Summary: Taurine (a sulfur-containing β-amino acid), creatine (a metabolite of arginine, glycine and methionine), carnosine (a dipeptide; β-alanyl-L-histidine), and 4-hydroxyproline (an imino acid; also often referred to as an amino acid) were discovered in cattle, and the discovery of anserine (a methylated product of carnosine; β-alanyl-1-methyl-L-histidine) also originated with cattle. These five nutrients are highly abundant in beef, and have important physiological roles in anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory reactions, as well as neurological, muscular, retinal, immunological and cardiovascular function. Of particular note, taurine, carnosine, anserine, and creatine are absent from plants, and hydroxyproline is negligible in many plant-source foods. Consumption of 30 g dry beef can fully meet daily physiological needs of the healthy 70-kg adult human for taurine and carnosine, and can also provide large amounts of creatine, anserine and 4-hydroxyproline to improve human nutrition and health, including metabolic, retinal, immunological, muscular, cartilage, neurological, and cardiovascular health. The present review provides the public with the much-needed knowledge of nutritionally and physiologically significant amino acids, dipeptides and creatine in animal-source foods (including beef). Dietary taurine, creatine, carnosine, anserine and 4-hydroxyproline are beneficial for preventing and treating obesity, cardiovascular dysfunction, and ageing-related disorders, as well as inhibiting tumorigenesis, improving skin and bone health, ameliorating neurological abnormalities, and promoting well being in infants, children and adults. Furthermore, these nutrients may promote the immunological defense of humans against infections by bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses (including coronavirus) through enhancing the metabolism and functions of monocytes, macrophages, and other cells of the immune system. Red meat (including beef) is a functional food for optimizing human growth, development and health.
About two years ago, I was overweight with a big belly and chronic acid reflux. I know acid reflux might seem like a mundane health issue, but for those who have suffered from it you know how debilitating it can be. My doctor prescribed me a prescription strength anti acid and told me the catch was it could cause stomach ulcers in the long run. I decided not to take it and instead continued to suffer until I made a serious change in my diet. I started with a paleo approach, then keto and eventually thanks to discovering Dr. Baker’s work I am now dedicated to a fully carnivorous diet. My acid reflux is cured (and when I told my doctor, they still suggested I take the anti-acid). I’ve lost 70 lbs and am leaner and have more energy then I’ve had in a very long time. I don’t hear acid reflux talked about enough when it comes to dietary issues resolved through a carnivore approach, and I know Dr. Baker also suffered from this condition
so I wanted to share my experience for others who might be struggling with it. Also, thanks to Dr. Baker’s passion for regenerative animal agriculture I am now a proud supporter of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association. I think it’s important for people following a carnivore approach to reach out to their local beef suppliers to learn more about the industry and how we as consumers can help. Thank you Dr. Baker for all of your hard work spreading this crucial health information and best of luck in your athletic pursuits coming up!!
