Glandular extracts are nutritionals obtained from hormone-producing glands of mammals, usually cattle, but sometimes sheep and pigs. They contain dried and ground-up extracts of glandular tissues from adrenals, liver, thyroid, pituitary, thymus, testis, ovaries, and pancreas. These extracts are rich in gland specific nutrients.
Glands produce hormones that regulate bodily functions such as growth, metabolism, immunity and sexual development. Glandular tissues have high content of vitamins, fatty acids, enzymes, amino acids, minerals, polypeptides, and many other nutrients. Therefore, glandular extracts are highly efficient in supplying essential nutritionals. Besides supporting damaged organs and tissues, glandular can often be used to avoid the necessity of taking hormones.
The following are some of the health benefits of glandular extracts
The thyroid glandular extract plays a crucial role of regulating metabolism by releasing iodine containing hormones that control energy production in all the body’s cells. Administration of thyroid extract helps body cells to get rid of cellular waste and speeds up their restorative functions. Thyroid extracts ensure a healthy immune and cardiovascular system, good weight management and maintaining cellular energy levels.
Thymus extracts are responsible for the production and maturation of immune cells. They also help to treat chronic viral infections and low immune function. Thymus extracts are also able to effectively eliminate respiratory infections.
Spleen extracts help to treat infectious conditions and prevents cancer. These extracts are effective because they contain molecular proteins that stimulate macrophages in the spleen, liver and lymph nodes. Spleen extracts are also useful in the treatment of low white blood cell counts and bacterial infections.
4) The liver
The liver plays an important role in processing nutrients, toxins, drugs and other substances that enter the body through the intestines, lungs or skin. The liver extract helps to regulate blood sugar, detoxification, and metabolism of hormones, carbohydrates, proteins and fats. The liver extract helps with digestion and provide organ specific nutrients to promote detoxification pathways and encourage regeneration of the liver tissue.
Adrenal glandular extract helps the body with stress management, preventing miscarriage, water balance and blood sugar control. Adrenal tissue extract boosts adrenal function and relieves overworked adrenal glands.
Glandular extracts help in healing of worn out cells and replacing dead cells. They provide raw materials for organs, glands, and tissues to regenerate themselves.
In summary, glandular extracts are beneficial in the treatment of a wide variety of problems. Besides, they are relatively inexpensive and non-toxic.
