High Vitamin Cod Liver Oil - A Thing of the Past?
As the old English proverb (credited to Chaucer, circa 1374) goes..."All good things must come to an end". This is the unfortunate truth when it comes to our all natural, high vitamin Quantum Cod Liver Oil from Premier Research Labs. This has been a product many of us have relied on heavily over the years, confident in knowing that we were getting the best of the best high vitamin cod liver oil at a great price. However, it is no longer being manufactured by Premier Research Labs and therefore discontinued. The supply of this precious oil has now been depleted and is no longer being produced the same way anywhere. Only a small amount of the capsule form remains in our warehouse. We have searched the world far and wide for over two years and have come away satisfied in our knowledge that this particular oil is no longer available. Cod liver oil producers (the large mills in Norway and Iceland) have converted all of their operations to produce cod liver oil that has been heavily processed to the point that it now reflects an industrially produced substance, replete with synthetic vitamins and not nearly nutrient-dense enough to satisfy us. Given these realities, here's our advice:
What We Suggest You Avoid
Industrially processed cod liver oil has been bleached, deodorized and heated through one of several means thus stripping it of its natural properties and then reconstructed, standardized and artificially fortified with the addition of various synthetic vitamins and other supplements. These types of oils are available under many brand names from a variety of sources. From our perspective, whatever the brand name, they are all in the same category and not recommended.
What We Strongly Recommend
1. Consume Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil produced from Green Pasture. We will continue to offer and recommend the wide variety of flavors in both liquid and capsules. We are also considering the introduction of a smaller 4 ounce bottle, making this highly concentrated cod liver oil available at a lower price point for more people. As little as 1/4 ounce of the Green Pasture fermented cod liver oil packs a potent punch. Recognizing that some of us are affected by taste, feel, and the higher price of the fermented cod liver oil, we offer you the following alternative.
2. Choose our new Super Nutrient Trio. Consisting of our Radiant Life Desiccated Beef Liver, Radiant Life Krill Oil and an all natural, live source Vitamin D3 serum, our just introduced Super Nutrient Trio is an outstanding and synergistic combination of our most essential nutrients. Our beef liver, the most nutrient dense food is available in both powder and capsule form, is a powerhouse in terms of Vitamin A, all of the B vitamins and a great source of essential minerals.
