Ok... Here goes nothin'

Still trying to recover after almost 3 yrs carefully gluten free. I've tried a whole bunch of things with limited success... But am definitely better than I was. Long story short, I'm getting ready to do the GAPS diet. It's not that far from how I'm eating, but I need to add in the "fun" stuff like cod liver oil. Yay!

If you take cod liver oil, what brand? Capsules or straight up? Fermented or not? Should I worry about the vitamin E Carlson brand adds? Have any of you had good or bad experiences with cod liver oil?

I'm ready to hear what you know. Bring it on!

I use Nature Made brand cod liver oil tabs which have no artificial colors, flavors or perservatives, no yeast, starhc or gluten. Each tab has 1250 Ius vit A, and 130 IUs vit D. I was having lots of weird vision issues for awhile, like 3 years actually, and when I finally started taking 3 tabs a day it is a matter of days and my vision issues started clearing up. I now take 2 tabs a day and am fine. Hope that helps!

Twinlab Norwegian Cod Liver Oil (mint flavor). The ingredients show ingredients as only cod liver oil, mint flavor. Where I bought this, the Carlson brand cost a lot more and had other stuff added. I just take 1 small spoonful a day (except the last couple of weeks due to cutting back on iodine and anything from the ocean). 1 teaspoon contains 4615 IU Vitamin A and 462 IU of Vitamin D.

I might possibly be able to handle it without flavoring, but why should I? :rolleyes:

We use the Green Pastures Fermented Emulsified Cod Liver Oil. Peppermint(less aftertaste, sludgier texture, mint-patty type flavor) and Cinnamon (more burps later, I prefer the flavor) are the flavors we've tried. Surprisingly, we find that taking it from a spoon is better than from a syringe.

I wanted to come back and update this thread, to pass on some information. I mentioned above that I was taking Twinlab Norwegian cod liver oil w/ mint flavor. Just because I wanted to be completely sure, I emailed them to make sure there weren't any gluten-y sources for the flavor. I just received a reply email, which says:

If you are referring to the non-emulsified, there are no gluten sources in the product. The mint is natural from the mint leaf and stem. Thank you for checking with us!
Just so y'all know.

Thanks for the extra info! I'm going to try some regular (tested for heavy metals!) and if I do ok with it, I'll brave the fermented. FUN! :D
