The vast majority of glandular supplements use materials from South America, in particular Argentina and Brazil.

Cattle farming is the leading cause deforestation in South America.

Every year countless acres of rainforest and temperate forests are lost for this reason.

In Argentina huge amounts of important temperate forests are being lost because of illegal ranching.

In the past two decades alone, around 12.4 million acres of the Grand Chaco forest have been lost, the majority from cattle ranching.

In Brazil and other countries around the Amazon rainforest, upwords of eighty percent of deforestation is the result of cattle ranching.

Proper cattle ranching, regenerative farming, helps to restore grasslands and improve the environment.

This is the way cattle should be raised, not by cutting down important forests.

We only source organ supplements from regeneratively farmed cattle, in areas with lots of natural grasslands (Ireland, Australia, New Zealand) so that no forest has to be cut down, and the local environment is actually improved from grazing.

Our regeneratively farmed organ supplements are actually carbon negative, because so much carbon is sequestered in the ground.

The same cannot be said for those produced from deforested land, which leads to massive carbon release.

Another issue with South American organ supplements is that while many raw materials claim to be freeze-dried they actually are not.

What they are actually doing is freezing the organs and then high-temperature drying them.

 Any heating process affects heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals, and cofactors and denatures protein.


 Usually, the lower-quality product from Argentina or Brazil made using heat-activated drying technology is cheaper than the higher-quality freeze-dried product.

Labels can be deceiving because many of the terms are not regulated.

Rather than focus on fancy labeling terms, look for products that can be traced back to the farms they came from and companies that actually produce their own products, from raw materials to bottles.

By doing that, you have a much greater chance of getting an ethical, high-quality product.

If you are unsure about how an organ supplement is made, we can help. 

We can tell you whether any brand is is a farm-to-table product, or is ethically questionable.

Organ supplements are a great way to improve your health and the health of the environment, but without proper sourcing and manufacturing, they can have the opposite effect.
