In today’s stress-filled, fast paced world, most people depend on some form of crutch to make it through the day.
This often takes the form of coffee, one of the world’s most consumed substances.
Now this post is not meant to call anyone out for seeking a quick burst of energy to carry on through the day…
However, a far better option exists.
This alternative takes the form of one of the world’s best and oldest sources of protein; beef liver.
By the end of this post, it is our intent that you’re able to recognize beef liver as a far better option for not only giving you an energy boost, but also to improve your standard of living.
Coffee is the world’s third most consumed beverage behind water and tea. The popularity of this drink has helped put mega-corps like Starbucks well into business.
While coffee will give you great outbursts of energy for a while, it’s active ingredient, caffeine, also causes a variety of adverse effects such as
- Energy depletion
- Increased risk of heart problems
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Mood swings
- Digestive issues
- Increased pregnancy risk
- Increased blood pressure
- Diabetes &
All in exchange for a little jolt of energy that goes as quickly as it comes.
It is without a doubt that coffee as an energy source just isn’t worth it. It never has, and it never will be.
And if you’re a man, you’re more prone to most of the adverse effects of caffeine such as anxiety, heart problems, and GIT issues.
So why do people continue to consume copious amounts of caffeine everyday?
Over 2 billion cups of coffee are consumed globally everyday, and America alone makes up an incredible 20% of that estimate at 400 million cups per day.
So really, what makes the demand for coffee this high?
Is it the addiction to caffeine? Cultural and social impact of coffee drinking? Do people just don’t know any better? Or is it a combination of all three of these factors?
Beef Liver: Nature’s Intended Energy-Booster.
Thanks to the efforts of some fitness enthusiasts such as the Liver King, beef liver has been making a much needed comeback.
But beef liver is more than just a new ‘fad food’ that’s breaking the net..
Beef liver contains an abundance of varieties of Vitamin B, making it a valuable, clean source of energy, to reduce fatigue, and improve cognitive function.
B vitamins (except foliate) are all involved in at least one and most times, in several steps of energy-production within the cell, as well as better cognitive function.
Vit B deficiency can lead to a series of potentially severe ailments and conditions from low energy production, metabolic failure, and fatigue, to depression in children.
But if beef liver is so rich in vitamin B, as well as a variety of other minerals that are lacking in the average American household diet such as choline, copper, folic acid, iron, potassium, and selenium…
Why Isn’t Beef Liver A Staple in American Household Diets?
- Taste: Let’s face it; majority of Americans have a sweet tooth. Many folks don’t find the taste of beef liver to be great. To a great many people, it’s weird and strong, and to others, it’s downright horrible.
Heck, there’s even folk who can’t be in the same room when a batch of beef liver is cooking in the kitchen.
Because of this fact, beef liver is usually left untouched at the meat aisle in most supermarkets.
If only they knew what they were missing out on…
- The best way to eat beef liver is raw: Beef liver is nutrition dense, packed with a wide assortment of vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Because of this, there’s one major pullback.
Many of these nutrients and enzymes are heat sensitive and so the cooking process tends to destroy most of them.
In order to get the most out of your beef liver, it’s best to consume it raw.
- Popularity: In the modern age where multi-corporations have taken over and coffee mugs are now everyone’s go-to, it’s relatively hard to come across mentions of beef liver on the internet.
Some fitness enthusiasts are currently heavily involved in the battle to spread awareness that we actually don’t need to keep taking the highly addictive, energy and mind-draining soda and caffeine just to keep going.
Why Beef Liver Supplementation is Vital
Modern problems lead to modern solutions. It’s not enough to talk about the reasons why people don’t use beef liver.
We had to come up with a way to make beef liver available, and easy to consume so people can finally shift their focus away from why they can’t use beef liver…
To them using beef liver everyday.
One of the two ways we did this was by desiccating or gently drying the raw liver, in a highly effective and controlled manner.
That way, we were able to eliminate any germs in lurking the raw liver, while preserving all it’s dense vitamins and nutrients and also make it easier for our next process which is
Encapsulation, or sealing the dried beef liver in capsules, making them easy to consume on the go, and without the smell or taste that many people find unappetizing about beef liver.
Caffeine may have the upper hand in terms of popularity, but that’s all there is to it.
Beef liver is cleaner, provides more energy burst, and more importantly, non-addictive, meaning you don’t have to be a slave to the very thing you buy.
If you’ve been looking for a reason why you should start taking beef liver, either by supplementation or cooking, consider this post to be a sign.
