It’s hard to tell right away when adding something to the routine if it’s working. That is not the case with Carlson’s Cod Liver Oil. If I forget to take it, my skin tells me within a few days. We all hear about fish oil, fish oil, fish oil….so it is hard to know which one to take. A well respect health practitioner, Matia Brizman, who is nothing short of genius, turned me onto Carlson’s. There are SO many supplement companies, but few are registered with the FDA and monitored for standards of purity and potency. This is particularly important when it comes to fish oil, making sure it is free of mercury and other contaminants. To understand the lengths that Carlson’s goes to in order to provide superior supplements, as well as the more important benefits of Cod Liver Oil, such as cancer prevention, you can read an excellent article from Dr. Ben Kim here. However, my area of expertise is beauty and while I can’t tell you what will happen to your heart or joints, I can emphatically say your skin will be noticeably more supple, soft and hydrated if you get on a roll of taking this daily. Carlson’s is an excellent source for high quality supplements which can be found on their website if you can’t find the brand locally.
