Anyone take this? Do you think it's worth the $$.

DH, DS and I take it. The jury's still out on whether or not it's worth it...I'll keep taking it for now. DH's cholesterol didn't go down as much as I'd hoped while taking it. I do think it helped me with my seasonal depression this winter. DS was extremely healthy this winter, one day of a fever and that's all he's had all winter! Not sure if it's the CLO or the vitamins he's had or just good luck or what.

We all take it here, too. Actually, we split our daily dose up between fermented skate oil and cod liver oil. The kids get about 1 tsp/day and DH and I take a bit more than that. I do think it is worth the $. I buy them in bulk to get a discount on each bottle, though. And, Green Pastures will offer sales a few times a year and I will stock up then, too.

Kitchen Stewardship had a great article on FCLO.

The Healthy Home Economist also has several good articles about it.

Another snippet from the Healthy Home Economist.

It is also highly reccomnded that FCLO be taken with butter oil, which Green Pastures sells. But, you can easily (and more cheaply) make your own with store-bought organic butter. It won't be as good as grass-fed butter oil, but we can't afford Green Pasture's brand. Or, you can just buy good quality Ghee.

do you think it's as effective if you are eating a fair amount of grass-fed butter? I try to buy the grass fed butter at least to use on our toast in the morning- it's expensive so I can't use it on anything but that, but I'm hoping it works as well as the FCLO+butter oil combo.

So what is the difference between fermented and regular cod liver oil?
