It will freeze a little, but that is not a problem, in fact it is often used as a way to extend shelf life and reduce the fishy flavor. So don't worry about it.

Does anyone know if cod liver oil can be absorbed transdermally? My toddler has recently gone on a strong tasting food strike and he's getting the tell take keratosis pilaris bumps that plagued me Most of my life (until I discovered ascerola... (more)
So I read that these two are synergistic and you should take both, that's why Green Pasture even makes a butter/cod oil blend which I've been getting. I'm wondering if I need to eat both at the same time, do they need each other for absorption... (more)
So I'm a little overwhelmed at all the info regarding pre-conception/prental supplementations. I would like to start taking fermented Cod Liver Oil, but what else? A folate & iron supplement? I feel like even a whole foods vitamin could be... (more)

I have severely dry/itchy skin for the past few years. Switching to paleo has helped immensely, but sometimes when I take cod liver oil I will get terrible cramps a few hours later and vomit or diarrhea everything out. What am I doing wrong? My... (more)
At what point does vitamin A become a real problem. 10,000IU is listed as the tolerable upper limit. I had 1-2 tsp (didn't measure well) of cod liver oil in my yogurt 3-4oz of beef liver pate 4 eggs etc... all told Fitday says in the area of... (more)
I was sick today so I supplemented about 50,000 IUs. We'll see if I'm alive tomorrow.Toxicity general doesn't typically start until 100,000 IUs and seems to be dependent on vitamin D status.
Wish I could remember where (maybe Chris Kresser's?), but I recall reading that skate liver oil was similar to cod liver oil except it was lower in vitamin A. And Green Pastures says that skate liver oil contains: unique nutrients ... such as ... (more)

I had my first serving of CLO today... dear god is that stuff horrendous. Is there some trick to taking it? Does it get easier? I just saw that it is also available in a capsule... is this as effective? I keep re-experiencing the CLO with... (more)
My favorite way is to add the cod liver oil to my bowl of bone-broth stew, which isn't hot enough to damage the CLO. It adds a rich underlying flavor that isn't fishy or liver-ish and as a base flavor my taste buds find it very pleasant.
I recently came across Cave Girl Eats who swears by fermented cod liver oil for acne/skin improvement. Has anyone else had similar success? Do the capsules work the same as the actual oil? I'm really trying to paleo-ify my skin care regimen but... (more)

I've been reading up a bunch on using cod liver oil to supplement vitamin D in the winter, and I had a question about vitamin A:D ratios. The WAPF states that the ratio of Vitamin A to D in supplements should be around 5:1. Trouble is, no one's... (more)

Currently I take 1 tablespoon of Carlson's cod liver oil each day. Before I buy more, I just wanted to take a survey on what everyone takes. I know I need a lot of DHA because I'm following the AI protocol. I listened to the Healthy Skeptic's... (more)
