  • Kirkman® offers cod liver oil with vitamins A and D in a flavored liquid. Kirkman’s Cod Liver Oil is an excellent product that we believe is superior to most similar products in the marketplace.

    All versions of our cod liver oil products contain all natural vitamins A and D. No synthetic standardization has occurred. In addition‚ our oil has been vacuum-dried and deodorized‚ plus it has gone through a filtration and distillation process to remove heavy metals‚ pesticides and PCBs. A complete analysis of the oil has verified the absence of these compounds to detectable limits. Results of these analyses are available on request.

    Cod liver oil is being used in children's health based on the findings of Dr. Mary Megson of Richmond‚ Virginia to help support vitamin A absorption. Cod liver oil contains 10% of the cis form of vitamin A‚ as well as "14 hydroxyretroretinol." Dr. Megson has found that these natural forms of vitamin A in cod liver oil stimulate retinoid receptors.

    It is important when using cod liver oil to be extremely careful in selecting a source. Many cod liver oils available in traditional outlets are standardized with synthetic vitamin A palmitate. Furthermore‚ much of the oil available can be contaminated or contain elevated levels of heavy metals‚ pesticides or PCBs. It is also critical to ensure that cod liver oil is stable and does not turn rancid.

    Cod liver oil can become rancid over time from exposure to air and heat by autoxidation. When this occurs‚ peroxides develop in the oil. Kirkman® adds vitamin E to our cod liver oil to stop any potential oxidation process. In addition‚ a peroxide test is performed on the oil to ensure a value that will assure freshness. The European Pharmacopeia allows up to 10.0 millequivalents/kilogram of peroxides in cod liver oil to be considered fresh and non-rancid. Kirkman's product has a typical peroxide value of only 2.9 mEq/kg.

    Other properties of natural cod liver oil

    Fish oils are generally a source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Cod liver oil is no exception. Each ½ teaspoon of Kirkman’s cod liver oil contains 250 mg. of EPA and 250 mg. of DHA. Each of Kirkman’s cod liver oil gelcaps contains 50 mg. each of EPA and DHA.

    Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be important in normal development‚ cardiovascular health‚ and in neurological health. Many of the doctors with whom Kirkman® works recommend supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids. A laboratory profile of fatty acids is often done to determine which type of product is required.

    Forms of Kirkman’s cod liver oil

    Kirkman® offers Cod Liver Oil in both soft gelatin capsule form and in a liquid. Both forms have the same purified oil. The liquid is also available in an unflavored version.

    Great Formulation

    Cod Liver Oil Liquid was prescribed by our sons developmental pediatrician. He has ASD. Great formulation without vitamins that he gets in other supplements. Lemon lime flavor allows us to place it in smoothies for minimal detection. Great price and availability of a quality product from Pureformulas.com. Will continue to order.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    This stuff is great!

    I purchased Cod Liver Oil Liquid because I recently read about the benefits of Cod Liver Oil and wanted to try it out for myself. I have been taking it for about 2 weeks now. I started off with 1/2 tsp as recommended by the bottle and I put the oil in a shot glass of juice and drank it like a shot. It smells like lemon/lime and I have only tasted it with juice but I cannot taste anything bad there is no odor and it is really easy going down when you drink it with something rather than just with a spoon. I have upped my dosage to about a full tsp now that my body is used to it. I havent had any problems with it so far and I really like this brand. Like I said there is no fishy smell or taste and I may get the un-flavored version next time I purchase this. It is a decent size but I will go through it quick as I take a tsp every day. I would recommend this brand as it seems to be one of the few that keeps the oil as natural as possible as it says that no synthetic vitamins are added only the natural ones already in the oil. I like that the flavoring is just lemon/lime oils with no artificial colors/flavors.

    Pros

      No fishy smell no fishy taste natural decent amount of product good brand

    Cons

      have no complaints/problems with this product

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Helps with Autistic Stims

    When my son was diagnosed with autism one of the first things that I put him on was Kirkmans CLO along with Super Nu Thera w/o Vit A and D. We saw immediate results - with his stims abating particularly spinning and head banging. We have since done many Biomed treatments but CLO was definitely the first that I read about and when we saw that it helped we decided to pursue additional Biomed treatments. The Lemon Lime is more expensive than the straight CLO but makes it much more palatable. I definitely recommend trying it.

    Pros

      Better taste than straight CLO Bottle lasts a long time

    Cons

      nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
