So… you better get ready to TRY to love liver. Because it’s full of all the amazing things our body needs. You want to love liver because it has amazing health benefits from all of those vitamins and minerals. Don’t believe me? Check out what Chris Kresser has to say on the subject of why liver is “nature’s most potent superfood” here.
