New Roots Herbal’s Pure Pancreas is sourced from pasture-fed New Zealand lamb, and freeze-fried for freshness and potency.
The pancreas acts as a hybrid organ; it produces enzymes critical for digestion, and manufactures the hormones insulin and glucagon. Glucagon converts energy stored within the liver to glucose, and insulin allows cells to absorb glucose to fuel cellular respiration.
Stress, alcohol consumption, exposure to environmental toxins, and aging are among the many factors that can compromise pancreatic function. With advancements in the isolation and synthesis of specific hormones, glandular therapy has decreased in Western medicine; however, it’s still a popular therapeutic strategy employed in traditional Chinese medicine and contemporary naturopathic practice. The roots of glandular therapy stem from the philosophy that oral consumption of an animal gland will strengthen the corresponding gland in the host (you). The scientific basis for animal glandulars is that they’re a rich source of organ-specific nutrients in their naturally occurring form.
