Swanson Vitamins Develops Line of Glandular Products

Due to customer demand, Swanson Vitamins developed a line of glandular supplements including Raw Adrenal, Raw Heart, Raw Kidney, Raw Liver, Raw Pancreas and Raw Thymus.

June 5, 2009, Fargo, ND—Due to an increase in popularity and a decrease in availability, Swanson Vitamins developed their own line of Glandular supplements. A tenet of glandular supplementation is that like supports like¬óconsuming heart tissue supports heart health.

The history of glandular tissue consumption dates back to the 16th century. Mystics and medicine men conferred special powers upon glands and organs, using them in traditional medicines and tribal ceremonies. Warriors relied upon glands and organs they believed would provide special strength and power. In times when every part of the animal was used, the glands were considered to be of special value, even average individuals consumed glands and organ meats in traditional recipes.

Continued support for glandular supplementation is validated from a 2001 paper published in the well-known Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, recognizing the high percentage of naturopaths, chiropractors and alternative physicians who continue to agree that glandular supplements are useful and deserving of their place in our healthcare practices. When quality and safety are ensured, glandulars are valid alternatives with broad professional support.

The 6 Swanson Premium Glandular supplements are made only from raw, cold-pressed bovine (cow) glandular tissue collected at USDA-inspected facilities. This high-quality tissue is desiccated (dried), defatted and powdered at cGMP laboratories in Nebraska. Lee Swanson, President of Swanson Vitamins says, “I personally guarantee that Swanson glandular supplements are the highest quality available. I wouldn't settle for anything less and I wouldn't ask our valued customers to accept anything but the best.”

The 6 Swanson Premium Glandulars include: Raw Adrenal Glandular, Raw Heart Glandular, Raw Kidney Glandular, Raw Liver Glandular, Raw Pancreas Glandular and Raw Thymus Glandular. They come in 60 capsule sizes and range in price from $3.99-$4.99.
