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.5
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.
