Which cod liver oil to buy in Norway?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created July 16, 2012 at 9:13 AM

I've been thinking about supplementing with CLO for a while now, mainly because I have some skin issues.

I'm visiting Oslo pretty soon, so I wonder if some of the Norwegians can give me a tip where to buy quality CLO?

I wish I could give Green Pasture a try, but the shipping costs to Europe are ridiulous. Or is this butter oil blend really worth it? Has someone had good experiences with that when it comes to acne?

Thanks guys!

I live in the US and my nutritionist recommended I use this brand. It's great I think it is the most high quality stuff out there.

No problem! I live in Oslo, so I can help out if there's anything else you need or wonder about during your stay in Norway :)

Go to the Barents sea, catch a large cod, cut out it's liver and extract the oil yourself. Than say something Norwegian like "Alt har ein ende, så nær som pølsa: Ho har to".

The issue, at least from the Green Pastures perspective, is that All of the Norway Cod Liver Oil factories use the same industrial techniques, including heating the oil, and usually extracting the natural vitamins, and adding in the synthetic vitamins. Besides Green Pastures, there are no other cod liver oil manufacturers that are using the traditional fermented techniques.

Why not eat the cod livers while you are over there? :) We can only get them canned in the States, and a lot of people eat those.

M??ller's tran is the most commonly used brand in Norway. It's known to be of high quality.

The bottle look like this: http://www.axellus.no/images/Marketing/rotator/Mollers%20Tran%20naturell.gif

It can be found in nearly every retail store, and cost approx. 90 kr (15 USD).
