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.”
