The Benefits of Beef Liver Supplements

The Benefits of Beef Liver Supplements

Beef liver offers a primary source of Vitamin A and iron and helps in skin nourishment. In this article we dig deep into the benefits of beef liver supplements.

An all-day clean energy source

Beef liver is a good source of energy since it contains an abundance of Vitamin B. Vitamin B helps convert food into chemical energy to fuel our cells and supports the burning of fats into chemical energy. There is a wide variety of Vitamins B from organ meats in general with beef liver containing the following

  • Thiamine [B1] – metabolises food into energy as ATP [Adenosine Tri Phosphate] for cells.
  • Riboflavin [B2] ­­­­– helps in red blood cells formation and conversion of food into energy as ATP for cells.
  • Niacin [B3] – it supports food digestion and converts food into energy as ATP for cells.
  • Pantothenic Acid [B5] – helps in fat metabolism, the formation of red blood cells and conversion of food into energy as ATP for cells.
  • B6 – helps in red blood cells formation and production of energy by converting food into ATP.
  • Folate [B9] – it's essential for red blood cell formation and supports protein metabolism. Protein is the main building blocks for the body.
  • B12 – assist in red blood cell formation and production of energy.

Skin Health

Beef liver contains retinol which is the active form of Vitamin A that helps in skin nourishment. Beef liver can be used to support for acne, mostly caused by hormonal imbalances, chronic inflammation, poor gut health and free radical exposure. Vitamin A is fat-soluble and helps in addressing acne by:

  • Reducing the size of the oil-producing glands that block pores.
  • Help in healing the acne scars faster.
  • Regulates shedding process of the skin.
  • It's an antioxidant hence protects the skin against free radicals.
  • Helps to reduce inflammation thus making the skin look smooth and nourished.

Reduces Risk of Anemia

Liver supplements are a good source of iron among other minerals. The liver combines iron, folate and Vitamin B12 to naturally overcome anaemia and prevent fatigue, irregular menstrual cycles and neurological issues. Iron supplementation is often recommended to menstruating females, nursing mothers and vegetarians / vegans who need iron in their diets.

High copper and glycine

In addition to skin nourishment by Vitamin A, liver supplements also contain high amounts of glycine and copper, helping to maintain the collagen levels under our skin. Collagen helps to reduce skin wrinkles by plumping and firming the underlying skin tissues.

Helps in strengthening bones

Beef liver supplements are rich in Vitamin K2, which assists in calcium balance. Calcium is adequate for bone formation and strength, but when incorporated with vitamin K2, it is directed by K2 into bones and keeps calcium out of arterial walls. 

Detoxification

Detoxification is the removal of toxic chemicals and substances from our bodies, and the liver carries it out by use of a mineral called molybdenum. The mineral acts as a coenzyme in the conversion of sulfates from sulfites and metabolism of drugs and alcohols.

High in Antioxidants

Antioxidants like vitamin A, C and E prevent our body cells from being oxidised by oxidative reactive species of free radicals such as UV ray beams, inflammation caused by them and cigarette smoke etc. The antioxidants, therefore, support cellular health.

Rich in CoQ10

Beef liver supplements are a rich source of CoQ10, found primarily in the mitochondria. CoQ10 is associated with cardiovascular health, vascular health and blood pressure. CoQ10 also improves sperm and egg quality, endurance and lowers inflammation. Liver supplements can be useful to support healthy ageing by keeping up CoQ10 levels since they reduce with age.

Excellent Source of Active Vitamin A

Beef liver is rich in vitamin A, as we mentioned above. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble, antioxidant and supports skin health, thyroid, eye health, and enhances immunity among other metabolic functions. Vitamin A also has retinol which is essential for skin health.
