Organs are a vitally important part of a nutritious and balanced ancestral diet. Think of organs as adding a “vitamin-mineral” supplement to complete and balance the diet.
Organs provide concentrated, special forms of bio-available, essential fats, vitamins and minerals required for proper organ function and overall nutritional balance.
We recommend feeding between 5-10% of the diet as secreting organs, so that organs and liver are included as 10-20% of the overall diet to maintain long-term health. Certain individuals can easily and healthfully consume more than this % in the diet, others are highly sensitive to these potent foods and experience digestive upset when overfed these foods.
Please do not skip or avoid these important foods – organs are an essential part of a balanced, nutritious diet.
