Consuming wheat, refined carbohydrates, and industrial seed oils will make you more vulnerable to a host of complications including heart issues.
Myth 5: People with gout shouldn’t try liver recipes.
Uric acid is formed when purines from foods such as liver are broken down. And one of the markers of gout is high uric acid levels. Therefore, the conventional belief is that people suffering from gout need to avoid consuming purine-rich foods like liver.
But the truth is that consuming dietary purines helps the body excrete excess uric acid. In other words, eliminating liver if you have gout is unlikely to solve your issues.

Myth 6: Besides eating liver, there are no other ways of getting liver in your diet.
You can take desiccated liver in capsule form. Simply swallow the capsule with water or open the capsule and add the contents to broths, soups, smoothies, and gravies.
However, you want to make sure to choose a brand that uses liver from grass-fed animals and which is certified to be hormone-free and pesticide-free.
The downside with encapsulated beef liver is that it is expensive since you’ll need to take quite a few capsules to get a therapeutic dose.

- Instead of MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil, use extra virgin coconut oil. Yes, MCT oil is easier to digest than coconut oil. But it does not contain lauric acid, a type of fatty acid with potent antimicrobial activity against gram positive bacteria and a number of fungi and viruses. If you have digestive, liver, or gallbladder issues, you may want to try digestive enzymes and ox bile. Of course, get the green lights from your doctor first.
