Benefits of cod liver oil, discovered by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS
The popularity of cod liver oil, and the existing extensive body of scientific studies, are directly tied to the legacy of Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS.
Dr. Price traveled the world in the 1930s, studying Indigenous peoples who maintained their traditional diets and compared their dental and overall health with those exposed to modern, processed foods.
Dr. Price found that without exception, those who maintained their traditional diets were healthier than their modernized counterparts. One of his paramount findings was that traditional diets in thriving traditional cultures contained much higher levels of vitamins A and D (and minerals) than the modern diets of the U.S. and Europe that had seeped into the cultures over time.
To address the shortcomings of contemporary diets, he recommended nutritional supplementation with fresh, cold-pressed cod liver oil and avoidance of processed foods.*
Historical benefits of cod liver oil
And, cod liver oil has a long and storied history that even predates Dr. Weston A. Price.
It has traditionally been consumed as part of the diet, particularly by people living in northern coastal areas of Norway. It was crucial to survival, especially the cold, dark and stormy conditions.
Here are some highlights of the beginnings of cod liver oil, according to documents compiled by Price Pottenger (which maintains the entire library of Dr. Weston A. Price's work).
1943-1946: Cod liver oil was recognized for containing vitamins D and A that could support wartime malnutrition in children.* In 1943, Pope Pius XI inquired about the possible procurement of Newfoundland cod liver oil “to be kept at (the Vatican’s) disposal so it can be distributed at the end of the war in those regions where the health conditions of poor children demand it.” Six tons of the oil was then shipped to continental Europe.
1946-1971: Author and journalist Mark Kurlansky reports that during World War II, the British Ministry of Food “provided free cod-liver oil for pregnant and breastfeeding women, children under five, and adults over forty…. The British government, believing that the oil had produced the healthiest children England had ever seen, despite bombings and rationing, continued the program until 1971.”*
Cod liver oil is easy to add to your health regimen
As Dr. Weston A Price recognized, traditional cultures with vibrant health consumed organ meats. Liver was a favorite, as it contains key nutrients that are nearly absent in even the healthiest of modern diets.
Today, many enjoy Rosita Cod Liver Oil because it’s a convenient way to get these special nutrients without having to eat liver.
Rosita comes in liquid and softgels. You can read about cod liver capsules benefits here
A standard dose of cod liver oil liquid is ½ to 1 teaspoon.
Always check with a certified healthcare practitioner before beginning a new supplement. And please remember, Rosita is premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the fresh cod liver oil affects your body and what feels right for you and your family.
