Hi all, please bear with me as I am a newbie in this forum.<br><br>
I have been trying to read through the Healing Cavities thread and it will take me a while; there is a ton of information in it!<br><br>
I have two quick questions. How much CLO should I give to a 20 lb. 22mo? If I take the CLO and probiotics will my baby get any of it via breast milk? I just gave her 1 tsp CLO, which she took, but probably won't ever again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> She said, "I no like that, it yucky!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I don't know how to get it in her again. The only brand my grocery store had was TwinLab. Is there a big difference in the taste among brands?<br><br>
TIA<br><br>

There is a huge difference in quality among the different brands of CLO. Its imperative that you get a high vitamin CLO such as Blue Ice. This particular brand removes the mercury but retains the natural fat soluable vitamins A and D found in CLO. The vitamins protect the teeth and are powerful antioxidants. I do not have a problem with the taste of Blue Ice CLO although I try NOT to taste it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I wash it down quickly with a glass of raw cow's milk which also has the valuable fat soluable vitamins that your body needs. You can also try some Butter Oil. Butter oil is another way to get the vitamins but its more expensive. CLO and BO can be taken in combination for the maximum effect. Your DD might find BO more agreeable and could eat it on a peice of toast or something. Taking the supplements yourself will help too if you nurse. I think the dose for nursing and pregnant moms is twice that for other folks. The regular dose for Blue Ice is 1/2 tsp so you should take 1 whole tsp. I take that much even though I'm not pregnant or nursing but just trying to rebuild my health. <a href="http://www.building-health.com/home.html" target="_blank">Here</a> is where I buy my Blue Ice. Its the cheapest. They also carry the butter oil I mentioned above.<br><br>

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"> found the answer 90 servings. The soft-gels are slightly more expensive if you figure 2 capsules = 1/2 tsp serving.

My kids really like the Nordic Naturals kids capsules for clo. IT's called DHA junior I believe, and is strawberry flavoured. I have to put them up high or they will sneak them. They just chew them up.<br><br>

Both Carlson's CLO and Nordic Naturals are low in vitamins--just look at the labels. But Carlson's makes an A & D capsule and the vitamins come from fish oil <a href="http://www.carlsonlabs.com/product_detail.phtml?prodid=00045&categid=0004&PHPSESSID=f54ea114ef0b7987fe7509962b8cfaed" target="_blank">http://www.carlsonlabs.com/product_d...7509962b8cfaed</a><br><br>
I got my butter oil and CLO here... it tastes like CLO and it is high vitamin. <a href="http://www.radiantlifecatalog.com/sec.cfm/ct/1" target="_blank">http://www.radiantlifecatalog.com/sec.cfm/ct/1</a><br>
So, you can keep taking Carlson's CLO or Nordic Naturals to get your fatty acids, take Carlson's A & D capsule to get the vitamins, and the butter oil (or raw grass fed dairy) to get your "factor X."<br><br>
Also, see this for dosage guidelines:<br><a href="http://www.westonaprice.org/basicnutrition/clarifications.html" target="_blank">http://www.westonaprice.org/basicnut...fications.html</a>
