What are the most nutrient-dense foods? The answer is organ meats. Organ meats have 10-100x more concentrated nutrients than muscle meat.

Organ meats have more bioavailable nutrients, such as:

• Iron

• Zinc

• Selenium

• Vitamin A

• Vitamin D

• Vitamin B12

• Magnesium

• Vitamin B1

• Vitamin B2

• Alpha-lipoic acid

• Vitamin B6

• Phosphorus

• Choline

• CoQ10

• Vitamin K2

Plants lack certain nutrients, such as:

• Vitamin B12

• Vitamin D3

• DHA (omega-3 fatty acid)

• Vitamin A (the active form called retinol)

Plants also have phytates, which are anti-nutrients. They block certain nutrients, such as:

• Iron

• Calcium

• Magnesium

• Zinc

However, it’s easier to get certain nutrients from plants than meat. This is why you would want to combine meat with plants in your diet.

Nutrients that are easier to get from plants:

• Phytonutrients

• Vitamin C

• Vitamin E

• Vitamin K1

• Potassium

• Magnesium

If you don’t like to consume organ meats, you can get them as supplements. You can also get certain types of hamburger that have organ meats blended in.

Thanks for watching! I hope this helps explain what the most nutrient-dense food is and why you should eat more of it.
