venison

We have farmed and wild New Zealand venison. 

Venison is a lower fat, higher protein species. It is a good source of minerals such as:

  • iron - vital for transporting oxygen through the body
  • phosphorous - energy metabolism, movement (locomotion), cell membrane structure
  • zinc - critical for skin function and wound healing

Venison is an excellent source of vitamins, including:

  • thiamin - regulates energy metabolism, supports proper functioning of the nervous system
  • niacin - regulates energy metabolism
  • riboflavin - involved in energy metabolism, healthy eyes and skin, and facilitates the anti-oxidant effects of selenium
  • B6 (pyridoxine) - involved in many physiological functions (nervous system, blood, immune system, fat metabolism, hormone regulation)
  • B12 (cobalamin) - for making new blood cells
  • choline - appropriate fat metabolism, functioning of the blood and blood vessels

It is also very good source of glutamic acid, which is beneficial for gut healing.
