A couple of weeks ago, a friend recommended desiccated beef liver pills as a supplement. I decided to try them. I noticed I felt more energized and like my sleep had improved, so I started sampling other organ meats.
One I had tried before is beef heart. Technically the heart is an organ and a muscle, so it tastes like steak. It has a lot of nutrition in it, including zinc, selenium, and CoQ10. CoQ10 is especially energizing and is an important antioxidant. I know native hunters ate the heart raw and warm right out of the buffalo believing it imparted special strength. I was able to find some at a local specialty grocer, and they will even slice it up for me to the appropriate size necessary for making jerky. I'm now on my second batch.
S and I have been enjoying it, but K hasn't tried it yet. Last night we ate a whole bunch of it, (Me and the dog 😅) and I had all these crazy dreams about hunting elk. My ancestral DNA has been AWAKENED!
I also picked up some marrow bones to enjoy. I hear it's good for the immune system. My next items to try are thymus, tripe, and kidney.
