Are Humans Naturally Carnivores Or Herbivores?

Expert Reveals Truth

By LA Muscle on 06.06.2019 04:57 pm


Amid the growing interest of people in vegetarian or vegan diet, some experts have raised questions if we are really fit for such zero-meat approach. Did humans come from plant-loving primate species and are returning to what its ancestors previously loved to eat?

In a recent article posted on Bulletproof, Nora Gedgaudas, a keto and ancestral nutrition specialist, explains the physiological makeup and nutritional requirements of early humans. Comparing modern human physiology to its ape ancestors, she said chimps’ digestion heavily relied on bacterially-based, fermentative processing of plant-based diet. However, humans lack the ability to fully extract nutrients.

Nora also said that the digestive systems of pure herbivores are simply different from ours. We instead rely on the extraction of nutrients from the animals we consume. Even the humans who first walked on Earth enjoyed the blood, meat and organs of animals. Our human digestive system much more closely resembles that of a carnivore than any herbivore. Our very physiological design clearly indicates that animal products are an integral part of human health.

Early humans also consumed plants. However, they were wild, largely fibrous and hard to digest. Human ancestors ate raw plant tubers and roots, which were not digestible and lacked proper nutrient content and essential fatty acids. Humans evolved by not relying on plant-based foods.

Nora emphasized that “our species was never, ever even close to being vegetarian, much less vegan. Vegetarianism and veganism are modern-day experimental diet inventions. Such approach never existed even for humans’ most distant primate cousins. Vegetables were also a food having a far greater cost-to-benefit ratio on multiple levels, also taking into account the relative potential toxicity of wild plants and their comparatively poor digestibility, nutrient availability and caloric value — even cooked.”

She closed with “plant-based food can only be considered as a secondary food source for early humans. Honey used to be among the few natural organic food consumed on early Earth. Fruits were also much smaller and mostly seasonal during the time of human ancestors compared today.”
