Always take your turmeric with black pepper. I honestly would not worry too much about turmeric and hepatotoxicity. But if you're worried about it, take magnesium. Magnesium is good for the liver AND improves digestion and pooping.

I'd guess in the same way they reason you get fat by eating fat, you'll also get fatty liver by eating fat. But perhaps more from the fact that liver really does a lot of the fat metabolism that takes place in the body, such as synthesizing... (more)

There is currently no FDA definition for the term "All Natural". It is a BS marketing ploy of the food industry.

nutrient density is the amount of nutrients you get per kg. Water would have a nutrient density of 0. You could argue that a product's water content is an inverse measure of nutrient density. Bone broth is extremely UN- "nutrient dense". So... (more)
