Fermented Cod Liver Oil & Butter Oil Capsules by Green Pasture
Green Pasture’s Blue Ice™ Royal Blend is a mix in capsule form consisting of 1/3 X- Factor™ Gold Concentrated Butter Oil and 2/3 of Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil. The cod liver oil is extracted from the livers of sustainably caught, MSC-certified Alaskan cod while the butter oil comes from cows that have had the right nutrition and living conditions for creating the richest butter oil. This unique combination product is packed with nutrients including vitamins A & D and high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids including EPA and DHA. Due to the handy capsule shape, the characteristic taste and smell of cod liver oil is not present. However, the product is also available in a more budget-friendly, liquid version, in the flavors Chocolate, Cinnamon and Natural.
Importance of vitamins A & K
Green Pastures cod liver oil is unheated and by nature includes both the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and vitamins A and D. Although it is sometimes said that too much vitamin A may be harmful, it is good to realize that many people are likely to get too little rather than too much of this important vitamin for our bodies, especially children and pregnant women. Vitamin A plays a role in the cell differentiation process, helps normal vision, is important for the skin, benefits the mucous membranes and like vitamin D helps the immune system. Vitamin D also benefits the calcium balance and the children’s skeletal system, facilitates the cell division process and is important for the teeth and muscles. The fish fatty acids DHA and EPA together benefit blood pressure, heart, brain and vision. Green Pasture’s Concentrated Butter Oil is obtained through an unheated, natural centrifugation process. The oil is rich in the fat-soluble vitamin K, which supports blood clotting and contributes to the maintenance of strong bones. Butter oil also contains a combination of essential fatty acids including butyric acid, lauric acid, and CLA, and is a source of trace elements including manganese, zinc, chromium and selenium.
Special discovery by Weston A. Price
In the 1920s and 1930s, Weston A. Price traveled the world to study traditional diets and eating habits. In his now famous book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, he describes how the Swiss worshiped the butter of cows grazing during springtime. According to Price, this was due to the fact that the cows ate fast-growing grass during this period, making the butter richer in vitamins. He discovered a previously unknown substance in the butter, which he called Activator X; it was later renamed vitamin K2. Further research by Price showed that this substance occurs mainly in butterfat and fermented cod liver oil and also demonstrated a synergistic cooperation between these two animal fats. These findings by Dr. Price are the basis of Green Pasture's unique product line, which includes butter oil, fermented cod liver oil and unique blends of these two oils.

The best of both worlds
The combination of cod liver oil and butter oil is more beneficial than using both products individually, Dr. Weston A. Price concluded after reviewing his research results. By combining butter oil, rich in fat-soluble activators, and cod or skate liver oil, you get the best of two worlds. Green Pastures butter oil is made from the milk of cows raised on pastures with fresh, fast-growing grass. This milk is made into a high-quality butter oil via a centrifugation process. Unlike many common butter oils, no heat is used in the process. This ensures that nutrients are better preserved. Green Pastures cod liver oil products are fermented the traditional way, without the use of synthetic additives. They proudly carry the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) seal, thanks in part to the sustainable and modern fishing techniques of Green Pasture's exclusive fishing partner, Alaskan Leader Seafood.
Sustainable quality essential fatty acids
For Green Pasture, quality and care for the environment go hand in hand. The company is committed to constantly seeking the most sustainable approach to the production of its cod liver oil and butter oil. For example, they collaborate with the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) and set the highest standards for quality and environmental protection for all its partners. In addition, various independent quality tests take place throughout the manufacturing process, from raw material to end product. Green Pasture is unique in its use of a mild, age-old, traditional fermentation technique that ensures that natural antioxidants in the cod liver oil are retained and that no heat is required. For its premium-quality Fermented Cod Liver Oil (FCLO), Green Pasture Products received the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) seal, which has so far been awarded to only a handful of fish oil companies worldwide.
About Green Pasture
Green Pasture is a Nebraska-based family business founded in 2003 by Dave and Barbara Wetzel. A few years earlier they decided to turn their lives around, to bring their families closer to nature and start a dairy farm. They soon came across the ideas of Dr. Weston A. Price. In particular his findings on 'vitamin-rich butter oil', made from the milk of grass-fed meadow cows, prompted them to use their green pastures to create Concentrated Butter Oil, a product now renowned worldwide. In 2007 Green Pasture expanded their product line with fermented cod liver oil products made from sustainably caught skate and cod. Today, Green Pasture Products is the international leader because of its commitment to its careful, sustainable and high-quality production process, for which David and Barbara have received Nebraska's Distinguished Entrepreneur Award, in 2012.
