Green Pasture Products manufacture sacred foods in O'Neill Nebraska USA with extraordinary care and make only small boutique batches in a nutraceutical facility.
This business is a family run by Dave and Barbara Wetzel who have prepared the extracted Cod Liver Oil with great care and concern and with no additives. The fermentation process of this raw and unadulterated food is a natural enzymatic and microbial action that releases the oil from the livers.
The produced fermented cod liver oil comes from the prolonged soaking of wild cod livers in brine, which allows cod livers to naturally ferment; the oil accumulates on top and is carefully collected. Most commercial cod liver oil manufacturing is highly industrialised and Green Pasture chooses traditional methods of production.
Fermentation is an ancient practice still used worldwide to safely preserve a variety of foods, including meat and fish. Producing cod liver oil through fermentation and gentle extraction may go as far back as biblical times and has been used to prepare and preserve food and medicine since the first written word. Using fish livers for medicine has deep historical significance in human medicinal history

The inspiration for making this product was acquired from listening to Sally Fallon Morell talk at a lecture in about 2002 about a dentist named Dr Weston A Price who published his discoveries in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration after travelling the world to visit uncivilised cultures in the 1920 and 30s.

Some customers prefer to have the product in Capsules rather than the Gel product or the oil product.
Long term customers advise that they take varying amounts and you should consult your health professional for advice on this matter.
Some customers who we have spoken to advise from consultation with their health care professional and from personal experience to decrease intake of Vitamin D during peak summer times if they are spending a lot of time in the sun. They also advise in the peak of the sick season they may increase servings of this product to assist them at times they are sick or are near sickness.
There are many naturally occurring metabolites and cofactors that make the issue of measuring natural nutrients difficult in fermented oils. We do know that historical cultures liberally consumed these sacred foods to great benefit without today’s standardization of knowledge.
