Default supplements to replace eating organ meats

I've been eating Paleo now for awhile but I feel like I'm missing an important part of the diet by avoiding organ meats, especially the B vitamins. Between limited access to quality organ meat, taste, and general squeamishness, I end up just eating muscle meat all the time.

I'm thinking about adding desiccated liver powder (in gel caps if the taste is bad) and maybe thymus powder. Also, I might add brewer's yeast which seems to have a lot of the vitamins and minerals that are lacking in muscle meats. Does anyone here use any of these three? How about other recommendations?

Liver tabs are tricky, though I've heard that Beverly International's are top notch.

Tricky in what way? Finding good quality, grass-fed liver?

Dr G. recommends beef liver and beef thymus powder from http://www.leviticus11.com

I've just received an order of both. I'll add it to my PWO shake and see what happens. I ordered the adrenal gland powder but they were out of stock and will be for a few weeks.

Experiment with the amount, especially the adrenal powder when you receive it.

Coffee + adrenal powder in the morning (only take the adrenal powder in the morning as it contains cortisol) can be very stimulating. Adrenal glandulars contain cortisol and adrenaline/noradrenaline (epinephrine/norepinephrine), a little can go a long way.

I start people at 1/4 teaspoon a morning and work up from there.

If anyone is interested in the liver softgels I use for my patients (and have my wife take), PM me.
