Hi everyone! Learning and reading more about paleo, and I came across Dr. Ron's Organ Delight supplements. Has anyone tried them? Do you think they are worth taking, if you are not a very adventurous meat eater? Thanks in advance!

There are a lot of spelling mistakes and typos in your advert: hetic, recieving, caffienated, thats, etc. Why do we need more than meat and fresh produce? I think it's tacky to advertise in your first post on paleohacks.

Even with your BCAA supplement, I dont think you are in danger of having excess protein in your system if you are only consuming 60 grams of protein daily. 60 grams is pretty low IMO--unless of course, you only weigh 60 pounds.

I hate the taste. I was using them and switched to bone broth and mineral rich foods instead. I did add them to broth for awhile and they were much more palatable. Could not do it in water. Salty broth masks the taste better.
