Beef Brain is packed with essential fatty acids including the omega-3 fats DHA & EPA, as well as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). It’s also a rich source of the micronutrients choline, copper and vitamins B2 (Riboflavin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B9 (Folate) and B12. All of these play a key role in either brain health or neurotransmitter production, supporting; focus, memory, mood, speed of thought and slowing brain aging. All the organs we source for our nose-to-tail line come from regenerative farms where the cattle are 100% grass-fed and free to roam on pastures. We gently freeze dry the organs raw to maintain as many of the nutrients and enzymes within them. Each jar contains 180, 500mg capsules (30 day supply).Find out more
DHA & EPA
Beef brain contains high amounts of DHA & EPA, beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation, supporting brain health and mood.
Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF)
BDNF is associated with the growth and protection of neurons (information messengers for the brain and nervous system). The healthier these nerve cells are, the quicker synaptic transmission can take place, resulting in faster physical response times and verbal recall.
Beef brain is an abundant source of Choline, a key nutrient that is needed for the formation of cell membranes and is required by your brain and nervous systems to regulate memory, mood and muscle control.
100% Grass-Fed & Regeneratively Farmed
All our organs come from a regenerative farm where the cattle roam freely on pasture consuming a natural diet of grass. This means our cattle graze outside for as much of the year as weather conditions allow. Also, they are completely antibiotic/hormone free and their diet contains no foods contaminated with fertilisers, pesticides or other artificial chemicals.
Eating whole animals, nose-to-tail, was a way of life for humans for the majority of our existence up until recent history. In the past people believed that consuming the organ of a healthy animal would strengthen and enhance the health of their own corresponding organ. For example, if someone was struggling with with cognitive function such as memory or focus, they would be fed brain. Interestingly, this is just now being validated by science. Research conducted at the University of Edinburgh in animal models has shown conclusively that when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs of the consumer in high concentrations. Therefore when the brain of an animal is consumed, the unique fatty acids, growth factors and micronutrients within it, which are key for cognitive function, travel to your own brain. Having a higher concentration of these compounds in your brain gives you the raw materials to support functions such as; focus, memory, mood and speed of thought.
Indigenous people also appreciated that animals gave their lives to ensure us as humans could survive and thrive so they left nothing go to waste. And because of their deep connection with the earth and their own bodies they intuitively knew just how nutrient dense organ meat is and would prise this over muscle meats. Fast forward to today and the immense powers of organs have somewhat been forgotten. What was once highly sought after is now rarely consumed and generally people no longer enjoy the taste. We created our nose-to-tail line to help people reintroduce these ancestral superfoods, loaded with nutrients in an easy to consume and flavourless way.
How to use
Consume 3- 6 capsules per day (1500-3000mg)
When to use
Take 3-6 capsules per day, ideally in the morning to flood your body with micronutrients for the day ahead. Each jar contains 180 capsules and each capsule is 500mg.
Ingredients: Grass-Fed Beef Brain (67%), Grass-Fed Beef Liver (33%), Bovine Gelatine (Capsule). *All our organs come from a regenerative farm where the cattle are grass-fed and roam on pastures.
Do the capsules taste of anything?
No. One of the reasons we created this product is because we understand that a lot of people struggle with the flavour of these nutrient dense super foods. Therefore we made sure that you get absolutely no taste when swallowing the capsules. They don't have any aftertaste either... don't worry you won't be doing any brain burps!
How large are the capsules / can they be broken and sprinkled into food?
The capsules are a medium size and we haven’t come across anyone so far that’s said they’re too big to swallow. However, if you would prefer to open them and add them to bone broth or other dishes this is absolutely fine.
Why isn’t this product certified organic like all of your other products?
Unfortunately when it comes to animal foods, the organic logo can be a bit of a smokescreen. Technically an animal can be classed as organic if they’re fed on unnatural but organic feed such as cereals or soy. We believe it’s best that animals, like humans, should be eating the foods they have throughout the vast majority of history before the food industry started introducing unnatural foods that are causing disease in modern society. To this effect, we believe cattle should be eating grass and in addition to this should be living outdoors for as much of the year as weather conditions allow. For this reason, we only use the organs from cattle that are free to roam on pastures. This means that our cattle eat a natural diet of grass, wildflowers and herbs and are kept outdoors for as long as possible. If they do have to be brought inside due to poor weather, they are fed preserved pasture. That said, the farm the cattle are from is also certified organic and therefore uses no pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics or hormones.
How much raw organs does it take to make one serving size of six capsules?
It takes roughly 15g of raw beef organs to create 6 capsules. Weston A Price and other leading nutritions in this field like Chris Masterjohn recommend consuming around 170-225g of beef liver per week. Our capsules will cover 90g of this split out on a daily basis to ensure the key micronutrients they provide are continuously circulating in your system. We recommend consuming one portion of organ meat (around 80-135g) on top of this per week.
What about prions disease?
Prions disease has never been reported in the country from which we source our Beef Brain and an active surveillance programme for this disease has been in operation since 1990 (which involves testing brain samples). All animals are inspected pre and post slaughter, and there are multiple spots along the chain where a problem would be identified. The World Health Organisation for animal health (OIE) has classified the country as a “negligible prions disease risk” country, which is the best classification a country can be given.
