Unfortunately, our ancestral diets have been lost. For generations we ate what the land offered to us. There were times we as hunters and gatherers had a sufficient amount of food. Whereas other times food was scarce and we would have to go days, weeks, sometimes months without food. We have adapted to handle periods of time without food and use our stored energy (i.e. fat) as a fuel source. Today, we have become a society of overeating foods that are devoid of micronutrients such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorous, etc. and eating a surplus of carbohydrates (breads, pasta, soda, candies, etc.) which are destroying our hormones and making us fat and prone to chronic stress, pain, obesity, cancer, diabetes, and immune dysfunction.
We need to return to ancestral diets filled with low carbohydrate foods and nutrient dense foods that contain natural enzymes, peptides, and hormone precursors. The most nutritional foods that contain natural enzymes, peptides and hormone precursors that we have eaten for centuries are organ meats, also known as glandulars or cytotrophins (meaning cell foods).
In Chinese Medicine like cures likes. For example, eating liver will support the health of the liver, eating heart will support heart health, and eating pancreas helps support the health of the pancreas. We see this being used today in medicine when using Armour Thyroid medication (which is porcine thyroid gland) to improve thyroid function.
Humans have been consuming glandulars for thousands if not millions of years and it is linked to the maturation of our brain development and our cognitive functions, separating us from other animals. When food was scarce, we ate leftovers from other animals, such as the brain and bone marrow, the areas of the dead animals that predators couldn’t get to.
Glandulars are considered adaptogens. Adaptogens are a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes. For example, if the liver is underactive, eating liver will improve the function. On other hand, if the liver is overactive, eating liver will decrease the overactivity.
Furthermore, glandulars have the ability to regulate organ function because of their unique protein make up and cell blueprint to affect the corresponding human cells. It is believed that these glandulars have a direct impact on the DNA of the human tissue in turn assisting in the repair of the cells and organ itself.
When glandulars, herbs, and minerals are blended together they have a synergistic effect in the body and support the body from the inside out. An old Chinese proverb states,”To treat disease we must treat the root.” The root cause to 90-95% of most diseases is stress caused by deficiency and toxicity.
VitaType Nutrition was created after 20 years of clinical research and thousands of Hair Tissue Mineral Analyses (HTMA). Understanding the energetics of glandulars, herbs, and minerals makes VitaType very unique in its formulations. What also adds to the unique formulation is the processing of clean ingredients without fillers and synthetic binders and how we have been able to optimize bio-availability of the ingredients.
We have researched the world to find the best herbal ingredients from organic sources and glandulars from wild grass-fed free roaming lands. In addition, we’ve been able to super concentrate all our herbals maximizing the potency as well as creating a product line that you won’t have to take a lot of pills to achieve therapeutic efficacy.
