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

    • Sounds like food poisoning. Is this the same or similar reaction you get to CC? Did any of your family have it too? Who cooked it? Did you ask them what they used to prepare it? Was it cooked on a grill alone or in the husk? What else was cooked at the same time?
    • That sounds like food poisoning to me, since (1) corn has no gluten in it and (2) you have been eating corn fine your whole life. The only other alternative would have been if they used a coating or spices with gluten in it, but it seems unlikely to me for some reason.  Hope you're feeling better.   
    • I agree with what others said. You should do the research prior to posting about opening a business based on gluten free products or foods.  
    • My cycle is sensitive to gluten. As my conditioned worsened misdiagnosed after the birth of my second child I suspected my thyroid was off. A primary care Dr tested it per my request and I was determined normal results.  Even as gluten-free now if I get CC my period gets knocked offline and I sense my thyroid and adrenals are not functioning at full throttle but ironically I never show that per tests. I'm subinical - To assist my body back to my homestatsis and restore order to my period I find eating foods and taking supplements with focus on B vitamins, and supporting my adrenals help.  Warning my experience is once knock offline when my period cycle "fires" back on it is strong like when I was young and Newly menstruating. My body fires back on and is mad at the glutening. as cycling lady said your daughter may need to meet with nutritionist or have her levels tested.  My opinion it will come back but when the body is focused  on healing sometimes the period is dumped a bit, and with absorption issues the typical nutrients are going to healing so one needs to assure they have enough nutrients for other systems function like menstral and adrenal. good luck I'm optimistic it will return perhaps her body is prioritizing nutrients to healing. good luck
    • I myself run a gluten small gluten free bakery and do gluten free chef work. I looked at getting certified myself as a business. You can have your company certified by GFCO if you wish. I would suggest only buying from suppliers also certified by them. I myself only buy nut based flours from certain companies the specialize in gluten free only products. My bakery is a grain free bakery also. If you looking at getting your business certified it is very expensive. The cheapest route is a bit over 1k last time I contacted GFCO. For multiple lines, and online sales your looking at much more. They have to send in a agent to look over your set up, talk to you about CC, suppliers, packaging etc. it is not cheap either. You have to buy all new equipment, you can not used anything pre owned. Here are some links to look over. I can help set you up with some supply companies and ingredients suppliers if you need anything. Just tell me what your looking for and what your planning. I myself wish one day to open a gluten and grain free food truck and have been striving on fundraising for it for about a year now.
