      Initially I started using this product on the recommendation of a friend who suffered for years from acute psoriasis. He was treated by MD's using all the convention methods and Rx's. Nothing helped. Somehow he hit on the idea of using cod liver oil high in Vitamin E. Within a few months his psoriasis was gone!. When some minor but annoying and constant dry skin patches appeared at my right elbow, I remembered what he had told me. I began to take a capful a day of Carlson's which was the brand recommended to me by the health store staff. Within a few weeks the skin issues disappeared and my overall energy and body felt better. I like the taste and believe it or not when the liquid hits my tongue it is as if my whole body stands up and applauds the input. Also a Vitamin Shoppe store nearby my home honors the online price (about 1/2 the in-store price) which is very helpful to me since I am on a negative cash flow retiree budget. This is a great product from a customer conscious vendor. I highly recommend both and have told friends these same facts.

      C'mon, going from $23 to $35?! I'll be shopping for this product elsewhere now. My MIL counts on it so I will buy it, but not from VS at this price. Sorry Vitamin Shoppe. I hope you will reconsider and go back to your original price. Odd that you call it a "web only special" price.

        Comments about Carlson Laboratories Norwegian Cod Liver Oil - 16.9 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

        Since I've been taking the cod liver oil supplement (almost once/day) my cholesterol results have been very good. Although I've been slightly above normal in LDL (i.e. the "bad" cholesterol) for several years, because my HDL level (i.e. the "good" cholesterol) is so high -- 1.5 times the average man - my overall ratio of HDL to LDL is such that I don't need to be concerned about taking statins or other drugs that are expensive and may cause nasty side effects. I'll happily keep taking my tablespoon daily, getting those Omega-3's, and feeling good!

        Comments about Carlson Laboratories Norwegian Cod Liver Oil - 16.9 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

        I started taking this because I heard that it was great for your skin since it has DHA and omega fatty acids. I take the daily recommended dose of one teaspoon everyday at night, right before dinner. I have been taking this for five day snow and my skin is already showing drastic improvement. I am 28 years old and have become more proactive with my skincare routine in the last five years, hence this purchase. I have always had combination skin, with the majority of my problem area being on my nose (blackheads that were impossible to get rid of, even while using a clarisonic religiously for the last year, as well as getting facials, using multiple skin treatments, including masks, serums, and moisturizers). However, my chin and cheek area have always had a tendency to get dry, especially in the winter months, no matter what type of moisturizer I use. Flaky patches of skin would frustrate me to no end, especially since I take extremely good care of my skin. I even started using oils on my face to try and get the tone evened out, but nothing has ever worked.

        Until now!

        I am telling you - my face has an actual glow to it like I've never seen before. I'm very fair skinned and deal with some redness around the nose and chin area (thank you hormones!) - these areas are already starting to diminish. The blackheads on my nose are becoming smaller, as well as the pores themselves. I must mention that I do have a small area along my lower jawline and cheekbone (on just one side of my face), that has broken out, but only a few bumps, nothing major. I noticed those yesterday and they're already starting to heal, so I would say that this may break you out at first due to purging. My overall skin tone looks amazing, I don't have any more dry flakes of skin, and my skin FEELS more balanced. It's softer and it feels like it's more nourished from the inside out. The dry feeling is gone and my nose isn't nearly as shiny as it used to be. I can't wait to see how my skin continues to improve over the next few weeks.

        The taste of this oil isn't bad at all. It has a hint of lemon to it, but it doesn't really taste like anything at all. It is kind of weird to drink oil, but I have zero complaints about it because it really is such a small amount to take everyday. I haven't experienced any "after burps" like some people have described. I usually chase it down with some plain water and I'm fine. It is recommended that you take this with a meal, so please do not try and take this on an empty stomach! Also remember to keep it refrigerated after opening, otherwise it could go bad.

        If you are looking into this for your skin, BUY IT!!! This was my very first purchase from Vitamin Shoppe and it shipped quickly. I ordered it on a Thursday and it was here by Monday. Invest in this - it is a great price and will last you a very long time!

        Boosts Vitamin D levels!

        Comments about Carlson Laboratories Norwegian Cod Liver Oil - 16.9 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

        After one year of taking 1/2 tablespoon a day, my vitamin D level went up 17 points! I was at 41, which is low normal, and at my last physical, it was up to 58, which is such a great number! Tastes good, too. No fishy taste at all, nor is it too thick. Yes, it's pricey, but well worth it, I feel. Highly recommend.

                  This fish oil tastes good and I don't keep belching up the taste after I've taken it. (I take 1 teaspoon right before dinner.) The Carlson brand is one that I've seen listed in books and other publications as top quality and containing no contaminants. I started taking it because I have a tooth that remained extremely sensitive after being ground down by my dentist for a cap. After the first one or two doses of Carlson's liquid fish oil, the tooth calmed down and rarely bothers me now. Not exaggerating! The capsules work just as well.

Still the best price in my area - have checked out other websites - but they charge shipping, so I consider this a value. Have recommended the product to family / friends. Joints feel better, D3 is back in balance -- and getting cholesterol checked next month. On my 2nd bottle already. I wish that I would have known about this product sooner!

                                  Looking for an alternative high quality brand. I feel the sudden price increase is a rip off and will no longer recommend to friends.

                                      I had to make a U-turn in your store yesterday when faced with a price increase of over 50%. I question the decision. I've been buying it for 4 years. More buyers of this product means more sales of other products as well. (The VSI stock chart is healthy for this reason.)

                                          C'mon, going from $23 to $35?! I'll be shopping for this product elsewhere now. My MIL counts on it so I will buy it, but not from VS at this price. Sorry Vitamin Shoppe. I hope you will reconsider and go back to your original price. Odd that you call it a "web only special" price.

                                              Although this is an excellent product, I too am not happy at all about the price jump from $23 to $35. I realize that there is still a discount from the MSRP. However, at $35, it makes less sense to buy through Vitamin Shoppe.

I'll have to shop elsewhere though because in the last month the price of the 16.8 oz has gone from $23 to almost $35! What a rip-off! So long Vitamin Shoppe....

                                                          Cod liver oil has been promoted for it's many health benefits, especially because of it's usable vitamin D content. Because I am breatfeeding, I am especially mindful to get my daily dose. What's great about Carlson's is you know it's quality and it doesn't taste fishy. We use the lemon flavor and my kids even ask for it at dinner time, often arguing over who will be first! Vitamin Shoppe also has a great price.

But when my nutritionist suggested the Carlson Lemon, I loved it immediately! No fishy after taste at all! Also, I began to see the benefits of taking Cod Liver Oil...mainly not getting sick as much as before! :-) Then when I found I could by it online through the Vitamin Shoppe for just about half the price...that was the icing on the cake! Thanks Vitamin Shoppe for making Healthy Choices affordable!

                                                                          I've always been skeptical about fish oils and normally dislike them, but I was very pleasantly surprised by Carlson's Cod Liver Oil with the light lemon flavor. Physicians Michael Eades and Mary Dan Eades in their book The Protein Power Lifeplan recommended this very product, as they not only suggest it to their patients, but also take it themselves. I've been using this product for most of the year, and it's always been very fresh. The lemon taste is very subtle, so it's not overwhelming, just a very slight flavor. As it turns out, fish oil should never taste fishy. Throw it out if it does because it has turned rancid, and it will create free-radical damage in the body. All fish oil, whether in pill-form or liquid, should be stored in the refrigerator to keep the oil from spoiling. Heat and light can easily turn the oil rancid. I highly recommend this product.

Not even if I put a teaspoon or two in a full blender of smoothie! It tasted like metallic, rotten fish. I am a die hard health nut, and I couldn't stand it. I was hoping Carlson's would be a little better, but it is not even comparable! I mix a teaspoon with just a half a cup of juice, and it actually tastes really good, like mixing the juice with lemonade. I haven't been brave enough to try it plain, but even with a bit of liquid, this goes down quite easily!!
