What’s so great about beef heart?

Beef heart has very concentrated levels of CoQ10, B vitamins, folic acid, Selenium, Phosphorus, Zinc, and Amino Acids that help burn fat, store energy and boost stamina and endurance.
CoQ10 that’s found in beef heart is highly protective against cancer and is found only in animal foods. CoQ10 is a substance present in every cell in the body and essential for cell production, we need a lot for good health and can get 40% of our daily requirement with just 1 serving of heart. It protects our heart, improves problems with our gums, and has an affect on many different diseases

  6. Dehydrate at 155-160 degrees (or according to your dehydrator's manufacturers instructions) until all pieces are dried to your personal preference.
  7. Enjoy!
Notes
We have 2 dehydrators THIS one is budget friendly and great if your are just starting out. We also have a very large commercial dehydrator because we do large volumes of preserving.
