The vitamins A and D in Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO) are naturally occurring from the fish’s liver. They are not actually “sourced” from anything! Rather, the vitamins A and D are exactly as they were in the living cod's liver (still in perfect 10:1 ratio), as no heat, chemicals, or mechanical processes are used in the production. The full spectrum of omega fats is intact, too.
The entire point of Rosita’s ancient, gentle production of EVCLO is to protect the fragile nutrients and fats and give the oil its efficacy.
We want to stress that this is not a processed cod liver oil with added synthetic vitamins. Rosita EVCLO is as close to the oil in the living codfish liver as you can get.
