The New Primal: Introducing New Taste Sensations

The new Primal
We’ve long been fans of the grass-fed beef jerky produced by The New Primal. The company began modestly with founder Jason Burke creating his own beef jerky in his home kitchen. That plan, however, nearly ruined his marriage because his wife complained her clothes always had a smoky, BBQ scent she couldn’t stand. So Burke moved production to a catering kitchen and restored harmony in his personal life, allowing him to continue growing his business without the risk of divorce on the horizon.

These 9 foods will boost immunity naturally with zinc
Zinc is a crucial part of a healthy immune system. Get your fix with these foods
Meat and poultry served on a chopping board.

When most people focus on eating well, they focus on the overall diet and large macronutrients like protein, fat, and carbohydrates. However, depending on the foods you gravitate toward and how varied your diet is, it’s still quite possible to have deficiencies in certain micronutrients—the key vitamins and minerals your body needs for optimal health and function—such as zinc.

Zinc deficiencies are particularly common in vegans and vegetarians, but many people would benefit from increasing their dietary intake of this immune-supportive mineral. As an essential mineral, zinc must be consumed through the diet because the body cannot manufacture it endogenously. Moreover, zinc is a necessary component of over 300 enzymes in the body. It is heavily involved in immune support, wound healing, building DNA and biological proteins, smell, taste, and fertility. Foods high in zinc, such as oysters, are also great foods to help prevent hair loss, as zinc plays a key role in protein production and hair follicle cell differentiation.
