Okay, every time the issue of dessicated liver comes up, I try to stay away from it, but I end up having to chime in. 1. Yes, Vince Gironda recommended them, and yes, he had some weird ideas about what exercises to do/avoid, but you know what? One doesn’t have much to do with the other. Vince was decades ahead of his time with his nutritional stuff, and he rated DL as the best supp, period. 2. DL has been around for a long time, so a lot of people view it as an “old” supplement, and therefore not worth the time anymore. Well, as posted above, there’s a reason for longevity. Think about it. 3. To answer Mufasa’s question, in addition to the iron and Vitamin D benefits given above, DL has an awesome amino acid profile - one far better than any other protein supp that I’ve seen. 4. Anyone out there remember Don Howorth? If you haven’t seen his picture, you’ve never seen what IMHO is the best natural physique of all time. And he was on 150 DL tabs a day before contests. 'nuff said. So, to sum up, you may not like the smell, but since the taste is non-existent, so what? Just don’t breathe through your nose for a moment or two and take the stuff. DL works for me. Whether it works for you is something that only your trying it will answer, but I have never had someone take DL and NOT experience positive results. And yes, you should get Argentinian stuff if possible.
