Cod Liver Oil: A Surprising Secret to a Sexy Smile and Gorgeous Skin

THE INCREDIBLE BEAUTY BENEFITS OF COD LIVER OIL

The best beauty product on the market may not actually be a beauty product.

Let me introduce you to fermented cod liver oil. Packed full of vitamins A (the active form) and D, this little fishy powerhouse can not only transform skin in a matter of weeks, it also strengthens your teeth for a beautiful, healthy smile that will make you look and feel young and sexy!

SMOOTH, SOFT SKIN

The vitamin A and B levels found in traditionally processed fermented cod liver oil help heal troubled skin from the inside out, while its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids keep the outer layers of skin strong, creating a barrier against environmental toxins.

Since your skin is so porous, this is crucial not only for your skin’s health, but also for the rest of your body.

VITAMIN A

Vitamin A is powerful ally in the fight against damage caused by free radicals. What do free radicals have to do with your skin? An overabundance of free radicals can cause these dermatological problems:

  • Wrinkles (one of the most obvious signs of premature ageing)
  • Acne-inducing inflammation
  • Cancerous or precancerous lesions
  • Rosacea
  • And more!

The antioxidant power of Vitamin A has long been proven to improve skin conditions by preventing the oxidation process initiated by free radicals.

Lack of vitamin A in the diet can also lead to dry, flaky skin. By taking a fermented cod liver oil supplement, you can return that reptile skin to its natural, soft, supple state by boosting the body’s levels of vitamin A—an essential nutrient for maintaining the outer layers of skin.

VITAMIN D

Most people in the developed world don’t get enough vitamin D because we’re stuck inside for most of the day—especially in the winter months! Vitamin D has been studied as a healing treatment for a number of skin issues, including psoriasis and acne.

Psoriasis is a condition that results in patches of rough, irritated patches of skin that can often be itchy and bothersome. This skin condition is often associated with a poor immune system, but can also be caused by a lack of vitamin D. One dose of cod liver oil gives you more than the recommended daily dose of this essential skin-building vitamin.

Oh, and you thought acne was just a hormonal teenager thing, but now you’re an adult and you can’t seem to get rid of it? Low levels of vitamin D can increase oil production in your skin cells, leading to acne outbreaks. Increasing your intake of this essential vitamin can clear up acne within weeks!

However, here’s a word of caution: You can overdose on D—especially during the summer months, so cut back your dosage when you’re spending tons of time in sun!

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

Most of us don’t get enough of these healthy fatty acids in our regular diet, which is too bad, because they are absolutely essential for healthy skin, hair, and scalp. If your skin is dry, cracked, and flaky, it might be because your body is unable to regulate its oil production in the absence of enough Omega-3 fatty acids.

A lack of omega-3s can also block the release of collagen-destroying enzymes, which helps prevent the leathery, wrinkled skin that often accompanies sun damage. Not to mention that omega-3s aid in healing skin conditions like psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema.

The best source of omega-3 fatty acids is fish—like salmon, mackerel, whitefish, and cod– but oils are the most concentrated source. So, even if you’re eating fresh fish a few times a week, taking fish oil or cod liver oil is an important source for this essential fatty acid.

SEXY SMILE

What’s the first thing you notice about someone? It’s very likely to be their smile! When your teeth are strong and white, you feel more confident, and that shines through in your entire demeanor. Surprisingly, fermented cod liver oil can help you gain or maintain that vibrant, sexy smile.

How fermented cod liver oil gives you a sexy smile:

  • Vitamin A- contributes to healthy gums, preventing gum disease and strengthening the protective wall around the root
  • Vitamin D- strengthens the jaw bone, helping prevent tooth loss normally associated with aging
  • Omega -3 fatty acids- help align teeth (yes, straighten them without braces)
  • These fat soluble vitamins remineralize cavitation. That means “heal cavities!”

According to the extensive research conducted by maverick dentist Weston A. Price, and continued by his colleagues, including those at the Weston A. Price Foundation and others like Ramiel Nagel (author of Cure Tooth Decay) the vitamins found in traditionally-extracted fermented cod liver oil are a powerful aid in preventing and curing tooth decay, strengthening enamel, and straightening your teeth.

TAKING FERMENTED COD LIVER OIL

Before you run out to the drug store and buy up a bottle of cod liver oil, please take note that not all cod liver oil is created equally.

The modern extraction methods (heat and chemicals) used by most of the big supplement manufacturers destroy the vitamin D content, then they add in a small amount of synthetic vitamin D to compensate. This doesn’t cut it.

This upsets the balance of vitamin A to vitamin D. You need a traditionally extracted, wild cod liver oil. Here are a few of our favorite supplements for Omega fish oils:

In order to get the proper absorption of vitamins and nutrients, you can take your cod liver oil with a small serving of grass-fed butter. Since the vitamins in the cod liver oil are fat-soluble, the butter will make them immediately bioavailable. The grass-fed butter also contains what Weston Price refers to as “Activator X,” now known as vitamin K2. Vitamins A and D trigger the production of certain proteins, and vitamin K2 activates them!

You can buy your cod liver oil in liquid form (which some people find hard to swallow), flavored liquid (a little more palatable) or capsule.

A NOTE OF CAUTION:

Consult your doctor before taking cod liver oil if you are pregnant or nursing, have a liver or kidney disorder, heart disease, or are taking prescription medication. In order to avoid overdose of vitamin D, decrease your cod liver oil dosage during the months that you absorb a lot of sunlight (or switch to fish oil during those months). Whenever starting a new supplement, read all of the package materials and follow the weight-appropriate dosage.

Cod liver oil has been utilized for decades as a cure-all for everything from arthritis to kidney disease and diabetes. Its nutritive properties are powerful. Adding cod liver oil, either fermented or traditionally extracted, will heal you from the inside out, resulting in a healthy body, smoother skin– and a bright, sexy smile!

  • Kyle says:

    Would the heat from coffee destroy any of the vitamins or nutrients in the cod liver oil? I am new to taking cod liver oil and thinking of adding it to my bulletproof coffee (grass-fed butter) in the mornings. Or would it be a safer bet to just take it before the coffee in either capsule or liquid form?

    I’m new to your website & podcasts and loving all the info you provide!!!

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    • Tanya says:

      You should NOT add cod liver oil or any fish oil to your coffee (unless it is cold). Omega-3 fatty acids in oil form are too fragile for heat. That is why, you never heat flax seed oil either. Green Pastures Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil [FCLO] – Cinnamon Tingle is not bad tasting. They also sell a blend of butter oil and FCLO. Be well!

      • Tanya says:

        Please correct article to say vitamin D not Vitamin B in the earlier part of the article. This will confuse those not familiar with cod liver oil.

      • Abel James says:

        Tanya is right! Cod liver oil and coffee don’t agree with each other – and you don’t want to expose the Omega 3’s to high heat. Cheers!

    • Mindy says:

      Not only will the heat destroy the nutrients, your coffee will taste NASTY!

  • Alex says:

    Could please anyone hint me how to get all the Fat-Burning Man podcasts? I see only 40 of them in iTunes.

  • Leslie says:

    I used to take FCLO from Green Pastures, but then I read Dr. Mercola’s article about krill oil being a superior and safer alternative due to the toxins which accumulate in larger fish species (particularly the organs). I’ve tried both FCLO and krill, and Dr. Mercola’s perspective seems to make sense, particularly as krill are so tiny and not anywhere as likely to store toxins. Still not sure though. Any thoughts on this topic?

  • Tim says:

    Love the article, but if Cod Liver Oil is oil, which is 100% fat, why does one need to take it with any other fat to make it bio-available?

    Thanks.

  • Rachelle says:

    Cod liver oil is a perfect food it shouldn’t have to be taken with any other oil but that probably depends on howxmuch you take…the theory is this I believe you need like 10 fat grams to stimulate the gallbladder to release bile, since bile is a liquid fat it absorbs fat as well so it it necessary in the proper absorption of the vitamins, thus is why people with gallbladder or bile disorders are typicalky lacking in fat soluble vitamins.

  • Erin says:

    Are there any benefits of putting Krill oil straight on your face?

  • Henry says:

    Can Cod liver oil help reduce high liver enzymes (AST & ALT) ?
