Digestive Organ Complex
Have you ever heard the saying ‘it’s not what you eat, it’s what you absorb?’ This refers to the fact that you can be eating X, Y or Z gold standard food, but if your digestive system isn’t operating properly, you won’t be able to absorb the nutrients from it. If we want to thrive in terms of health and performance as human beings, it’s vital that we’re absorbing micronutrients in optimal amounts. This is because they dictate the language of our cells and are essential for every function in the human body. We created our digestive complex to support just this. It’s made from two key digestive system organs; liver and pancreas. These contain vital peptides and nutrients to support your digestion and nutrient absorption. All the organs we source for our nose-to-tail line come from an organic certified farm where the cattle are 100% grass-fed and free to roam on pastures. We gently freeze dry the organs raw to maintain as many of the fragile nutrients and enzymes within them. Each jar contains 180, 500mg capsules (30 day supply).
Pancreatic Enzymes - The pancreas contains Gastrin-releasing Peptide (GPR), which supports digestive processes by stimulating the release of enzymes, bicarbonate, and fluids. These enzymes; lipase, protease and amylase are responsible for breaking down fat, protein and starches and to help us extract the micronutrients from them. For example, if your body isn’t producing enough lipase, you’ll struggle to absorb the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Pancreas also contains colipase & trypsin, the pancreatic peptides that are required to activate the aforementioned enzymes.
Pancreatic Hormones - Recent research has validated what ancient cultures have known for centuries; that when consumed, organs selectively travel to the corresponding organ. Therefore if you want to support pancreas health and optimal function, it’s logical to consume the pancreas of a healthy animal. Your pancreas is responsible for creating insulin, the hormone that helps you store carbohydrates and utilise them for energy. When the body can’t produce adequate insulin, this is commonly referred to as type 2 diabetes, which if not treated results in hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) and ultimately oxidative stress.
Liver - Considered the most nutrient rich organ, liver is an amazing source of vitamins A, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 and B12. It’s also rich in the minerals iron, phosphorous, zinc, copper and selenium. This key organ is responsible for producing bile, which plays a pivotal role in the digestion of fat and fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
100% Grass-Fed & Organic - All our organs come from an organic farm where the cattle roam freely on pasture consuming a natural diet of grass. This means our cattle graze outside for as much of the year as weather conditions allow. Also, they are completely antibiotic/hormone free and their diet contains no foods contaminated with fertilisers, pesticides or other artificial chemicals.
About The Product
Eating whole animals, nose-to-tail, was a way of life for our ancestors. They believed that consuming the organ of a healthy animal would strengthen and enhance the health of their own corresponding organ. For example, if someone was struggling with digestion, they would be fed digestive organs, such as the liver and pancreas. Interestingly, this is just now being validated by science. Research conducted at the University of Edinburgh in animal models has shown conclusively that when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs of the consumer in high concentrations. Therefore when the liver and pancreas are consumed, the unique vitamins, minerals and enzymes within them, which are key for healthy digestive function, travel to your own organs. This boosts the production of key enzymes and hormones that support the digestive process and ultimately leads to greater nutrient absorption. Our ancestors also appreciated that animals gave their lives to ensure us as humans could survive and thrive so they left nothing go to waste. And because of their deep connection with the earth and their own bodies they intuitively knew just how nutrient dense organ meat is and would prise this over muscle meats. Fast forward to today and the immense powers of organs have somewhat been forgotten. What was once highly sought after is now rarely consumed and generally people no longer enjoy the taste. We created our nose-to-tail line to help people reintroduce these ancestral superfoods, loaded with nutrients in an easy to consume and flavourless way.
