Beef organ supplements are a convenient way to make organ meat a regular part of your diet without having to worry about sourcing and preparing it. The capsules are tasteless and easy to swallow, making them an excellent alternative to fresh organs for the entire family.

In this article, I’ll talk about my favorite grass-fed beef organ supplement brands and product recommendations.

My top picks and their approximate price-per-serving — not accounting for promotions and coupon codes — are as follows (click the links to jump to my review of each product):

I’ve also written about the health benefits of consuming organ meat, and I encourage you to check out that article for a deep dive into the individual benefits of the various organs, including a detailed breakdown of their micronutrients.

If you don’t have time to read that article, just know that organs (and especially beef organs) are among the absolute best sources of highly-bioavailable and easily-absorbable minerals, vitamins, cofactors and coenzymes available. They’re packed with heme-iron, selenium (an antioxidant), choline, vitamin B12, retinol (the real vitamin A) and many other beneficial and essential nutrients.

What Are the Most Important Organs to Eat (Where to Start)?

My recommendation is to start with beef liver, because liver is the most nutrient-dense food on the planet, containing more than 25 vitamins, minerals and coenzymes that are crucial for brain health, energy levels and more.

Next on my list of recommended organs are heart and spleen, because they’re also rich in micronutrients and contain higher amounts of certain vitamins and minerals than liver. For example, the spleen has the highest amount of heme-iron of any organ, whereas the heart is rich in vitamin C and other nutrients critical for optimal heart health.

After heart and spleen, I recommend pancreas, because it’s the best source of enzymes (e.g., amylase, lipase, protease and trypsin), coenzymes (e.g., colipase) and peptides (e.g., gastrin-releasing peptide) to support optimal digestion.

Beyond that, you can consider other organ meat supplements (or combinations thereof) based on your individual health goals or ailments.

How to Choose a Beef Organ Supplement

I recommend products that use only ingredients from 100% grass-fed cattle.
I recommend products that use only ingredients from 100% grass-fed cattle.

When shopping for organ meat supplements, there are certain criteria you should take into account (as I explain in detail in my comparison of the best beef liver supplements).

Here’s a quick summary of all the factors I encourage you to consider when purchasing a supplement:

  • 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised and free of pesticides. Raising cattle exclusively on pasture yields more nutritious organ meat. Plus, it’s better for both the animals and the environment.
  • Potency. Make sure the product you’re picking delivers at least 3,000 mg of organs per serving to provide high enough concentrations of micronutrients.
  • Processing method. Stick with freeze-dried (desiccated) supplements instead of those that rely on a high heat manufacturing process.
  • Third-party testing. Make sure the brand you choose tests each lot for heavy metals, glyphosate and other contaminants. If in doubt, ask for a copy of the test report.
  • Other ingredients. I recommend sticking with products that don’t contain any additional ingredients or additives besides organs. Some brands use fillers, flow agents and other substances that are potentially irritating and which provide no nutritional value.
  • Servings. Make sure you’re getting at least 30 servings per bottle and compare the cost per serving between brands. Comparing the number of capsules per bottle can be misleading because some products require six capsules per serving while others require only four.
  • Eco-friendliness. Most dietary supplements come in plastic bottles because they’re cheaper to manufacture and ship. I prefer glass bottles with metal lids over plastic because it’s better for the consumer and the environment.
  • Manufacturing facilities: Make sure the supplements you purchase were manufactured in a GMP and FDA-certified facility. A lot of brands claim those certifications but use manufacturing partners that have only the warehouse operations but not the manufacturing facility fully certified. Using an FDA-certified manufacturing and encapsulation facility reduces the risk that you end up buying a product that contains expired ingredients that the manufacturing partner relabeled and sold at a cheaper price, in many cases, without the brand’s knowledge. The brands recommended in this article use only fully certified manufacturing partners.
  • Price. Cheap supplements usually contain cheap ingredients. So if you see a product that is significantly cheaper than others, there is likely something fishy. Since I started my own supplements company, I’ve learned that many products on the market contain low-quality ingredients that might already have expired before they hit the shelf. Apparently, it’s common practice among manufacturing companies to relabel expired lots and sell it to unknowing brands at a lower price. That explains why some beef organ complexes I’ve come across cost half of the premium brands.

While there might be other brands on the market that deliver organ meat supplements of equal quality, my three brands of choice are MK Supplements (my own brand), Ancestral Supplements and Heart & Soil. I’ve used them in the past, and I personally met Dr. Paul Saladino (the guy behind Heart & Soil) at an animal-based gathering in Costa Rica in 2021. 

MK Supplements Beef Organs

MK Supplements Grass-Fed Beef Organ Supplements.

MK Supplements is the brand I founded in 2021, together with my wife. Our goal is to offer the highest-quality beef organ supplements on the market, at an affordable price and made with eco-friendly packaging (such as glass bottles and metal lids).

All our ingredients are sourced from 100% grass-fed and grass-finished New Zealand cattle, and the final product is manufactured in an FDA-certified facility in the USA. In other words, the organs we use are of the same high-quality as the organs used by the other brands recommended in this review.

However, one big thing that sets MK Supplements apart is that we offer 45 servings per bottle instead of the 30 servings everyone else offers. That means you get 50% more product for the same price or less.


  • 100% grass-fed and finished.
  • Sourced from New Zealand cattle.
  • 45 servings per bottle.
  • Tested in a third-party lab.
  • Non-defatted, freeze-dried and non-GMO.
  • Uses glass bottles with metal lids.
  • Has a fulfillment center within the European Union.
  • Family-owned business.


  • Has a small product portfolio.

The downside to MK Supplements is our brand’s small product portfolio. As of this writing, we only sell four products:

Our Beef Organs supplement contains nature-identical ratios of the top five beef organs, including liver, heart, kidney, spleen and pancreas.

That’s because, if you think about, it doesn’t make much sense to consume equal amounts of each of those organs, considering how their size and weight differs in the live animal.

Enviromedica Organ Complex

Enviromedica grass-fed organ complex.
Enviromedica was one of the first beef organ meat supplements I purchased.

I first stumbled across Enviromedica while attending the Paleo f(x) trade show in 2018, and then came across the brand again while doing research for an article about the best spore-based probiotic supplements. Impressed by the company’s focus on ingredient quality, I decided to give their organ mix a try.

Much like the other products in this round-up, Enviromedica’s organ mix checks all the key boxes: it’s sourced exclusively from 100% grass-fed New Zealand cattle, it’s freeze-dried, and it’s manufactured in a GMP-certified facility.


  • 100% grass-fed and finished.
  • Sourced from New Zealand cattle.
  • Tested in a third-party lab.
  • Freeze-dried and non-GMO.
  • Price.


  • Uses plastic containers.
  • Only one organ mix is available.

While attractively priced, Enviromedica’s supplements ship in plastic bottles (which is the main downside of this product).

I should also mention that in early 2023, Enviromedica updated its formulation.

The original version of the company’s organ mix didn’t contain spleen, which is a rich source of iron. Instead, the old product contained more than twice the amount of liver as the others on this list.

Considering that liver is the king of organs, I didn’t think the omission of spleen was a major downside. However, I think most consumers appreciate the inclusion of spleen because it leads to a more diverse micronutrient composition.

From a dosage perspective, each 3,000 mg serving contains 600 mg each of freeze-dried liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen.

You can also buy Organ Complex on Amazon, but you won’t be able to use the discount code if you purchase it there.

Ancestral Supplements

I've tried most of Ancestral Supplements' products.
I’ve tried most of Ancestral Supplements’ products.

What I really like about Ancestral Supplements is the variety of high-quality organs the company provides. As of this writing, they offer 29 different products — mostly beef organ meats (and combinations thereof), but also fish eggs, blood, bone marrow, minerals and more.

All of Ancestral Supplements’ organs are sourced from 100% grass-fed New Zealand and/or Australian cattle (and sheep in some cases) and come in gelatin capsules.


  • 100% grass-fed and finished.
  • Sourced from New Zealand and Australia.
  • Tested in a third-party lab.
  • Freeze-dried and Non-GMO.


  • Uses plastic containers.
  • The large number of product choices can be overwhelming.
  • Owner has questionable ethics.

The challenge with the company’s massive product portfolio is that you may not know where to start. Unless you decide to purchase all 29 supplements the company sells, you’ll have to make a decision about which options give you the most bang for your buck.

I recommend starting with beef liver (which I consider nature’s ultimate vitamin) because it provides most of the vitamins and minerals you need on a daily basis. Then, you can add in other organs based on any health concerns you might have.

For example, if you have issues with your heart, consider supplementing with freeze-dried heart and spleen — a concept known as “like supports like.”

Alternatively, you could consider Ancestral Supplements’ beef organ complex, which contains liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen. 

The downside to combo products is that they contain only small amounts of the organs that have the most nutrients, especially the liver.

Shop Ancestral Supplements on Amazon

You can also buy directly from Ancestral Supplements, though you’ll pay for shipping on any order under $120.

Here’s a list of the bovine organ supplements the company currently sells:

  • Adrenal
  • Bladder Restore (bladder, kidney and liver)
  • Brain
  • Eye
  • Female Enhancement (reproductive tissue, liver and bone marrow)
  • Gallbladder
  • Heart
  • Intestines
  • Kidney
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Male Optimization (testicle, prostate, heart, liver and bone marrow)
  • Organs Mix (liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen)
  • Pancreas
  • Prostate
  • Spleen
  • Thyroid
  • Trachea

The only thing I don’t like about Ancestral Supplements is that its founder (Brian Johnson, aka the Liver King) lied to everyone, including his customers and followers, about his use of anabolic steroids.

Heart & Soil Beef Organs

Heart & Soil Beef Organs contains liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen
Heart & Soil Beef Organs contains liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen.

Heart & Soil was founded by Dr. Paul Saladino (aka Carnivore MD). What I like about the brand is that it offers clever combinations of desiccated beef organs based on individual health goals. 

For example, if your goal is to spark weight loss, then Heart & Soil’s Fire Starter might be the right supplement for you. Or if you want to improve your immune function, then the company’s Histamine & Immune supplement might be the right choice for you.

Of course, Heart & Soil also offers a classic beef organ mix that contains liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen.


  • 100% grass-fed and finished.
  • Sourced from New Zealand cattle.
  • Tested in a third-party lab.
  • Freeze-dried and Non-GMO.
  • Uses glass bottles with metal lids.


  • Doesn’t offer individual organ supplements.
  • Price.

The only downside to Heart & Soil is that the company doesn’t sell individual organs (i.e., they do not offer a dedicated beef liver capsule).

On the bright side, Heart & Soil uses glass bottles and metal lids for all of their products.

Shop Heart & Soil

You can also find Heart & Soil on Amazon.

Here’s a list of the bovine organ supplements that Heart & Soil currently sells:

  • Warrior (heart and liver)
  • Beef Organs (liver, heart, kidney, pancreas and spleen)
  • Fire Starter (suet and perinephric [kidney] fat) 
  • Bone Marrow & Liver
  • Whole Package (testicle, Liver and blood)
  • Gut & Digestion (tripe/stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver and spleen)
  • Skin, Hair & Nails (cartilage, bone marrow and liver)
  • Lifeblood (whole blood extract, spleen and liver)
  • Histamine & Immune (thymus, lung, kidney, spleen and liver)
  • Mood, Memory & Brain (brain, bone marrow and liver)
  • Her Package (reproductive organs, liver and kidney)
  • Joint Strength & Repair

Fresh Organ Meat vs. Freeze-Dried Organ Supplements

MK Supplements Beef Organs nutrients
Fresh organ meat and freeze-dried organ supplements have a comparable nutritional profile.

As both an advocate for organ meat consumption and the founder of an organ meat supplements brand, I’m often asked about the nutritional difference between fresh and freeze-dried organ meat.

If your goal is to get the absolute maximum amount of vitamins and minerals from organ meat, you’ll need to consume it raw. Cooking degrades (or destroys) some of organ meat’s heat-sensitive nutrients, such as most B vitamins. 

However, consuming raw organ meat comes with the risk of food-borne illnesses, so you have to be careful about food handling and trust your source. Plus, at the end of the day, consuming raw animal organs isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

If that’s true for you, then I recommend treating beef organs like a steak: brown the outside while leaving the center of the meat red (or at least pink).

In comparison, freeze-drying preserves most of the nutrients found in the organs. Based on the studies I’ve seen, the freeze-drying process results in a loss of less than 5% of an organ’s micronutrients, making freeze-dried supplements an excellent alternative.

Personally, I consume a combination of raw, freeze-dried and processed (e.g., liver pâté) organ meat several times per week, whereas my wife and kids stick to freeze-dried beef organ capsules almost exclusively.

Frequently Asked Questions

My kids consume freeze-dried organ meat supplements (mostly liver) every day.
My kids consume freeze-dried organ meat supplements every day.
Can an organ meat supplement replace a standard multivitamin?

Not only can organ meat supplements replace a standard multivitamin, they’re the far superior option — although you might not know that from comparing the labels.

That’s because standard multivitamin supplements often contain significantly higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals, and it’s easy to think that “more is better.”

Unfortunately, most of the nutrients in standard multivitamins are synthetic and have poor bioavailability, which means that your body doesn’t absorb them very well. On the other hand, the nutrients in freeze-dried organ meats are highly bioavailable and easily processed by your body, so you don’t need excessive amounts.

For this reason, I consider freeze-dried beef organ supplements nature’s ultimate multivitamin.

Who should use freeze-dried organ meat supplements?

I strongly believe that everyone can and should make fresh or freeze-dried organ meat a part of their diet. After all, our ancestors relied on organ meat as a primary nutrient source for millions of years. Heck, even my grandparents ate organ meat (and pig blood), growing up in Austria in the early 20th century.

By removing organs from modern diets, we have eliminated the best source of micronutrients available to us, leading to a higher rate of vitamin deficiencies and chronic diseases.

That’s in large part because plants aren’t a great substitute for organs when it comes to nutrient availability and absorbability. Plus, the nutrient content in plants has been on the decline, due to soil depletion and other factors associated with industrial farming practices.

Do organ meat capsules taste bad?

No, organ meat capsules are tasteless.

What is the difference between organ meat capsules from grass-fed animals and those from grain-fed animals?

Grain-fed cattle are often metabolically sick by definition. After all, cows are fed grains specifically so they’ll fatten up quickly. And we know that both humans and animals who are obese suffer from a host of metabolic issues and chronic diseases. 

That’s the primary reason why I recommend staying away from supplements that were harvested from grain-fed animals.

The second argument against the consumption of grain-fed beef is animal welfare. 

I don’t want to support an industry that keeps animals in feedlots, and which feeds them a diet that is inappropriate for their species.

Can you get sick from consuming freeze-dried organ meat supplements?

Consuming freeze-dried organ meats is generally safe. Just make sure you purchase from brands — such as the ones listed above — that have their ingredients tested by a third-party and that use GMP-certified manufacturing facilities. If you do, you can rest assured that you’re not exposing yourself to any food-borne pathogens.

Do the liver and kidneys store toxins?

While it is true that the job of the liver and kidneys is to filter toxins out of the bloodstream, that doesn’t mean toxins are stored in those organs.

For example, immune cells (called kupffer cells) inside the liver’s sinusoid channels engulf toxins before digesting and excreting them. The same principle applies to toxins filtered out by the kidneys.

That means it’s safe to consume both liver and kidneys, and you can rest assured that you won’t ingest any toxins by eating either organ.

Can consuming beef liver capsules cause vitamin A toxicity?

Liver is indeed a rich source of vitamin A, but unless you’re swallowing an entire bottle of liver capsules at a time there’s no real risk of ingesting toxic levels of vitamin A.

My wife and I take 3-6 grams of freeze-dried liver per day, and I often add fresh liver or liver pâté to one of my meals. Our kids get a third of that (usually in the form of capsules).

To put that into perspective, 3 grams of freeze-dried liver contains approximately 5,000 IUs of vitamin A. That’s about 116% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) and well within the “safe limits.” 

Organ meats are high in saturated fats and cholesterol. Does that increase the risk of heart disease?

The myth that saturated fat and cholesterol increase your risk of heart disease has long been debunked. I wrote about this in more detail here, but understand that studies have confirmed there is no correlation between consuming high amounts of saturated fats and cholesterol and any chronic disease

Does the consumption of organ meat supplements increase your risk of gout?

There’s a widespread belief that eating too much organ meat (and red meat, for that matter) can cause gout, and that people who suffer from gout should reduce their consumption of those foods because they have high levels of purine that can contribute to high blood levels of uric acid.

What most people don’t know is that over 60% of all uric acid is produced by the body and only about a third stems from the food you eat.

What’s important to understand is that most people who suffer from gout have issues eliminating uric acid via the kidneys rather than overproducing it.

Additionally, studies have shown that the increased consumption of foods that contain large quantities of purine usually leads to an increase of uric acid excretion

So if you’re metabolically healthy, there’s no need to limit your intake of red meat or organ meat supplements. If you currently suffer from gout, I recommend making the appropriate lifestyle changes to become metabolically healthy, so you can increase your intake in organ meats.

Are organ meat supplements good for iron deficiency?

Organ meat supplements (and liver and spleen in particular) are a great option if you suffer from iron deficiency or anemia, because both organs have high amounts of bioavailable heme iron that can support the body in making red blood cells.

Should kids consume organ meat supplements?

Yes, but in lower amounts than adults. As I mentioned earlier in this article, our kids (ages six and eight as of this writing) consume approximately a third of the amount of liver as me and my wife. 

What organ meat supplements do you recommend to support the immune system?

Liver, thymus, lung, kidney and spleen all contain specific amino acids and peptides that help support the immune system to better fight off allergens, viruses and other pathogens.

What organ meat supplements do you recommend to support cardiovascular health?

Beef liver and beef heart are excellent sources of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and other nutrients that can help support your heart.

Is organ meat more nutritious than muscle meat?

Yes! Pound for pound, organ meat has a higher nutrient density than muscle meat.

Are desiccated organ meat supplements keto/paleo friendly?

Yes, freeze-dried (desiccated) organ meat supplements are both keto and paleo friendly.

What organs can help lower elevated homocysteine levels?

Elevated homocysteine levels are often caused by low levels of vitamin b9 (folate), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. Liver and heart are excellent sources of those B vitamins and can help lower homocysteine levels.

What organ meat supplements do you recommend to improve energy levels?

Energy levels are closely related to optimally functioning mitochondria (the cells’ power plants), and optimal levels of iron to make red blood cells. I recommend liver and spleen because they’re rich in heme iron and the minerals that help make new red blood cells.

What’s the best alternative to beef organs?

If you’re allergic or sensitive to beef, or can’t consume beef for religious reasons, the best alternative is bison. I recently came across Folsom Point Nutrition — a company that specializes in freeze-dried bison organ supplements — and I recommend their Paleo-Plex bison organ mix to anyone who can’t consume beef.

Are organ meat supplements a good source of vitamin D?

While organs such as beef kidney and heart have some vitamin D, it might not be enough if you have low blood levels. If you’re vitamin D deficient and want to increase your levels, I recommend exposing your naked eyes and skin to natural sunlight daily (without wearing sunscreen or sunglasses), even when it’s cold and cloudy outside.

The Best Grass-Fed Beef Organ Supplements: Final Thoughts

Animal organs are a nutritional superfood and the most nourishing whole food source of micronutrients available to humans and other carnivorous species. As such, I firmly believe they should be at the center of your diet if you care about supporting your overall health and wellness.

  1. I can’t seem to figure out if you should just take an organ supplement so you get a little of everything or if you should just take liver. Can you help me better understand? I’m just now getting into the idea of taking supplements with organ meats and it just seems smarter to take an organ supplement, but everyone talks about liver. Any guidance is so appreciated. Thank you!

  2. Hi! Would you recommend also incorporating Cod Liver Oil for omegas, or do organ complexes sufficiently provide enough omegas? Also curious about minerals (magnesium, selenium, iodine, etc). Going to start with your products, but need to know how much more to add in. Thanks!

    • Hey Lindsey,

      I’m not a huge fan of fish oil supplements because it’s tough to tell if they have oxidized and become rancid. I rather eat meat, eggs and wild-caught fish to get my omega-3. Regarding minerals, the only one you might want to add (to optimize performance, reduce stress and improve sleep) is magnesium. Everything else is in organ meats.


  3. Hi Michael,

    Are all references to freeze dried organ meat referring to raw freeze dried organ meat?
    Are these sources of vitamin B’s utilized by children (people) who are homozygous for MTHFR mutations?

    • Hey Michal,

      yes, freeze-dried organ meat supplements are made with raw organs!

      As for your second question, the short answer is: yes. The long answer is:
      Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is an enzyme that converts Vitamin B9 (folate) into its active form, methyl-folate. Methylfolate is essential for a process called methylation.

      If you have an MTHFR mutation, you may not be able to properly methylate folate. Methylfolate is necessary to convert homocysteine back into methionine. As a result, inadequate MTHFR activity can lead to elevated homocysteine levels, which are associated with several health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, blood clots, pregnancy complications and more.

      Increasing your folate intake can help minimize the risk of developing such issues. Beef liver is an excellent source of folate. Each serving of our Grass-Fed Beef Liver contains 81.2 mcg (20% DV) of folate, among other essential micronutrients.

      • I’m still not understanding. I’ll try to ask a different way. If one does indeed have the MTHFR gene mutation and require methylated vitamins in order to metabolize vitamins properly; are organ meat vitamins naturally methylated? Or are they simply not a good choice for those with the gene mutation? Why take something one cannot get benefit from if one’s body has the inability to metabolize it to its benefit?

        • Hey KML,

          Beef organs don’t contain methylated vitamins but the micronutrients they contain support the “broken” methylation process, allowing your body to metabolize more than it would otherwise. In other words, the micronutrients in beef organs can mitigate some (but not all) of the issues associated with the mutation.


  4. Hey Michael,
    I was wondering if beef cattle and the intestinal supplements can contain GABA, which is a very important neurotransmitter. I am taking Ancestral intestines to assist with GABA and GERD and trying to prevent flare up of gastritis. Let me know what you think.

  5. Hi Michael,

    four questions:
    1) do you take this in replacement of a multi-vitamin?

    2) you mentioned kids. Do you just break open the capsule and split it that way? My son is 7 but my daughter is 3. Is 3 to young?

    3) my wife has hashimoto’s. Have you seen any case studies on the positive’s or negatives effects of Organ supplements with hashimoto’s?

    4) are you going to include cow brain for brain health in the future?

    thanks for your help

    • Hey Scott,

      1) Yes!
      2) They swallow the capsules and my 3-year-old niece chews them but you can also open them and pour the contents over your daughter’s food. For the young one, one capsules is enough.
      3) I’m not aware of negative side effects but, if anything, adding more nutrients to support the thyroid can only help.
      4) Yes, it’s on the roadmap.


  6. Hello Michael,
    Are you aware of any interactions with consumung organ meat supplements and blood pressure or cholesterol medications ?

    • Hey Arron,

      Unfortunately, there is no source of freeze-dried beef organs in the United States that meet your quality requirements (100% grass-fed, regeneratively raised, non-defatted). But even if there was, cattle in NZ can graze 365 days a year on fresh pasture. Domestic cattle eat hay in winter, which (one could argue) reduces their nutrient density a bit.


  7. Hi there,

    Reading through this article and there’s a lot of useful information…thanks!

    I’m thinking about tryin Enviromedica’s but in your review you said it doesn’t include spleen. After reviewing their nutritional label on Amazon it is showing spleen. Am I missing something or was it newly added?


    • Hey Jenna,

      Thanks for pointing that out. It looks like they must have updated their formula. However, knowing how much the raw materials for each of those organs cost, there is simply no way they can offer that product for $40 without cutting corners. I know some raw material suppliers who do shady things and brands might not even be aware that they’re getting expired ingredients. I will update the article and make a note of that.


      • Michael, any further opinion regarding the Enviromedica Grass-Fed Organ Complex ?
        It looks like they are still including spleen @ the $39.95 price point.

        • Hey Craig,

          I’m still skeptical about their pricing, knowing how much the raw ingredients cost. Maybe they’re not making any (or very little) money with the product or maybe they’re cutting corners somewhere. It’s hard to tell from the outside.

          I realized (after Environmedica’s CEO reached out to me) that I screwed up. Long story short, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Enviromedica’s ingredients (which is why I recommend their in my article). I didn’t read your comment carefully enough and assumed you were asking about another brand that sells similar products (on Amazon) for much less than any of the other manufacturers. I get asked about that particular brand a lot and respond with muscle memory. So, apologies for that.


          • I like MK Supplements best but that’s also because it’s my family’s brand :) Personal preferences aside, you can’t go wrong with Heart & Soil and if you don’t mind plastic bottles, Ancestral Supplements is a reasonable alternative. Note that all of those three brands use the same raw ingredients (in different ratios in the case of MKS). So it boils down to pricing, ratios, packaging and brand affinity.

            Does that help?

  8. hi, I’m going to begin using these. but I do not see a review on folsom point. thats who I am going to start with. I already ordered, but it seem these products are more reasonably priced. Folsom point claims bison is better than beef, and that they treat the environment and animal properly ( although I think killing animals is bad).
    any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.


    • Hi Neil!

      Well, my article is titled “Best BEEF Organ Supplements” so including a Bison supplement in the list wouldn’t really make sense. But I did include a mention of Folsom point in the FAQ. Whether or not Bison is better (more nutritious than beef) is debatable but Folsom Point certainly makes a great product.


  9. Hi Michael, I recently read this article (link below) in which the author attributes numerous health problems she had to consuming liver tablets and organ meat. You have addressed a number of the claims in your article (eg Vitamin A toxicity), but there is a specific claim about copper toxicity that you do not cover. What is your view on this? Many thanks (article here: https://eatbeautiful.net/why-to-not-eat-organ-meats-purines-uric-acid-copper-vitamin-a-toxicity/)

    • Hi Jonathan!

      While there are certain conditions (e.g., Wilson’s disease) that can cause the accumulation of certain minerals (e.g., copper), I have never seen any documented cases of issues related to the consumption of one ounce of fresh (3 grams of freeze-dried) liver per day. Anecdotally, I’ve been taking consuming higher amounts than that for years without any issues. I think the author of the article you linked had several pre-existing conditions that confounded her findings. Maybe copper and Vitamin A influenced her issues but I wouldn’t even bet on that.
