The dietary oil market does not have the best reputation, and fish oil business tends to be the most sordid. The small, clear fish oil you pay high prices for is a scam. Why? The heart healthy oil is so industrially processed, it is ineffective and useless.
During production, fish oil is put under high heat, then undergoes a number of treatments. The supplement gets screened, deodorized, steamed, centrifuged, separated, neutralized with lye, washed and dried, mixed with worm excrement, bleached, filtered, clarified, stripped of vitamins, flavored, and more. After completion, fish oil is packaged and marketed to you as “heart healthy”. In fact, the industrial processing is why so much scientific research shows that fish oil does not help with heart disease.
So what does help people with heart disease? Pure, minimally processed, whole deep water fish. Cod liver oil, a common food during ancient times, is a much more effective way to get you the omega-3 fatty acid and vitamins A and D complexes that are so good for your heart. Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (CLO), made by Green Pasture, is made from livers processed naturally through fermentation. Livers from only high quality fish are pressed of their oil only after being fermented for six months. No artificial coloring is added, and the orange/brown tint varies depending on the batch.
Why waste your money on highly processed, store-bought fish oil? Your best bet at giving your heart the omega-3s and vitamins A and D it craves is to take Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil 3-6 times daily. Not only does your heart receive all the naturally occurring nutrition that comes with cod oil, but your skin and arthritis will also improve. Treat your body with the care it deserves.
