If you do the research, you’ll find that most commercial cod liver oils are highly processed with heat that wipes out the natural vitamins A and D. To make up for the loss, most cod liver oil producers will add synthetic vitamins.
- Pure: Contains 100% naturally occurring nutrients: vitamins A and D; no synthetic vitamins.
- Sustainable: Authentic cod are caught hook and line on our own fishing boats in Norway.
- Unprocessed & raw: Oil is quickly and naturally released — without heat, chemicals or mechanics.
- Benefits: Supports immunity, vision, reproduction, bone and brain health; may reduce inflammation and promote healthy skin.*
Matt's Thoughts: Plot twist! I know, the PUFAs. What finally convinced me to look into CLO was the PUFA to retinol ratio, which turns out to be very small compared to egg yolks and butter. It is also important to make sure that you're getting enough retinol in your diet, an absolutely underrated essential nutrient.
Here's an interesting breakdown to ponder:
beef liver: 0.03 gram PUFA per 1000 IU vitamin A
cod liver oil: 0.1 gram PUFA per 1000 IU vitamin A
butter: 1.2 gram of PUFA per 1000 IU vitamin A
egg yolks: 2.9 gram PUFA per 1000 IU vitamin A
We aren't talking about guzzling grams and grams of fish oil, algae oil or krill oil. The entire goal with a non-fortified cod liver oil like this one is to get retinol, which is in a 10:1 ratio of A to D.
Rosita cod liver oil also contains a balanced mixture of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. This is different from algae oil, fish oil or krill oil which contain only polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). This is a whole food supplement.
It cannot be overstated how critical it is that we load copper into its active protein, ceruloplasmin, so that it can express its 24 enzymatic functions including ferrooxidase expression to manage iron overload/lipofuscin. The puzzle is big!
