Nutrition is a key factor in a healthy lifestyle. Consumption of animal products in developed countries today is mostly limited to muscle meat consumption. Other animal products such as offal and endocrine are not as easily accessible, even though they are rich with important nutrients, and in some cases up to a hundred times more nutritious than meat from muscles.
Even though it is possible to acquire these animal products, you need to take special care in terms of origin, as a gland is not just a gland. It can be difficult to find the raw material which is free of unwanted cumulative increase and toxins such as hormones, pesticides, heavy metals, antibiotics and more.
“Throughout history people have used glandular nutritional therapy as a natural supplement. Usually they didn’t know it was glandular therapy, but they knew that ingesting organs and glands from animals or fish was good for the health and for preventing or treating specific ailments. They ate the liver, kidneys, heart, brain, eyes, pancreas, digestive tract walls, adrenal glands, thyroid glands, thymus gland, bone and bone marrow, and similar portions. Such animal tissues are concentrated sources of nutrients and specific tissues are especially supportive to their parallel tissues in the human body. ” See reference here.
Dr. Weston A. Price, who traveled and visited indigenous societies all over the world in the early 20th century to study their diets and nutrition, found that organ meats were eaten by these cultures across the globe and that they had high nice amongst all of them as a very important part of their diet.
If we concentrate on the glandular tissues primarily, then we know that they are rich in nutrients, inc. vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, polypeptides, enzymes and many other substances.
“Some of the pioneers in nutrition believed that raw glandular tissues contain intrinsic protein factors which are separate from, but synergistic with the vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, enzymes, co-enzymes, and fatty acids contained therein. These specific protein factors are organ — or tissue — specific. This means that the raw cellular material of a bovine kidney, for example, will be picked up from the lymph of the human kidney when ingested. These tissue-specific particles apparently “target” other cooperative and essential nutrients to the gland or organ for repair and maintenance. ” See reference here.
Since the early 1970s, scientific evidence has been accumulating which confirms the efficacy of the supplements.
These specific active factors are undisturbed by digestion and research indicates that the best way to benefit from its use is by “eating” the glandular. When we consume hormone-secreting glands and organs from healthy animals, we thereby assist the chemistry of our body, by giving nourishment to the corresponding glands. Glands are “super food” for the body and their consumption may result in the benefit of tissue building, repair and enhancement of the normal structure and function of the body.
