NutriCology - Hypothalamus Natural Glandular -100 Vegetarian Capsules Nutricology Hypothalamus Natural Glandular provides tissue from the hypothalamus gland. Nutricology's Hypothalamus' natural glandular material is processed by lyophilization of glands derived from government-inspected, range-fed animals, raised in New Zealand without hormones or antibiotics. The material is frozen, then subjected to a high vacuum that vaporizes moisture directly from the solid state, thereby maintaining its activity. NutriCology Hypothalamus Natural Glandular is hypoallergenic. Glandulars Glandular tissues can be rich sources of nutrients, enzymes and other factors that support specific gland-related metabolism and physiological function. When prepared with sufficient technical sophistication and sensitivity to their delicate nature, glandulars can retain a significant portion of their biological activity. Nutricology's glandular products are produced from government inspected, range-grazed animals raised in New Zealand without the use of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics. They are lyophilized (freeze dried), which means the material is frozen, then subjected to a high vacuum that vaporizes moisture directly from the solid state, thereby maintaining their biological activity. They are highly potent and are generally well tolerated. NutriCology suggests that glandular products not be refrigerated, but be stored in a cool, dry place. Humidity in refrigerators may reduce their stability.
