Reclaim Your Vitality
At Heart & Soil we believe that animal meat and organs are the most nutrient rich foods on the planet, and that they provide all the vitamins, minerals, and growth factors that we need to thrive.
This knowledge has been passed down between generations of our ancestors who have always treasured animal foods above all sources of nourishment. Our predecessors didn’t just eat muscle meat. While a grass fed steak is a delicious part of our diet, this is only part of the equation.
If we truly want to attain optimal health and kick as much butt as possible, eating animals from nose to tail is key. Consuming organ meats in addition to muscle meat provides a complete complement of nutrients and honors the animals we are so blessed to be nourished by.
Simply put, animal foods eaten nose to tail are the ultimate human multivitamin, containing all of the nutrients we need to thrive in the most bioavailable forms without any of the toxins found in plant foods.
Introducing: gut & digestion
Five of the most treasured organs from regeneratively raised, grass fed, grass finished New Zealand cattle in one amazingly powerful supplement.
Tripe, Intestines & Pancreas
100% Grass Fed Intestines, Tripe (Stomach), and Pancreas contain essential peptides, nutrients, and growth factors that play a vital role in healing leaky gut, and support digestive, immune, and thyroid health, as well as wound healing, collagen production, and blood sugar control.
Liver & Spleen
100% Grass Fed Liver and Spleen contain specific vitamins, minerals, and peptides which support a healthy intestinal lining and aid in the resolution of leaky gut and GI inflammation.
Nutrients in Gut & Digestion
Tripe, Intestines & Pancreas
- Peptide BPC-157.
Identified through research for neuroprotection, wound healing, resolution of inflammation, and maintenance of the gut epithelial lining.
- Alpha defensins 5 and 6.
Antimicrobial peptides involved in the immune response.
A vital mineral involved in anti-oxidant defense (Super Oxide Dismutase), thyroid function, bone health, blood sugar regulation, as well as wound healing and collagen production.
Necessary for proper cell division, red blood cell production, neurotransmitter formation, and optimal exercise performance.
A critical mineral for thyroid function (iodothyronine deiodinanses) and immune health/antioxidant defense (glutathione peroxidase, thioredoxin reductase).
- Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP).
Found in pancreatic tissue and supports digestive processes by stimulating the release of enzymes, bicarbonate, and fluids.
Liver & Spleen
- Bioavailable Vitamins A, D, E, K2.
Play critical roles in overall immune and bone health.
- Riboflavin, folate, B12, and choline.
Essential for red blood cell formation, as well as immune, brain, reproductive, and cardiovascular health.
- Copper, biotin, and CoQ10.
Crucial for overall metabolism, mood, and energy, as well as health of skin, hair, and nails.
- Niacin (B3).
Essential for cardiovascular health, mood, cognition, and energy.
- Liver expressed antimicrobial peptide (LEAP-2).
An antimicrobial peptide also involved in the immune response and glucose metabolism.
A peptide directly involved in iron metabolism as well as the innate immune response.
- Splenin, tuftsin and splenopentin.
Peptides exclusively found in splenic tissue which enhance immune function.
An amino acid in liver, kidney, and bone marrow found to support detoxification and longevity pathways.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are small molecules composed of less than 50 amino acids that serve valuable signaling roles in the human body.
Our understanding of these compounds is in its infancy, but there is already a large amount of interest in them. These special molecules occur naturally in organ meats.
We believe that these distinctive signaling molecules may underlie many of the unique benefits observed with consumption of organs. Science is finally beginning to unravel the mysteries our ancestors appreciated instinctively.
Ancestral Use Of These Organs
Our ancestors cherished the organs of the animals, not letting any part go to waste. The intestines were especially treasured by indigenous cultures, and this was highlighted by Dr. Kristen Borre, anthropologist and expert of the native Canadians of the arctic and sub-Arctic, “Women and children are accustomed to eating different parts of the seal because they wait until the hunters are done eating. Intestines are the first thing to be chosen…”
Beverly Hungry Wolf adds to this discussion through her writing in The Ways of My Grandmother where she described the Blackfoot delicacy known as “Sapotsis or Crow gut,” which was “made from the main intestine which is stuffed with meat and roasted over coals. Tripe was prepared and eaten raw or boiled or roasted.”
Wolf further details, “Another delicacy is at the very end of the intestines—the last part of the colon. You wash this real good and tie one end shut. Then you stuff the piece with dried berries and a little water and you tie the other end shut. You boil this all day, until it is really tender and you have a Blackfoot Pudding.”
Other arctic scholars noted that the indigenous peoples of Alaska did not shy away from these organs as well, “The stomach, intestines and heart were emptied, turned inside out, and dried.” - Traditional Animal Foods of Indigenous Peoples of Northern North America by Dr. Harriet V. Kuhnlein and Dr. Murray M. Humphries
Writings from Lame Deer Seeker of Visions by John (fire) Lame Deer and Richard Erdoes explained Native American Indian traditions of eating the entrails, “In the old days we used to eat the guts of the buffalo, making a contest of it, two fellows getting hold of a long piece of intestines from opposite ends, starting chewing toward the middle, seeing who can get there first; that’s eating. Those buffalo guts, full of half-fermented, half-digested grass and herbs, you didn’t need any pills and vitamins when you swallowed those.” - John (fire) Lame Deer and Richard Erdoes, Lame Deer Seeker of Visions, Simon and Schuster, 1972, page 122.
Weston A. Price on the Native Indians living in the Rocky Mountains Range of the far North of Canada: “I found the Indians putting great emphasis upon the eating of the organs of the animals, including the wall of parts of the digestive tract.”
Gut and Digestion
I bought this product for my wife. She only takes a couple of capsules a day. My wife doesn't say much about any issue she may be experiencing but occasional she have mentioned about her digestive issues. This is the reason that I purchased this product for her.
I feel great!!
I think it’s because of these supplements that the eczema has gone away. I am trying not to eat eggs and my only dairy (flare foods) now is grass butter. I’m trying to let go of almond butter...oh my. Lol. Either way, I feel great!! Love how the kids are taking them too!! :0) Thank you!!!!!!
Ulcerative Colitis & Lupus
I absolutely LOVE the Gut & Digestion. I took a Naturopathic Route in healing my gut. Western Doctor's wanted so many pharmaceuticals. Naturopath Dr gave me Carnivorous Diet to help heal my gut. These suppliments have helped me receive the nutrients my Body Needs. I'm thankful that I can keep food down and those horrible pains are slowly going away. With God's help doing my part in educating the Natural Way of Healing. I look forward to getting the rest of suppliments and my healing journey
Gut and Digestion
The gut and digestion supplements have completely exceeded my expectations. Super super happy with the results
Gut and Digestion
I have experienced extreme nausea and stomach cramping after taking this. It subsides after 5 or 6 hours but definitely rough going. Poops have been normal though.
Hi Brian, Thank you for leaving us this review. We are sorry to hear you have been experiencing nausea and stomach cramping. We truly consider you a part of our tribe and want to ensure you have the best experience possible. Less than 5-10% of our clients will experience sensitivities to our supplements. The good news is we have been able to help many others transition and benefit from the deep, fundamental nourishment our products offer, just by moderating the dose. Here is what we suggest: Start with one capsule every other day for two weeks, then increase to one capsule every day for one full week before moving on to two capsules, and so on. Continuing to give the body these unique nutrients and gradually titrating up with the addition of one capsule per week has been an incredibly valuable solution for others just like yourself. There are many complex enzymatic reactions in the body that require multiple nutrients that are often not found daily in the average diet of modern humans. The inclusion of animal meat and organs can provide these for us in an ancestrally-consistent way, enabling processes like methylation, and other biochemical pathways that are fundamental to detoxification. We see the occurrence of GI irritation (bacterial die-off, or Herxheimer reaction), headaches, rashes, and other detox-related symptoms accompanying the inclusion of our supplements or the transition onto an animal-based diet as a positive thing which suggests that many of the body's intrinsic detoxification systems are coming back online. Rest assured, this is an adjustment period that your body will naturally overcome (think of this like a J curve -- some may feel worse before feeling much better). During this transition, we strongly encourage you to eliminate the most toxic plant foods (leaves, stems, seeds, nuts, grains, and legumes) and, most importantly, seed oils (corn, canola, cottonseed, safflower, sunflower, soybean, peanut, etc.). Ensure yourself to drink plenty of water, continue exercising, and prioritize sleep while your body goes through this healing process. We hope this is helpful and if you ever have questions on how to construct a properly constructed nose-to-tail, animal-based diet or about our supplements, please don't hesitate to reach out. Best, Heart & Soil
