“Healthy cultures relied on traditional wisdom”
For the Vikings of Northern Norway, the liver oil of the Atlantic Cod (Gadus Morhua) was held in high regard due to its tremendous powers of healing. The old sailors would rub the oil on their sore muscles and joints for relief. European infirmaries and apothecaries of the 1700’s and 1800’s reported amazing cures using cod liver oil from the Atlantic Cod. Mølje, an ancestral dish of Atlantic Cod filets along with the roe, livers and liver oil, were combined for a meal that helped Norwegians stay strong and ward off illness during the long dark winter months. Other fish species contain vitamin A and D plus Omega 3 fatty acids, but none of them possess the documented health claims attributed to cod liver oil from the Atlantic Cod.
Rosita Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO) is produced in small batches from wild cod (Gadus morhua) sustainably harvested from the pristine waters of Norway. An exclusive cold-process artisan method extracts the oil and preserves the delicate nutrients that are naturally present in wild cod livers. The resultant oil is as pure and authentic as it was for our Nordic ancestors hundreds of years ago.
There is a small amount of rosemary oil and vitamin E in the form of mixed tocopherols. The vitamin E is a full spectrum vitamin containing alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols. The source of vitamin E is a non-GMO Sunflower extract from Denmark.
