Regarding cod liver oil and cavities

Commented on November 27, 2013

Hello, I have some questions regarding cod liver oil. In my country, I cannot find any fermented cod liver oil. I only found pure cod liver oil. Will it do to heal my teeth. I take one table spoon of the oil plus one table spoon of butter oil each day. I have small cavities. Actually two of them are very small. Others, I cannot describe as cavities since they are superficial it is like they are colorful and that is it. My last question. How long does it actually take to see results of healing / heal the small cavities. I am talking about cavities you only see when move closely to the mirror then keep focusing. Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply. Well, the ones I have here are either Seven Seas or a local one. The local one claims to have 550ml per capsule. It does not say anything more, though.

Green Pasture is the gold standard, simply because they're the pioneers in creating a product that isn't heat-extracted, a process that kills off a lot of what is beneficial about the supplement. The heat-extraction method all but removes the A and D from the cod liver oil, and many companies make up for that by throwing some synthetics in the batch.

I have not read that book. I understand the successful remineralization depends on the type of CLO used. I guess I'm pretty lucky in that my teeth are in good shape.

I don't know of a distributor that will ship Green Pasture Cod Liver Oil to Egypt, but it looks like there are a few that will sell you either Seven Seas or Carlson's.

Most of the research on dental remineralization of cavities was done by Dr. Weston A. Price, and has been put into practice (and made current) by Ramiel Nagel book Cure Tooth Decay. His diet plan and dosage recommendations are for the Green Pasture Cod Liver Oil/Butter Oil Blend which can be purchased in capsule or gel form. The dosage recommendations are higher for curing tooth decay than those set by the Weston A Price Foundation.

Green Pasture Cod Liver Oil has 1900 IU vitamin A per mL and 390 IU vitamin D per mL. Thus 1 teaspoon of high-vitamin fermented cod liver oil contains 9500 IU vitamin A and 1950 IU vitamin D, a ratio of about 5:1. You can compare those amounts to the other brands you are looking at to get a rough comparison in terms of dosage. You also have to keep in mind, though, that the fermented cod liver oil will have natural a and d, versus the other brands whose vitamins are often synthetically-derived isolates. If that's all you have access to, though, I'd say go for it.

Based on these values, the dosage for the high-vitamin fermented cod liver oil is provided as follows:

  • Children age 3 months to 12 years: 1/2 teaspoon or 2.5 mL, providing 4650 IU vitamin A and 975 IU vitamin D.
  • Children over 12 years and adults: 1 teaspoon or 10 capsules, providing 9500 IU vitamin A and 1950 IU vitamin D.
  • Pregnant and nursing women: 2 teaspoons or 20 capsules, providing 19,000 IU vitamin A and 3900 IU vitamin D.
Ramiel Nagel's Recommended Dosage For Dental Care *If the dental problems are very severe, this dosage can be raised. It is important to spread the doses out in order to maximize the metabolism of these nutrients Children (under 8) 1/4 Teaspoon 3x per day or 2 Capsules 3x per day Adults (age 8+) 1/2 Teaspoons 3x per day or 4 Capsules 3x per day

Thanks for all the replies. I checked all those threads plus Cure Tooth Decay before. Though, I could not find answers to my questions. I live in Egypt. I have a choice of either local cod liver oil which I used for one week without any noticeable changes. Recently, I found out about this one place that sells Pure Cod Liver Oil. I think its brand is Seven Seas. They sell as capsules and syrup. The Syrup is 150ml and the pills are 120. I am not sure about the number of capsules I need to take if I am to heal my cavities, though.

@BobKHave you read Ramiel Nagel's book, Cure Tooth Decay? He has a really good diet plan that includes cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil along with a set of great standards for boosting health and remineralizing teeth at the same time. Whether or not your cod liver oil is sufficient really depends on how it is made and whether or not the nutrients have been degenerated by heat. What country do you live in? I would try to get the Green Pasture product, and take it in conjunction with high vitamin butter oil--according to Nagel, the Vitamin K is just as important in the equation as the Vitamin D.

I searched PH to find what I thought was an applicable thread...

I understand the successful remineralization depends on the type of CLO used?

I guess I'm pretty lucky in that my teeth are in good shape and I've not implemented dietary changes to improve them. Perhaps someone else on PH can enlighten us or direct up to some research as to "best practices".

Hmm.. I haven't heard much about cod liver oil and butter for cavities (how does that work?)

I brush with calcium sodium phosphosilicate. Maybe look into oil pulling.

"When introduced into the oral environment, the material releases sodium, calcium, and phosphate ions, which then interact with oral fluids and result in the formation of a crystalline hydroxycarbonate apatite (HCA) layer that is structurally and chemically similar to natural tooth mineral."

I think the BLIS oral probiotics are a cool idea, though probably not as helpful once you have a cavity already.
