Default Liver Tabs

So i got me some liver tabs eventually...ordered some Beverly and univeral.

Universal:
The site i ordered from didnt list all the ingredients unfortunately...the Universal tabs second ingredient is whey! WTF. At least they are 1.5g protein per tab, and apparently grass fed so ill finish them.

Info i got from universal:
There is 2mg of Iron per tab.
There is 25IU of Vitamin A per tab.

Beverly:
Yet to try the Beverly, they dont state grass fed.
Info i got from Beverly:
This is the most in depth info I have on Ultra 40. Check out the link as well. The amounts of Vitamin A are very small because the fat is removed.

http://www.beverlyinternational.net/...s/Ultra_40.pdf \

Ultra 40 is a natural occuring substance with added B1(75mcg per tab).
Because it occurs naturally in nature it can vary as to it's composition.
Each Ultra 40 tablet is equivalent to 2600 mg defatted liver.
According to USDA 10 grams defattd liver (approximately 4 tablets) would yield on average:

Calories 30
Total Fat <1 g
Trans Fat 0 g
Cholesterol 2 mg 1%
Protein 7 g 14%
Niacin (Vitamin B-3) 0.1 mg 1%
Vitamin B-6 5 mg 250%
Iron 2mg



Anyhow, I have found that these tabs are a great protein boost when on plane flights to supplement the menial protein portions/dire food they serve, so given the portability and fact i cant find fresh liver i trust i think they are a winner.
Thanks to Garrett for the liver reminder!

Cheers.
