Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend vs Fermented Cod Liver Oil

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 07, 2013 at 4:10 PM

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Blue Ice Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend and just the plain Fermented Cod Liver Oil?

Are there are benefits for one over the other? I see that the butter oil blend is specified as a gel -- has anyone had any experience trying it?

I'm looking to order some fermented cod liver oil but I'm not sure if I should get the straight up fermented cod liver oil or if I should get the butter blend...

Thanks!

The butter part adds Vitamin K2 as well, which is synergistic with Vitamins A and D. I think it might be better to get the one with butter (2... or actually 3 birds one stone)

Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced bites/Practical Paleo has a very helpful FAQs page that talks all about cod liver oil. "http://balancedbites.com/2013/02/faqs-all-about-fermented-cod-liver-oil-and-why-i-dont-take-fish-oil.html"

Dr. Weston A Price, the dentist and researcher who was the first scientific proponent of cod liver oil, recommended taking it with butter oil because of the butter oil's high content of "activator x," the vitamin K2 that increased the cod liver oil's bioavailability. According to Price, alone, each one had amazing qualities, but together, they worked like magic. They can be purchased separately or together in a blend. I prefer taking my cod liver oil in the encapsulated version--just a bit easier to swallow, IMHO. Unfortunately, the butter oil does not make the liquid or gel taste any better. If you wanted to buy the FCLO capsules and HVBO capsules separately, you can buy two jars of FCLO and 1 jar of HVBO and have a 4 month supply.

As a side note, a lot of people, especially those who avoid dairy, pair their Cod liver oil with skate liver oil which also has a high Activator X content. Again, you can buy 2 jars of FCLO and 1 jar of HVBO and have a 4 month supply.

i use the regular flavor of FCLO. it's pretty thick already so i can't imagine having to suck down something thicker. the taste isn't as terrible as people say, it's just has a STRONG fish flavor. i usually drink it with juice or coconut water- something sweet to disguise the lingering odor/flavor in my mouth. i have a feeling butter oil would probably make it taste better.

I have taken the FLCO oil plain, and the blend with butter, and can attest to the fact that taking the blend with butter does amazing things for the teeth and skin, and that is true even though I already eat lots of good sources of K-2, like aged raw milk cheeses.

I've tried both and prefer the plain version (cinnamon flavor though). The gel is just too thick for me.

I believe that the butter oil adds some additional vitamin D and maybe some omega 3's.
