I have not met a single pregnant woman who could stomach fermented cod liver oil during her entire pregnancy.At some point in there, she just couldn’t take it. Maybe it was the smell. Maybe it was the taste. Maybe it was her overly active gag reflex.
And even if you’re not pregnant, you may still struggle with taking it. You know who you are. Put simply,发酵鳕鱼肝油超出了你 - 即使在胶囊形式中服用。
Or, perhaps you’ve read up on近年来的争论围绕发酵鳕鱼肝油的假定的健康益处，不再需要接受它。
Nutritional Benefits of Cod Liver Oil
- It’s a fish oil, so it’s asource of Omega-3s。
While there’s no single supplement that can claim to have the same balance of omega-3s and vitamins A, D, & K-2,我相信，通过明智地应用补充组合，我们至少可以知道我们拥有我们的基地。
Instead of Cod Liver Oil #1: Krill Oil with Astaxanthin
不像cod liver oil, Krill Oil is actually sustainable (see:Why I started taking Krill Oil with Astaxanthin). It’s also rich in phospholipid Omega-3′s and naturally non-toxic (no heavy metal worries here!)
Unfortunately, krill oil is just a “fish” oil and does not have the added benefit of being from an organ. Therefore, it’s not a rich source of vitamins A, D, and K-2. For those, we’ll need to look elsewhere.
Instead of Cod Liver Oil #2: Dessicated Liver Capsules
Liver is a traditional superfood, and extraordinarily rich in B vitamins, folate and vitamin A. If you’re not eating liver twice per week (or taking a daily dose of cod liver oil), then it’s a good idea to supplement with raw, dessicated liver capsules.
These babies are tasteless, easy to swallow, and really good for you (particularly when made from the liver of grass-fed cows).
Now all you’re missing a great source of vitamins D and K-2.
Instead of Cod Liver Oil #3: High Vitamin Butter Oil
While HVBO is more palatable than fermented cod liver oil, it’s still hard for some people to swallow.
So, if you’re like me and prefer taking pills to swallowing oil, then this is what I recommend:
而不是Cod肝脏油＃4：维生素D3 + K2
Put as simply as possible, I believe that from the list above, you can take either one of these combinations and have your non-cod-liver-oil bases covered:
- Krill Oil with Astaxanthin, Dessicated Liver Caps, Max Absorption Vitamin D3 + K2 in MCT Oil.
Now, is any of this endorsed by the Weston A Price Foundation? No. I’m just telling you what my family’s done as we’ve journeyed through years of trying (and failing!) to take our cod liver oil.
Hope it helps!
