Science Backed Health Benefits of Cod Liver Oil
Cod liver oil contains essential nutrients. It has been used for generations to treat chronic inflammation, prevent rickets, boost bone health, aid in digestion, and feed the brain. Our Fermented Cod Liver Oil contains a natural balance of omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins A & D. These nutrients are readily absorbed and assimilated by your body. When taken regularly, users have reported a variety of oral and overall health benefits.
X-Factor™ Gold Concentrated Butter Oil is pure oil made from milk produced by cows grazing on rapidly growing green grass extracted and concentrated through centrifugation. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all-important factors in making real X-Factor™ Gold Concentrated Butter Oil.
Good Nutrition Leads to Oral Health
Weston A. Price was a pioneer in researching the link between oral health and nutrition. Frequently referred to as “The Isaac Newtown of Nutrition”, he argued that “fat-soluble vitamins have been deficient in practically every case of active tooth decay” and believed that “the combination of cod liver oil and butter oil works synergistically and is more potent when taken together than either one on its own.” Our products were inspired by Dr. Weston A. Price’s discoveries. We are honored to be able to share this whole food combination with the modern world.

Our commitment to quality is our commitment to you!
With the growing trend of fermented food products in America today, you may be familiar with kombucha, kimchi, and Greek yogurt, as they are all advertised as having an incredible impact on gut health and digestion. Another product made using fermentation, which you might not have heard of, is cod liver oil!
Almost lost to history is the ancient traditional method of using fermentation to extract oil from fish and fish visceral. Combining this ancient method with modern standards, we are proud to re-introduce this nutrient rich source of natural vitamins and omega fatty acids. Most ancient and indigenous cultures around the world have used different methods of fermentation to preserve their food and improve its nutritional value for centuries. While the foods that were used vary from culture to culture, the fermentation process itself remains the same. Fermented food mimics digestion from within, aiding the body’s process of absorbing nutrients from whatever else you might eat.
In order to provide the highest quality of nutrients, we ferment our small batches of wild-caught cod to extract the cod liver oil, and we use clabbared milk to make the butter oil. A third party lab tests all of our products at every step of production. They test using FDA guidelines to ensure quality and safety. Our unique methods maintain the food’s fragile components and preserves what’s often lost through industrial processing.
We get our fish exclusively from the Aleutian Islands region of Alaska. The Aleutian culture is more than 2,000 years old, rich in deep-rooted traditions. It both inspires and reminds us to take only what we need and give back what we can. Our new cod and cow illustrations are homage to this culture and their tradition of putting our planet first.
People have been consuming fermented fish products for thousands of years. Learn more about these traditional foods, the different fermented foods people have eaten over the centuries, and what people have thought about it.
