For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed (nose-to-tail) the things we needed for strength, health and happiness. Like the fertile ground that we once walked upon, we were a natural extension of this earth. In the modern world, we unknowingly struggle to fulfill our nutritional needs in order to support and sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. We are now part of a world where our strength, our health and our happiness are not fully ours anymore... but it doesn't have to be that way!
Whole food, nutrient dense organs can provide great benefit for those seeking targeted support in harmony with nature — the old fashioned way, the way that our early ancestors did. Our Grassfed Beef Organs is a whole food dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen. These whole foods contain proteins, peptides, enzymes and cofactors exclusively expressed from their respective organs as well as powerful nutrients that nourish our entire being. Our mission is our purpose... putting back in, what the modern world has left out.

New Zealand seems like it was made for raising healthy cattle. Its location and climate produce pristine conditions for cattle, and the farmers have uncanny expertise handed down for generations. New Zealand is unique among meat-producing regions in the world because its climate is moderate so the grass in the pastures grows fresh and grows green year-round which means the cows can eat the food that’s healthiest for them every day of the year.
Our nose-to-tail product line is always from grassfed, inspected animals born and raised without the use of pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. Health of livestock used for manufacturing in New Zealand is closely monitored by a world leading biosecurity system that is second to none, and is a global exemplar. Strict government licensing, auditing and certification procedures mean that our genuine New Zealand freeze dried products can be used with complete confidence in their origin, safety and efficacy. Freeze-drying preserves the heat sensitive vitamins, minerals and co-factors of components leaving the nutrients in the same balance as found in nature.

Traditional peoples, Native Americans and early ancestral healers knew that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health of the corresponding organ of the individual. For instance, the traditional way of treating a person with a weak heart was to feed the person the heart of a healthy animal. Similarly, eating the kidneys of a healthy animal was believed to support urinary ailments and overall kidney health... Pancreas was fed to people with digestive problems... and spleen was fed to people with immune and blood deficiencies.
Organs were a staple of our early ancestors' diets as the ultimate superfood, for good reason. It turns out, this nourishing tradition is backed by science... "Radioisotope labeling studies in animals have shown conclusively that, when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs and glands in high concentrations. This research, done at the University of Scotland in Edinburgh, lends credence to the ancient practice of eating animal organs to help ensure health in one’s corresponding organs..." - Dr. Ron Schmid, ND
Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail organs.
— Liver is nature's most nutrient dense superfood and it's the only meaningful source of vitamin A (also rich in heme iron, B12 and folate). Supports liver health, supports energy demands and is a key player in metabolism and methylation* —
— Heart is the richest source of naturally occurring coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 supports heart health, supports blood pressure health and is a nutritional powerhouse for mitochondria* —
— Kidney is a potent bio-available source of naturally occurring selenium and B12. Supports strong kidney health, aids in detoxification pathways and the antioxidant defense system, helps defend against infection and supports immune health* —
— Pancreas is nature's all natural source of enzymes. Supports a strong functioning pancreas, supports blood sugar signaling and contributes an abundance of key enzymes for optimal digestion.* We are not what we eat... we are what we digest —
— Spleen is nature's most concentrated source of heme iron. Supports strong immune and allergy health, and aids in the metabolic health of our blood cells. Well known for it's ability to build blood* —
FACT: The pancreatin in one serving provides approximately 125,000 NF units of amylase, 115,000 of protease, and 20,000 of lipase.
FACT: In addition to these benefits, high quality beef organs provide all the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, K & E) in highly usable forms, and provides meaningful amounts of folate, copper, zinc, chromium and hyaluronic acid.
Six capsules provides the equivalent of one ounce of fresh, raw whole bovine organs that you’d get from your local farmer (or) butcher. Our Grass Fed Beef Organs is a whole food dietary supplement that can be taken with (or) without food (even though it technically is food). The suggested use is 6 capsules a day or as directed by a healthcare professional — for added support, the dose can be doubled. This supplement can be consumed all at once, or divided servings throughout the day.
Most customers tolerate our supplements without incident; however, approximately 5 to 10% of customers (usually with an autoimmune condition) may experience a detoxification reaction. Detoxification reactions go by many different names including healing reactions, healing crises, cleansing reactions (or) Herxheimer reactions with hallmark symptoms of nausea, headache, lethargy, dizziness and other flu like symptoms. In this instance, detoxification reactions are generally an indication that detoxification pathways in the body are back online... cells suddenly have an opportunity to release an even greater than normal quantity of stored toxins, metabolic wastes, pathogens and unwanted material.
A detoxification reaction is more likely to occur when starting with the full suggested serving size of 6 capsules per day. If you know that you are sensitive to supplements and/or you have an autoimmune condition, you may wish to start slow when adding this product to your current regimen. Tolerability can be greatly improved by starting with just 1 capsule a day and increasing by just 1 capsule every couple of days — this method may take a full two to three weeks to achieve the desired serving size of 6 capsules per day.
If tolerability remains an issue with just 1 (or) 2 capsules a day, another product (without liver) may be a better match for you. Of the customers that experience tolerability issues with our Beef Organs product, many do wonderfully with the Beef Heart or Bone Marrow. If you're having trouble tolerating the Beef Organs, and you know that you need the powerful health promoting nourishment that only nose-to-tail organs can provide, send us an email... let us know your reason for incorporating theses prized organs / glands in the first place so that we can try to help with a suggestion.
Okay, you're convinced! You're going to start incorporating beef organs in your routine because, well... you're educated now... you understand, just as our early ancestors did, that they provide superlative health benefits that are missing in our modern diets. The next step is sourcing it. It's important that you source the highest quality because not all organs are created equal. Consider the source, and consider the following:
If you're going to pick just one ancestral supplement to start with, make it our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER... unless you need targeted support with another specific organ system (see below). If you are going to pick two supplements, our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER and our GRASS FED BEEF ORGANS provide complementary and synergistic nourishment. If you can add a third supplement, GRASS FED BONE MARROW fills fat soluble nutrition gaps and provides the fat soluble activators that nutrition giant Dr. Weston Price extensively wrote about.
On the other hand, if you're looking for targeted organ support, you may be interested in our GRASS FED BEEF HEART to support heart health (or) our GRASS FED THYROID to support a struggling thyroid (or) our GRASS FED SPLEEN to support spleen and immune health... you get the picture.* We have a nose-to-tail product line that can be found on our "Products" page. If you can't find what you're looking for (or) you're not sure what you're looking for, send us an email and we'll do everything we can to help.
— "You know it’s good for you (eating organs), intellectually, but the hunger often isn’t there." — Mark Sisson
Our genome has evolved with the nourishment of nose-to-tail dining since the beginning of time. Grass fed beef organs are especially rich in preformed vitamin A, vitamin B12, coenzyme Q10, bio-available heme iron, selenium and enzymes. The health and happiness effects of consuming beef organs are far reaching. Beef organs (i.e. liver, heart, kidney, pancreas, spleen) strengthen and support the corresponding organ of the individual for improved immune function, robust collagen, improved energy to name a few.
Not all organs are the same. Look for a high quality beef organs that comes from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows that are hormone, pesticide and GMO free. If considering a supplement, look for one that is ultra pure (without binders, fillers (or) flow agents) and look for the freeze dried variety as these have been shown to optimally preserve nutritional factors and co-factors.
[ NOTE: Beef Organs, also referred to as offal, variety meats and pluck, refers to the internal organs and entrails of a butchered animal. In the wild, animals go for the liver and the bone marrow first, followed by the heart, kidneys, pancreas and spleen. There's clearly something special about this stuff. ]
SAFETY OF GRASS-FED, PASTURE-RAISED LIVER
High quality liver from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows is completely safe to consume. There is a common misconception about the liver being a storage depot for toxins which couldn't be further from fact. One of the many roles of liver is to filter toxins and send them to be expelled — usually in the urine via the kidney. In other words, the liver does not hold on to toxins, it expels them. The liver does act as a storage depot for vitamins, minerals and glycogen. Rest assured, liver from healthy animals is safe, nutritious and time-tested.
Need more assurance... Recall that liver is rich in choline, folate and B12. A diet rich in these nutrients supports methylation. Amongst other things, methylation is central to detoxification. What's more, is that without adequate choline (most Americans) fatty deposits may accumulate that contribute to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Downstream issues include compromised detoxification, high cholesterol and memory problems. The take home message is this... grass-fed, pasture-raised liver is not only safe to consume but one could say that its nutrients are required to support and optimize our own detoxification pathways. Enjoy!
All animal cells contain some cholesterol; therefore, all animal foods have it, including ours. Most of our nose-to-tail foods have less than 1/10th of just one gram of fat per capsule... this is hardly anything. There is approximately 4 mg of glandular derived cholesterol per capsule to nourish cell membranes, to support hormones (including the synthesis of vitamin D), to synthesize neurotransmitters and to support overall nerve function — just to name a few.
Here are some simple, verifiable scientific facts...
Cholesterol level reflects chronic inflammation in the body; the more inflammation you have, the higher your total cholesterol tends to be. Your body makes cholesterol to "patch up damages" from this ongoing inflammation.
Need more assurance.. Recall that foods like liver, bone marrow and other organs / glands give us the vital nourishment that we need for energy metabolism, a strong immune system, a properly functioning endocrine system and to heal and be healthy. When our biology works better, there's less need for our own liver to ramp up the manufacturing of more cholesterol. That's right, this is where most of our cholesterol comes from... our own liver makes it and sends it for repair purposes! The take home message is this... grass-fed, pasture-raised organs and glands are not only safe to consume but one could convincingly argue that these nutrients are required to support and optimize our own blood cholesterol and overall heart health. Enjoy!

Our "About Us" page is chalked full of Ancestral tenets that support mitochondrial and inflammatory health. Improve mitochondrial health equals improved energy. Improved inflammatory health equals better cell signaling and healthy cholesterol status.
