💪 IMMUNE SUPPORT #3: OFFAL (Isn’t Awful)!

health benefits of organ meats


Immune Support #3: Offal (Isn’t Awful)!  Please don’t run for the hills… offal is NOT awful!! Offal comprises the organ meats from functional internal organs – liver, kidneys, heart and those from tongue, oxtail and intestines. These meats were prized by our ancestors – they ate the offal and left the lean muscle meats for their animals to eat!

We seriously must get our aversion to offal, because these shunned foods are amongst the most nutrient-dense SUPERFOODS on the planet… rich in true ‘pre-formed’ vitamin A which can be used directly by the body, iron, zinc – all critical for immune support.

It’s important to remember that we can only obtain true vitamin A from animal products. The carotenes found in plant-based foods need to be converted to vitamin A in our intestine – young children, older people and anyone with digestive issues can’t make this conversion.

So banish your fears and include at least one and preferably two servings per week to support your immune system – and we don’t need much, as little as two or three ounces per serving make a huge contribution to immune support and it couldn’t be simpler to make at home.

Our risk for contracting communicable diseases like the Covid-19 virus increases when our immune system is weak and a weakened immune system is largely the result of a less than optimal diet and an unsupportive lifestyle. Even as we are experiencing this current crisis, we are also seeing underlying epidemics of chronic diseases of every kind – diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, degenerative, digestive and autoimmune disorders across the globe. These conditions too, are largely diet and lifestyle-driven and they are preventable.

We need to act now

We have robust science to show us that what we eat has never been more important for our health and, because all life is inextricably connected, for our planet. The Real Food Solution will help you to discover the power of real food as medicine for better health.. for you and for our planet.

Crises like Covid-19 are a test our humanity… let’s stop queuing up for loo rolls and start creating a strong, resilient foundation of immune health… together.

Stay safe, stay informed and get empowered, Izabella
