Blue Ice Royal is a nutrient dense blend of 1/3 X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil and 2/3 Blue Ice Fermented Cod-liver Oil. The blend was inspired by Dr Weston A Price – a dentist, Nutritional Medicine researcher and pioneer, and author of ‘Nutrition and Physical Degeneration’.
This is the best combination of two health boosting ingredients and contains very concentrated levels of vitamins. The Blue Ice Fermented Cod-liver Oil is lacto-fermented and extracted without heat. The fish are wild caught in the Arctic region. X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil is made from dairy oil extracted without heat from cows that eat 100% rapidly growing grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil.
The combination of these attributes provides a pure, clean, and nutrient rich food. Dr Price found that combining butter oil and cod-liver oil enhances the effectiveness of this super food. He stated that “one without the other did not do my patients justice, but the two together worked like magic”. This may be in part due to the fact that grass-fed butter is one of the few foods to contain Vitamin K2, which enhances the absorption of Vitamin D, and works synergistically with other nutrients.
Green Pasture uses a cold process extraction and cleaning method followed by lacto-fermentation to produce this pristine and naturally fresh cod-liver oil. Blue Ice Fermented Cod-liver Oil is batch processed and independently tested to international purity standards. Fermentation increases the level of quinines by 700-1600%. Quinones include vitamins E, K, coenzyme Q10, and many other beneficial compounds. To the best of our knowledge Green Pasture is the only brand of cod-liver oil that uses lacto-fermentation, rather than harsh cleaning and deodorizing using heat and chemicals, and only the natural vitamins that come from the fish. Many other brands of cod-liver oil are processed to remove all the vitamins A and D and then non-fish (lanolin) or synthetic vitamins A and D added back in. These synthetic versions of A and D are not easily absorbed by the human body and, in synthetic form, vitamin A can even be toxic.
As a world-renowned dentist, Dr Price discovered that Cod-liver oil reduces the risk of dental caries. Dr Price used extracts from grass-fed butter (activator X), in combination with high-vitamin cod-liver oil (A and D), to prevent and reverse dental cavities in many of his patients. The book ‘Nutrition and Physical Degeneration’ contains X-rays of case studies showing re-calcification of severe cavities using this combination. This is particularly pertinent to many people with eating disorders. Common binge-purge behaviours readily cause dental caries and erode enamel. Enamel is the most mineralized substance in the human body. It is made up of mostly calcium and phosphate. Vitamin D is important for increasing the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the food you eat. Increasing the absorption of calcium and phosphate can improve the strength of your teeth and their ability to fight demineralization from bacteria. Vitamin D increases the amount of good antimicrobial proteins in your body which help to fight the bacteria that cause dental caries. In addition, vitamin D helps form dentin and enamel in teeth. A 2013 review from the USA found that taking vitamin D supplements resulted in a 47% reduced rate of dental caries.
