is it ok to take both cod liver oil and fish oil?

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 benefits that aren't in the FCLO? Thanks!

I think I'm going to go the same route and stop the fish oil now. Just wanted to make sure I will not be missing out on something if I cut it out. I take a daily 1000mg D and a High level K (I think 5000mg?) 2x a week. Cut my multi-vit dose in half too. Thanks for the reply.

That is ambitious but I am sure beneficial. I'm taking baby steps with the FCLO right now but so far so good. Thanks.

FWIW, I cut out the fish oil and only use FCLO/butter oil now, as I found the FCLO to surpass the fish oil in regards to benefits. I also stopped taking an extra Vitamin D supplement as the FCLO should provide adequate Vitamin D as well. I say save your money and cut out the fish oil.

I believe it's usually that cod liver has extra benefits that fish oil does not (vitamin d). It wouldn't be harmful in my opinion to take both but I'd just do one or the other. But I take a lot more than the recommended dose. I take Nordic Naturals omega 3. Recd at 2 and I take... 6-8. Daring aren't I?
