5 Unexpected Benefits of Eating Beef Organs

5 benefits of eating beef organs

Organ meats are the most concentrated source of just about every nutrient we need to thrive. When consumed daily, the abundance of nutrients found in organ meats often come with a wide range of unexpected health benefits. Here are 5 of the most common ...

1. Happier Hormones

Beef liver is full of 'retinol' which is the active form of Vitamin A. This vitamin is crucial for the production of the youth-associated hormones which are Pregnenolone, Progesterone and DHEA. Three key substances are required for the production and support of these hormones, and they are: T3, Cholesterol, and Vitamin A. If any of these are lacking, we cannot produce these protective, anti-stress hormones.

Fun Fact: Hormones can never be 'balanced' without sufficient bioavailable Vitamin A.  

2. Healthier Bones

Liver is a good source of vitamin K2 which helps with calcium balance and is an essential nutrient for bone health. This vitamin helps direct calcium into the bones and keeps it out of the arterial walls. It plays an essential role in bone metabolism, and studies suggest that it can help prevent osteoporosis and fractures.

Fun Fact: Most people consuming a traditional Western diet get almost no vitamin K2.

3. Glowing Skin

As mentioned above, liver is great source of Vitamin A which has long been known to support skin health. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, so it protects skin cells from oxidative stress like damage from UV rays. Studies show retinol can slow signs of ageing, encourage healthy skin cell production, clear, soothe and heal acne and smooth wrinkles.

Fun Fact: Liver is a good source of copper and glycine that contribute to maintenance of collagen under the skin, reducing the presence of wrinkles.

4. Sharper Brain

Organ meats like liver and kidney offer some of the best sources of choline which is the front runner for nutrients associated with brain health. Choline is so imperative for a healthy, functioning brain that deficiencies are associated with the most common forms of neurodegenerative disease. It is used in many chemical reactions in the body including the nervous system to support the development of normal brain functioning.

Fun Fact: Beef organs also contains copper, iron and selenium which are three key nutrients required for optimal brain function.

5. Detox Support

Molybdenum is a trace essential mineral found in high amounts in organ meats, especially in liver. Molybdenum acts as a coenzyme supporting the conversion of sulfites to sulfates and supporting the metabolism of medications and alcohol. The buildup of sulfites is toxic to the body and too much can be dangerous. So no need to load up on lemon detox drinks as beef organs are up to the task.

Fun Fact: A little over an oz of liver provides the entire RDA for molybdenum.
