WHY DID ORGAN MEATS DISAPPEAR FROM THE WESTERN DIET?
It is interesting that for many thousands of years, humans obtained their nutrients from consuming entire animals from nose to tail.
Organ meats, known as offal, contain highly bioavailable vitamins, minerals, fats and protein. In fact, the nutritional profile of organs is far superior to muscle meat. So why did we start turning up our noses (and closing our mouths) from such a readily available and immensely valuable resource?
Americans shifted away from eating organ meats when industrial farming began in the late 1800s. By raising livestock in smaller, confined spaces, factory farming increased the supply of meat, resulting in a decrease in meat prices. At the same time, supermarkets arose and replaced many local butcher shops. Supermarkets did not like to stock organ meats because they were delicate, harder to transport, and also spoiled faster. Organ meats became less and less available in grocery stores.
On the other hand, skeletal muscle meat was now cheap, pre-packaged, and easy to prepare. So gradually organ meats fell out of favor with consumers because they did not taste as good as their muscle meat counterparts and took some skill to cook well.
Fortunately, organ meats are making a comeback as people are rediscovering this forgotten source of nourishment. Nose to tail eating is the most sustainable, responsible and healthy way of eating meat. It reduces waste and increases the amount of food provided by an animal.by modern science.
What are the Benefits of Beef Organs?
Organ meats are extremely nutrient dense. They contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, iron, and protein. Unlike many types of vitamin supplements on the market today which are often synthetic and not made from whole food sources, the nutrients you get from beef organs are completely natural, minimally processed, water soluble, and highly bioavailable.
Antler Farms® Beef Organs contains 100% pure beef heart, liver, and kidney.
Heart is a rich source of all the B vitamins, especially vitamin B12. It also contains many minerals such as phosphorus, zinc, copper, selenium, and iron. But the most exceptional characteristic of heart is that it contains a high level of coenzyme-Q10, also known as CoQ10 or Ubiquniol. The human body produces CoQ10 naturally, but its production decreases with age which can cause deficiencies.
CoQ10 is a compound that helps digest and break down food. But it also helps generate energy in cells and produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is involved in energy transfer within cells. CoQ10 is present in every cell of the body but it is concentrated in the heart, liver, kidney and lungs - organs with the greatest energy demands.
CoQ10 is absolutely vital in order to have healthy cardiovascular system.
Liver is the king of superfoods. It contains more nutrients, gram for gram, than any other food on the planet. It has an abundance of many important nutrients, including a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, protein and fat. Liver is known as “nature’s multivitamin” because it’s one of the highest quality and most nutritionally complete foods around.
Three nutrients, in particular, make liver an amazing supplement. First, liver is an excellent source of natural, pre-formed Vitamin A. This Vitamin A is an active form known as retinol, and it can be readily used by the body unlike plant-based Vitamin A. Secondly, liver is loaded with bioavailable vitamin B12. And finally, liver is a great source of dietary iron.
Liver also contains other B vitamins (B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, choline and folate), copper, phosphorous, zinc, manganese, selenium, enzymes, and protein.
Kidney has a similar nutritional profile to that of liver. It is rich in vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin D, selenium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium, and phosphorus. It also contains a concentrated form of protein with the full array of amino acids and omega 3 fatty acids.
Many people mistakenly believe that consuming organ meats such as liver and kidney is bad because of the presence of toxins. This is totally inaccurate. The liver and kidney function by filtering toxins and subsequently eliminating them from the body. Toxins are not stored in either the liver or kidney. Therefore, eating these organs is very beneficial and very safe.
However, it is important to choose your source carefully. It is well known that unhealthy cows, such as grain-fed animals from factory farms, yield similarly poor quality organs. Do not consume organ meats from industrial farming operations!

WHY IS THE SOURCE OF ORGAN MEAT PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT?
It is logical that anyone that consumes animals as part of their diet should ideally eat the healthiest ones. By being selective, you receive the most nutrients while taking the least health risks. But this practice is even more important when eating organ meats.
Most cows today are raised in factory farms, also known as confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). These animals are fed unnatural diets of grain, are forced to live in filthy, crowded conditions, and are injected with a host of veterinary drugs and chemicals for their entire life. It’s no surprise that these animals, and their organs, endure a lot of stress. The organ meats that come from these mistreated and stressed animals are known to have defects, such as fat deposits that are indicative of deeper physical problems. These organs are unacceptable for human consumption.
Studies consistently show that the meat and organs of grass fed is more nutritious than their grain fed counterparts. Antler Farms Beef Organs come from 100% grass fed, pasture raised New Zealand cows. We never use antibiotics, growth hormones or GMO’s, so you can be confident that you are getting the highest quality, most nutrient-dense beef organ supplement.
