Post by parigi723 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:41 am

Hello everyone:
How and where would you buy liquid cod liver oil?.....I read that it has to be be good quality,just as with the case of olive oil.

It sounds very old-timey. Why do you want it?

Without getting into the prohibited medical discussions, there may be reasons that this may not contribute to good health.

As a child, this was considered good - as was the similar halibut liver oil - in the 1950's

I happened to notice a bottle on my local pharmacy shelf a couple of days ago. You might check one near you or perhaps a health food store. Amazon? You probably want to look for a mercury free certificate.

Looks like Amazon has some in liquid form mixed in with other options. Even available in a couple of different flavors, yummy.

These are capsules and real expensive but probably the best you can find. They also sell a liquid version:

For a blend of fermented oil and butter take a look at Green Pasture:

I eat tree nuts and peanuts, as well as ground flaxseed.

+2 Carlson's liquid fish oil and/or cod liver oils among the best quality. The liquids are the best value as well compared to the tiny amounts of the substances you are after in most gelcaps.

There was a mini scandal not too long ago questioning the quality and authenticity of Green Pasture's FCLO:

Not sure whether the blog post is accurate or what to make of it.

When I was a kid my mother made be take a teaspoon of cod liver oil every morning. It was hard to get down but the worst part was burping it up the rest of the day.

My mother gave us cod liver oil from an eyedropper every morning. There of us lined up, mouths open, like birds in a nest. I, at least, learned to really like it. I don't know what my siblings thought but I don't remember any complaints. I also forgot when she stopped doing this.

Go to your nearest Whole Foods store, and you will find a nice selection to choose from. Take note of the brands that are offered, then go home and do some research on the internet.

I have tried the liquids, but I find the gel caps to be easier to use, and my doctor says the gel caps are fine.

The brand (Peter Möller's) that's marketed as Carlson's cod liver oil in the US has been produced for 100+ years. Look for the green translucent bottle with "Peter Möller" engraved on it. I'm sure there are other good products on the market, but this one's the original.

Disclaimer: I'm from the product's country of origin, so I'm not giving you an impartial opinion here.
