INGREDIENT DEEP DIVE: BOVINE LIVER

Dubbed as one of nature’s superfoods, bovine liver contains an abundance of benefits. And although there is a renaissance of nose-to-tail eating, many of us shy away from consuming organ meat, instead turning to supplements to enrich our bodies with their potent nutrients.

 

Incorporated as part of IKKARI’s Inner category and presented as a single ingredient, our bovine liver wholefood nutrient capsule is 100% New Zealand pasture raised. A natural multivitamin alternative, these functional food capsules are bioavailable, being easily and readily absorbed, especially in comparison to synthetic supplements the body does not recognise. We believe in living life guided by nature, harnessing the power and potential it has to offer for your body to go beyond its bounds.

 

VITAMINS

Liver’s vitamin content is vast. Vitamin A (Retinol) contributes to healthy vision, skin cell turnover, reproductive health and immune function by supporting white blood cells and safeguarding against infection. B vitamins make up more than half of the dose of vitamins your body needs for optimum health and liver contains copious amounts of them – including B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5, B6, B9 (Folate) and B12. Their benefits span across producing cellular energy, promoting a healthy metabolism, forming red blood cells, supporting the nervous system, DNA repair and brain function. Vitamin D and K strengthen bones and teeth, cardiovascular health and blood circulation.


COENZYME Q10

This potent antioxidant fights the generation of free radicals and the repercussions they have on DNA. CoQ10 has links to improving cardiovascular health, vascular health and blood pressure, as well as endurance, inflammation,
immunity and reproduction.

PROTEIN AND AMINO ACIDS

One of the richest sources of pure protein, essential for performance, muscle tone, recovery, energy and cell repair. Bovine liver is loaded with essential amino acids to regulate metabolism and hormones, improve collagen production for supple skin, promote and strengthen hair and nails, support bone health and fight fatigue.

 

IRON

Vital to haemoglobin formation and crucial to both blood oxygenation and energy production, iron reduces irritability and fatigue, while increasing stamina and athletic performance. Optimum levels of iron benefit female hormones and can help regulate body temperature and boost brain power.

 

MINERALS

Enriched with essential trace minerals including magnesium, zinc, copper and selenium, each high in antioxidants to reduce oxidative stress and associated damage and disease, while building immunity, supporting thyroid function, brain
cognition, collagen production and the nervous system.
