Answers to some of the most asked questions that we think you will find useful 🙌🏼I've got more questions!
Are these the same as Desiccated Liver Tablets?
Great question! You will often see organ meats or organ supplements in the UK called 'Desiccated Liver Tablets'. Desiccated means 'to dry'.
However, our range of nose-to-tail supplements includes liver tablets but they not officially desiccated liver tablets.
This is because we freeze-dry our organs and in the case of liver we the end result is a nutrient-dense powdered liver that has all the nutrients intact - rather than being dried through heat.
Why should I take organ meat supplements?
We believe that for optimal health, we should be utilising natural real foods that are free from sugars, grains and inflammatory oils such as canola oil, rapeseed oil or sunflower oil.
When it comes to vitamins and minerals there are a host of synthetic options available that are packed with sugars, bulkers, seed oils, grains, thickeners, flow agents and chemicals.
All of which we just do not believe is essential or optimal for us as humans.
We understand that you can obtain essential vitamins and minerals from organ meats, however, for many the taste, thought of cooking organ meats or the lack of availability of 100% grass-fed organs can be a challenge.
By freeze-drying the organ meats and encapsulating them in a gelatin capsule we are making choosing a real food option easy, accessible, convenient and taste-free.
Organ meats also provide highly bioavailable forms of Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, Riboflavin, Copper and Iron - ensuring that the body can absorb and utilise these vitamins and minerals as nature intended.
I cannot swallow capsules!
No problem at all.
You can simply open the capsules and pop the powder into a smoothie or your food.
Are these organ support capsules suitable for the Carnivore Diet or the Ketogenic Diet?
Our entire range of nose-to-tail nutrition organ capsules are made from 100% freeze-dried desiccated organs and within a bovine gelatin capsule.
We do not use a vegetable hypromellose capsule (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a chemically produced vegetarian-friendly capsule) like many other brands!
What capsules do you use - gelatin or hypromellose?
At Hunter & Gather our aim is to create Optimal Health products that are free from sugars, grains and inflammatory oils.
We also, however, want to ensure that all of our products are as natural as possible.
In researching the difference between hypromellose and gelatin capsules, we made the decision to only use gelatin capsules for all of our nutritional support vitamin tablets.
Hypromellose is short for Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose and is chemically made. It is marketed as a vegetarian-friendly replacement for gelatin capsules.
Gelatin capsules are made from animal sources such as bovine and are keto, paleo and carnivore friendly with minimal processing.
What is in Hunter & Gather organ capsules?
Our nutritional vitamin & mineral support organ capsule pills are made with real food ingredients only which means we never use fillers, binder, flow agents or additives.

Our blend of heart and liver contains both raw freeze-dried Icelandic lamb liver and heart from wild roaming 100% grass-fed Icelandic lamb - encapsulated in a gelatin tablet.
Are the lambs grass-fed or GMO fed?
Not only are they grass-fed, but they’re also grass-finished!
The lambs that we use are from Iceland and are wild roaming and 100% grass-fed.
They are never fed any supplementary grain or soy-based feed.
Iceland has strict rules and regulations in relation to GMO feed and the lambs are therefore never fed genetically modified (GMO) feed.
Are the lambs antibiotic and hormone-free?
The lambs are wild roaming in the Icelandic mountains and are guaranteed free from any antibiotics or hormones.
What are the benefits of taking organ meat capsules?
Organ meats are a nutritional powerhouse packed with highly bioavailable vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, Vitamin A, Iron, Riboflavin and Copper.
For those that cannot stomach the taste, sight or smell of organ meats, a freeze-dried organ capsule locks in the benefits in a convenient and easy to take capsule.
Can I take freeze-dried organ capsules alongside your other Hunter & Gather supplements such as collagen and MCT oil?
Yes, you can take Hunter & Gather nutritional support organ capsules such as our liver tablet alongside both our collagen peptide protein powder and our 100% coconut MCT oil.
We personally have a morning Bulletproof / Evolve coffee with MCT oil & collagen powder alongside 2 capsules for Amy and 6 capsules for Jeff!

Are the Hunter & Gather organ supplements de-fatted?
No, we do not remove the fat from the organ meats that we use in our supplements.
We love great sources of fat and the fat within the freeze-dried organs enables you to utilise fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A more easily.
This ensures our organ supplements are a highly bioavailable source of vitamins and minerals.
What should I look for when buying organ meats?
Organ meats and offal are nutrient-dense and packed with vitamins such as B12, Vitamin A, and essential minerals like Iron and copper.
But, not all organ meats will be of the same quality and there are some key things to consider when shopping for organ meats - especially organ meat supplements, pills or tablets.
Some key points to watch out for:
- Are the animals that the organs have come from 100% grass-fed? Ensure that you buy organ meat from wild roaming grass-fed animals. This will ensure that the animals have not been fed GMO crops or grains. Do not just rely on the term "grass-fed". It must be 100% grass-fed or pasture for life certified to ensure no other feeds are utilised.
- Are the animals free from antibiotics and hormones? Ensure that the supplier can confirm that the animals were free from antibiotics and hormones.
- If buying supplements, ensure they are non-defatted so you can achieve optimal absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
- Is the organ meat in the capsules/pills freeze dried? Freeze Drying locks in the benefits of the organ meats and ensures that heat-sensitive biological activity remains.
What is the ‘like for like’ tradition to support human organ health?
Our tribal ancestors were clever fellows when it came to nutrition.
They were guided by ancestral wisdom and intuition - something many of us very distanced from in our modern lifestyles.
They had this theory that if you eat the organs of healthy animals that it provided support for your own organ health. I.e eating liver to support your liver and heart to support your heart.
With the help of modern-day science, we can see that they were actually on to something. With heart organ meat providing a whopping dose of CoQ10 (which supports blood pressure and heart health) and liver organ meat providing Vitamins A, Vitamin B12 and Iron, which all contribute to a healthy human liver - eating ‘like for like’ can really be beneficial.
