    I’ve been taking Amazing Grass supergreen organic capsules for two years. In 15 weeks pregnant now and still take them. ( I’ve been off food for 10 weeks now with nausea). However, even though they’re reported as safe by the makers, I’ve recently become worried about the beta caratene in them ( naturally sourced from vegetables) . It contains 2,225iui beta caratene : 45%RDA. I know that vitamin A in the form of retinoids causes birth defects, but I didn’t think natural occurring beta caratene could…..??? Can it??? I’m feeling really worried now. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks.

    What brand of CLO do you recommend? Were currently taking Carlsons, but I cannot get a clear description of how it is made, thus wondering if the vitamins are compromised as a result. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Yes, I think we’re all on the edge of our seats to learn what cod liver oil you would recommend. From what I have researched, the large majority of what is being manufactured has synthetic vitamin A that has been added back in rather than what’s naturally occurring in cod liver oil. I know there is Fermented cod liver oil, but I have heard some bad things about that oil, such as rancidity or that it caused some people heartburn. Being that I already have severe GERD so i’m nervous to go that rout. It’s also disheartening to know there’s pretty much only one choice out there and it’s very expensive. Do you know of any good cod liver oil that is safe? What do you use??

    Hello Andrea, Sadly you are very correct. Many companies do use synthetic vitamin A, or have reduced or even removed vitamin A from their product. For this reason I prefer extra-virgin cod liver oil from corganic, though this can be a bit pricey, I feel it is worth it.

    Hi Michelle,
    about 18 months ago I read something on the computer about vitamin A it said that people with chest complaints ie bronchitis were usually deficient in vitamin A and they recommended unsulphered dried apricots 10 a day for an adult male as my husband suffers from COPD we thought we would give it a try as it was a natural remedy. Well now 18 months later and only eating 4 every other day he has not used an inhaler since he started eating them the difference he was able to walk down the road carrying a bag in each hand without getting out of breath and this happened in a short space of time within a couple of weeks. I am not saying this works for every body but it certainly has worked and is still working for him .

    can you please site a reference where the conversion factor of Beta Carotene to Retinol is available? (eg. 6:1)
