Iron -- Red meat gets its color from its rich iron content. Grass-fed meat in particular contains high levels of bioavailable iron that is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Iron is an essential mineral found in every cell of the body. It’s important for all humans to have enough iron in their diet, helping to maintain energy levels, produce red blood cells, support cognitive and immune function and more. People who consume red meat typically do not experience iron deficiency.
Women need to consume about twice as much iron per day as men, since the iron-rich uterine lining is shed every month during menstruation. An average of 125 milligrams of iron leaves the body with each cycle. Naturally, women have a higher risk of developing anemia, especially when they avoid eating meat. Red meat contains much higher levels of iron than plant-based foods, and in particular the highly absorbable form known as heme-iron. Heme-iron is found only in meat and is unavailable to those following strict plant-based diets.

Furthermore, meat actually allows the digestive tract to absorb iron from plant-based foods that would not otherwise be absorbable. Plant-based iron is usually “locked” making it impossible for us to absorb into the blood. Even small amounts of meat can assist in unlocking these iron sources and allowing them to move into the bloodstream.

Pregnancy creates an even greater demand for iron, especially in the second and third trimesters. During pregnancy, the body actually has to produce new supplies of blood. Without adequate iron intake, there will be a shortage of red blood cells. If a woman is carrying more than one child, even more iron is needed. Morning sickness and other issues can arise as a result of a diet that is not supplying enough of this important nutrient.
Folate -- Folate deficiency can also lead to anemia. It’s necessary for the formation of blood cells and production of RNA and DNA, and is especially important during pregnancy. Proper amounts of folate in the mother’s body help ensure that the baby’s brain and spine form correctly. Pregnant women and those hoping to become pregnant need to consume higher amounts of folate every day, ideally beginning before conception occurs. Increased intake of folate should continue throughout breastfeeding. Liver is one of the most concentrated sources of folate. As with all organs, nutrients are found in much higher amounts when the meat is grass-fed.

Quality grass-fed meat is especially important when consuming organs or bones because any toxins the animal is exposed to during its life are mostly stored in these parts of the body. A three ounce serving of grass-fed bison or beef liver contains around 65% of the recommended daily amount of folate. Some people love to eat liver sautéed or made into paté. However, we find that one of the easiest ways to consume liver is to cut it into small cubes, freeze it and swallow like a pill each morning.
