Our Kidney Glandular for dogs and cats is one of the simplest, safest and effective Holistic modalities available to us. Essentially, the science behind the use of a kidney glandular for pets, is that glands, when taken internally, support and nourish the corresponding gland in the body.
We highly recommend that you restrict all of your dog or cat organ supplementation to pastured, or at the very least, grass-finished animals. It is particularly important to consume animals raised on pasture and fed a biologically appropriate diet, which virtually eliminates their risk of various diseases common in confined animal feeding operations, as well as many other dangerous contaminants. Our kidney glandular supplement consists of freeze dried, certified pure New Zealand glandular tissue from free-range, antibiotic and hormone free cows (porcine-free!).
In the wild, the ingestion of glands is a very important part of an animal's nutrition and glandular supplementation is obviously missing from the majority of domesticated animals' diets. In traditional cultures, animal organs and glands were considered the most essential foods. Now, in modern times, scientists have shown that proteins specific to individual organs selectively travel to the corresponding organs of the animal consuming them. In this case, the dog or cat consuming kidney glandular will benefit from fat and water soluble vitamins, enzymes, proteins, co-factors and omega 3 fatty acids that will help support the corresponding organ or gland.
Available in a 25 gram container.
Kidney Glandular Benefits
Supports and nourishes stressed, weakened or underperforming kidneys.
A simple, safe and effective Holistic modality.
Provides glandular supplementation, common in wild animals, for our domesticated animals.
Glandular supplements and tissues are good sources of a variety of important nutrients.
May have a sparing effect on functional health problems such as hormone deficiency, without suppressing the body's natural production. This is in contrast to the use of high doses of purified hormones administered pharmacologically that are believed to inhibit further hormone production by the body itself.
Oral administration of tissue extracts from healthy sources may have the potential to slow the progression of degenerative disease or to promote healing of damaged tissues.
Consists of freeze dried, certified pure New Zealand glands and tissues from free-range, antibiotic and hormone free animals for your animal's safety.
How Do Glandular Supplements for Pets Work?
Glandular therapies involve feeding glands, organs or tissues from healthy animals to dogs and cats. Supplements are given either as fresh tissue or as tissue extracts in the hope that the supplement contains constituents that will help improve the function of the corresponding organ in the animal. One of the basic concepts of glandular therapy is that the oral ingestion of glandular material of a certain animal gland will strengthen the corresponding dog or cat gland. The result is a broad general effect indicative of improved glandular function. Thus, glandular therapy increases the tone, function, and/or activity of the corresponding gland.
Do Studies Show Glandular Supplements for Pets are Effective?
Radioactive and dye studies have demonstrated that nutrients from a glandular supplement are routinely absorbed intact or only partially degraded, and that these constituents can concentrate in target tissues. Laboratory studies have documented a more rapid uptake of tagged cells or their components by traumatized organs than normal organs, leading to enhanced healing rates. These observations have lead to the resurgence of interest in glandular supplementation for dogs and cats.
How safe are Glandular Supplements for Pets?
There are no apparent side effects with this form of supplementation. The safe, natural, whole food doses of supplemental nutrients have a beneficial effect on various health problems associated with glandular insufficiency.
