<p>Hi I am still not understanding CLO and butter oil, can someone explain to me what they do together? My family was taking blue ice raw fermented CLO  until I read an article saying its not effective without butter oil. My son is dairy/soy intolerant since birth but seemingly ok when I give him a little good butter but I'm still afraid to give him any big amount as he's 2 now and I don't know what his symptoms would be since he's been symptom free since infancy. He use to get bloody poop or green and bumps, red cheeks among other things. Anyway, I just went on. All I want to know is what butter oil to take with CLO, why is CLO alone not effective and other info I need.</p>

<p>I don't know, either!  I hope someone can answer.  I would go ahead and keep taking the CLO, I can't imagine that it does *nothing* without butter oil.</p>

<p>I googled it for you:</p>
<p>Dr. John J. Cannell, Executive Director of the Vitamin D Council, explains the need for K2 (butter oil) with vitamin D is so vitamin D knows when to calcify something and when not to calcify something.  K2 lets D know to calcify bone and teeth and not to calcify arterial walls.</p>

<p>ETA: Also, these videos with another doctor explaining the purpose of K2 and other foods you can find it in.</p>

<p>Thank I watched. So what happens if you ONLY take CLO? Your bones don't get the calcification?</p>

<p>I'm not an expert, but I believe that if you are not taking butter oil or otherwise getting optimal amounts of K2, then your vitamin D is not used as efficiently or as well as it could be.  Going by what the videos said, you could risk arterial calcification (though I don't know if an increase in vit D would increase that risk or not) if you are not getting enough K2.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm currently in the research phase with butter oil/K2 supplementation and all we have are regular CLO softgels b/c I hadn't quite gotten to weighing fermented or non-fermented.  Nor have I come to a true conclusion on the optimal balance of vitamin A & D yet.  Sorry I can't be of more help!</p>
