Consuming organs has been given a bad rap, but these superfoods should have you reconsidering them as part of your diet. Admittedly, they aren’t the most appetizing part of the animal, but they are the most nutrient dense. Hunter gatherers prized organs as the first part of the animal they would consume. Innately they knew these were a vital source of nutrition. Organs can truly be considered nature’s multivitamin!
Nutrients from organ meat are perfectly bioavailable and easily absorbed in the body. For instance, iron comes in two forms heme and non-heme. Heme iron is found is meats, organs, fish, etc. Non-heme iron is found in plants like greens, nuts, seeds and legumes. Heme iron is more easily absorbed into the body and can be used much easier than non-heme. Not all nutrients are created equal. Likewise, Vitamin A from animal sources is able to be digested and used by the body while Vitamin A found in plants needs to be converted into a usable form. Most people, genetically, do not convert Vitamin A from plants well.
