BENEFITS OF EATING LIVER
Grass-fed and grass-finished liver from pasture-raised cows is among the most nutritionally dense foods in existence. This type of high quality liver is loaded with vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats that support optimal collagen synthesis (think skin, hair and connective tissues), strong immune function, methylation and heart, brain and liver health. Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of this nutritional powerhouse. If you can’t stomach the taste of liver, you can easily throw a few capsules down the hatch without incident — beef liver capsules are virtually tasteless. If you’re looking for a high quality desiccated liver supplement, do your research because not all liver, nor liver supplements, are created equal.
GRASSFED BEEF LIVER IS HIGH IN…
Preformed Vitamin A (aka retinol) Choline Folate Vitamin B12 CoQ10 Bio-Available Iron Hyaluronic Acid
FACT: Liver contains a source of iron bound to hemoglobin (heme iron) of which up to 33% is absorbed compared to non-heme iron which can have as little as 2% absorption.
GRASSFED BEEF LIVER SUPPORTS…
Healthy Teeth, Gums, Skin & Hair Healthy Joints, Ligaments & Tendons Energy Metabolism Immune Function Methylation (Gene Expression) Heart, Brain & Liver Health
FACT: High quality beef liver provides all the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, K & E) in highly usable forms, and provides meaningful amounts of copper, zinc and chromium.
HIGH QUALITY BEEF LIVER
We believe it’s important to source the highest quality liver, because not all liver is created equal. The following are criteria we used to source our liver:

If you’re still not convinced that liver needs to be on the menu, you probably don’t know a whole lot about vitamin A. If you’re not consuming liver one to two times per week, you’re not getting adequate vitamin A. If you’re not getting adequate vitamin A, you’re likely not optimizing robust collagen production for key connective tissues (e.g. skin, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, gums). Vitamin A also supports a strong immune system and fights inflammation.
MOST OF US ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH VITAMIN A… ARE YOU?
Many people believe that they can get enough vitamin A from their fruits and veggies—simply put, they can’t! Fruits and vegetables are high in a family of phytonutrients called carotenoids (e.g. beta-carotene). Because of this, many people (and websites alike), believe that these foods provide vitamin A; however, they do not. The body must convert these compounds into vitamin A; but in humans, this process is inefficient and hardly takes place. The data shows that only three percent or less of carotenoids from plant foods are absorbed. In contrast, eighty percent or more of preformed vitamin A from animal sources (i.e. liver) is absorbed. If you’re not consuming liver one to two times per week, you’re not getting adequate vitamin A. If you’re not getting adequate vitamin A, you’re likely not optimizing your skin, hair and nail health nor are you supporting robust collagen production for other key connective tissue systems (e.g. cartilage, ligaments, tendons, gums). The simple solution is to eat liver twice a week. If you’re just not going to do it, consider a high quality liver supplement.

BEEF LIVER SUMMARY
Our genome has evolved with the nourishment of liver since the beginning of time. Liver is especially rich in preformed vitamin A, vitamin B12, choline, folate and bio-available iron. High quality beef liver supports our connective tissue systems (skin, hair, gums, ligaments, tendons, etc.), energy metabolism, immune function, methylation and heart, brain and liver health. Not all liver is the same. Look for a high quality beef liver that comes from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows that are hormone, pesticide and GMO free. If considering a supplement, look for one that is ultra pure (without binders, fillers (or) flow agents) and look for the freeze dried variety as these have been shown to optimally preserve nutritional factors and co-factors.
SAFETY OF LIVER
High quality liver from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows is completely safe to consume. There is a common misconception about the liver being a storage depot for toxins which couldn’t be further from fact. One of the many roles of liver is to filters toxins and send them to be expelled — usually in the urine via the kidney. In other words, the liver does not hold on to toxins, it expels them. The liver does act as a storage depot for vitamins, minerals and glycogen. Rest assured, liver from healthy animals is safe, nutritious and time-tested.
