Has anyone tried this brand? I'm used to Carlson, but there is a woman my grandmom met at work that said she will give us free cod liver oil (liquid and pills) the brand she is giving us is Nordic naturals. Yes I know the capsules have gelatin. My grandmom wants the capsules. I'm going to be taking the liquid.

Shawn C,

It sounds really great according to their website. I wish someone would offer to give me some for free :-) Will you get to pick the flavor you want?

From my knowledge she is just going to bring some in, but I think my grandmom can call and talk to her.

Okay, she doesn't have her number, so I have no clue what kind she is bringing in. I looked on the site and the flavored ones have sesame oil in them. Could that cause a Problem?

My grandmom said she is bring in a bottle that is $70. I didn't see one like that on the site, but I did see ones that are $42 that are orange and strawberry flavored in 473 (16oz).
Orange Flavor
Ingredients: purified arctic cod liver oil, d-alpha tocopherol, natural orange flavor, rosemary extract

One Teaspoon Contains:
EPA: 410 mg
DHA: 625 mg
Other Omega-3s: 225 mg
Vitamin A: 650–1500 IU
Vitamin D: 1–20 IU
Vitamin E: 30 IU

Strawberry Flavor
Ingredients: purified arctic cod liver oil, d-alpha tocopherol, natural strawberry flavor, rosemary extract

One Teaspoon Contains:
EPA: 410 mg
DHA: 625 mg
Other Omega-3s: 225 mg
Vitamin A: 650–1500 IU
Vitamin D: 1–20 IU
Vitamin E: 30 IU

These don't appear to have sesame oil although some of the other flavors do.

I don't see a problem with sesame oil, I use an organic sesame oil for stir fry. However, I personally avoid all natural flavors. I also avoid any type of supplement sold in a bottle unless my life depended on it. I get sick after a few weeks from supplements so I look for natural sources if at all possible.

If you take these, just watch carefully for reactions, even after several weeks. Good luck!

I have had wonderful success with Carlson cod liver oil that has "natural lemon flavor" I do find with that and I have read good things about Carlson on this forum. I don't know about natural orange flavor or strawberry though.

Shawn C,

I'll bet you would be ok with natural lemon or strawberry flavor and sesame oil should also be ok. All you can do is try whatever she gives you and see.

I did fine with the lemon flavor one, at least so far. Taste wise however the Carlson is superior, but this was free so.

I just read it said that the vitamin E comes from soybean oil. GREAT! I've only had it twice.

Here's their response to sensitivity to soy. http://www.nordicnaturals.com/en/Search_Results/My_Search/261/

"If a person is sensitive to soy, can they take fish oils that contain vitamin E?

Vitamin E is an important addition for fish oil because it helps preserve fish oil freshness (along with other important manufacturing factors). Fish oils, like all liquid oils, are subject to becoming oxidized, and vitamin E is a very effective and natural antioxidant (for fish oil and for people!). Most of the time, people with sensitivities to soy can consume vitamin E without worry, even if it's originally derived from soy. Vitamin E is an oil (a fat-soluble vitamin) and, for supplements, is purified to be 100% pure vitamin E—no protein components [note: the allergen in a food is usually the protein (e.g. gluten in wheat, casein in milk)]. It is always a good idea to consult with your healthcare practitioner before beginning a supplement regime."

All I can suggest is that you try it and if you don't react, finish it until it's gone then maybe buy another one that doesn't contain soy.

Do you think Carlson's band has vitamin E extracted from soy? If so then I should do ok with Nordic naturals because I do great with Carlson's brand.

I am doing fine with the cod liver oil. I found out Carlson gets it's vitamin e from soy as well. Like I said though if you want cod liver that taste good get Carlson's brand. This brand taste yucky, but at least I have no negative reactions with it so I can't complain.

I read somewhere that all the unfermented cod liver oils will soon be adding synthetic vitamins A & D since they strip out the natural in the cooking process. Check out Blue Ice (http://www.drrons.com/blue-ice-high-vitamin-cod-liver-oil-intro.htm). I am taking the fermented Blue Ice unflavored and have had no reactions. I am very sensitive so I avoid any flavorings but I took a chance on the fermented vs. unfermented because the added health benefits are so great. I have been very happy with everything I got from Dr. Ron since they give detailed descriptions of the ingredients and processing of the products.

Originally, I thought I was sensitive to Soy (based on my bad reaction to hydroylzed soy protein - before I put 2+2+2 together, and understood MSG / free glutamic acid).

I contact every manufacturer I could think of, and they all used soy derived vit. e as a preservative.

If you find any that don't, please let us know.

Thanks,
Mike
