Cod Liver Oil

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.

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
