Anyone try and see results? I'm thinking of giving some to my toddler for health benefits. What do you ladies think? It's quite expensive though.

Absolutely worth it in every respect. However, I will say that the taste factor is a bit of an issue for some. I recommend the Cinnamon Tingle flavor CLO and we like the Raspberry butter oil.

GP's stuff is fantastic quality.

Hi blueridgewoman

That's great to know... since I already ordered some (high vitamin butter oil and fermented cod liver oil) it cost 104 dollars total but I do live in Hawaii so shipping is always more expensive.

How much do you give to your babies? Do you give it everyday? I plan on mixing some in my daughter's smoothie if the taste is not that good.

I'm going to try CLO myself, and I'm thinking perhaps a medicine syringe? Has anyone tried this? I can let you know if it works tatsu.

I give my son the fermented cod liver oil gel, fruit attack flavor. I think it tastes hideous on it's own so I mix it with his applesauce and he doesn't even realize it's in there!

I just squirt the cinnamon CLO in the back of my throat and chase it with cold water. My butter oil is separate (although you can buy them together) so I just take it off a spoon and chase it with cold water.

I do have the combo CLO/BO cinnamon tingle for DS and he actually likes it and asks for it.

from about 18 months to 2.5, my daughter was fine w/the the CLO and the Butter Oil, though we took them seperately. after that, she started to reject them based on taste and we're still experimenting w/how to get it into her. (the chocolate cream one is nasty!) but it's good stuff!
