As always we have been working hard behind the scenes. After almost a year of development, we are really excited to announce our latest product- Fortified Fermented Cod Liver Oil.
What is Fortified Fermented Cod Liver Oil?
Fortified fermented cod liver oil is a blend of our Fermented Cod Liver Oil with natto. Natto is a fermented product, much like our cod liver oil, and is the richest natural source of vitamin K2 (MK-7). It is a fantastic companion to our cod liver oil. So we decided to work on combining the two products into one ‘super’ product. The final product really is something we are proud of.
One serving provides over 100% of the NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) for vitamin A, vitamin D3, and vitamin K2, and also includes a wide range of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.
What is so important about Natto/ Vitamin K2?
Natto is produced by fermenting soybeans. Like many fermented foods, it has a somewhat acquired taste and texture, but it has been eaten in Japanese cuisine for many years.
Natto is the richest natural source of vitamin K2 (MK-7), which is the most biologically active form of vitamin K. Vitamin K2 often doesn’t get a large amount of media attention, but it is a very important vitamin and is involved in a lot of functions in the body. It is best known for its role in bone health, and works directly with vitamin D3 to maintain healthy and strong bones.
In addition to this, vitamin K2 plays an important role in the cardiovascular system and the immune system because of its roles in regulating inflammation and wound healing/ blood clotting.
A Match Made in Heaven?
A fermented food that improves bone, cardiovascular, and immune system health. Sound at all familiar? Well, it should – fermented cod liver oil and natto truly are a match made in heaven. The nutrients they contain are remarkably synergistic. The vitamin D3 from the fermented cod liver oil works with vitamin K2 from natto to support bone health and the immune system. The omega-3 fats from fermented cod liver oil work with vitamin K2 to support the cardiovascular system.
Fortified Fermented Cod Liver Oil
So here it is. A rich and natural source of important fats and vitamins. We’ve flavoured the oil with some natural mint oil to make the blend more palatable and help fight repeating flavours. We think it tastes fantastic!
