How Rosita Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil aligns with the Wahls Protocol
The following is a blog post from our Wahls Protocol Seminar 2017 sponsor Rosita Real Foods:
Rosita Real Foods USA is excited to be a sponsor of the Wahls Protocol Seminar 2017, and humbled to be part of the vital conversation on helping people with health challenges and autoimmune conditions heal with nutrient-rich foods.
You may know that Dr. Terry Wahls recommends cod liver oil as part of her renowned protocol, given its nutrient content and omega fatty acids.
Dr. Wahls and Rosita share the same philosophy: to obtain essential omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals from food rather than pills. As such, Rosita Real Foods of Norway handcrafts its raw, fresh and wild Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO). Our goal is to provide the highest quality, genuine cod liver oil that’s as close to the freshness and nutrient content as you would find in the liver of a living codfish!
First, we’d like to share a bit about our company and our process.
Rosita Real Foods (http://evclo.com/) is a small family-run artisanal company based in Norway; made up of old-time genuine Norwegians and fishermen who use the same ancient methods to catch our fish and create EVCLO.
We’re passionate about quality and tradition. And we aim to prove this with the utmost care we dedicate to our craft. Our cod are from the clean, crystal clear waters of the remote Norwegian Fjords. We follow sustainable hand-caught fishing practices, using an open boat with a shelter deck. The oils are then handcrafted in small batches using an age-old and rare method that allows the fish livers to “release” the oil they naturally contain — without the need for heat, solvents, chemicals, distillation, mechanical devices or any form of refining. This is very rare considering the other highly processed commercial oils on the market. Our oils are also gently filtered for contaminants (to meet strict European guidelines).
The result is the same wild and raw cod liver oil that our ancestors, the Vikings and old Scandinavian fishermen, consumed for robust health, with the abundant nutrients that Mother Nature intended.
Rosita Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil is fresh and a source of naturally occurring:
- Vitamin A: 3900 iu/tsp,
- Vitamin D: 395 iu/tsp,
- Omega 3 EPA: 443 mg/tsp,
- Omega 3 DHA: 605 mg/tsp, and
- A full spectrum of Omega fats including 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 11.
Meanwhile, EVCLO is thoroughly tested by leading universities and government-linked institutes, to ensure its purity and potency. We post these results on our website; something no other cod liver oil producer does. Additionally, each and every batch undergoes third-party testing. View more details here.
Why cod liver oil?
Cod liver oil is a nutrient-dense source of vitamins A and D as well as anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t eat enough anti-inflammatory foods that provide these specific nutrients, which play an important role in cardiovascular, hormonal, immune, reproductive and neurological health.* With that, many adults and children may benefit from regularly supplementing with a fresh and raw cod liver oil.*
Specifically, omega-3s and vitamin D are known for lowering inflammation, preventing blood clotting, preserving brain health and preventing depression.* Studies say they’re even capable of causing reduced levels of pain and swelling due to inflammatory conditions.*
Vitamin A is an important antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress (also known as free radical damage) and thereby inflammation levels.*

“(My)… analysis (https://thepeopleschemist.com/best-safest-cod-liver-oil/) confirmed that the extra-virgin cod liver oil from Rosita Natural Foods contained all of nature’s healing fatty acids (EPA and DHA) along with a host of naturally occurring micronutrients such as vitamin A and D. Even better, no environmental contaminants or synthetic counterfeits were discovered….

“I’m thrilled to lend my support to Rosita. It’s a wonderful product. It has a clean, light taste, NO aftertaste, and it is produced with transparency, by good people, in a manner I can truly support.”
Author, The Nourished Kitchen
“When choosing a cod liver oil my family prioritizes sustainability, ethical and traditional production, and good quality in both flavor and nutrition. So, production matters – a lot.
Rosita sources their cod livers from fisherman who catch their fish by hook and line, thus minimizing bycatch and other destructive methods of fishing. Further, they source their cod livers from sustainably managed Norwegian fisheries where the cod populations have exploded, seeing pre-WWII stock levels. Ensuring that the cod liver oil is sustainably and ethically produced.”

And here’s a recent review we have from one of our happy customers, Tara A.:
“I’ve had chronic fatigue for about 3 years now and tried multiple fish oils in the past, none of which I achieved great results from…until now. I’ve only been taking this product for 2 weeks but my fatigue symptoms have improved & so has my joint pain/ memory. It also seems to be helping with my anxiety. I always take it with some other source of dietary fat in my meal. So much gratitude for creating such an awesome healing product.”
