    I've heard a lot of older people talk about having to take cod liver oil, so I'm sure it's good! Don't know about the particular brand. But, it also seems like salmon would be a better choice of oils, but I have nothing backing me up on that. Just my humble opinion, probably of no help whatsoever! lol.

    I'm not a fan of Cod Liver Oil (CLO) in general. If you want the Omega 3's, just get purified fish oils that don't have a ton of Vitamin A and a bit of D. Screwing up your A : D ratio with CLO can be bad, especially since most people are deficient in D to begin with.

    TwinLab in particular...can't really comment.

    Yeah I guess I will go for Carlson's fish oil... I am trying to find the purest thing I can, meaning no flavors and no gel capsules. I don't mind the shitty fish taste.

    Carlson's or Nordic Naturals, then...although I'm not sure if NN has an unflavored liquid.

    Don't do it.

    ☐ Do not take cod liver oil - it contains too much Vitamin A in ratio to D and most often
    too little DHA in ratio to EPA
    ☐ Take 1000 IU D3 per 25 lbs body weight per day on days that midday,
    summer, full body, unprotected sun exposure cannot be obtained
    ☐ At all latitudes, Vitamin D deficiency is a problem in our modern world
    unless getting midday, summer, unprotected, full body sun to the point just
    before a burn occurs.
    ☐ Vitamin D Dosing, Levels and Testing information
    http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AV...A0d3BjMw&hl=en
    ☐ Get plenty of vitamin K from animal products, fermented foods, vegetables
    ☐ Get sufficient preformed Vitamin A from food and supplements combined (250-300- not thousand - IU per day),
    or a monthly 10,000 IU dose of preformed A, or eat liver occasionally....monthly is fine.

    There is a significant body of evidence correlating high A intakes and more frequent infections - probably because of it's magnifying effect on D insufficiency (though extreme A deficiency is also a cause of frequent infections).

    Nature supplies us with more DHA than EPA in virtually all foods. Here's a list wrt wild fish:
    http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AV...tta2djag&hl=en

    Consider supplementing with a product that has at least equal DHA:EPA.

    Best,
    Katherine
