasture.
At Bare & Organic I only stock what I believe is the best and fermented cod liver oil from Green Pasture is no exception. I personally found it very expensive and difficult to find in Australia and hence why I decided to stock it myself to make it easier for my fellow Aussies to purchase. Plus everyone should know about this amazing superfood!
