From our friends at VilcaHome:
Chicken Liver Paté — a truly delicious way to enjoy nutrient dense liver, an important super food that provides essential minerals & vitamins to help support optimal physical and mental health.
Liver is an excellent source of high-quality protein. It is rich in vitamin A, all the B vitamins (particularly B12 — which among other things is critical for mental health), and is one of the best sources of folic acid. Liver is also an excellent source of copper & iron and it supplies other trace minerals like zinc & chromium. Liver also provides CoQ10, a nutrient that is particularly important for healthy cardiovascular function.
Studies have shown that liver has a “anti-fatigue factor,” meaning that regularly consuming it helps to improve physical stamina, making it a favorite food among athletes and body builders.
Liver is an important food for pregnant & lactating women. The Weston A. Price Foundation recommends that pregnant or breastfeeding mothers eat 3-4 ounces of liver 1-2 times weekly (if you‘ve been told to avoid eating liver for fear of getting “too much vitamin A”, check out this comprehensive article all about vitamin A here).
Liver is also an important food for babies & children. In many cultures, liver was used as a “first food” for babies. Today, science supports this traditional knowledge. Primary weaning foods for babies often include lots of cereals. But, studies have shown that these foods lack sufficient protein & zinc and may limit a baby’s growth during the weaning period. Giving liver as one of baby’s first foods can help ensure they have plenty of iron, zinc, and protein to help facilitate healthy growth and development.
