I regularly use virgin coconut oil in my cooking and as a supplement. I also use cod liver oil. For some years, I have a love-hate relationship with fermented cod liver oil because my vitamin D levels plummeted at one point while I was taking it even though it is supposed to be much higher in vitamin D than regular cod liver oil. It is unclear if this has to do with the cod liver oil preparation itself or a reaction to stress from a car accident which made it difficult for me to metabolize a lot of foods for some time. Of course, the corner of the planet where I live gets very little sunlight year round, which could have EVERYTHING to do with this as well. However, I still prefer it to other brands because it is the only one I know of that assures it is 100% derived from cod livers versus other brands which are reputed to be a melange of various vegetable oils and synthetic vitamins.
You can get both Green Pastures cod liver oil and Tropical Traditions coconut oil at Amazon. I also purchase supplements and certain non-toxic household products, nut butters etc from Vitacost from time to time. You can check out their selection here and get $10 off of your first order.
