Green Pasture Brand products

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've read good things about Green Pasture Brand's cod liver oil and was going to bite the bullet and buy some. Does anyone purchase from this company? Do you have favorite products? and why? would love to know if I should pick up anything else while I'm internet shopping?

Also, if you've tried their oil, are the capsules and oil equally recommended?

It's not as cost effective even if you took the dosage on the jar (2 capsules--so 4 if you wanted to take a double dose--keeping in mind the dosage on the bottle is 1/2 t. although I know some take more than that). However, I would never get the straight oil down. Ever. So, buying the oil would be less cost effective for me since I would never actually get any benefit from buying it.

If you get K2 from other sources, then the butter oil isn't as necessary. But butter oil is supposed to include the Wulzen factor which may help with joint stiffness (heating/pasteurizing dairy removes this).

I wonder if you could take it the way I take my gel vitamin C ... put the gel in an oz or two of water (i.e., in a shot glass) and then just shoot the whole thing.

And you have to take quite a few capsules (6?) to equal a tsp of oil...not as cost effective.

The only difference in ingredients is that the capsules have beeswax to thicken the oil.

The gel is a lot cheaper (96 vs 60 servings for about the same price). I use the cinnamon tingle flavor cod liver/butter oil blend. The serving is 1/2 teaspoon and I've found that if you swallow it whole it's much more palatable. I just scoop it with the measuring spoon, lick it off the spoon and swallow with a big mouthful of water. An added bonus is the cinnamon aftertaste with your coffee. It's quite good!

I like their combination cod liver oil/butter oil in the cinnamon flavor. You do NOT want to get the unflavored kind, trust me. The the cinnamon is quite nice.

I have the arctic mint flavor of their fermented cod liver oil. It's awful stuff. I was told that it was the "best" flavor... so I have nothing to compare it to, but it was REALLY awful. I'm thinking about getting the capsules too, but I don't know if they are "as good" as the oil.

I use their fermented cod liver oil capsules every day. I don't think I could ever get the straight oil down. I tried straight coconut oil once--which is far less foul--and I nearly puked. I am thinking about getting the cod liver oil/butter oil capsules next time I order since the two are supposed to work synergistically together.
