Have you heard? Pasture raised/grassfed beef is extremely healthy for the environment and you! Have you tried our Ancestral Blend from Horstmann Cattle Company, LLC ? It's delicious! and one of our popular picks among staff and customers at Nutrition Stop.
Ancestral Blend conveniently incorporates the nourishing properties of organ meats into a modern diet. Packed with all the nutrients found in organ meat, our 90% Lean/10% Fat Ground Beef is mixed with 20% Organ Meat. The organ meat consists of the liver, heart, and kidneys.
Organ meat is often higher in nutrients.
It doesn’t get a lot of attention, but alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has been shown to have health benefits.
It protects mitochondria — the part of your cell that produces energy — from damage, and helps turn nutrients into energy. Research indicates it can be helpful for neuropathy (or nerve damage) associated with diabetes.
Your body makes alpha-lipoic acid. However, production decreases as you age. You can find the nutrient in foods like spinach, tomatoes, broccoli and organ meat (beef hearts and kidneys contain the most).
Contains high levels of iron
*Iron is necessary to make hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen throughout your body. Meat and fish contain heme iron, the easiest form for your body to use.
*Rich in B vitamins
Organ meat is rich in B vitamins, especially B6 and B12, which serve multiple important functions in your body. B6 is crucial for breaking down proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It also supports healthy immune function. B12 is necessary for making brain and nerve cells, DNA and red blood cells.
