Cultures across the globe value, cherish, and relish in the consumption of organ meats. Organ meats are not just a traditional food, but they are valued by chefs, with sweetbreads (the thymus), kidneys, and liver being found commonly at high end restaurants. A once important and necessary part of the diet of humans has been up to this point, difficult to obtain. Traditional Foods Market’s Essential Multi-Glandular returns the missing organs and glands to our diet.

Glandular tissues are rich in nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, polypeptides, enzymes, and many other substances. When we consume hormone-secreting glands and organs from healthy animals, we can help balance our body chemistry by giving nourishment to our glands. Thus, glandular food increases the tone, function, and/or activity of the corresponding gland.*

Our proprietary blend includes grass-fed liver (bovine), grass-fed brain (bovine), grass-fed lung (bovine), grass-fed heart (bovine), grass-fed kidney (bovine), grass-fed spleen (bovine), grass-fed lymph (bovine), grass-fed pancreas (bovine), grass-fed thyroid (bovine), grass-fed parotid (bovine), grass-fed thymus (lamb), grass-fed ovary (bovine), grass-fed testes (bovine), and grass-fed adrenal (bovine), with no other ingredients.

Our glandular formula is sourced from animals that graze free-range on the pristine New Zealand grasslands, free of pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. A veterinarian inspects the animals for any evidence of disease; after thorough inspection, glandular harvesting may proceed or the tissue is destroyed and not used.

“I would like to offer thanks and gratitude to the souls of the animals that gave their lives so that we could be nourished.” – Ramiel Nagel, Owner, Traditional Foods Market

Glands as a Traditional Food

The valuing of the organs and glands by traditional cultures is not haphazard. When lions kill their prey, they go for the liver, heart, kidneys, and lungs first. According to the field studies of the preeminent Dr. Weston Price, organ meats were eaten by traditional cultures across the globe. Yet in the modern world, it can be extremely difficult to obtain high quality organ and gland foods for regular consumption.

Indigenous cultures found the organs and glands in the animals they hunted to be both vital and essential to their health. Two of the three sacred food categories that Dr. Price found that produce a high level of health and oral health, good bone structure, and immunity to disease are the organs and glands of land and sea animals.

Dr. Price observed traditional societies including glands in their diet routinely, and he wrote: “The Indian knows where these special life-giving substances are to be found and he like the wild carnivorous animal is wise in food selection. He accordingly selects the liver, brain, kidneys, glands. Part of every day’s food for the Indians includes eating some of these special tissues. The parents provide these for the children and teach them their special values.”

For hundreds of years, problems affecting the health of glands, organs, and tissues were traditionally treated with consumption of raw glands, organs, and tissues. Using gland foods to support health is still one of the cornerstones of Traditional Chinese medicine. Today, glandular supplements in powdered form have become a popular choice in lieu of a raw product (we still encourage the consumption of fresh or frozen organs and glands; however, we suspect many of you may have a hard time obtaining or consuming organs like brain and lung).

Why Use the Essential Multi-Glandulars?

A gland is defined as a secretory organ. The internal secretory organs of the body are the endocrine glands. Other non-secretory organs such as the heart, spleen, and brain are also referred to as glandulars, or protomorphogens.

Our endocrine system is composed of the pineal gland, pituitary gland, hypothalamus, thyroid, thymus, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries, and testes. These non-glandular organs also produce hormones: heart, kidney, digestive tract, and fat.

Glands produce hormones that regulate bodily functions such as metabolism, immunity, growth, and sexual development. The entire body suffers when they malfunction. Glandular and organ extracts are indicated when a person’s endocrine system is not producing enough of a specific hormone or when an organ is weakened, and is not functioning optimally.*

Not only do whole organs possess the nutrients required by the gland, but they contain the vitamins, minerals, peptides, and DNA material present in the gland. These are thought to act as “cell signalers,” initiating cell survival and growth as well as establishing metabolic communication. Combination glandular products are considered especially effective in supporting healthy cell growth being that their components such as amino acids and gland peptides offer synergistic targeting effects for other nutrients.* The use of multiple glands within a formula provides needed nutrition for specific endocrine axis pathways. Focusing on single gland deficiency solely when the body is not functioning at its best, may miss subtle glandular interrelationships.*

Doseage: Take between 1/2 teaspoon to 1.5 teaspoons daily. More can be taken under direction of a health care provider. The suggestion is to just eat the powder. It can also be mixed with water or hidden in other items. It has a strong taste but people find that their body cannot get enough of the organs and glands and so they keep eating it.

Our Glandular System and Health

Dr. Melvin Page, author of Your Body is Your Best Doctor, observed that out-of-balance calcium and phosphorous ratios could be brought into balance by correcting the functioning of the glandular system. He also found that one of the chief functions of the glandular system was to support the digestive and metabolic processes. When our glands are not working well, we won’t metabolize food well!*

Each gland in our body—with the exception of our adrenal glands—has both sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve wiring and functions. In contrast, the adrenal glands are only wired to the sympathetic (speed up) system.

Our individually inherited tendencies that determine our glandular strengths or weaknesses are likely what predispose some of us, when deficient in minerals and overall nutrition, to suffer from tooth decay, while others, with the same deficiency, suffer from gum disease. Here are a few descriptions about the function of important glands in our body. Traditional Foods Market, Essential Multi-Glandular contains each of these important glands and more to help support and enhance your normal glandular function.*

Endocrine Glands Health

The Thyroid Gland

The thyroid is regulated by the anterior portion of the pituitary gland. A malfunctioning thyroid also plays a role in the loss of health because the thyroid along with the tiny parathyroid glands play an important role in maintaining blood calcium levels. The essential multi-glandular contains a small amount of thyroid gland to support the normal function of the thyroid.

The function of the pancreas.

The pancreas is a gland organ located in the abdomen. It is part of the digestive system and produces important enzymes and hormones that help break down foods. The pancreas plays a critical role in converting the food we eat into fuel for the body's cells. The pancreas also has an endocrine function as it regulates blood sugar. The gland produces the hormone insulin and secretes it into the bloodstream in order to regulate the body's glucose or sugar level.

The function of the adrenals

When one thinks of the adrenal glands, also known as suprarenal glands, stress might come to mind. The adrenal glands may be best known for secreting the hormone adrenaline, which rapidly prepares your body to spring into action in a flight or fight situation. Yet the adrenal glands contribute to our health even during times when our bodies aren't under extreme stress. In fact, they release hormones that are critical for us to live.

The adrenal cortex, which is the outer part of the gland, produces the hormones that are essential for life. It produces cortisol which helps regulate metabolism and helps our bodies respond to stress and aldosterone, which helps control blood pressure. The adrenal medulla, which is the inner part of the gland, produces nonessential hormones which are not critical for us to live, such as adrenaline

Sex Glands

Both excess testosterone and estrogen can cause imbalances in the body, and cause us to not feel well. These imbalances can have a multitude of causes such as not going to sleep when it’s dark, eating the wrong types of foods, plastic toxins like BPA and BPH, pesticides, soy in foods, birth control pills, I.U.D., and many more. Very small amounts of bovine gonads and ovaries are added to the essential multi-glandular (both men and women need and use estrogen and testosterone). One would expect this food to be deeply nourishing to one’s wellbeing.

Support Glandular Function Naturally

The healthy functioning of the pituitary, thyroid, sex glands, and all other glands is essential for a healthy body. Conversely, supporting the health of our glands can support better body chemistry, which means your body will function more optimally, and food will be metabolized more efficiently . The secret to glandular balance is found in the sacred foods of indigenous cultures. It is the hormones and a variety of other potent substances in the animal tissues that comprise the sacred food categories of indigenous peoples around the world. Foods high in those special substances will support gland and hormone function.*

A healthy low sugar diet, and consuming a variety of organs and glands from either fresh animal sources or from glandular concentrates, are all ways to support the health and balance of these glands.* Since it can be difficult to obtain a wide variety of fresh organ meats, consuming a dried organ and glandular blend from grass-fed sources mimics the practice of consuming these parts of the animal by traditional peoples around the world.

Essential Multi-Glandular Gland Mix Ratios

The goal of the formula is to nourish the entire body with whole foods. As such, powerful glands like the adrenal gland and thyroid gland are used only in very small amounts as we are looking for a nutritional benefit and support for the entire system. Some people need to know about the percentage of thyroid and adrenal gland. The multi-glandular contains approximately 1% thyroid gland and 0.25% (1/4 of one percent) adrenal gland. The exact ratio's of the glands in the multi-glandular is confidential. We would also like you to know is that the entire mix is only made of pasture-fed organs and glands. There is absolutely nothing added at all.

Cultures across the globe value, cherish, and relish in the consumption of organ meats. Sweatbreads (the thymus) and kidneys are highly valued by chefs. The valuing of the organs and glands is not haphazard. When lions kill their prey, they go for the liver, heart, kidneys, and lungs first. According to the field studies of the preeminent Dr. Weston Price, the natives of Canada’s far north believed that in order for every man, woman, and child to have a perfect body, they must eat some of every part of the animal. They regularly consumed liver, brain, kidneys, and glands of the wild animals they caught. Yet in the modern world, it can be extremely difficult to obtain high quality organ and gland foods for regular consumption. Traditional Foods Market’s Essential Multi-Glandular returns the missing organs and glands to our diet.
