To improve my health, I'm ditching all manufactured supplements and opting for raw liver. 150 grams, once a week.
Why liver and why raw?
- Liver is one of the most concentrated sources of Vitamin A
- It contains all the B vitamins in abundance, particularly vitamin B12 if consumed raw
- It's one of our best sources of folic acid
- Contains a highly usable form of iron
- Contains trace elements such as zinc and chromium
- Liver is our best source of copper
- Rich in CoQ10, a nutrient that is especially important for cardio-vascular function if consumed raw.
This evening I ate raw liver for the first time. For palatability, I cut it in very tiny pieces and mixed it in a bowl of cooked vegetables and cooked meat. It was a tasty supper.
I'll be eating raw liver once a week with the intention of improving general health, including skin. I'll take photographs and track what benefits, if any, raw liver adds to my complexion.
Have you had any experiences with raw liver?
Update 1 - June 13, 2013 Keratosis pilaris (tiny bumps that prodcue white, grain-like sebum) on my chin has greatly reduced. It can no be felt and a few bumps can only be seen when my face is practically pressed to the mirror. See below for details.
