A 1975 article published in Prevention magazine described the experiment as follows: “After several weeks, the animals were placed one by one into a drum of cold water from which they could not climb out. They literally were forced to sink or swim. Rats in the first group swam for an average 13.3 minutes before giving up. The second group, which had the added fortifications of B vitamins, swam for an average of 13.4 minutes. Of the last group of rats, the ones receiving liver, three swam for 63, 83 and 87 minutes. The other nine rats in this group were still swimming vigorously at the end of two hours when the test was terminated. Something in the liver had prevented them from becoming exhausted. To this day scientists have not been able to pin a label on this anti-fatigue factor.”



  1. Tried this mixture this evening using Calf Liver.

    3 TBS raw liver (frozen or fresh...grass fed if possible)

    2 cups cold water

    Put these in blender and go on each stage from low to high. Stop not heat or froth up too much. Then run thru a large holed strainer to get all the sinew (white tough stuff ) etc. out of the drink.

    Return strained liquid to blender and add all of these:

    1 raw egg

    chipolte chili pepper powder (or your favorite mexican pepper spices)

    cayenne powder

    sprinkle oregano (I use the leaves but powder should be fine too)

    himilayan salt <<-- I didn't add thi

    1 TBS coconut oil ( be sure it's liquified)

    Blend briefly and TASTE TEST from the blender jar. Adjust seasonings as necessary or add water etc. This does NOT taste like meat. The spices and coconut oil are the main flavor.

    Taste the oil and the spices. :) This will make a great wake up drink in the A.M.


  2. This morning receipe.

    Soy milk
    Coconut oil
    Honey (RAW unheated)

    Cuts the liver edge away and makes it bareable. Slight after after after taste.
