Sonne's Cod Liver Oil is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin D, and the
essential fatty acids: linoleic, linolenic, arachidonic,
eicosapentaenoic (EPA), and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids. These nutrients
are critical for normal metabolism, brain and nerve function, and
protecting and building the immune system. EPA and DHA are long-chain,
omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fish and marine mammals that
support a healthy cardiovascular system. Nutritionists recommend
supplementing the diet with a small amount of cod liver oil, especially
during the winter months, to ensure adequate dietary intake of vitamins A
Sonne's Cod Liver Oil No 5
The use of cod liver oil by humans is a very old
practice. It was used by doctors for the first half of the 20th century
as a natural source of fat-soluble nutrients, before it was replaced by
concentrated, synthetic sources. The famous dentist and nutrition
researcher, Dr. Weston A. Price, was able to completely reverse rampant
dental carries (and other physical and mental problems) by providing one
supplemental meal daily, consisting of whole grains, fruit, vegetable
and meat stew, high vitamin butter oil, and cod liver oil (Price, 1939).
His study of 14 primitive races throughout the world demonstrated that
the fat-soluble nutrients were the most rare and valuable elements of
the diet. These same nutrients are essentially depleted from modern
civilized diets. Dr. Price wrote, "There is a misapprehension with
regard to the possibility that humans may obtain enough of the vitamin D
group of activators from our modern plant foods or from sunshine. It
will be noted that vitamin D, which the human does not readily
synthesize in adequate amounts, must be provided by foods of animal
tissues or animal products." A daily dose of Cod Liver Oil will help
ensure a proper, natural supply. This is a daily supplement that can
Sonne's Cod Liver Oil uses fish caught in open
waters in the North Atlantic Ocean – away from sites of industrial
pollution. In order to ensure that our Cod Liver Oil is safe for
consumption, we routinely use an independent laboratory to test for
heavy metals and environmental contaminants (such as organochlorides).
Vitamin D and calcium are needed together for the proper metabolism of both nutrients. We recommend taking #2 CalphoniteTM, a highly bioavailable, liquid calcium supplement, with Cod Liver Oil.
Recommended Dosage: 1 teaspoon daily supplies 80% of the RDA for vitamin A and 100% for vitamin D
For best results, take up to 3 teaspoons daily. Can be taken by the
