How do I take Rosita?
Here are the dosing recommendations for Rosita liquid:
- Adults: ½ to 1 teaspoon daily.
- Children and sensitive individuals: 1 to 4 drops daily.
- Infants (as approved by doctor): 1 to 3 drops daily. Drops may be administered by spoon or by dropper prior to feeding.
- Pregnant and nursing mothers: Do not exceed more than ¼ teaspoon daily.
- Best taken with food, as needed.
Here are the dosing recommendations for Rosita softgels:
- Adults: 3 softgels daily. (90 capsule bottle will last 30 days)
- Children and sensitive individuals: Begin by taking 1 softgel daily. The softgels may be punctured with a pin and the oil expressed into mouths of young children.
- Infants (as approved by doctor): 1 to 3 drops daily. The softgels may be punctured with a pin and the oil expressed into the mouth of an infant.
- Pregnant and nursing mothers: Do not exceed more than 3 softgels daily.
- Best taken with food, as needed.
Important: Rosita is premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.
As a side note, here are a few tips on “prepping” your fresh Rosita liquid for the most optimal taste:
- Your bottle has to be refrigerated.
- Before taking your preferred dose, take it out of the fridge, set it on the counter for two minutes.
- Then shake! This allows your oil to be properly distributed (it’s a full spectrum oil, so shaking it makes for a consistent taste).
- Some people like to enjoy a slice of orange afterward for a refreshing chaser.
Some other fun ideas:
Why not try making “mølje”— a traditional northern Norwegian fish dish which is very nutritious and remarkably rich in vitamin D! Poach the white meat of cod, cod liver and a slice of grainy, pale orange cod roe (preferably from sustainably caught wild codfish) in salty water with a chopped onion. Remove from the water and mix ingredients together in a bowl. Add Rosita to the mixture and enjoy! Great for topping up vitamin D levels for the winter.
Externally: Not as a substitute for internal use, but it can also be rubbed into the skin. The oil can also be used topically for wounds and as a skin elixir.
How do I store Rosita?
Proper storage is critical to conserving the nutritional properties of Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil. When using this product, keep it away from direct sources of heat and sunlight.
Liquid: Once you receive your Rosita liquid, please refrigerate your bottle (if you are going to consume the product fairly soon). For longer-term storage, unopened bottles can be stored in the freezer for up to two years. Once opened consume, within three months. Overall, the oil must be kept dark and cold. It may become cloudy and thicken when refrigerated or frozen. This is no cause for concern. Gently shake before use.
Softgels: To maintain the Rosita softgels in the best possible state for the longest time, keep your softgels in dark storage at room temperature, ideally ranging from 58°F to 78°F (15°C to 25°C).
Short temperature excursions whether hot or cold have little-to-no impact. Cold temperatures over prolonged periods of time can increase permeability of the gel and so they should not be refrigerated or frozen.
The shelf life of Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil softgels is two years from the production date.
Should I take the liquid or the softgels?
Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil is exactly the same regardless of the form you choose to purchase. Both the softgels and liquid have a full spectrum of omega fatty acids, high levels of vitamins A and D in their natural, unadulterated form and are raw and fresh.
In terms of the milligrams per bottle, the liquid is more economical. At roughly ½ a teaspoon a day, the liquid can last two months, whereas the bottle of softgels will last a little under one month.
Customers that choose to purchase the softgels do so mostly because they want to avoid the taste of fresh fish. The softgels are also convenient, as they do not require refrigeration and are great for travel. Lastly, the softgels have the added benefit of being made from fish collagen. Fish collagen is more easily absorbed than bovine collagen (which often comprises the softgel casing of other supplements on the market) and is supportive of skin, hair, nail and joint health.*
Why does Rosita liquid require refrigeration?
Codfish are known as thermal conformers. This means that their body temperature equals the surrounding water temperature. The deep waters that are home to the wild codfish that Rosita harvests are at a temperature of approximately 35.6°F to 30.2°F (2°C to -1°C) and colder. So by refrigerating your Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil, you’re actually mimicking the temperatures of a living codfish’s natural environment.
Remember, Rosita is a raw, fresh, whole food. In the same way that many other raw, fresh, whole foods (like raw butter for example) require refrigeration to maintain freshness, so does Rosita.
My Rosita liquid is cloudy, why?
Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil is a pure, real food product that’s raw, unprocessed and unadulterated with no additives. It also contains rich omega fatty acids. Because of these factors, it can get cloudy when refrigerated (although the cloudiness can vary from batch to batch). If your Rosita liquid is cloudy, just let it rest on the counter for a couple of minutes and give it a little shake before taking your dose.
Why are there little specks in my oil?
Rosita is unadulterated and does not strip out any of the nutrients. There may be little specks or particles floating in the oil. This may be waxes, stearins or other types of naturally-occuring fat. This is all completely normal and natural.
