THE FORGOTTEN VALUE OF ORGAN MEATS

When it comes to eating meat, the typical Western diet is limited to muscle tissue while the rest of the animal is largely ignored. This is the opposite of what our Paleolithic ancestors did and in contrast to what traditional cultures around the world still do.

Traditionally, organ meats, also known as offal, were never discarded. In fact, they were highly prized parts of an animal that were consumed regularly. And for good reason – organ meats, especially liver, are some of the most nutrient-dense foods on Earth.

We can take our cue by looking at nature. When predators such as lions and wolves bring down their prey, they consume the organs first, starting with the liver. Instinctively they know liver and other organ meats provide the greatest source of nutrition (muscle tissue is the last to be consumed).

Though organs are not what one generally thinks of when one hears the term superfood, they certainly qualify. Organ meats contain a variety of nutrients that support our bodies’ optimal health and function in concentrated amounts. The nutritional benefits are now being confirmed by modern science.

What are the Benefits of Beef Liver?

 

One common misperception is that liver should not be eaten because it contains toxins. This is completely false. The liver’s function in the body is to neutralize toxins. It does not store these toxins; it flushes them from the body.

Beef liver contains more nutrients, gram for gram, than any other food on the planet.

Abundant in many important nutrients, beef liver delivers a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, protein and fat. It is one of the highest quality and most nutritionally complete foods around, period.

Liver is loaded with vitamins A, B12 and iron. One serving of Antler Farms® Beef Liver (3 grams) is equivalent to one ounce of raw beef liver. One serving contains about 5,000 IU of Vitamin A, 14 mcg of Vitamin B12, and 2mgs of iron. It also contains other B vitamins (B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, choline and folate), copper, phosphorous, zinc, manganese, selenium, enzymes, and protein.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VITAMIN A TOXICITY?

Consuming excessive amounts of a vitamin, known as hypervitaminosism, can be harmful. As a fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin A accumulates in your own liver and can cause serious health issues when stored at high levels.

Vitamin A toxicity can be caused by a one-time megadose (acute toxicity) or through excess consumption over a period of time (chronic toxicity). Symptoms of acute toxicity include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and vision problems. Symptoms of chronic toxicity include anorexia, hair loss, dry skin, and fatigue.

The FDAs recommended daily value for vitamin A is 5,000 IU for adults. The upper limit of vitamin A set by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences is 10,000 IU per day.

Acute toxicity requires a one-time megadose of 500,000 IU or more. Chronic toxicity can occur starting with a daily intake of 25,000-50,000 IU for several months. The intake of natural vitamin A from whole foods is moderate at best, and therefore unlikely to cause any problems.

The vitamin A content from taking one daily serving of our liver supplement provides the recommended daily value, is very safe, and would not lead to Vitamin A toxicity. One serving of Antler Farms Beef Liver (3 grams) is equivalent to one ounce of raw beef liver, or about 5,000 IU of Vitamin A. Unless directed by a medical professional, we do not recommend taking more than the recommended dose.
