Organ meats are the offal of an animal, as opposed to muscle meat which is 99% of what you see in grocery stores today. They include livers, hearts, brains and intestines, and in this thread I will walk you through a few reasons you should seek out these little nutritious nuggets
Organ meats are chok-a-blok full of nutrients, and pound for pound are more nutritious than muscle meats. Most organ meats are exceptional sources of numerous vitamins and minerals such as B-Vitamins, iron and zinc.
Approximately 10 million people in the US alone suffer from iron deficiency. One of the main symptoms of iron deficiency is fatigue and lack of energy. If you've noticed you have low energy, eating organ meats, especially liver, will help increase your blood iron count.
Organ meats are also one of the best sources of choline, which is an essential nutrient. Though your liver can make small amounts, you need to obtain the majority of choline through your diet.
Choline is a nutrient that has important roles in liver function, healthy brain development, muscle movement, and your nervous system.
Beef liver is a bonafide superfood and is coveted across many civilizations for its nutrition density. It has a concentrated source of Vitamin A, which helps everything from your skin to your vision.
It is also rich in a variety of B vitamins, especially B12, which is not present in a plant-based diet. Beef liver is also one of the best sources for folic acid, which is used for creating healthy red-blood cells.
Beef heart is also one of the most nutritious cuts of meat. It contains every single essential amino acid as well as being a good source for zinc, selenium and phosphorus.
Beef heart also has close to double the elastin and collagen when compared to more traditional cuts of meat, which is great for joints and having healthy skin.
This is just a small selection of SOME of the benefits of SOME of the organ meats. If you liked this thread, more are coming your way!
