My Cod Liver Oil Cure

With my grandmother’s urging I headed out this week in search of cod liver oil. I don’t know if the claims are true but cod liver oil seems to be the cure for quite a few ailments including arthritis and muscle pain. (Of course, I also found negative articles including cases of vitamin toxicity.)

The average small bottle of oil cost $6.00 – $8.00. But thanks to Elizabeth’s comment on a previous post I decided to spend the extra money on lemon flavored cod liver oil, which is much more palatable.

I found an 8.4 ounce bottle of the good stuff for $14.19 at MOM’s (My Organic Market). There are a number of MOM’s stores around the Washington, DC area. I also found the product online at the Vitamin Shoppe for $10.54 plus $2.99 shipping.

Even though it’s lemon flavored, cod liver oil still isn’t the most pleasant substance to suck down in the morning. I found it’s easiest to take a spoon full in between spoonfuls of yogurt.

There are 50 servings in a bottle, so in a little less than two months I should have an indication of whether or not it’s easing my symptoms. I’ll write a follow up post when I finish the bottle.

Thanks for all of your comments on the previous post and your support.

  1. Try cinnamon flavored cod liver oil. My daughter uses it and her kids line up to take it. Sorry, I haven’t tried it myself, but they say it is good.

  2. My aunt says that her hair is much fuller when she takes her cod liver oil every day and it helps my dad’s ears when he takes his. Yet I still won’t take it. šŸ™‚
