Note from Jim:
The above video above speaks about Skate Liver Oil in relation to the decalcification of the Pineal Gland. But Skate Oil has many other profound benefits that are listed below in two separate articles.
We suggest as the best option that you purchase the newer product known as "X Factor Infused Coconut Oil" because of it's more complete nutritional profile, better overall value for the money and dramatically improved taste. You can find the product listed in our Store.
Also, in anticipation of possible concerns of chemical, heavy metal and/or radioactive toxicity, all of the products made by Green Pasture have been rigorously tested for purity. And as the fish are being taken only from the cold arctic waters of the North Atlantic (well above the Gulf Current), the possibility of chemical, heavy metal and/or radioactive contamination remains virtually non-existent.
The two articles follow:
Skate Liver Oil: An article by Dave Wetzel of Green Pasture
Skates are members of the same family of fish as Sharks. They are bottom feeders and found in all oceans of the world. There is limited fishing of this fish as the market for their meat is limited to just a few cultures.
Skate livers are very large and produce a very deep orange pigmented oil. I knew little of this fish species but was told by an old Russian fisherman that I needed to make this oil. He spoke broken English so the conversation on the subject was short and to the point.
Since the Skate Liver oil introduction I have found many historical writings on the use of Skate liver oil during the 18th and 19th centuries. I am particularly intrigued by the comparison between Dr. Price's notes on the color of oils that he identified as rich in activator X and the skate liver oil's deep rich orange color.
People who use the skate liver oil will defend the product as the one they need and will not give it up.
Activator X was discovered by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS, a Cleveland dentist, who has been called "the Charles Darwin of Nutrition."
"Dr. Price discovered an additional fat soluble vitamin that he called "Activator X" and which was also referred to by others as the Price Factor or X Factor, and is now believed to be vitamin K2. It is a powerful catalyst which, like vitamins A and D, helps the body absorb and utilize minerals. It was present in the diets of all the healthy population groups he studied but unfortunately has almost completely disappeared from the modern western diet. Sources include organ meats from cows eating green grass, fish eggs and shellfish. Butter can be an especially rich source of Activator X/vitamin K2 when it comes from cows eating rapidly growing grass in the Spring and Fall seasons. It disappears in cows fed cottonseed meal or high protein soy-based feeds. Fortunately, Activator X/vitamin K2 is not destroyed by pasteurization."
