Ancestral Supplements Grass-fed Intestines W/Tripe
For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed (nose-to-tail) the things we needed for strength, health and happiness. Like the fertile ground that we once walked upon, we were a natural extension of this earth. In the modern world, we unknowingly struggle to fulfill our nutritional needs in order to support and sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. We are now part of a world where our health is not wholly ours… many leading experts believe that pervasive gut issues (dysbiosis, sibo, leaky gut) have a lot to do with the problem. The solution is to restore and rebuild our gut health with proven anthropological ways that are backed by modern science… this includes the use of intestine and tripe.
Intestines are a profound source of intestine-specific building blocks, collagen / gelatin, glutamine and some organ-derived probiotics which are key for stabilizing, repairing and rebuilding a leaky gut.4 If you’re like my tribe and you’re into making homemade, simmered-with-love-for-3-days bone soup, try adding some pieces of intestines and tripe. You and your gut will be glad you did. Recent research shows that extracts of intestines provide growth stimulators that are needed to repair the lining of the intestinal wall. 5
Tripe is the common term used to refer to the stomach of ruminating (grazing) animals including cows, buffalo and sheep. The Sioux of the Great Plains were known to boil buffalo meat and wild herbs with heated rocks in a buffalo paunch… afterwards, they ate the paunch too. Tripe was so revered in European culture that it spurred a tiff between William the Conqueror and Phillip I, the King of France. This is also a great source of gut-specific building blocks, micronutrients, collagen / gelatin, digestive enzymes and some organ-derived probiotics. 6,7 Many have reported that eating tripe has greatly improved their digestive system. 4,8
NOTE: Cows have these huge stomachs which are populated with billions upon billions of bacteria, which begin breaking down the cellulose in the cell walls of plant fibers. The first three stomachs, the rumen, reticulum, and omasum, are concerned with breaking down the plant fibers in preparation for digestion. The work is mainly done by bacteria. True digestion finally occurs in the fourth stomach, the abomasum. Glands produce hydrochloric acid, pepsin and lipase which finish breaking down the food into all its constituent nutrients.9

BENEFITS OF CONSUMING THYROID WITH LIVER
Traditional peoples, Native Americans and early ancestral healers believed that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health of the corresponding organ of the individual. For instance, the traditional way of treating a person with a weak heart was to feed the person the heart of a healthy animal. Similarly, eating the kidneys of a healthy animal was believed to nourish urinary ailments, boost vitality and support overall kidney health… Pancreas was fed to people with digestive and endocrine problems… spleen was fed to people with immune and blood deficiencies…1 intestines, stomach (tripe) and other gelatinous parts provided concentrated amounts of connective tissue, gelatin / collagen, probiotics and other gut-specific proteins that are now absent from the modern diet.
Dr. Royal Lee, and other early nutritional pioneers, believed the degenerative processes of a specific organ / gland could be reversed by ingesting the corresponding raw materials specific to that organ / gland.10

NOTE: For intensive support, consider reviewing the life’s work of Dr. John F. Prudden… he showed that the use of bovine tracheal cartilage (BTC) had unique and powerful effects on healing, immune conditions and other life-threatening conditions considered to be treatment-resistant to conventional therapies.* Colostrum plays a significant role in gut health too.

NOTE: Many First Nations butcher the moose at the slaughter site and return to camp with tokens for the tribe… the tokens returned to camp, came from the abdominal cavity, the heart and lower intestine, and two types of fat, called wiis. 12
SUGGESTED USE (6 CAPSULES A DAY)
Our Grass Fed Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine intestines with 100% pure bovine tripe. This supplement can be taken with (or) without food (even though it technically is food). The suggested use is 6 capsules a day or as directed by a healthcare professional — for added support, the dose can be doubled. If consuming more than six capsules at once, the doses should be separated by at least three hours to improve tolerability.
POTENTIAL ISSUES (DETOX REACTION)
Most customers tolerate our supplements without incident; however, approximately 5 to 10% of customers (usually with an autoimmune condition) may experience a detoxification reaction. Detoxification reactions go by many different names including healing reactions, healing crises, cleansing reactions (or) Herxheimer reactions with hallmark symptoms of nausea, headache, lethargy, dizziness and other flu like symptoms. In this instance, detoxification reactions are generally an indication that detoxification pathways in the body are back online… cells suddenly have an opportunity to release an even greater than normal quantity of stored toxins, metabolic wastes, pathogens and unwanted material.
A detoxification reaction is more likely to occur when starting with the full suggested serving size of 6 capsules per day. If you know that you are sensitive to supplements and/or you have an autoimmune condition, you may wish to start slow when adding this product to your current regimen. Tolerability can be greatly improved by starting with just 1 (or) 2 capsules a day and increasing by just 1 capsule every couple of days — this method may take a full two weeks to achieve the desired serving size of 6 capsules per day.
For customers that are highly sensitive to supplements and/or have an autoimmune and/or methylation SNPs, I suggest that you “play it safe” by introducing just one new capsule per week. In other words, just 1 capsule during the 1st week… 2 capsules during the 2nd week… 3 capsules during the 3rd week and so on… yes, this will take some time to reach the suggested dosages but this greatly helps to ensure tolerability of this deep nourishment so that it has a chance to do good (all those gut health and digestion benefits).
GRASS FED INTESTINES (W/ TRIPE) SUMMARY
Our genome has evolved with the nourishment of nose-to-tail dining since the beginning of time. Grass Fed Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine intestines and 100% pure bovine tripe containing powerful building blocks and biodirectors along with high amounts of collagen / gelatin, glutamine, B12 and selenium. Based on the concept of “like supports like,” Grass Fed Intestines (w/ Tripe) may nourish and support our own gut health.*
Not all organs and glands are the same. Look for the highest quality bovine intestines and tripe… It should come from pasture-raised, grass-fed and grass-finished animals that are hormone, pesticide and GMO free. If considering a supplement, look for one that is ultra pure (without binders, fillers (or) flow agents) and look for the freeze dried variety as these have been shown to optimally preserve nutritional factors, growth factors and co-factors.
[ FACT: There has never been a case of mad cow disease in New Zealand. BSE (mad cow disease), scrapie and other known TSE’s, do not occur in New Zealand. A national surveillance programme is in place to provide comprehensive monitoring. ]
We care deeply about each and every aspect of our “seed to supplement” way of life… great love and gratitude goes out to the souls of our animal brethren, such beautiful creatures that were sacrificed so that we could be nourished.
