We’ve all been taught to eat our organic, nutritious, whole fruits and vegetables to support our immune systems. But have we forgotten other sources of immune-supporting nutrition? Our ancestors believed that eating organs from healthy animals would help to strengthen and support those same organs. 

For instance, if someone had thyroid issues, they would eat thyroid. If they had heart problems, they would eat heart. And the list goes on. In the modern world, many Americans consider this uncivilized and disgusting, even though some cultures still follow this practice. However, because of our views, we constantly struggle to fulfill our nutritional needs and are riddled with various chronic conditions. Organ and glandular meats deliver many nutrients you simply cannot get from plants, like fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. The challenge is that not many people eat these nutrient-dense, bioavailable foods. But don’t worry, we have a solution!

Knowing most people would prefer not to eat organ meats, 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 grass-finished animals. Because of their strict livestock regulations, the quality of these glandulars is second to none.

We have harnessed the unsurpassed benefits of grass-fed, pasture-raised organ meats. When you eat organ meats or take glandular supplements, you’re getting all the building blocks you need to rebuild that organ in your body. When you supply your body with the potent elements it needs to function properly, health can often be restored.

The Wellness Way Glandular supplements are sourced exclusively from New Zealand, the world’s leader in pasture-raised, grass-fed, and finished animals. They are free of hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, and genetically engineered ingredients. A crucial step in the production process is freeze-drying, which helps to preserve nutrient value. Every batch is third-party tested for quality and purity.

Nutrition Standards 

Having healthy animal sources of these glandulars is critical. Animals following their traditional grass-based diet will have a better nutrient profile than those eating modern diets of corn and soy. 

The Wellness Way glandulars are: 

  • Pasture-raised, grass-fed, and grass-finished in New Zealand   
  • Freeze-dried for optimal nutrient benefits   
  • Third-party tested for purity  
  • Free of hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, and GMOs (genetically modified organisms)  
  • No fillers or flow agents (starches, stearates, silica, etc.)  
  • Allergen-free 

Not only are the animals raised in a healthy manner, but the supplement manufacturing process is designed for the best possible nutrient delivery and purity. 

Our Immune Glandular contains spleen, thymus, and liver for optimal immune support.

Why Spleen?

The spleen is a powerful organ that plays a significant role in blood filtration, volume, and recycling. It takes iron from old red blood cells and uses it for new red blood cell production. It also supports and modulates immunity by stimulating macrophages, neutrophils, and other white blood cells, including natural killer (NK) cells.  

Spleen glandular: 

  • Supports spleen, immune, and blood health 
  • Contains powerful bioactive peptides, including tuftsin and splenopentin, which may enhance immune health. A tuftsin deficiency is linked to bacterial infections. 
  • Contains splenin, a peptide that can help by increasing specialized white blood cells like neutrophils and macrophages. 
  • Has 5x more heme iron than liver 
  • Supports a healthy inflammatory response 
  • Beneficial for both red blood cells (RBCs) and white blood cells (WBCs) 

Overall, a healthy spleen is crucial for maintaining a healthy immune system and proper blood circulation within the body.

Why Thymus?

There’s a significant link between thymus health and immune health. A wide variety of health issues, including autoimmune diseases, allergies, migraines, and chronic or recurrent infections, are linked to thymus issues. The thymus shrinks over time via a process called involution. Involution starts as early as one year after birth and occurs because of the extremely sensitive nature of the thymus. It’s highly affected by free radicals and oxidative damage caused by Traumas, Toxins, and Thoughts (3 T’s and inflammation). 

Thymus Glandular:

  • Contains powerful proteins, peptides, and enzymes, including thymopoietin, thymosin, and serum thymic factor.
  • Supports thymus, immune, and inflammatory health.
  • Responsible for T lymphocyte production, a critical white blood cell in the cell-mediated immune response. T lymphocytes defend against a wide range of infections, including bacterial, fungal/yeast, parasitic, and viral. They also help to protect against and prevent the development of allergies and autoimmune conditions. 
  • Stimulates macrophage and NK cell activity. 

Why Liver?

Looking for the most nutrient-dense food on the planet but can’t handle the thought of eating it? Instead of eating 8 ounces of beef liver each week, consider adding daily beef liver capsules! Liver is packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, including the following:  

  • Pre-formed vitamin A  
  • Vitamin B12  
  • Folate  
  • Choline  
  • CoQ10   
  • Iron (specifically heme iron, the most bio-available form, leading to better absorption).  

Eating liver helps to support growth and repair throughout the body. It’s excellent for those looking to support a healthier liver and is a must for anyone suffering from anemia (low iron or ferritin). 

One of the common concerns people have about eating beef liver is the risk of toxicity since the liver is known as a detox organ. However, the good news is that this is a common misconception about eating liver. While the liver does play a critical role in the filtration of toxins, it doesn’t store them. Therefore, it’s perfectly safe to consume. The liver does store nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, as noted above. 

Here’s a run-down of liver’s benefits:  

  • The most nutrient-dense food on the planet!  
  • Promotes collagen synthesis and bone health  
  • Supports methylation and overall liver health  
  • Supports hair, skin, and nail health  
  • Provides anemia support  
  • Supports heart and brain health 

You can see why Dr. Patrick Flynn considers liver to be nature’s multivitamin!

The Immune Glandular May Help 

While it’s not known exactly how glandulars work, it’s a fact that they do work. The current theory or understanding is that when organs are damaged, cellular debris enters the bloodstream and creates an immune response. In some cases, this leads to autoimmune conditions, as the immune system begins to attack the already damaged organ(s). 

Taking organ glandulars seems to neutralize this process, stopping the destruction and supplying the nutrients needed for healing. Decades of using glandulars to address specific health concerns have shown that consuming organ tissue does indeed help those same organs in the human body.
