Dr. Weston A. Price
Dr. Weston A. Price discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930's. The pinnacle of his X-Factor discovery was the extreme synergistic effect between High Vitamin Butter Oil and traditional cod liver oil. "One without the other did not do his patients justice, but the two together worked like magic".
X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil is made from dairy oil extracted without heat from cows that eat 100% rapidly growing grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil.
The Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil brings us back in time, when cod liver oil was truly a sacred food. The Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil is lacto-fermented and extracted without heat. The fish are wild caught in the Arctic region.
The combination of these attributes provides our community with a pure, clean and nutrient rich sacred food.
Blue Ice™ Royal offers our community a nutrient dense sacred food blend of 1/3 X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil and 2/3 Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil.
Green Pasture X-Factor High Vitamin Butter Oil
With the Extraordinary Healing Properties of Activator X - Available in liquid or capsules
High-vitamin butter oil is produced from the deep yellow butterfat of cows eating 100% rapidly growing green grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil.
This beautiful golden oil is rich in nutrients including a powerful catalyst called “Activator X” discovered more than fifty years ago by Weston A. Price, D.D.S. Dr. Price considered high-vitamin butter oil to have extraordinary healing properties, especially when taken with cod liver oil.
“Dr. Price was often called to the bedsides of dying individuals, when last rites were being administered. He brought with him two things—a bottle of cod liver oil and a bottle of high vitamin butter oil from the cows eating growing grass. He put drops of both under the tongue of the patient—and more often than not, the patient revived.” (From Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon with Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.)
Dr. Weston A. Price’s Discovery of Activator X
Dr. Weston A. Price was a pioneer in research and writing on nutrition and how it related to physical degeneration. He traveled the world during the 1930s and 40s, studied the health of different cultures, and related his findings to differences in diet and nutritional make-up of the foods consumed.
One startling discovery that never gained proper notoriety in the sciences was Dr. Price’s work with high-vitamin butter oil and Activator X. Dr. Price identified Activator X as a potent fat-soluble catalyst found only in organ meats and butter from animals raised exclusively on rapidly growing green grass, and in some sea foods such as fish eggs.
This powerful catalyst helps the body absorb and utilize minerals, and plays an important role in brain and nervous system development, rebuilding of body tissue, repair of teeth and bones, and sex hormone production.
High in the All-Important Vitamin A and Other Fat-Soluble Vitamins
Dr. Price discovered high-vitamin butter oil to be an exceptionally rich source of fat soluble vitamins, which he deemed a necessary catalyst for all biological processes. Sufficient intake of fat-soluble vitamins, particularly vitamin A, is essential for growth, proper utilization of minerals and water-soluble vitamins, and normal development of the brain and the nervous and reproductive systems.
Contains the Wulzen Anti-Stiffness Factor
High-vitamin butter oil also contains the “Wulzen Factor,” or “anti-stiffness factor,” discovered by researcher Rosalind Wulzen. Present in raw animal fat, this compound protects against degenerative arthritis, hardening of the arteries, cataracts, and calcification of the pineal gland. The Wulzen Factor is not present in the dairy products available in supermarkets, as it is destroyed by pasteurization.
Synergy of Butter Oil and Cod Liver Oil
Research shows that butter oil and cod liver oil, taken together, provide complementary factors leading to proper essential fatty acid balance. High-vitamin butter oil contains arachidonic acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid, while cod liver oil is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an omega-3. Moreover, the saturated fatty acids in the butter oil promote efficient utilization of the unsaturated fatty acids in the cod liver oil.
Our High-Vitamin Butter Oil is extracted from dairy milk produced by Guernsey and Devon cows (high butterfat producers) that graze exclusively on irrigated grass in the northern Great Plains. This specific combination of climate and irrigation produces a rapidly growing specialized forage, ensuring optimal levels of Activator X. Activator X and vitamins A and D are then further concentrated by putting the butterfat through a specialized low-temperature centrifuge process.
There are 96 doses per 8 oz jar.
Butter Oil Properties
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
CLA has been shown to be an anticarcinogen in several animal models, reduce the adverse catabolic effects induced by immune stimulation in rats, mice and chickens, enhance growth performance in rats and inhibit plaque formation in rabbits fed an atherogenic diet at least in part via changes in lipoprotein metabolism. CLA inhibits the body’s mechanism for storing fat and causes the body to utilize fatty reserves for energy.
CLA has been shown to inhibit lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat globules in the blood so that adipocyte (fat cell) uptake, or body fat accumulation, can occur. The inhabitation of lipoprotein lipase results in reduced fat deposition.
CLA also increases hormone sensitive lipase activity, an enzyme that breaks down fats stored in fat cells on the body. The fatty acids are returned to the blood stream to be used as an energy source for muscle cells. CLA directs the body to use fat reserves for energy.
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid. Recent research suggests that diets high in stearic acid help lower total blood cholesterol. (Beef fat and cocoa butter contain significant amounts of stearic acid, but they also contain palmitic acid, which raises cholesterol.)
Sphingolipids are one principal group of lipids in the cell membranes, found especially in nervous tissue and cells and the brain. They function in cell-cell communication, signal transduction, immunorecognition, and definition of physical state of membranes and lipoproteins. In addition to those functions, current research has linked sphingolipids as intracellular Ca (2+) mediators.
Lauric and Myristic Acids
In animal studies these two significantly increased HDL.
Butyric acid and other short chain fatty acids are taken up by the intestine to be used for energy.
Butyric acid is specifically an important energy source for the cells lining the colon, where it seems to assist their normal development and maintenance. Butyric acid seems to reduce chronic inflammatory conditions of the colon, and high fecal levels correlate with decreased risk of colon cancer.
Butyric acid works in several ways:
It reduces the inflammatory condition of these walls, reducing intracellular seepage of undigested food particles.
It seals up the holes left by penetration of the roots, i.e. rhizoids, of candida albicans overgrowth, which are often implicated in secondary food sensitivities.
By stimulating epithelial sloughing in the intestinal tract, new attachment sites are created for favorable bio-flora such as bifidus and acidophilus cultures. Re-establishing the balance of protective bacteria supports our enzyme and fighter cell capabilities, which is necessary for stronger immune support.
In compromised immune systems, undifferentiated cell growth can be inhibited by butyric acid.
Butter Oil Components
The Wulzen Factor: Called the “antistiffness” factor, this compound is present in raw animal fat. Researcher Rosalind Wulzen discovered that this substance protects humans and animals from calcification of the joints—degenerative arthritis. It also protects against hardening of the arteries, cataracts and calcification of the pineal gland. Calves fed pasteurized milk or skim milk develop joint stiffness and do not thrive. Their symptoms are reversed when raw butter (and raw high vitamin butter oil) is added to the diet. Pasteurization destroys the Wulzen factor.
The Price Factor or Activator X: Discovered by Dr. Price, Activator X is a powerful catalyst which, like vitamins A and D, helps the body absorb and utilize minerals. It is found in organ meats from grazing animals and some sea food. Butter can be an especially rich source of Activator X when it comes from cows eating rapidly growing grass in the spring and fall seasons. It disappears in cows fed cottonseed meal or high proteinsoy-based feeds.
Arachidonic Acid: A 20-carbon polyunsaturate containing four double bonds, found in small amounts only in animal fats. Arachidonic acid (AA) plays a role in the function of the brain, is a vital component of the cell membranes and is a precursor to important prostaglandins. Some dietary gurus warn against eating foods rich in AA, claiming that it contributes to the production of “bad” prostaglandins, ones that cause inflammation. But prostaglandins that counteract inflammation are also made from AA.
Short- and Medium-Chain Fatty Acids: Butter contains about 12-15% short- and medium-chain fatty acids. This type of saturated fat does not need to be emulsified by bile salts but is absorbed directly from the small intestine to the liver, where it is converted into quick energy. These fatty acids also have antimicrobial, antitumor and immune-system-supporting properties, especially 12-carbon lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid not found in other animal fats. Highly protective lauric acid should be called a conditionally essential fatty acid because it is made only by the mammary gland and not in the liver like other saturated fats. We must obtain it from one of two dietary sources—small amounts in butterfat or large amounts in coconut oil. Four-carbon butyric acid is all but unique to butter. It has antifungal properties as well as antitumor effects.
Omega-6 and Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids: These occur in butter in small but nearly equal amounts. This excellent balance between linoleic and linolenic acid prevents the kind of problems associated with overconsumption of omega-6 fatty acids.
Lecithin: Lecithin is a natural component of butter that assists in the proper assimilation and metabolization of cholesterol and other fat constituents.
Cholesterol: Mother’s milk is high in cholesterol because it is essential for growth and development. Cholesterol is also needed to produce a variety of steroids that protect against cancer, heart disease and mental illness.
Glycosphingolipids: This type of fat protects against gastrointestinal infections, especially in the very young and the elderly.
Trace Minerals: Many trace minerals are incorporated into the fat globule membrane of butterfat, including manganese, zinc, chromium and iodine. In mountainous areas far from the sea, iodine in butter protects against goiter. Butter is extremely rich in selenium, a trace mineral with antioxidant properties, containing more per gram than herring or wheat germ.
Green Pastures Cod Liver Oil Gives Endless Health Benefits
Green Pastures cod liver oil is unheated, fermented and produced through a powerful filtering process. The natural enzymes and vitamins are retained, unlike in other brands of cod liver oil that are highly refined. Some health food stores also produce this product through a process that extracts natural vitamins, adding synthetic substances after such filtration process. Hence, there is a low level of natural vitamin, nutrient, and enzyme contents.
Importance of Fermentation
Green Pastures cod liver oil goes through an active fermentation process, producing a very strong flavor. However, the powerful flavor may be reduced through an immediate intake of water, juice, or cream. People who have troubles with strong flavors can rely on cod liver oil capsules instead.
Advantages of Fermented Cod Liver Oil
Apart from retaining essential nutrients and enzymes, there are other advantages of cod liver oil that went through the process of fermentation.
Fermentation tends to transform natural vitamins into metabolites of co-factor enzymes that are absorbed by the body easily.
Since the product is absorbed easily and effectively, small dosage is necessary.
Fermented cod liver oil is often sourced from organ tissues that contain high nutrient levels.
Regular products require heat process that tends to destroy natural nutrients and enzymes, yielding to a very high amount of oil volume.
Fermented cod liver oil is very economical, considering the essential amounts of nutrients compared to regular products.
Health Benefits of Fermented Cod Liver Oil
Similar to other fermented products, Green Pastures cod liver oil offers lots of health benefits to users. These health benefits may be optimized through a regular intake of Green Pastures Cod Liver Oil. Users of cod liver oil often experience:
