Fermented Cod Liver Oil Capsules by Green Pasture
Green Pasture’s Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil in capsule form is made from the livers of sustainable wild-caught, MSC-certified Alaskan cod. Green Pasture cod liver oil is fermented the traditional way: a mild and careful process that takes six months to complete. The end product is a natural source of vitamins and essential fatty acids that can be easily absorbed into our body. The advantage of cod liver oil in capsule form is that the natural, peculiar taste of cod liver oil is not present. The cod liver oil is also available in liquid form, however. This liquid variant is more budget-friendly and especially recommended for children and adults who appreciate an added taste: the liquid variant is available in the flavors Mint, Orange, Cinnamon and Natural.
Why use liver oil ?
Although cod liver oil may remind many people of the 1950s, it has recently become popular again to consume cod liver oil daily. More and more people see what this powerful substance can do for our health. Green Pasture’s high-quality fermented cod liver oil is particularly rich in vitamins A & D and in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Vitamin A plays a vital role in the cell differentiation process, facilitates normal vision, is important for the skin, benefits the mucous membranes and, like vitamin D, supports the immune system. Vitamin D also benefits the calcium balance and the skeleton of children, helps in 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.
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.

Green Pasture's unique fermented cod liver oil
The use of fermented fish products has a long history in many traditional cultures and has also played an important role in the health of those cultures. Green Pasture honors these traditions, using the same age-old fermentation method for extracting cod liver oil. Without using synthetic additives, the livers are mixed with salt and broth, after which the whole is left to ferment for a few months before the oil is extracted. Green Pastures cod liver oil products proudly wear the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) mark of excellence, thanks to the durable 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 was founded in 2003 by Dave and Barbara Wetzel. The couple had decided a few years earlier to leave the fast-paced city life behind with their children and start a dairy farm on the green pastures of Nebraska. When Dave came into contact with Dr. Weston A. Price and his research into 'vitamin-rich butter oil', they decided to change course again. In his studies Price describes how rich butter oil can only be made from the milk of cows on the fast-growing grass of green pastures. Dave and Barbara decided to produce this butter oil themselves. Learning of Price’s discovery that taking butter oil in combination with cod or skate oil creates a powerful nutritional synergy, in 2007 Green Pasture expanded its product line with fermented cod liver oil from MSC-certified wild-caught cod and skate, for which they entered into a sustainable partnership with several prominent partners. Green Pasture is proud of its high-quality, nutritious products manufactured from the best available raw materials with great care, dedication and commitment to the planet.
