    Cod Liver Oil

    Primal Fuel
    I hear alot about taking CLO if you eat alot of factory raised beef as opposed to grass fed/grass finished. What exactly is the CLO doing to counter act the factory raised beef? I know it has something to do with the Omega 3 to 6 ratio?? The PUFAS?? Does this sound right? I was doing some reading over at PaNu and couldnt find out why the CLO is beneficial when eating the factory raised beef. Also, is CLO better then the regular Fish Oil? Thanks peeps!

    Cod liver oil or any fish oil is used to try to balance the omega 3's & 6's. We typically eat too much omega 6's, so we take fish oil to keep those numbers at a healthy level. Cod liver oil, imho, can be really good, but you cannot take too much because it is usually fused with vitamin e to keep the oil from oxidizing and too much vitamin can be bad. But, i think its good stuff. Iv'e been taking it and i like it, i just limit it to one serving a day. Cod liver oil and fish oil are very similar (and are used for the same purposes), i weighed my options and i thought, for my situation, that cod liver oil is the best.

    My only experince of CLO is with my cat who had a bad case of oily coat, plus flaky skin/dandruff last year; we started giving him a teaspoon a day of CLO, and his coat is beautiful now, and no flakes.

    I take it straight up like a man....Lol its actually lemon flavored and does not taste bad at all. The pills do not have a taste, some can taste the fish in their burps and i have experienced that, BUT i believe that is do to oxidation, which is NOT good. I use the Carlson Cod Liver oil.

    cod liver oil has vitamin A and D included in it naturally. Fish oil doesn't... or if it does, it's added separately. They both have the same fat profile afaik. So if you need the vitamins, then cod liver oil is better.
