Supplements are so important to a well-rounded diet! I share my family's options and why we take cod liver oil (and why YOU should).

The alarm goes off, the sleepy children are woken up by mama, they crawl out of bed. Sleepiness moves into routine…beds are made, young bodies get dressed, hair is combed, lunches put in backpacks…

Amidst the morning flurry, a certain bottle of amber liquid comes out of the cupboard.

This amber liquid will come out most mornings – from early fall, through the frigid white mornings of winter, and well into spring when the bears are past crawling out of their hiding places.

What is this amber liquid that mothers have been giving their kiddos for centuries?

Cod liver oil!

Let me tell you why we take cod liver oil.

Though there are many beneficial factors in cod liver, both studied and unstudied, I want to focus on the fat soluble vitamins A & D. Next to sunshine, high quality cod liver oil is the best natural source of Vitamin D.

It is also an excellent source of Vitamin A, in a form that is easy for the body to absorb and use.

Cod liver oil is both food and medicine! I recommend Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil to all my clients and GAPS Class participants.

Cod liver oil is also one of the most important supplements in the GAPS Protocol, helpful for healing the digestive tract as well as the rest of the body. For information about registering for a class on GAPS -> click here.

So why are Vitamin A & D so important?
