I've never taken CLO and really only started thinking about it with this pregnancy. I've done rather limited research, and understand that FCLO is supposed to be the best, and that Blue Ice is the brand to use.

However, NN is on sale at my local health food store for $17.xx- less than half the price of Blue Ice. Any I being a cheap weenie for feeling like I'd rather just try the NN and see how it goes? Or should I just suck it up and shell out the extra $$ for the good stuff?

Blue Ice is fully unprocessed. Fermented the old fashioned way.
NN is sneaky. It says on the bottle and the website, that it contains "natural levels of A and D.
Meaning, they have added back fake A and D to it, after processing, so that it reads natural in testing.
