  • Pure desiccated liver

  • Argentinean beef raised on the pristine pampas

  • 500 mg per capsule

Back in the 1960s and '70s, desiccated liver supplements rose to a prominence never before seen in the industry. We couldn't even keep it on the shelves! But, times changed and new innovations eventually drove this wonderful supplement to the back shelves. Now, desiccated liver is making a comeback, thanks to the many Americans who are choosing pure whole foods and whole-food supplements over laboratory-created nutrition. Our 100% Pure Defatted Desiccated Beef Liver is just what you're looking for from Argentinean beef raised on the ecologically friendly pristine Argentinean pampas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great smells terrible After the information about 100% Pure Defatted Desiccated Beef Liver, I bought w/o hesitation. When it got here, I opened it and was met with the smell of when I seed my lawn. It smells like manure. I held my nose and took like a good boy. It works like it was promised but phew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:+)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Liver Didn't think I'd ever say that but it's true. Great way to ingest liver and get those iron benefits too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beef Liver I can't eat liver, so these supps. are Great !!! An occasional burp brings up the taste of Beef Jerky. I love Beef Jerky !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Eating Liver I take this product to ensure I have enough iron in a natural form that the body won't store up. It's when this happens. This product also provides a natural source of B vitamins.
Date published: 2015-06-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swanson's Desiccated Beef Liver Great if you want to up your Iron levels, or if your trying a glandular therapy. This is also perfect for people that want all the benefits of Liver and all the other organ meats, but don't want to eat them! Great price too!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have more energy This product really helps my energy level. I take two at each meal and will continue to do so because I feel better and more energetic. Swanson's prices are very reasonable compared to other sources online and health food stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tried this based on reviews for protein I know that I need protein in my system and thought this would be an easy way of getting it rather than mixing up a protein shake.. from other reviews.I just do not know how much protein I am actually getting from these capsules, but it is an easy alternative from shakes all of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 100% Pure Defatted Desiccated Beef Liver this is easily one of the most effective supplements for its cost, full of extra protein and amino acids. i personally take 4 with 4 meals and 4 post workout for 20 a day. great product for a good price
Date published: 2013-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works.. I noticed a slight increase in my iron levels. Not sure what else to rate this product on, but I take it mostly for the B12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOUBLE D I like that this high-quality Argentine Beef Liver is both DESICCATED (low-heat-dried) and DEFATTED. I take 4 to 6 capsules daily as part of my blood-building program. However, I wish Swanson carried it in the powder form, so I could just stir a tsp into some yogurt. Swanson does carry a desiccated liver powder under another brand, but it is not defatted. Why would one want the fat from liver? Essential Fatty Acids from things like Flaxseed Oil, Krill, Calamari, Hemp Seeds, and the like. . . . yes, definitely; however, I prefer to take a defatted liver product, which this is. I already swallow a whole big bunch of capsules every day, so sometimes if I have time, I'll just pull apart the capsules and dump out the powder into a little plain Greek Yogurt. I really would prefer it, though, if Swanson sold Desiccated and Defatted Argentine Liver in pure powder form in an 8 or 16 ounce jar. Oh well. Thank goodness for this product. It's good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutritious I love these capsules. I swallow about 20 of them every day. Great way to include liver in your diet without the horrible taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dessicated Liver Tabs Dessicated liver is great for raising iron levels if you need to supplement, and since it's a natural food source, is isn't toxic to the body like iron supplements are.
Date published: 2013-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dessicated Liver Tabs If you need to supplement with iron, these are a fantastic healthy option. They normally raise iron levels very nicely (and naturally!) without any need for actual iron supplements, which are normally slightly toxic and pretty hard for the body to deal with. So glad that Swanson offers this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural Energy Source A great product at a great price. A natural source of amino acids, iron a nd B vitamins. Great before a tough workout. Also, handy as a high protein snack through out the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old School Great Product. I have taken elemental iron for years. 'tried numerous iron supplements. I get the same effects from two 500mg liver caps. The Heme Iron from the dessicated liver is a body preferred form of iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I take it as food supplement since I do not often get it otherwise. It assimilates well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Beef liver has been recommended a long time ago as a good source of minerals and vitamins, and I like the fact that this comes from a source that is a cleaner environment. I am pleased with the results and it seems to work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best supplement When I was in my 20's desiccated liver is what we took before we lifted. It made me strong then, and it makes me strong now; almost 60. If I could only take one supplement this would be it.
