Offal is an underestimated source of good health

Many people we have tested with our analysis tool where indications are given of imbalances regarding minerals and vitamins, we have seen a couple of common traits that repeat themselves, and which we find interesting. It turns out that the vast majority of people need to eat more offal.

In Scandinavia, the most common offal used is tongue, liver, heart, lung, blood and kidney, mainly for processed meat products such as liver pate, charcuterie sausage, sausage and blood pudding. Offal was once a highly valued and appreciated food source.

Today, the tradition of eating offal has unfortunately been forgotten by many. Offal is particularly rich in B vitamins such as vitamin B12 and folate. It is also rich in minerals, including iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc, and important fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K. Last but not least, animal protein provides you with all nine essential amino acids that your body needs to function efficiently . It is not difficult to understand that offal is very healthy and nutritious for us and should therefore be prioritized as an important part of the diet.

Today, many people only eat chicken fillet and think that it is the healthiest thing you can eat, but there is actually less nutrition in the fillet than in a whole chicken. If you are going to eat chicken, it is better to buy a whole chicken that can be cooked in the oven, or cooked in soup.

Importance of collagen

The Sami population is particularly good at preparing reindeer meat broth and eats this often. From stock cooked on the bones, you get a rich source of collagen. Many people think that collagen is only good for skin and joints, but it is important for the eyes, stomach/intestines, teeth, nervous system, muscles, detox function, blood circulation, fat burning and more.

The interesting thing is that we can also measure the collagen level and usually the vast majority have low levels, while those with Sami background have more optimal levels, which can be explained by the fact that they have preserved the tradition of boiling broth. and cooking from the whole animal. Not least, this is a more sustainable way of living.

We can recommend supplementing your diet with our Collagen with pine bark, which is made from chicken cartilage, as it is most similar to human cartilage and is therefore well absorbed by the body.
