NOURISH YOUR WAY TO HEALTH & HAPPINESS WITH GRASS FED INTESTINE (W/ TRIPE) *
For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed (nose-to-tail) 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 needs in order to support and sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. We are now part of a world where our health is not wholly ours... many leading experts believe that pervasive gut issues (dysbiosis, sibo, leaky gut) have a lot to do with the problem. The solution is to restore and rebuild our gut health with proven anthropological ways that are backed by modern science... this includes the use of intestine and tripe.
WE EVOLVED EATING INTESTINES & TRIPE
According to the great John (Fire) Lame Deer, the eating of guts evolved into a contest. “In the old days we used to eat the guts of the buffalo, making a contest of it, two fellows getting hold of a long piece of intestines from opposite ends, starting chewing toward the middle, seeing who can get there first; that’s eating. Those buffalo guts, full of half-fermented, half-digested grass and herbs, you didn’t need any pills and vitamins when you swallowed those.”2
Beverly Hungry Wolf describes the preparation and consumption of a cow in The Ways of My Grandmothers, noting that her grandmother prepared the cow “as she had learned to prepare buffalo when she was young.” The lungs were not cooked, just sliced and hung up to dry. Intestines were also dried. Sapotsis or Crow gut is a Blackfoot delicacy made from the main intestine which is stuffed with meat and roasted over coals. Tripe was prepared and eaten raw, roasted or boiled. 3
Intestines are a profound source of intestine-specific building blocks, collagen / gelatin, glutamine and some organ-derived probiotics which are key for stabilizing, repairing and rebuilding a leaky gut.4 If you're like my tribe and you're into making homemade, simmered-with-love-for-3-days bone soup, try adding some pieces of intestines and tripe. You and your gut will be glad you did. Recent research shows that extracts of intestines provide growth stimulators that are needed to repair the lining of the intestinal wall. 5
Tripe is the common term used to refer to the stomach of ruminating (grazing) animals including cows, buffalo and sheep. The Sioux of the Great Plains were known to boil buffalo meat and wild herbs with heated rocks in a buffalo paunch... afterwards, they ate the paunch too. Tripe was so revered in European culture that it spurred a tiff between William the Conqueror and Phillip I, the King of France. This is also a great source of gut-specific building blocks, micronutrients, collagen / gelatin, digestive enzymes and some organ-derived probiotics. 6,7 Many have reported that eating tripe has greatly improved their digestive system. 4,8
NOTE: Cows have these huge stomachs which are populated with billions upon billions of bacteria, which begin breaking down the cellulose in the cell walls of plant fibers. The first three stomachs, the rumen, reticulum, and omasum, are concerned with breaking down the plant fibers in preparation for digestion. The work is mainly done by bacteria. True digestion finally occurs in the fourth stomach, the abomasum. Glands produce hydrochloric acid, pepsin and lipase which finish breaking down the food into all its constituent nutrients.9
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.* Grass Fed Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides pure bovine intestine (w/ bovine tripe) that's teeming with gut-specific building blocks, gelatin, glutamine and of course, organ-derived probiotics to nourish and support our own gut and digestive health.*

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.

BENEFITS OF GRASS FED INTESTINES (W/ TRIPE)
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 nourish urinary ailments, boost vitality and support overall kidney health... Pancreas was fed to people with digestive and endocrine problems... spleen was fed to people with immune and blood deficiencies...1 intestines, stomach (tripe) and other gelatinous parts provided concentrated amounts of connective tissue, gelatin / collagen, probiotics and other gut-specific proteins that are now absent from the modern diet.
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.10
INTESTINES (W/ TRIPE) & LIVER — THE ULTIMATE SUPERFOODS
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 and many other powerful nutrients that most people are deficient in. Grass fed liver also contains compounds that help the human liver function better. Other substances in liver reduce fatigue, improve digestive health and support 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 (thyroid, adrenal and gut included) by just nourishing their bodies with the fundamentals — Liver and Bone Marrow.*
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.*11 Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail nutrients.
