NOURISH YOUR WAY TO HEALTH & HAPPINESS WITH ADRENAL GLANDULAR AND ANCESTRAL LIVING... *

For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed (nose-to-tail), and avoided, the things we needed for strength, health and happiness. Like the fertile ground that we once walked upon, we were a natural extension of this earth. In the modern world, we unknowingly struggle to fulfill our nutritional, lifestyle and behavioral needs in order to nourish biological resilience and thus sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. Adrenal related fatigue is a common condition affecting more than half of the population.2 The solution is to restore and rebuild our biological resilience with proven anthropological ways that are backed by modern science... this includes the use of adrenal glandular.

NOTE: Low adrenal function often accompanies low thyroid function, as many people with thyroid antibodies are likely to also have antibodies that attack the adrenals.3

In the early 1900s Dr. Weston Price wrote about the Indians of the far north taking a moose and favoring two small balls in the fat just above the kidneys. Here’s an excerpt from his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration… "The Indian would take and cut up into as many pieces as there were little and big Indians in the family and each one would eat his piece..." 4 Francis Pottenger, Jr. was a noted pioneer in the field who applied the findings and principles of Weston Price to successfully treat "exhaustion" with adrenal glandular.

Since the late 1890s, physicians have treated symptoms of adrenal insufficiency with adrenal cortex which was taken from the adrenal glands of animals. This treatment was found to be effective for reversing chronic fatigue, inability to concentrate, craving for sweets, hypoglycemia, allergies and arthritis. In the mid 1900s, Dr. John Tintera published his book Hypoadrenocorticism, documenting the successes he had with over 200 cases as a practitioner using adrenal glandular. 6,7

Adrenal glandular was shown to completely maintain adrenalectomized (the surgical removal of the adrenals) animals in good health for indefinitely long periods. It has been shown that it readily abolishes the severe symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, when allowed to develop, and concurrently restores the blood sugar and non-protein nitrogen levels to normal.8  The lives of adrenalectomized animals are prolonged and all the signs and symptoms of severe insufficiency are rapidly abolished by oral administration of the adrenal extract.

Whole food, nutrient dense organs and glands, can provide great benefit for those seeking targeted support in harmony with nature — the old fashioned way, the way that our early ancestors did.* Grassfed  Adrenal is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine adrenal (and liver) with adrenal-specific peptides, cofactors and enzymes to nourish and support one's own adrenal health.* Bear in mind that this is a "supplement" and should be used in parallel with ancestral nutrition, lifestyle and behavioral modifications to build and restore biological resilience. 

  • Pasture Raised In New Zealand & Australia
  • Grass-fed & Grass-Finished
  • Hormone, Pesticide & GMO Free
  • Absolutely No Fillers (or) Flow Agents

CONSIDER THE SOURCE

New Zealand & Australia seem like they were made for raising healthy animals. Their location and climate produce pristine conditions for cattle and sheep, and the farmers have uncanny expertise handed down for generations. New Zealand is unique among meat-producing regions in the world because its climate is moderate so the grass in the pastures grows fresh and grows green year-round which means the cows and sheep can eat the food that’s healthiest for them every day of the year.

Our nose-to-tail product line is always from grassfed, inspected animals born and raised without the use of pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. Health of livestock used for manufacturing in New Zealand & Australia is closely monitored by a world leading biosecurity system that is second to none, and is a global exemplar. Strict government licensing, auditing and certification procedures mean that our genuine New Zealand freeze dried products can be used with complete confidence in their origin, safety and efficacy. Freeze-drying preserves the heat sensitive vitamins, minerals and co-factors of components leaving the nutrients in the same balance as found in nature.

BENEFITS OF BOVINE ADRENAL (W/ LIVER)

Traditional peoples, Native Americans and early ancestral healers believed that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health of the corresponding organ of the individual. For instance, the traditional way of treating a person with a weak heart was to feed the person the heart of a healthy animal. Similarly, eating the kidneys of a healthy animal was believed to support urinary ailments and overall kidney health... Pancreas was fed to people with digestive and endocrine problems...1 and the adrenal gland was cut up into pieces and fed to all members of the tribe to support adrenal health.4 

Dr. Royal Lee, and other early nutritional pioneers, believed the degenerative processes of a specific organ / gland could be reversed by ingesting the corresponding raw materials specific to that organ / gland... that adrenal glandular tissue provided adrenal glandular specific building blocks to nourish, support and remodel one's own adrenal glandular.*   

 

LIVER —THE ULTIMATE SUPERFOOD

Whether from grassfed beef, bison, or lamb, grass fed liver is one of the most nutrient-dense, health promoting foods you could possibly eat. Hunters all over the world, for uncounted thousands of years, would eat the raw livers of the animals they killed. Lions and other predatory animals will also eat the liver first. Grass fed liver is particularly rich in vitamin B12, vitamin A, choline, folate and many other powerful nutrients in which most people are deficient. Grass fed liver also contains compounds that help the human liver function better. Other substances in liver reduce fatigue and improve brain function.*1

Many people look to targeted support (like heals like) while neglecting the very fundamental nourishment that governs our biology, health and well-being. It's no wonder that so many people successfully support organ and glandular related health conditions (adrenal, thyroid and heart included) by just nourishing their bodies with Liver.*  

The hormones that the adrenal cortex makes are all derived from our best friend–cholesterol. Yes, cholesterol is the precursor to all the valuable adrenal hormones that help us deal with stress, inflammation and trauma, and that help our body to heal. Therefore adrenal insufficiency (lack of adrenal cortical hormones) may stem from a healthy fat deficiency. So the first step is simple and logical: eat more fat, especially cholesterol-rich animal fat. One of these fats should come from liver to also supply vitamin A. The adrenal cortex cannot make adrenal hormones out of cholesterol without adequate vitamin A. 9 

 

ANCESTRAL WISDOM BACKED BY SCIENCE

Organs and glandulars were a staple of our early ancestors' diets as the ultimate superfood, for good reason. It turns out, this nourishing tradition is backed by science... "Radioisotope labeling studies in animals have shown conclusively that, when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs and glands in high concentrations. This research, done at the University of Scotland in Edinburgh, lends credence to the ancient practice of eating animal organs to help ensure health in one’s corresponding organs..." - Dr. Ron Schmid, ND.*10 Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail nutrients, including the adrenal glands.

 [NOTE: As with the thyroid gland, altered function of the adrenal gland is closely associated with depression. Often this dysfunction is the result of chronic stress—a major factor to consider in depression. It is critical to develop biological resiliency in parallel with positive ways of dealing with the stress of modern life.] 5
