Organs were mother nature's ultimate gift for our ancestors. Although almost completely forgotten, it is still her greatest gift for our complete health. We've steadily lowered immune system function, created metabolic dysfunction/inflexibility, etc. by cutting out the most bioavailable source of nutrients our ancestors ate regularly, organ meats.
Organ meats are the most nutrient-dense foods, the most bioavailable in the world, and the precise nutrition our bodies crave to give us the same protective lifeforce our ancestors had. We have evolved in many ways but our biology has not changed so much that it doesn’t recognize what it still considers optimal fuel. If we want genuinely great health, all you have to do is go back to our roots. The foods available to all of us were all the things you could track, hunt, pluck and fish.
Let's bring some attention to fellow Canadian dentist, Mr. Weston A. Price. Mr. Price was a highly regarded dentist that turned heavily into nutrition after many of his travels led him to write a book on the findings called "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration." He studied the diets and nutrition of various cultures. He was astonished to find the health of these individuals far trumping those of a western diet. They ate much more meat than initially anticipated. Organ meats and muscle meats were the staples. Their teeth fit perfectly in their fully formed mouths with zero decay. He contrasted this to the western cultures where flour, sugar, and modern processed vegetable fats dominated the nutrition pyramid. This diet caused nutritional deficiencies, and with that also came tooth decay, malformed jaws that overcrowded teeth, and dental caries.
We've been sold a bad bill of goods. The idea that saturated fat is terrible, that vegetables and highly processed foods are good, and any animal-related foods cause disease is exactly what's led to the steady decline in our health.
It's time to set the record straight, and that means our health as well. The best thing to do is to keep it simple, discover what worked so well for humans for so many years. Because in a matter of 60 years, we were able to embark on a disastrous obesity epidemic, a diabetes epidemic, a heart disease epidemic, and the list goes on.
It's time to bring back the essential foods. We've decided to do it in a manner that respects our fast-paced lives today and serving it up in a way that would give you the original purity as if you were eating it raw. Our Beef Organs are undeffated and pure as found in nature, delivered as if you hunted it yourself (albeit, a little less messy and a lot less work). Beef Organs is a real multivitamin, one your body needs and knows exactly what to do with—stacked with the nutrients to achieve robust support, healing, and longevity within our systems.
The liver is the ultimate multi-vitamin, and no other organ matches its nutrient density. It is exceptionally rich in Vitamin A, B12, Heme Iron, Folate, and many many more vitamins and minerals essential for supporting the health of your liver, energy demands, metabolism, bone density, immune system, strength, exercise performance, bone density/formation, libido, weight loss, and the list goes on.
Grass-Fed heart is the richest source of naturally occurring coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) which supports mitochondria, heart health, and blood pressure. It keeps the mind sharp thanks to vitamin-B affluent heart muscle which clears toxic homocysteine to improve mood and cognitive function. Heart provides nutrients and peptides that support strength, exercise performance, recovery, mental sharpness, sex drive and energy. The heart is an excellent source of zinc to boost your immune system.
Kidney is a potent supporter of your immune health and histamine metabolism. Kidney has the most bio-available diamine oxidase source, which benefits your immune system, particularly in those with allergies, by aiding in the metabolism of histamines. It supports and strengthens kidney health, and detoxification pathways. It’s rich in selenium and B12. Kidney is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids and is anti-inflammatory.
Spleen supports robust immune health. It builds blood and contains the most concentrated source of heme iron. The spleen’s enhanced sources of bioactive peptides improve immune cell functioning and response to pathogens. It also enhances energy, mitochondrial function, exercise performance, and recovery.
Note: In addition to these benefits, high-quality beef organs provide all the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, K & E) in highly usable forms and provide the perfect amount of folate, copper, zinc, chromium and hyaluronic acid. Some of these vitamins and minerals are among the most deficient in our malnourished diets today.
Cognitive Health, Mood Health
High homocysteine is toxic, especially to your most vital organs like your brain and heart, which puts you at risk for depression and poor cognitive function. Studies have found that up to 30% of depressed patients have elevated homocysteine levels. Adequate intake of B vitamins is required for healthy homocysteine levels, translating into better brain/mood health.
CoQ10 has been shown to reduce blood pressure, improve arterial health, and dramatically cut the risk of heart failure. The most efficient way to add CoQ10 to your diet is by consuming beef heart. It contains 4X the amount found in muscle meat.
Optimal Joint Health and Collagen Production
Amino acids are vital for healthy joints, and the heart contains twice as much collagen and elastin as does muscle meat because of the glycine and proline. These powerful amino acids are essential for connective tissue and joint health.
Immune System Function, Protection, Flexibility
Specific peptides found in the spleen, such as tuftsin and splenopentin, enhance and modulate immune health. Tuftsin stimulates macrophages, and other defensive cells. Deficiency of tuftsin is linked to bacterial infections. Splenopentin, a peptide hormone from the spleen, further supports immune health by increasing neutrophils and macrophages.
Vitamin D, among others, also plays a crucial role in supporting immune function. Vitamin D is difficult to get through foods outside of organ meats, so most people are likely deficient without supplementation or plenty of outdoor time. Note: not all Vitamin D is created equal, nor are they all equally beneficial. The bioavailability of D3 (cholecalciferol), the most biologically active form of vitamin D, is far superior to that of D2 (ergocalciferol). The liver has some of the highest concentrated levels of naturally occurring vitamin D3.
Organ Meats For Energy
Organ meats are a complete nutritional powerhouse when it comes to energy. The liver and kidney are loaded with B vitamins, including vitamin B12, a significant factor in energy metabolism and support. Contrary to some plant-based ideology, B12 is not bioavailable in plant food sources and is just one reason millions of Americans are deficient. Obtaining B12 from complete food sources, such as the liver and kidneys, provides the best way for our bodies to utilize this crucial vitamin, given that it comes with all of the other natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that work together.
Moms and Babies
Primitive tribes gave first dibs on the nutrient-dense liver to expectant mothers after successful hunts. Today, your physician will likely recommend a folate supplement. The synthetic form, unfortunately, does not come close to the real thing found in nature. Folate (not to be confused with the synthetic form – folic acid) is critical to developing healthy babies in the womb. The Weston A. Price Foundation recommends 3-4 ounces of liver, 1-2 times weekly as ideal for pregnant women, based on the practices of these ancient tribes. We couldn't agree more.
Vitamin A toxicity (hypervitaminosis A)
But what about the risk of vitamin A toxicity? While vitamin A toxicity and deficiency are both severe, it's essential to understand that the likelihood of hypervitaminosis A is extremely low with proper nutrition. In particular, ensuring that you have a good intake of other fat-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin D, then vitamin A toxicity is highly unlikely. How much exactly would you need to have toxicity? More than 300,000 IU's per day,
for months, potentially years. To give you an idea, 1 ounce of beef liver is approximately 5000 IU's of vitamin A. That means you would need to consume 60 ounces of liver per day for months to years while being Vitamin D deficient to acquire vitamin A toxicity. That would be pretty hard to do, and it is unlikely anyone would ever consume that much in a day. One pound of liver is 16 ounces, so it's a stretch to eat just under 4 pounds of liver per day for months and years, all while being Vitamin D deficient.
Lastly, there is a big difference between supplementing with synthetic water-soluble Vitamin A, retinyl acetate, and supplementing with the real thing, foods like liver and egg yolks that have the fat-soluble form retinyl palmitate.
