The Thyroid Glandular provides desiccated thyroid and liver from pasture-raised, New Zealand animals to help support thyroid function.
As a society today we are far removed from the rituals and habits adopted by natives and our early ancestors. Throughout most of human history it was common practice to consume animals from nose to tail because of the health and longevity benefits. Organ meats are the best whole food, nutrient dense sources on the planet! It was believed that eating the organs of healthy animals would help to strength and support the organs that were being consumed. For instance, if you had thyroid issues you should eat thyroid. If you had heart problems you should eat heart. And the list goes on. In the modern world we consider this strategy barbaric and frankly disgusting. However, because of our modern perspective we are in a constant struggle to fulfill optimal nutritional needs and are riddled with a variety of associated chronic diseases.
Fully knowing that most people would never eat the organ itself, The Wellness Way has developed organ-based supplements to help solve this dilemma. These supplements are sourced exclusively in New Zealand, the world’s leader in pasture raised, grass fed and finished animals. Because of strict livestock regulations, the quality is second to none. They are free of hormones, pesticides, antibiotics and GMO’s. An important step in the process is freeze drying which helps to preserve optimal nutrient value. Every batch is third party tested for quality and contaminants and to ensure purity.
Unless specifically noted, these supplements can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food.
- Pasture raised, grass fed and finished in New Zealand
- Freeze Dried for optimum nutrient benefits
- Third party tested for purity
- Hormone, pesticide, antibiotic and GMO free
Thyroid tissue is very vulnerable to loss of function. Whether it be from stress, heavy metals, viruses, or any of the 3 T’s that we teach at The Wellness Way, the answer of medication for the rest of your life is an all to common recommendation. Autoimmune thyroid damage, thyroid medication use, thyroid removal or radioactive treatments prevent normal thyroid function and hormone production. A thyroid glandular has the ability to provide healthy thyroid tissue to somebody in need of direct thyroid gland support. It is not a guaranteed replacement of the need for medication, but it can certainly be a great starting point.
- Contains powerful protein, peptides and enzymes to support thyroid health
- Supports hypothyroid state, low thyroid hormones, energy, mood, metabolism
- Mandatory for those with no thyroid or a low functioning thyroid
- Step dose and monitor thyroid labs with a Wellness Way practitioner for most appropriate dosing
- Dosing- Take the larger first dose as soon as you wake in the morning on an empty stomach (e.g. 4 capsules if taking 6 daily). Wait at least one hour before food and ideally two hours before coffee. Take a smaller dosage in the afternoon (e.g. 2 capsules if taking 6 daily). This can help to stabilize energy levels throughout the day without disrupting sleep.
Looking for the most nutrient dense food on the planet but can’t handle the thought of eating it? Instead of eating 8 oz of beef liver each week, look no farther than beef liver capsules! Liver is packed with proteins, vitamins and nutrients including Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, folate, choline, CoQ10 and iron (specifically heme iron, the most bio-available form leading to better absorption). Liver helps to support collagen synthesis, bone health, connective tissue health (hair, skin, nails), immune system health, methylation, heart health, brain health, and so much more!
It is great for those looking to support an overall healthier liver and is a must for those suffering from anemia (low iron, ferritin). One of the common concerns with consuming beef liver is the risk of toxicity. The good news is this is a common misconception of the liver. The liver does play a critical role in the filtration of toxins, but it does not store them and is therefore perfectly safe to consume. What the liver does store is nutrients, vitamins and minerals as noted above.
- The most nutrient dense food on the planet! High in Vitamin A, B12, folate, choline, CoQ10, iron, zinc, copper and many more.
- Collagen synthesis and bone health
- Methylation and overall liver support
- Hair, skin, and nail health
- Anemia support
- Heart and brain health
