Description

Armorica Fermented Cod Liver Oil is produced through the carefully controlled cold lacto-fermentation of cod livers, exclusively sourced from Atlantic Cod (Gadus Morhua) caught in the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Extracting cod liver oil through fermentation avoids the need for any heat treatment or chemicals, and preserves all the naturally occurring nutrients.

As a result, the oil is rich in a range of naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A & D, and a wide variety of other nutrients. We have added a small amount of Organic Sicilian Lemon Oil to the oil to make it more palatable and to help prevent repeating flavors of the oil. The lemon oil is pressed from organic lemons grown in Sicily and is not an artificial flavour.

A Traditional & Natural Cod Liver Oil

For thousands of years, cod liver oil was produced in Northern European countries through fermentation and was widely recognised for its exceptional health benefits. Production of cod liver oil changed dramatically in the 1900’s with the introduction of mass production machinery and a desire to produce a product quickly and cheaply. However, this was done at the expense of the quality of the oil as it removed many nutrients and altered others.

Armorica has reproduced the natural conditions for cod liver oil extraction, with only a few minor changes, such as fermentation in a completely oxygen-free environment, which prevents any oxidation of omega-3 fatty acids (and wouldn’t have been possible historically). The resulting oil is rich in all the naturally occurring nutrients that cod liver oil is famous for, and, unlike conventional cod liver oils, doesn’t have synthetic vitamins added to the oil.

Not only is the oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and vitamin A, but it contains vitamin co-factors, which support the utilisation of the vitamins in the body, and a range of other nutrients that are often removed, such as vitamin K.

  1. Marcus

    Flavour is really good and works well with the cod liver oil. No repeating fishy flavours!

  2. D.H

    Amazing, even my husband takes it!

  3. Cee Cee

    have been taking this for a few weeks and my skin is looking much healthier. Flavour is good, but it is still oily (obviously), so it isn’t particularly enjoyable to take…but things that are good for our rarely taste fantastic. at least the lemon flavour helps cover up the taste of fish.

  4. Raw food eater

    Love the product and the flavour of it. Amazing health benefits and I love that all the nutrients are natural. I was shocked to find out how ‘generic’ cod liver oils are made and marketed. Shameful, but it is to be expected when nutrition is systematically removed from food for the sake of shelf life or ease of production. Thank you very much.

    don’t like the oily mouth feel :/ sorry

  6. Chuck

    Very happy with this purchase. My elderly Mother says it reminds her of her childhood. Everyone has been pleasantly surprised by the flavour. I suspect calling it ‘fermented’ puts people off a bit, but it is actually quite nice.

  7. Dolly

    Being at the age I need to think more about my bone health I always take cod liver oil for vitamin D. I’ll admit I do not know everything about cod liver oil, but I do gravitate to the idea that the natural cod liver oils that contain the vitamin metabolites, etc should be healthier than the heavily filtered cod liver oil. I find the taste of this oil to be quite pleasant, but I also do not mind natural cod liver oil flavour. I know some people hate the stuff. If you don’t like the taste of cod liver oil, the lemon flavour may not be enough to cover it up. It is still cod liver oil, after all.

    As for quality, I cannot really say, as I’ve been taking it for only a few days. However, the oil is beautiful and rich-looking (some oils look very pale), so I am quite happy with it.

  8. Chris

    Hard to comment on the quality, but looks good and tastes like the real thing.

  9. Thera

    Thrilled to find somewhere in the UK making this!

  10. Paleo

    Perfect addition to my paleo diet.

  11. Inger

    This oil is really fantastic in how it has been treated to preserve the precious oil but also to keep the natural A and D vitamins and even producing more of them by the fermentation process! I am so glad to have found such a top quality cod liver oil.
