You guys know me well enough by now, but just in case:
I prefer whole foods over pill poppin -even healthy supplements. However in our modern planet destroying way we have made some things impossible to get from food.
This week I’m going to start you with…
Fermented Cod Liver Oil
But, stick with me here.
You buy this stuff in capsule form or in liquid. You can get the liquid in flavors, it truly doesn’t taste like fish!!! I’ve had the lemon and the orange. I prefer the lemon so far. I’ve heard the cinnamon is amazing but I just don’t know that I want to drink cinnamon.
Ok, fine it doesn’t taste gross, but really?!
I honestly think everyone should be taking this stuff period. Regardless of reason. I’m here to convince you.
- Modern diets especially the SAD (Standard American Diet) is deficient in Vitamins A, D and K2. These are essential for brain, tissue, nerve and bone health. Seriously. Everything you are.
- Every single cell in your body has a receptor for Vitamin D. That and Thyroid receptors. The only two things that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR CELLS NEEDS!!!
- Our diets have high levels of Omega 6s, but little to no Omega 3s. 6s lead to inflammation -which you savvy readers now know leads to a huge list of diseases including cancers. Omega 3s are among other things, what keeps your brain functioning.
- Back in the day… way back in the day our diets were about 2:1 in favor of Omega 3s, now it’s about 25:1 in favor or Omega 6, that’s a drastic difference!
- K2 among many things is what directs your body to deposit calcium in the right place. With out K2 your body just puts is anywhere, this can include your soft tissue. It’s essential to making a healthy baby. Both mom and dad need ample K2 to make healthy, hearty, eggs and sperm. Mom needs it thru making that baby, birthing and breast feeding. Then to help the hormones stabilize post baby and breast feeding.
- Modern diets lead to depression for many reasons one is the lack of Vitamin D and Omega 3s.
- Many women have PMS, among a million other period/reproductive issues. Lack of D, A, and Omega 3s have all be shown to be effective in treatment.
- Fermented foods are one of the only sources of K2 aside from pastured eggs, grass fed liver, and grass fed butter. -only the best of the best. It’s been shown that factory farmed eggs, chicken and beef are high in Omega 6, with little to no 3s and little to no K2.
- Finally Vitamin D, A, K2 and Omega 3s have all been shown to reduce breast cancer chances. In some cases they reduce inflammation, in others they help balance hormonal levels reducing estrogen based breast cancer.
- These have direct effects on our bodies absorption of iodine which is necessary for the ducts in the lymph system and breast tissue to remain clear. Congestion in these two systems is a big part of breast cancer. Many breast cancers start in the lymphatic system. You’ve heard of women having a lymphectomy first in the fight against breast cancer or at the same time as a mastectomy. That’s because breast cancer often starts in the lymph nodes.
Ok you’ve convinced me. What do I get?
The capsules were on sale! Normally I just the the liquid as I just hate taking pills in general.
