Make sure your pills are brown, not yellow!
I have taken the butter oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil blend for nearly a year. It greatly helped me get over several issues that were lingering from being pregnant with twins a couple years prior. After about a month of taking it, a dry skin type rash on my hand disappeared, and I had much better focus/more brain power. I recently ran out right before moving across the country and decided not to reorder and see if I noticed any difference, as I have been eating well and taking other supplements. Well, after a week of not taking the supplement, I started having issues with my vision (blurry vision), about 3 weeks and my skin is VERY dry, regardless of how much lotion I put on it. I didn’t notice too much of a difference in other areas. But the blurry vision and dry skin were enough to get me to order more.I love purchasing from Amazon and rarely have issues… However, when I received this item, the color of the pills was not right. They were bright yellow and I remembered the ones I took before were brown in color. The bottle was correct, my order was correct, just the pills were not correct. They looked like they only contained butter oil and no cod liver oil. I tried to contact the company to verify the color, but was only able to contact Amazon, who gave me a refund. I reordered the item, but then was sent a completely random item by mistake. Due to my frustration with ordering this item through Amazon (though their customer service is always fantastic), I ordered directly through Green Pasture instead (it’s cheaper). When I received the product (today), I immediately checked the pills and they were the same familiar brown color that I remember.**SO PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR PILLS ARE BROWN. If they are yellow, it’s not the right product. I am going to upload a picture to hopefully help others avoid receiving the wrong item, like I did.***
Got rid of keratosis pilaris on upper arms
I’ve had those tiny little bumps on the skin of my upper arms for as long as I can remember, and relied on lots of exfoliating and lotion to have smooth skin all this time.But after reading about this product on The Healthy Home Economist’s site (and how it fights tooth decay and more), and then again on Hunt Gather Love, where she talked about it as a cure for those little upper-arm bumps that 60% of us have, I decided it was time to give it a try, despite my dislike of fish oil capsules and their horrible, horrible flavor.Well, it tastes every bit as unpleasant as a capsule can, though I don’t notice many fishy burps as others have stated they experienced with cheaper brands. But this, combined with fresh carrot juice for a week (for added vitamin A), totally got rid of those upper-arm bumps for the first time in years! It made me realize that I probably have a vitamin deficiency after years of eating anti-nutrients in the form of grains and legumes.My partner was shocked to see the actual results from taking the pills, and began taking them too. Even though he’s less steady than I am, he noticed that his skin felt smoother within a few days, too.Because it’s expensive, we alternate this stuff with other fish oil pills that are cheaper, so we at least get our healthy omega oils each day. But this stuff is definitely worth incorporating into your diet. In the past two months, I’ve noticed my hair is growing out glossier, and my nails are significantly stronger – I can’t bend them the way I used to. I think Dr Price must have been on to something with the combo of fish and high-vitamin butter oil, as I’ve seen surprisingly good results in such a short period of time.
This is my first time trying this product. I am not bothered by the smell or taste. It is very faint. I wish it were more economical as you must take 8 caps as an adult in order to get the full dose. I have been taking it for about 2 weeks now and I take about 4 pills per day. Heard many good things about this product and look forward to receiving its benefits.Update: 12/18/2011I looked at a tooth last night after I wrote this review which had a small cavity in it and it appears that it is healing.
