”When people start to re-introduce organ meats…we find that we don’t need to take as many supplements.”

”We are a nutrient-deficient society…But we are not calorie deficient…People associate nutrient deficiency with, ‘I’m not eating enough food.’ Well, it’s not that at all. It’s that we’re eating the wrong foods.”

”What is the source of where we are getting these nutrients? And in some cases, when you are swallowing these nutrients, you are getting them in synthetic forms.”

”What I love about getting your nutrients from food is that it’s already…in the form that is most bioavailable.”

”Eating your nutrition versus swallowing..and this is really, really key…one is working with your body. The other is complete guesswork.”

”The B vitamins support every biological function in the body.”

”More times than not, it’s [anxiety] actually a nutrient deficiency, and a lot of times it’s tied to B vitamins.”

”When we talk about organ meat, we’re not saying just pick one. We’re talking, really focus on that whole animal.”

”Start with Pluck…Pluck is an ancestral superfood powder. It’s got freeze dried powdered liver, heart, kidney, spleen, and pancreas.”

”You can add it to anything, and it will make the food taste better.”
