Awesome offal!

Organ meats from healthy animals offer high levels of critical nutrients and protein in a highly available, active form that our bodies can access and use quickly and efficiently. The operative word here is 'healthy'.

Organs such as the liver and kidneys perform critical filtering and cleansing functions in the body. So you're after organs from the healthiest animals you can find! Feedlots (grain-fed) or animals raised in sheds will not yield super-healthy organs.

All the organs we offer come from the whole, pasture-raised animals we source from regeneratively-managed farms. These animals are vigorous, robust and genuinely free ranging and their diets are diverse and complex resulting in prolific gut flora and healthy organs.

About liver

Liver is rich in protein, low in calories and packed with essential minerals and vitamins but it's particularly important because it supplies vitamins in easily accessible, 'active' forms such as vitamin D3, B12, folate, choline and retinol ('active' vitamin A). By contrast, plant sources of vitamin A require us to convert them during digestion in order to use them. And, of course, liver is rich in iron, supplied in the haem form which is helps maintain adequate stores of iron, particularly important for women.

About kidneys

Kidneys pack a real nutrition and protein punch and are rich in B12, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamine (B1), Selenium, iron and vitamin K12 which ensures calcium is deposited in the right places in your body. B12 improves energy and blood cell formation, B2 aids energy production in your cells, B1 makes ATP, our cell's energy source, Selenium is an antioxidant and iron helps transfer oxygen from the lungs to the tissues.

About heart

Heart, unsurprisingly, is good for your heart. This is because hearts are a good source of the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and also rich in B-complex vitamin (B2, B6, and B12), the B vitamins that protect against heart disease. Those B vitamins also help to maintain healthy blood pressure, reduce high cholesterol, form healthy blood vessels and reduce the risk of Alzheimers, dementia, depression and anxiety. Heart is also rich in folate, iron, zinc, and selenium.

About tongue

Tongues are super nutritious, loaded with iron and zinc to boost your immune system and choline and vitamin B12 to help your nervous system.
