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: beef organs
Five of the most treasured organs from regeneratively raised, grass fed, grass finished New Zealand cattle in one amazingly powerful supplement.
Liver, Heart & Kidney
100% Grass Fed Liver, Heart, and Kidney provide nutrients and peptides that support optimal brain, heart, reproductive, and immune health, as well as histamine metabolism and exercise performance including vitamins A, D, E, K2, B12, CoQ10, riboflavin, folate, biotin, choline, anserine, carnosine, taurine, L-carnitine, DAO (diamine oxidase), LEAP-2 and many others.
Pancreas & Spleen
100% Grass Fed Spleen and Pancreas contain many nutrients that support energy, mitochondrial function, athletic performance, and overall digestive health including heme iron, B12, and selenium, peptides such as splenin, splenopentin, and tuftsin involved in the immune response, and digestive enzymes like lipase, trypsin, and amylase.
Nutrients in beef organs
Key Nutrients in Liver, Heart & Kidney:
- Contains highly bioavailable forms of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K2, which play critical roles in overall immune and bone health.
- Robust amounts of riboflavin, folate, B12, and choline which are essential for red blood cell formation, as well as immune, brain, reproductive, and cardiovascular health.
- Rich source of copper, biotin, and CoQ10 which are crucial for overall metabolism, mood, and energy, as well as health of skin, hair, and nails.
- Muscle-specific nutrients such as anserine, carnosine, taurine, and L-carnitine which supports brain, immune, and cardiovascular health, as well as muscle recovery.
- Liver expressed antimicrobial peptide (LEAP-2), an antimicrobial peptide also involved in glucose metabolism.
- Hepcidin, a peptide directly involved in iron metabolism as well as the innate immune response.
- Kidney-specific peptides that reduce the concentration of oxalates in the urine and calcium deposits in the renal tissue, as well as preventing free-radical induced damage.
- Dwarf open reading frame peptide (DWORF) found in heart tissue improves cardiac function and contractility.
Key Nutrients in Pancreas & Spleen:
- Lipase, protease, trypsin, and amylase enzymes to help break down macronutrients such as fat, protein and carbohydrates.
- Colipase, trypsin, and pancreatic peptides support the activation of enzymes needed to break down protein and help with food allergies by improving digestion.
- B12, needed for proper cell division, red blood cell production, neurotransmitter formation, and optimal exercise performance.
- Selenium, a critical mineral for thyroid function (iodothyronine deiodinanses) and immune health/antioxidant defense (glutathione peroxidase, thioredoxin reductase).
- Heme iron, crucial for brain health, energy, and exercise performance, as well as immune function.
- Niacin (B3), essential for cardiovascular health, mood, cognition, and energy.
- Peptides exclusively found in splenic tissue such as splenin, tuftsin and splenopentin which enhance immune function.
- Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) of the pancreas supports digestive processes by stimulating the release of enzymes, bicarbonate, and fluids.
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 predecessors cherished all parts of the animals and would rarely let any go to waste. They instinctively knew that specific organs such as the liver, heart, and kidney contained essential nutrients for optimal health and overall vitality.
In The Fat of the Land, Vilhjalmur Stefansson states, “While meat of any kind is in great demand, it is interesting to note that the following are favorite cuts… The liver of any animal…” He additionally noted that the heart and kidneys were especially cherished by the Mackenzie River Eskimos, observing, “The kidneys are usually given to the children, somewhat as if they were candy.” Throughout his travels he noted the importance of eating the whole animal and highlighted the value these foods brought to these thriving cultures of the Northern Arctic Circle.
Other scholars of traditional Eskimo cultures have also described the value of specific organ meat such as the liver - noting hunters often would expose the internal organs of a seal after a fresh hunt and eat pieces of the liver raw. Consumption of liver was particularly emphasized for those who were ill within the tribe,
“The eating behavior of sick people may be exemplified by the case of a 30- year-old woman who complained of headache and depression… She told me she was feeling tired, nauseated, and irritable. She had lost her energy and felt weak and cold… The meat she received included a piece of liver and part of the backbone and hips. The woman ate the liver at once, sharing a bite with her five-year-old child, and cooked the rest as soup which was shared with her family and me. Later that night the woman was smiling and told me she was feeling much better.” - Dr. Kirsten Borre from Medical Anthropology Quarterly, October 2009.
Weston A. Price was a Canadian dentist who dedicated his life to the study of various cultures found throughout the world and the relationship between nutrition, dental and physical health. In his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, he noted that tribes free of disease and in robust health had a great deal of animal products and organ meats in their diet. Of the Eskimo of Alaska, Price noted that while the bulk of their diet consisted of large animal life from the sea, they selected organs and tissues with “great care and wisdom.” The North American Indians additionally treasured the use of organ meats. Price noted in his travels that these Native Americans valued the different organs and tissues for “providing a defense against certain of the affections of the body which we speak of as degenerative disease.”
Longtrail Snowbird of the Blackfoot tribe also describes the traditional consumption of many different organs from animals,
“Raw morsels of the meat would have been snacked on while the butchering was taking place. You as a participant might have been offered raw liver, kidney, eyes, belly fat, testicles, parts of the stomach, marrow from leg bones…” - Native American Technology and Art. Essays on Native American Life and Relations With Non-Natives 1600-1850 by Longtrail Snowbird
Throughout our history as humans, eating nose to tail has always been part of our ancestral heritage and provided our predecessors with unparalleled nutritional value.
