Charlie said:I think, if you eat the kindeys, that helps the kidneys, if you eat the eyes, that will help your eyes. Is that correct? Just like eating thyroid gland, it supports the thyroid.
Charlie said:I dunno, that was the conclusion I came to at one point or other. Not sure if it's correct though, that's why I am asking.
Muscle meats, high in trytophan(sp?)... which does what? Build muscles.
Both adrenaline and serotonin will stimulate the release of cortisol, which mobilizes amino acids from tissues such as the large skeletal muscles.
Those muscles contain a large amount of cysteine and tryptophan, which, among other effects, suppress the thyroid.
The increased tryptophan, especially in the presence of free fatty acids, is likely to be converted into additional serotonin, since fatty acids release tryptophan from albumin, increasing its entry into the brain. Free fatty acids and increased serotonin reduce metabolic efficiency (leading to insulin resistance, for example) and promote an inflammatory state.” RP

For those of you who struggle with beef liver,
yesterday I bought at Whole Foods some Veal or Calf Liver.
Much milder and more tender.
Also about 2 to 3 times more expensive, though.
Jenn said:Tongue is a muscle that is also high in gelatin, like ribeye.
Jenn said:The heart actually makes anti cancer enzymes, so FRESH, healthy heart would still have those enzymes available.
Keeping organs in context....a cow has 1 liver...how many whole cows do you eat in a year? Just saying.....
jb4566 said:I heard that beef heart has a ton of collagen in it. Can anyone verify this?
Beef heart — because it is a muscle-- beef heart is somewhat similar to other cuts of meat like steak, ground beef, roasts, etc. although it is a heavier, more dense muscle than others though. But heart meat carries a bigger punch of protein and unique nutrients.
The heart is a very concentrated source of the supernutrient, CoQ10.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells, as well as optimizing the heart’s rhythm. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age and to be lower in some patients with some chronic diseases such as heart conditions, muscular dystrophies, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes, and HIV / AIDS.
CoQ10 has been shown to be very effective for improving cardiac function. Scientists have also found that CoQ10 provides benefits to other organs whose cells require this high-level energy metabolism such as the brain and kidneys, as well. In addition, prescription drugs such as statins deplete the body of CoQ10, so replacing this vital nutrient is extremely important for these people.
Beef heart also contains Selenium, Phosphorus & Zinc, along with essential amino acids that help build muscle, store energy and boost stamina and endurance. A meal of organ meats will charge you with extra energy, noticeable right after you eat it. The heart also contains twice as much collagen and elastin than regular meat, which is good for the skin and connective tissue, and actually helps prevent wrinkling and aging.
Because heart is such a dense muscle meat, it is a little bit tougher than other meats, but marinating the meat in an acidic-based marinade really helps to tenderize it and add delicious flavor as well.
Heart can easily be added to your favorite ground beef recipes for added nutrition with little change in taste. Get brave and try some great tasting grass fed headcheese for your next lean energy snack. Headcheese contains beef tongue and beef heart.
