Description: Glandulars refer to nutritional supplements made from animal tissue or animal tissue extracts. Research has found that amino acids, enzymes, and other nutrients from glandular supplements are absorbed into the bloodstream. In addition, minute quantities of hormones are likely present in many glandular products. It is thought that glandular supplements work by supplying minute amounts of hormones and specific nutrition to improve the functioning of the targeted gland. Preparations are available for most glands, such as thyroid, pancreas, adrenals, thymus, and many others. Most products are derived from cow or sheep organs.

Indications: Support for any underfunctioning or imbalanced gland

Precautions: A small percentage of users experience digestive upset. Look for organic products, to minimize the likelihood of using a contaminated product.

Dosage: The typical adult dosage is 1 to 2 capsules or tablets two to three times daily between meals. Take as directed on the label, as product potencies vary.
