Organ meats were once the most cherished and valued sources of meat1.
Organ and glandular supplements come from animal organs and glands. These meats are typically referred to as “offal”, alluding to any piece of the animal that falls “off” or away during butchering.
Glands are typically secretory organs, meaning they secrete a specific substance into the blood or other pathways of the body. Endocrine glands include adrenal, pancreas, thyroid, and thymus glands and they secrete hormones.
Other organs, though not technically glands, are also considered “glands” or “glandulars” when provided in supplement form. Spleen, heart, liver and lung organ tissues are often utilized in glandular supplements along with the actual glands.
These organ and gland extracts are highly beneficial for the body because they are very nutrient dense meaning they supply a large amount of micronutrients to the body.
Throughout time, glandular therapy has been used to heal people. In the past, whole meat organs or glands were given to people. Today, we typically use organ or gland concentrates in supplement form.
Glandular therapy, also known as organotherapy, refers to the use of animal tissue extracts of the heart, spleen, and pancreas, thyroid, thymus and adrenals or other tissues. Tribes and healers have long thought these tissues are responsible for boosting the function or healing of the corresponding human tissue.
Most meat that is consumed in America today is in the form of muscle meats, while organ and gland meats are often overlooked. This is unfortunate as organ and glandular meat contain valuable substances that are critical to healing the body.
Glandular supplements can deliver nutrients, enzymes, cofactors, proteins and hormones in an organ-specific fashion. This means that they can get the nutrients and substances to the corresponding organs that need them most.
In a sense, these glandular supplements can deliver what are known as “tissue-specific factors”. They deliver crucial factors that can help with the growth and maintenance of organs and glands.
There are many benefits to supplementing with these. A study using a protocol of glandular supplementation found that within three months of treatment the symptoms of hypothyroidism within patients were significantly reduced2.
There are also many critical nutrients. For example, CoQ10, a nutrient needed for generating cellular energy and protecting against disease, is highest in organs like heart, liver and kidney3.
The answer is yes.
And that’s why we developed our own neonatal glandular supplement. We call it “Paleo Multi.”
Paleo Multi supplies many essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K as well as magnesium, copper, iron, and phosphorous that cannot be obtained in adequate, bioavailable amounts from the diet alone. Additionally, animal protein provides all 9 essential amino acids, making them a complete protein.
This uniquely formulated supplement contains raw bovine (cow) and ovine (sheep) tissue from neonatal spleen, heart, liver, kidney, pancreas, lung, thymus, intestine and adrenals.
Our supplement was developed using the highest quality neonatal tissues from young calves that have minimal exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants. This means that they are preserved in their purest state. It ensures that there is no accumulation of fat and toxins or a degradation of organ tissue that occurs with typical adult tissue.
The tissue in the supplement is “raw” meaning it hasn’t been heated and the proteins haven’t been broken down. The glandulars have been processed at a low temperature in order to preserve the enzymes, nutrients and other factors and ensure the highest quality product available.
Our product is made in the U.S. from 100% USDA inspected animals.
Enjoy the health benefits of organ meats, provided in a simple supplement form, without having to source quality organ meats and cook them the correct way.

Fun fact: Selenium, just like what you get in spleen, is a trace mineral that is needed for antioxidant protection and can play a role in the prevention of cancer and heart disease.
Fun fact: The heart is rich in choline, which can be converted to glycine, and other essential amino acids that provide a major boost in collagen production. Collagen is that buzzword supplement touted with improving hair, skin, nails and joint health.
Fun fact: Beef liver is the most commonly consumed organ meat in America and is often thought of as a “nature’s multivitamin”.
Fun fact: Kidneys are protein-rich. Beef kidneys contain roughly 27 g protein per serving.
Fun fact: Cow lungs are a staple in cultural cuisines around the world. In Peru, Indonesia and Malaysia cows lungs are coated with spices and served as a main dish.
Fun fact: Part of the “Sweetbreads” culinary component, these glandular organs assist in digestion and blood sugar control. Not technically sweet or bread, these glands are essential to boosting immune function.
Fun fact: Glutamine, a conditionally essential amino acid that is found in high levels in intestines, is important for healing gut-related issues. A study found that glutamine could decrease intestinal permeability and help to heal leaky gut4.
Fun fact: The adrenal glands are important for producing hormones, regulating cortisol levels, and managing water balance and blood pressure.
