I'm reaching a 6 months period of strict Paleo. I literally didn't cheat once since the beginning of March. It seems like I managed to enhance my body quite bit, even overcame hypothyroid symptoms. No constipation anymore, clear thinking, lot of... (more)
I accidentally left my bottle of Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil on the windowsill for about an hour. I'd say it was probably subjected to temps around 75 or 80 F. The bottle was about 1/4 full and the sun was shining on the top half of the... (more)
A slightly different take on the question than this one: http://paleohacks.com/questions/1096/cod-liver-oil-and-vitamin-a-are-toxic#axzz25bPKjtWe I keep seeing folks recommending Cod Liver Oil (fermented CLO is especially popular) and wonder if... (more)
I'm taking Green Pastures FCLO w/ butter oil and GNC triple strength fish oil (1 a day). Just started the FCLO capsules (2 a day) a few weeks ago and feel so much better. Should I get rid of the fish oil and save some dough or are there other... (more)

Every time I take Fish Oil or even Cod Liver Oil, I start flaring up and breaking out on my shoulders and face. The Cod Liver Oil is good quality, Green Pasture, but I still break out just like fish oil. Does anyone know why this is happening? And... (more)

I have a question about the Fermented Cod Liver Oil. I really can't afford it, I may be able to put it in the budget again when I return to work but right now I'm a stay at home mom. Is it even worth it to take the Carlson brand CLO that I'm... (more)
If I take the recommended dose of Green Pasture FCLO each day, would it be redundant to also take a basic vitamin D supplement in pill form? Do any of you take both? So many people talk about supplementing with vitamin D, to the extent that it... (more)
I'd done some research into FCLO a while back, and I remember reading from several sources that its Vitamin D content was "standardized" around 1000 IU/tsp., or 200 IU/mL. However, I'm looking at Green Pasture's "Test Data" page (LINK), and they... (more)
Has anyone tried the new infused coconut oil? I'm getting ready to order the FCLO/BO, but saw there is the coconut oil one now. Is it comparable? Easier to take? Sometimes the gel is a little thick for me. Any thoughts on this product are... (more)
There have been several threads on supplements, but not much evidence indicating how useful they really are. Chris Kresser just wrote a piece about how he doesn't recommend supplements for most people, but at the end, notes a couple things people... (more)
