Glandular Extracts

Glandular Extracts: Main Image

A gland is defined as a secretory organ (i.e., an organ that secretes substances into the bloodstream or elsewhere in the body). The internal secretory organs of the body are called endocrine glands. These ductless glands secrete hormones directly into the blood stream. The glands that are known to have endocrine function include the pineal, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, and gonads (testes and ovaries). Although not technically glands, other organs of the body are commonly also referred to as "glandulars" when they are taken as supplements. For example, tissue extracts of the heart, spleen, prostate, uterus, brain, and other tissues are often used in so-called "glandular therapy," along with extracts from pineal, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, and gonads. Glandular therapy refers to the use of animal tissues to try to enhance the function of, or mimic the effect of, the corresponding human tissue.
