Beef Liver- Nature’s Multivitamin

Many people want to supplement with a multivitamin — and with good reason! Our soils are so depleted from many necessary nutrients, which makes it hard to get an adequate amount of nutrients from diet alone. Before you go out and get a centrum multi (which could be contaminated with heavy metals… yikes,) consider a grass-fed beef liver option, instead.

Beef Liver is full of nutrients that are bio-available and easy to digest! Other supplements may be in forms that are not easily absorbed, so you’re really not getting too much from it.

Beef liver vitamin and mineral profile

  • Zinc

  • Copper

  • Potassium

  • Iron

  • Selenium

  • Magnesium

  • Calcium

  • Vitamin B12, B6, A, and C

  • Folate (important for preconception and pregnancy!)

  • Choline (important for fetal brain development)

Liver is a true superfood! Muscle meats tend to be favored over organ meats and not many people consume them anymore. We’re missing out on so many nutrients by ditching the nose-to-tail eating practice.

The benefits of this food are vast! Due to the mineral and nutrient profile of liver, it is great for supporting many systems in the body:

  • reproductive health and fertility

  • Endocrine system

  • Immune system

  • Cardiovascular health

  • Eyesight

  • brain health

  • much more

Beef liver is even a great prenatal! (discuss supplementation with your practitioner!)

Benefits during pregnancy:

  • highly absorbable folate, iron, minerals, and vitamins that are essential during the prenatal period.

  • Supports the development of a baby’s immune system, nervous system, and other vital organs.

  • Supports replenishment of minerals and vitamins during the postnatal period.

Brands matter! I love ancestral supplements’ beef liver and Standard Process for their organ glandulars.
