GRASSFED PROSTATE — $52
— 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.* —
NOURISH YOUR WAY TO HEALTH & HAPPINESS With GRASS FED PROSTATE *
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 strength, our health and our happiness are not wholly ours anymore... but it doesn't have to be that way!
Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail nutrients. ]
Whole food, nutrient dense organs and glands can provide great benefit for those seeking targeted support in harmony with nature — the old fashioned way, the way that our early ancestors did.* Grassfed Prostate is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine prostate (and liver) with prostate specific peptides, cofactors and enzymes to nourish and support one's own prostate.*

New Zealand seems like it was made for raising healthy animals. Its location and climate produce pristine conditions for cattle and sheep, and the farmers have uncanny expertise handed down for generations. New Zealand is unique among meat-producing regions in the world because its climate is moderate so the grass in the pastures grows fresh and grows green year-round which means the cows and sheep can eat the food that’s healthiest for them every day of the year.
Our nose-to-tail product line is always from grassfed, inspected animals born and raised without the use of pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. Health of livestock used for manufacturing in New Zealand is closely monitored by a world leading biosecurity system that is second to none, and is a global exemplar. Strict government licensing, auditing and certification procedures mean that our genuine New Zealand freeze dried products can be used with complete confidence in their origin, safety and efficacy.

BENEFITS OF BOVINE PROSTATE (W/ 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 support urinary ailments and overall kidney health... Pancreas was fed to people with digestive and endocrine problems... bovine prostate provided prostate specific building blocks to nourish and support one's own prostate health.*
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.
LIVER —THE ULTIMATE SUPERFOOD
Whether from grassfed beef, bison, or lamb, grass fed liver is one of the most nutrient-dense, health promoting foods you could possibly eat. Hunters all over the world, for uncounted thousands of years, would eat the raw livers of the animals they killed. Lions and other predatory animals will also eat the liver first. Grass fed liver is particularly rich in vitamin B12, vitamin A, choline, folate and and many other powerful nutrients that most people are deficient in. Grass fed liver also contains compounds that help the human liver function better. Other substances in liver reduce fatigue and improve brain function.*
Many people look to targeted support "like heals like" while neglecting the very fundamental nourishment that governs our biology, health and well-being. It's no wonder that so many people successfully support organ and glandular related health conditions (prostate, adrenal, thyroid, heart included) by just nourishing their bodies with Liver, Beef Organs and Bone Marrow.*
ANCESTRAL WISDOM BACKED BY SCIENCE
Organs and glandulars were a staple of our early ancestors' diets as the ultimate superfood, for good reason. It turns out, this nourishing tradition is backed by science... "Radioisotope labeling studies in animals have shown conclusively that, when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs and glands in high concentrations. This research, done at the University of Scotland in Edinburgh, lends credence to the ancient practice of eating animal organs to help ensure health in one’s corresponding organs..." - Dr. Ron Schmid, ND.* Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail nutrients.
BOVINE PROSTATE (W/ LIVER) CONTAINS...
- Healthy Prostate Building Blocks... Prostate Specific Proteins, Peptides, Enzymes & Cofactors
- Molecular Biodirectors — DNA Blueprints To Healthy Tissue
- Methylation Raw Materials (folate, choline, B12, methyl donors)
BOVINE PROSTATE (W/ LIVER) SUPPORTS...
- Optimal Prostate Health Based On "Like Supports Like" *
- Healthy Urine Flow
- Fertility & Healthy PSA
- Erectile Health
- Methylation And Detoxification
SUGGESTED USE (6 CAPSULES A DAY)
Our Grass Fed Prostate (with liver) is a whole food dietary supplement that provides bovine prostate with the ultimate superfood — liver. Liver fills nutrition gaps more completely than any other food. 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 of Prostate 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.
The human organism is superbly adapted to an environment that no longer exists. Our modern world is totally inappropriate for the bodies we inhabit today. The vast majority of our health and happiness problems result from this mismatch. The solution is to find ways to recreate our ancestral environment in the modern world. You can see exactly how I've done this for my own tribe here. The information presented below is meant to provide you, descendant of the sole surviving species of genus Homo (the baddest mammalian predators that ever lived) insights to reclaim your strength, health and happiness in the modern world.
It's easy to see why so many kids and adults alike are walking around like zombies... low energy... sickly... brain fog... unhappy. The nourishing wisdom that allowed our early ancestors to live a vibrant, disease-free life has been tucked away for convenient, cheap, hyperpalatable food-like products that support big industry as opposed to our health. These products might appeal to taste, but they leave us hungry and stuffed because our bodies are still starving for true whole-food nourishment... the nourishment that's required for the health and healing of all of our organs / glands.
Look to liver for real, preformed vitamin A (retinol). If you're not consuming liver (or) desiccated liver, you're probably deficient... this is a fact. Retinol, and vitamin A derivatives, influence proper cell differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis (programmed cell death for cells that are misbehaving). Real retinol is obtained from animal foods (most notably, liver) in contrast to the beta carotene varieties that poorly convert to this wonder vitamin. Obtaining the recommended Daily Value (RDV) of real vitamin A is fundamental for various biological functions, including dental health, embryonic development, tissue integrity and immune regulation.
- Eat like our early ancestor did... eat liver or a take our Grass Fed Liver and/or Prostate supplement on a regular basis.
Get sensible sun exposure... or, consider a vitamin D3 supplement. Being deficient in this vitamin increases the risk of death and cancer just about as much as smoking cigarettes. According to Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., avoiding sun exposure to prevent skin cancer resulted in such a drop in vitamin D levels that for every life saved from skin cancer, 55 women died from breast cancer and 60 men died from prostate cancer. While this assertion is considered controversial, the research on vitamin D is not... it is clear that vitamin D deficiency dramatically increases risk of many cancers.
A four-year placebo-controlled study that investigated the effects of 1,100 IU vitamin D3 and/or 1,400 mg calcium on cancer risk in 1,179 postmenopausal women over age 55 showed that vitamin D supplementation produced a dramatic 60% drop in the risk of developing any form of cancer. I don't believe that to be an adequate dose of vitamin D but it's a massive step in the right direction.
- Live like our early ancestors did... get sensible sunshine or take a vitamin D3 supplement (along with the other fat soluble vitamins A&K).
Eat your fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut and natto... or, consider a vitamin K complex supplement. Studies of combination therapies have now provided strong evidence favoring vitamin K2 both in liver and prostate cancer. A group of US urologists studied the combination of vitamin K3, 50 mg per day, plus vitamin C at 5,000 mg per day in treating prostate cancer patients who had failed standard therapy. They showed that treatment significantly decreased the speed of rise in PSA, the serum marker of disease, while increasing the time it took for PSA levels to double.
- Eat like our early ancestors did... eat fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut and natto or take a vitamin K2 complex supplement.
Again, liver reigns supreme here providing 13.6 mcg (230% DV) of vitamin B12 per serving (6 capsules of our Grassfed Beef Liver). Vitamin B12 protects your prostate... that’s because it helps to minimize chromosomal breakage, reducing the risk of prostate cancer. Vitamin B12, as well as other B vitamins, are essential for optimal methylation which greatly influences the expression of genes, also known as epigenetics. The B vitamins also provide the required cofactors to regulate healthy gene expression.

The recurring theme here is liver but oysters and sardines will do too. Iron is essential for all cells but too little or too much could be potentially hazardous. This is mostly due to iron participation in oxidation-reduction reactions. The key is consume just the right amount... not too much, not too little. With that said, look to real nourishing foods like liver that provide a modest amount of heme iron (just 1 to 2 mg of iron per ounce which is about the same for a 6 capsule serving). On the other hand, if one needs a lot more heme iron in the diet, look no further than the ultimate blood builder — Spleen. This has 5 X's more heme iron than liver and supports immune and digestive health too.
- Eat like our early ancestor did... eat liver or a take our Grass Fed Liver and/or Prostate supplement on a regular basis.
Sea vegetables. Consider organic kelp granules to add in bone broth soup, sprinkle over salad or as a seasoning to all dishes. Clinical research has demonstrated that a sufficient intake of iodine can enhance breast and prostate health.* According to James Howenstine, MD, iodine deficiency is a recognized risk factor in the development of cancer of the breast and prostate.
- Eat like our early ancestors did... consume iodine rich foods such as kelp granules, wild caught fish and eggs from pastured, organic chickens.
It's virtually impossible to get enough magnesium from diet alone. Look for a transdermal magnesium oil. Apply to feet before bedtime and go to sleep. The prostate should be maintained with the most important mineral for muscle health... that's magnesium! The majority of the population is deficient in magnesium and the proactive potential of supplementing magnesium extends far beyond prostate health (think heart health, and magnesium shortage is also a primary root cause of high blood pressure, stroke and GERD). Magnesium deficiency is almost as common as the widespread shortages of zinc and selenium. It's estimated that 80% of us require more of this mineral.
Signs of deficiency include tension, heart irregularities, cramps, insomnia, seizures and high blood pressure. The problem with an advanced magnesium deficiency, which is typically evidenced by cramps, is that the stomach lining loses some of its capacity to absorb magnesium. In this instance, oral supplementation can be ineffective. Transdermal magnesium supplementation is an effective way to deliver magnesium directly through the skin.
- Consume magnesium rich foods and apply transdermal magnesium oil to feet before bed.
Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found that men with higher levels of melatonin had a 75 percent reduced risk for developing advanced prostate cancer compared with men who had lower levels of melatonin. AACR in the News. Melatonin may lower prostate cancer risk. On the hierarchy of health, sleep trumps almost everything else. It's the low hanging fruit that can affect health metrics more than just about anything else. It's the time when your body and your brain detox, recover, rebuild and restore. How amazing is your sleep? Here's what you need to do...
- Get morning sun exposure (at the same time everyday) to regulate sleep / wake cycles.
- Finish your last meal at least 3 to 4 hours before bedtime... trust me, you can do this.
- Earthing... you can do it the old fashioned way or you can use grounding sheets like we do (Google it). We go on barefoot hikes all the time... we use an EMF meter to make sure there are no electrical fields around our bed... we turn off the wifi (actually don't have wifi but you do, so turn it off at night)... put your phone in airplane mode and make sure that there are no electronics (nor lights) anywhere near you.
- Your sleep temperature should be between 64 and 68.
- Use blackout curtains and blackout blinds... room needs to be pitch black. No battery lights, no night lights, nothing!
- Use Himalayan salt lamps at sunset instead of regular lighting.
- Wear UVEX safety goggles/glasses at least 2 hours before going to bed... this one is seriously a big deal. They cost $10 and they make all the difference. If you're not going to do anything else, do this!
- Last but not least, sleep on the floor like our tribe does... why you ask... because our bodies were never meant to be in a cast, courtesy of your bed, all night. Why do you think you wake up feeling like a stiff Rick. Katy Bowman is a biomechanist and author of Move Your DNA. She sleeps on the floor. She got us sleeping on the floor.
If you're like most people reading this right now, there's little that you wouldn't do to reclaim these virtues. Turn off Netflix and start prioritizing your sleep! It's the single most influential thing you can do today (as in right now) to support your health journey. No, you don't have to go all in and start sleeping on the floor but you do have to do everything else.
- Sleep like our early ancestors did... at least spend the $10 on the UVEX glasses to boost melatonin. Go buy them... here's the link.
Avoid danger like our ancestors did (think lions, well-done or charbroiled meat, processed meat, pesticides, heavy metals, food additives, trans fats, sugars, fluoride, excessive wifi, emfs, vaccines, non-native water, plastics, non-native clothing, non-native bedding, non-native eating and drinking containers, flame retardants, etc). Avoiding and limiting well-done and processed meats, milk and heavy metals is a start. If you want to support your body's ability to optimally heal and be healthy, avoid these dangers and all other non-native compounds.
- Avoid dangers like our early ancestors did... think lions, well-done and processed meats, pesticides and all non-native compounds.
AVOID TOO MUCH ESTROGEN
According to experts on the impact of the environment and diet on fetal development, we now live in an environment that can be viewed as “a virtual sea of estrogens.” Increased exposure to environmental estrogens and other environmental pollutants during fetal development, as well as during the reproductive years, is suggested as a major reason for the tremendous rise in disorders of development and function of the male sexual system. The following are common strong estrogenic compounds that greatly contribute to estrogen dominance... commercially-raised meat and dairy products, insecticide or pesticide residues, tap water, conventional toiletries (shampoos, lotions, soaps, toothpastes, cosmetics and other personal care products), soft plastics, artificial food additives and of course, soy.
Avoid dangers like our early ancestors did... think commercially-raised meat and dairy, tap water and toiletries.
"Fasting can slow and even stop cancer progression and tumour growth, kill cancer cells and significantly improve chemotherapeutics and radiotherapy effectiveness. Fasting has also been shown to boost the immune system, de-fat the liver and pancreas and reduce chemotherapy side-effects. A five day water only fast is something to seriously consider. Leading cancer centres and experts such as Dr Valter Longo of University of Southern California, Professor Thomas Seyfried of Boston, Dr Dominic D´Agostino, Assistant Professor of Molecular Pharmacology, University of South Florida, and the Max-Plank Institute show that fasting can play an important therapeutic role in the treatment of cancer." — Chris Woollams, www.canceractive.com
While autophagy – the process by which cells “clean up” cellular “garbage” – has a complex relationship with cancer, it’s generally a positive process that protects cells from excessive oxidative stress. Fasting has been shown to induce “profound” neuronal autophagy, as well as general autophagy.
- Take Away - Eat (and don't eat)... just like our early ancestors did.
A mismatch between our ancestral and modern environments in terms of physical activity and natural movement comes to mind as being almost as big a mismatch as is diet. Based on paleoanthropological evidence from hominid fossils, and from the study of individuals living in contemporary hunter-gatherer societies, humans moved around quite a bit and were very active. People in hunter-gatherer groups probably walked around 10,000 steps a day.
What you do with your body is just as important as what you put into it... in maintaining a "healthy level of movement," one develops a healthy approach to consumption, where instincts become far more identifiable and beneficial. The well-being that builds from balanced movement trumps the need for consumption based satisfaction, such as food, pain killers, alcohol, drugs etc. Don't believe me... try it! Try moving more... I'm not asking you to put forth much effort here. I'm just asking you to put one foot in front of the other. Get 10,000 steps a day (or) walk for 60 to 90 minutes.
- Take Away - Move like our early ancestors did... aim to walk 90 minutes a day in divided doses.
It's not hard to see why liver is considered a nutritional powerhouse and included in our Grassfed Prostate supplement — liver fills nutrition gaps more completely than any other food. A whole food, nutrient dense diet provides the nourishment we need in order to express the strongest and healthiest version of ourselves... Food and ancestral living forms the basis of our health.
Our biology is truly remarkable as it relates to our ability to heal... we just need to create the right environment for healing to take place. Bruce Lipton's work regarding The Biology Of Belief demonstrates that we are indeed the architects of our experience. We can, and we do, create cell signals (perceptions) with our thoughts. So stay positive... think about the wonderful things in your life that you're grateful for... eat like our early ancestors did... get sensible sun exposure... move around like our ancestors did... sleep like our early ancestors did... mind your magnesium... and breathe like Wim Hof.
And yes, of course exercise is wonderful for us (because it's hormetic)... fasting is amazing for us (because it's hormetic)... cold and heat exposures (environmental conditioning) are incredible for us (because it's hormetic)... but these all require us to get uncomfortable. Just remember that comfort is not good for the organism. Push yourself a little to love yourself a lot.
high quality ORGANS & GLANDS
Okay, you're convinced! You're going to start incorporating nose-to-tail nourishment in your routine because, well... you're educated now... you understand, just as our early ancestors did, that they provide superlative health benefits that are missing in our modern diets. The next step is sourcing it. It's important that you source the highest quality because not all organs, glands and cartilage are created equal. Consider the source.
- Should Come From An Unpolluted Geographical Region — Isolated, Healthy, Pristine Lands
- Should Come From Pasture Raised Animals
- Should Come From Grass-Fed & Grass-Finished Animals
- Should Come From Animals That Are Hormone, Pesticide & GMO Free
- Should Also Be Ultra Pure... Absolutely No Fillers (or) Flow Agents, No Allergens
- Should Be Non-Defatted
- Should Be 100% Freeze Dried... Freeze Drying Preserves Heat Sensitive Biological Activity
SUGGESTED SUPPLEMENTS (3)
If you're going to pick just one ancestral supplement to start with, make it our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER... unless you need targeted support with another specific organ system (see below). If you are going to pick two supplements, our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER and our GRASS FED BEEF ORGANS provide complementary and synergistic nourishment. If you can add a third supplement, GRASS FED BONE MARROW fills fat soluble nutrition gaps, provides stem cells, bovine cartilage, glycosaminoglycans and the fat soluble activators that nutrition giant Dr. Weston Price extensively wrote about.
- Grass Fed Beef Liver
- Grass Fed Beef Organs (liver, heart, kidney, pancreas, spleen)
- Grass Fed Bone Marrow
On the other hand, if you're looking for targeted organ support, you may be interested in our GRASS FED BEEF HEART to support heart health (or) our GRASS FED THYROID to support a struggling thyroid (or) our GRASS FED THYMUS to support thymus function and immune health... you get the picture.* We have a nose-to-tail product line that can be found on our "Products" page. If you can't find what you're looking for (or) you're not sure what you're looking for, send us an email and we'll do everything we can to help.
GRASSFED BOVINE PROSTATE Summary
Our genome has evolved with the nourishment of nose-to-tail dining since the beginning of time. Grassfed Prostate is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine prostate containing powerful building blocks and biodirectors along with the most nourishing super food in existence — liver. Based on the concept of "like supports like," bovine prostate (w/ liver) may nourish and support our own prostate.*
Not all organs and glands are the same. Look for the highest quality bovine prostate... 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.
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 these beautiful creatures that sacrificed their lives so that we could be nourished.
NOTE: Bovine prostate can be found on the market by various names: prostate PMG, bovine prostate extract, prostate glandular, etc, ect.
