100% Grass-Fed Glandular Organ Complex: Ancient Superfoods

Have you thought about adding Ancient Superfoods to your diet, like those found in 100% Grass-Fed Glandular Organs?

When you go to your local grocery store to buy meat, you usually pick out some steaks, chicken breasts, ground beef, or another tasty meat – right? You buy them for the protein content, heme iron, B12, and most importantly, the delicious flavor of a juicy steak.

But what if we told you that these are some of the least nutritious types of meat? Or that some other edible animal meats are superfoods?

Shocked? – That’s okay, this information is not common knowledge.

Here is the scientific truth: The liver, heart, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen are all jam-packed with vital nutrients that can help supercharge your energy levels, digestion, and overall health – not to mention that they provide a high concentration of protein… but who wants to eat them?

No matter how squeamish you might get at the thought of eating beef organs and glands, it is important to understand their value.

And no, we do not expect you to go buy liver and eat it (unless you really want to).  

[1]

The Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef Organs and Glands

Predators in the wild, such as lions and wolves, tend to eat the organs and leave the muscle meat for scavengers. Tribes all around the world have consumed organs for both nutritional and medicinal purposes, considering many organs to be delicacies – from the native tribes in North America all the way to aboriginal tribes in Australia.

This begs the question: Do they know something we don’t? The answer is yes.

Let’s start with reviewing the benefits of some of these uncommon meats.

Liver

The liver is one of the largest organs in the body, and it is responsible for neutralizing and removing toxins from the blood. These vital functions require a very dense structure, and liver contains high quantities of critical nutrients to the human body:

  • Vitamin B12: This vitamin is used by the human body to create red blood cells, DNA, and is critical for maintaining healthy brain function. Vitamin B12 can only be sourced from animal products or supplements – and a single serving of beef liver contains 3,460% of the recommended daily intake.
  • Vitamin A: This fat-soluble vitamin supports health vision, skin, bones, and many other types of tissues throughout your body. It is also an antioxidant that scavenges excess free radicals and helps protect your cells and slow down the aging process.
  • Riboflavin (B2): Riboflavin is involved in thousands of bioactive processes throughout your body and is a critical nutrient for overall health. It assists your body in the decomposition of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and is involved in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) an energy-carrying molecule.
  • Folate (B9): Folate is involved in almost every aspect of your body’s function, including digestion, brain and nerve function, liver and heart function, the creation and repair of DNA, the production of red blood cells, and the production of health hair, skin, and nails.
  • Heme Iron: Iron is one of the most important minerals required to produce red blood cells, and it must be consumed in dietary form. The iron found in vegetables and other sources has low bioavailability (which means your body flushes most of it down the drain), but the form of iron found in liver, called “heme iron,” is highly bioavailable and can be rapidly put to use.
  • Copper: Copper helps your body produce red blood cells, maintain nerve cells, and produce immune system cells. It is also involved in the production of collagen and your body’s ability to absorb iron. A consistent, healthy intake of copper is known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
  • Choline: When it comes to a range of health benefits, few nutrients compare to choline. This nutrient promotes healthy brain development and supports cognitive function, while also protecting heart health, a well-functioning nervous system, and a reduced risk of stroke.

 [2,3,4,5,6]

Heart

Eating beef heart comes with a host of health benefits, including (surprisingly) supporting heart health. Some of the most important benefits of beef heart include:

  • Protects against cardiovascular disease
  • Reduces the risk of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Improves cognitive function
  • Reduces the risk of mental illness, such as depression and anxiety
  • Boosts energy
  • Slows cellular aging

These benefits come from the wide range of nutrients in beef heart, which include bioavailable trace minerals, B vitamins, and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), an antioxidant known to boost energy production, treat cardiovascular diseases, and reduce the risk of severe illness.

[7]

Pancreas

Beef pancreas comes with a range of nutrients found in no other meat and is known to directly influence the health of your own pancreas. It contains proteins unique to the pancreas, as well as a host of other compounds, nutrients, enzymes, and cofactors that support overall systemic health and directly influence the health of your pancreas.

The human pancreas is the primary source of natural digestive enzymes, and beef pancreas provides your digestive system with a booster-shot of these enzymes to significantly enhance your natural digestive processes.

Kidney

Beef kidney has high quantities of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and is an excellent source of B vitamins and minerals.  It is also one of the best natural sources of selenium, which is one of nature’s top antioxidants and immune-supporting micronutrients.

Spleen

Spleen has been used for centuries as an immune-boosting supplement due to its high concentration of unique peptides such as tuftsin and splenopentin, which have been shown to stimulate the production and activity of key white blood cells. It also contains proteins unique to the spleen that enhance the effectiveness and activity of your immune system, while providing unique support to your own spleen.

Adrenals

Bovine adrenals contain a wide range of adrenal-specific proteins and nutrients that support a well-functioning human adrenal system when taken orally. It has become a staple in homeopathic remedies to reduce adrenal fatigue and restore energy, focus, and strength.

[8,9]

When you combine the liver, heart, and pancreas with the kidney and spleen, you have an unbeatable nutrient powerhouse that delivers a power-packed boost to almost every area of your body.

And the best part? You can benefit from these nutritious meats without having to eat them…!

Fast-Acting Sugars Vs Slow-Acting Sugars & The Ballooning Of A Nation
Fast-Acting Sugars Vs Slow-Acting Sugars & The Ballooning Of A Nation

Alright, so we know that when sugar comes into the body Insulin is released to shuttle that sugar into the cell. And if the cell is full, then it connects the sugars in chains and stores them as something called Glycogen in your muscle and liver cells for use later on. And if those are full then it connects the sugar to fatty acids and stores it as body fat. And, while Insulin is in the blood stream, fat burning is prevented.

We also know that, given too much sugar for too long, the cells start resisting it and refusing to let it in when Insulin tells them too, causing them to have less sugar to make energy with as well as causing more of it to be converted to body fat.

This is the second article in a series on Insulin, Insulin Resistance, Sugar and Body Fat, as a well as an overall series on hormones, so stay tuned!

Alright, if you read the first article in this series (Link this to first article) then you understand that when sugar is in the blood stream the hormone Insulin is released to send it into the cells for energy, or to store it as energy in the muscles as something called Glycogen, or to convert it into fats known as Triglycerides — body fat.

And that while insulin is in the bloodstream almost no fat burning can take plac

About 90% Of Your Body Fat Comes From… Sugar
About 90% Of Your Body Fat Comes From… Sugar

Yes, about 90% of what most of us consider as body fat is made by and from sugar. 

But probably not how you think. 

And it has a lot more to do with the type of sugar it is and, more specifically, how it affects your hormones (messenger chemicals that tell your body how to use the food you put into it)

Because it’s your hormones that will determine what will ultimately happen with this sugar and whether or not it will be used to make new body fat.

Let me assure you, this is not another low carb rant!
