What Can Lamb Hearts Do For You?

Health conscious people would eat more lamb hearts if they knew the benefits and how to prepare them into a delicious meal.

In “The Doctor’s Heart Cure” Dr. Al Sears, M.D. writes that the co-enzyme CoQ10 is a “powerful anti-oxidant present in every cell in your body.

CoQ10:1. Destroys free radicals before they can damage your cell membranes.
2. Prevents arteriosclerosis by reducing he accumulation of oxidized fat in your blood vessels.
3. Eases heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
4. Reduces chest pain and improves exercise tolerance in patients with chronic stable angina.
5. Regulates the rhythm of the heart rate.

Most people, especially very active or older people, don’t get nearly enough CoQ10. Where does natural CoQ10 come from? Organ meats from grassfed animals are the foremost source. Lamb hearts from grassfed lamb contain “up to ten times more CoQ10 than the organs of grain-fed animals,” according to Dr. Sears. Of course, you can buy CoQ10 supplements in pill form (and maybe you should), but why—when you can get it naturally by enjoying grassfed organ meats?

Some folks don’t know what to do with organ meats and they’re scared to try. Go ahead, be bold. Try this simple recipe if you dare. It’s good. The kids will like it too, especially if you don’t tell them in advance what they’re eating!
