“Compared to the muscle meat we are used to eating, organ meats are more densely packed with just about every nutrient – including heavy doses of B vitamins such as: B1, B2, B6, folic acid and the very important vitamin B12. They are also loaded with minerals like phosphorus, iron, copper, magnesium, iodine, calcium, potassium, sodium, selenium, zinc and manganese and provides the important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
