Grass-fed Bovine Collagen by Ancestral Supplements
Many traditional peoples have been living for millennia believing in the wisdom that eating the organs of healthy animals supports the health of the eating individual. Ancient knowledge states that eating an animal organ supports the same organ in the human body and provides it with the right nutrients. Ancestral Supplements’ grass-fed bovine collagen contains a blend of trachea collagen, scapula collagen, and marrow-rich bone. The collagen is purified by means of natural enzymes and then freeze-dried to retain its live qualities.

The power of bovine collagen
As early as 1930, pioneer Francis Potter wrote about the powerful properties of a good bone broth. He concluded that the secret lies in the hydrophilic nature of bone broth being packed with large, water-absorbing molecules known as proteoglycans: molecules consisting of glycosaminoglycans bound to a protein core. These molecules, together with water and collagen, form the cartilage tissue of bovines. According to Potter, taking bone broth is beneficial for both body and mind and has effects in the body down to the cellular level. Grass-fed bovine collagen by Ancestral Supplements also contains bioactive growth factors (a diverse group of proteins involved in various biological functions through our body) and the water-absorbing glycosaminoglycans (GAG) including chondroitin sulfate.
How do organ supplements work?
Proteins play an important role in the formation of new cells. Your body needs essential amino acids to transform them through protein synthesis into nucleoproteins, antibodies, enzymes and tissue cells. Organ meats contain a variety of essential amino acids, but also fatty acids, bioactive components and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are not found in such high concentrations in other animal or vegetable protein sources. Animal organs also contain tissue-specific nutrients that can be directly transported through our body to the corresponding organs in our body. These organ-specific nutrients are like puzzle pieces that fit the nutritional needs of the same organs in the human body hand-in-glove. Thus, through organ meats, we can obtain essential nutrients that benefit our entire body and which also contain components that specifically target the target organ in our body corresponding to the supplement.
Eating head to tail
For all who pursue a sustainable, ethical and healthy lifestyle, the head-to-tail principle, or evolutionary eating, presents an interesting starting point when eating animal products. When we feed ourselves in this inclusive way, we not only ensure that as little meat as possible is lost, eating animal organs also corresponds to the ancient human tradition of eating organ meat because of the high concentration of nutrients in it. The knowledge that organ meats are extremely rich in essential nutrients already existed among many ancient civilizations. Animal organs, for example, contain high concentrations of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K and E, as well as magnesium, iron, choline, iodine and vitamin B12. Of all of these nutrients most people following a typical Western diet can use some extras. Moreover, the specific composition of nutrients of an animal organ is in line with the nutrients that the same organ in the human body is in need of.
According to the principles of Weston Price
Canadian dentist Weston Price (1870-1948) studied the dietary habits in traditional cultures around the world. He discovered that the original inhabitants of Canada attached great importance to consuming meat from animal organs; especially bone marrow was loved. Organs were a staple in the daily diet of our early ancestors, and for good reason: intake of fat-soluble vitamins and many of the essential minerals was accomplished through eating animal organs.
Organ meat of the highest quality
New Zealand was made for the breeding of healthy livestock. The country is unique, the climate is moderate and pasture grass grows fresh and green all year round. This means that cows can eat the food that is healthiest for them every day of the year. The cattle used for Ancestral Supplements products come from New Zealand and are strictly grass-fed. They are kept without the use of hormones, pesticides or antibiotics (all of which are widely used in factory farming) and the health of the animals is closely monitored. Strict government licenses, certification and control mechanisms ensure that the highest quality is achieved. Freeze-drying of the organs preserves vitamins, cofactors and minerals.
About Ancestral Supplements
The Texan company Ancestral Supplements stands for high-quality organ supplements. Co-founder Brian Johnson believes that we as human beings are perfectly attuned to an environment that unfortunately no longer exists and that the modern world does not rhyme with our current bodies. According to Johnson, many of our health complaints arise from this discrepancy. The solution must lie in finding ways to recreate our ancestral way of life in our modern world. Ancestral Supplements' ambitious mission is to "bring back what the modern world has put aside in our diet and in our overall way of life, in order to make people strong, healthy and happy again." To accomplish this mission, the company has put together supplements that make it easier for everyone to benefit from animal organs and glands.
