As previously mentioned, grass-fed beef liver is a forgotten superfood that has nearly disappeared from modern diets. The reason most people no longer consume beef liver is because they either don’t know how to cook it or because they do not like the taste. Some people even shy from eating grass-fed beef liver due to the MYTH that the liver stores toxins. This is simply not true! The liver, in fact, filters and disposes of toxins, but they are NOT stored in the liver. This means that liver is perfectly safe, and incredibly beneficial, to consume.

Back to the taste problem; there are many superfoods that taste less than appetizing, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t eat them! If you are following a standard American diet, it is likely that you are deficient in at least one nutrient, if not many. Grass-fed beef liver is packed with vitamin A, B vitamins, protein, amino acids, fatty acids, iron, and more. All of these nutrients are necessary for optimal human health.

Grass-fed beef liver, raw and fresh or desiccated, works to increase energy and endurance. Grass-fed liver also works to correct iron deficiencies and associated problems such as anemia. As a clean source of nearly pure protein, liver also works to build muscle and combat muscle soreness. I buy desiccated liver online or from my local health foods store.
