The answer? It depends - but for most people, science tells us that organ meat is a great addition to our diets.
Organ meat is loaded with nutrients such as iron and both fat soluble and water soluble vitamins. While a great source of vitamin B, the key stars of the show include vitamin A, D, E, and K2 which require the presence of fat to be absorbed. This makes eating organ meat a perfect opportunity to benefit from the wide vitamin range present, as organ meats contain healthy fats essential in moderation to a well-rounded diet.
Organ meat also contains alpha-lipoic acid which acts as an antioxidant protecting key portions of the cell, such as the mitochondria, which is essential in converting nutrients into energy.
Lastly, organs are packed full of important minerals, often missed in a modern day, mass-produced diet. These include magnesium, selenium, and zinc.
When one thinks of organ meat, they may envision the hard earned elk liver after the years' bull harvest, but cattle yield excellent organ meat as well!
