I’m in my 50’s and have been looking after my health for years. My research indicated that consuming nose to tail was ultimate. I wasn’t that keen on offal from the butcher; ancestral had the answer. My intestinal tract has been purring along better than it’s ever been ... Thanks Brian. I also recommend the MOFO and looking forward to Fish eggs....
I feel I am seeing incremental improvements as my journey continues. One of the largest differences I have noticed is the increased energy that I have had! Over the weekend I think I got more done than I have in a long time! Not because I forced myself but because I felt the energy and drive that I haven’t had for some time. I have also noticed my mood is improved. Also, my COPD does seem to be better and I am able to breathe more deeply and it is less strained. Overall I am extremely pleased as I have not had any negative effects (stomach upset, etc) and only positive overall improvements. I believe my progress will only continue the longer I take the supplements and my body becomes “more healed and nourished” from the product. These products are truly not snake oil and so much of the crap that is out there today. The market is saturated with a pill for this and that so a quick dollar can be made on consumers. I truly believe that your product offers real benefits, real nutrition, and customer care that is not offered anywhere else.
I'm here sitting at my desk with your letter that I received with my recent supplement purchases of Living Collagen, Beef Liver, and Beef Organs. Last year is when I first stumbled upon you guys, it was through Amazon in which I had only bought the Beef Liver and Beef Organs while I started giving Intermittent Fasting a try. My third purchase (this recent one), I added the Living Collagen and ordered directly from your site.
I'm so glad I decided to look through yours and your wife's blogs and "About Me". I had yet to really come across something that resonated so IMMENSLEY with my own thoughts and views. I'm not even going to lie- for a long time now, I thought perhaps I was just aiming too high on what I wanted for myself, my husband, and my 3 kiddos. Even the school system gets me all sorts of mad- I don't allow my kids to eat the school lunches/snacks. I make all of their meals from home and send it with them. You wouldn't believe the grief I get over it from some fellow parents and even friends and family. According to them, I'm just making mine and my kids life's "harder" and "hurting them more by not letting them just be kids"....It's all such nonsense to me...and usually I can just brush it aside...but sometimes... it does get under my skin.
My life goal is to start my own homestead...teaching my children how to live sustainably and to love life at the same time. We already have our chickens and goats and recently made the switch to zero waste living (as much as possible at least) and I hope to start making my own soaps here shortly. Mother Earth has so much to offer us and I'm still figuring it out. I really gained a lot of insight from your story - it was SUCH a breath of fresh air. I definitely don't feel so alone anymore!
Thank you for taking the time out of your life and sharing knowledge with the rest of the world- much needed knowledge that quite honestly will save us all if we just adhere to our basic ancestral needs. We started your supplements because we were not getting any organs in our diet and I know that's important. I feel BETTER when using your supplements, in mind and body. When I started incorporating them the first go around, I noticed a difference literally in 2 weeks for sure (2 capsules a day starting out). Even my workouts were way more efficient. I didn't stick with purchasing them after I ran out because we were a single income family for a while there (husband is in the military) and though your prices are definitely reasonable, I just couldn't fit it into our budget long term at that time. I think we can manage it now though, and I'm very excited!
So, this definitely did not end up being a "quick" email haha. PLEASE, NO need to send a discount code, I truly just wanted to share my bit from sweet old Montana and to thank you for taking a stand and reaching out to help others. You guys are the good in the world! Please, don't ever stop!
I have quite severe digestive problems: intense food sensitivities, a highly restrictive diet, and lots of discomfort and struggle trying to get the nutrients and calories I need. I used to experiment a lot with research chemicals, such as GH-releasing peptides, to try and biohack my way to normal function, but in spite of the gains I saw, eventually all of these strategies ended up sabotaging my own success as a loss of returns led to them causing sickness and other complications.
The glandular supplements at Ancestral like a natural biohack: each of these organs REALLY DOES have a nutrient profile highly matched to the organs in our own bodies, and our bodies know what to do with them! I have struggled to be able to digest meat for a long time, as I did when I was young, and garner the benefits from the b-vitamins and other nutrients they have to offer. It is only through the use of Ancestral that I've been able to prevail for the first time in YEARS!
Taking my Beef Organ blend is the highlight of my day. I add it to a lovely egg-based custard dish that I make, and it adds a meaty umami flavor that is to die for, and leaves me feeling energized and focused so that I don't get caught in the afternoon malaise which is so easy to fall prey to. Unlike the drugs I used to experiment with, which were clearly hacking my body, this formulation feels simple and nutritive and REAL, and like it will never stop giving returns if I respect it and use it properly.
I highly recommend trying this out in eggs! It adds a wonderful flavor and good effects if you cook them gently. I use 3 capsules a day and that seems to do it for me, so don't even think that you can't get more value than you might think from them, and if you have any issues with consistency or a contraindication Brian, the owner, is a kindly man who is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that his company has helped rather than hurt. Ancestral is easily one of the most responsive and caring supplement companies I have ever come across.
I originally purchased the Beef Liver and took my time going through that first bottle . I didn't really notice any changes in the first few weeks, so let the bottle sit half full for awhile. Then a few months later, picked them up again, but this time I did see positive impacts: slightly better energy, better sleep, and just an improved sense of well-being.
I spent a lot of time reading other people's reviews of all the AS products as well as information on the company's website. I decided to reorder the Liver, and added the Beef Organs. The Beef Organs are even better! So far, I've noticed improved digestion, less bloating, and more energy. For years, I've also had what I believe are autoimmune issues or imbalances/deficiencies of some sort. My skin tends to react (dryness or rashes) and oddly, one of my ears has been "plugged" almost constantly for years. I saw my regular doctor, an ENT, and an allergist, but none were able to identify any problems. Now when I take the Beef Organs, my ear pops and generally stays equalized for a couple of hours. The effect seems better when I take the Beef Organs and Liver together.
I emailed the company to inquire about other recommended products to further the benefits and help address some other health concerns, and Brian wrote me back with his suggestions. He answered my follow-up questions, and just reached out again to check in on my progress! Since I just started on a couple of the other products, I will write more on those when I know more.
I have been taking Ancestral Supplements for about three years and have loved them. Mainly a maintenance dose of 1 Bone and 1 Liver a day. It was helping me immensely, even at that low dose to overcome Candida and fatigue. My three children, 22, 20 and 17 have also noticed it perks them up and keeps them from getting sick or experiencing acne as much.
We eat a pretty healthy diet that is sometimes Paleo but allows for some gluten free and sometimes Holiday eating.
I have noticed at 44, I can no longer get away with the Holiday eating (dairy, gluten and sugar). I have iodine deficiency, thyroid issues with weight loss, constipation, adrenal fatigue, cold body and a little psoriasis on my leg. I have experienced brain fog that is either food intolerance to coffee and chocolate and a few other things or seems related to the candida and maybe some autoimmune issues, like Hashimotos. I went to see a Chiropractic Neurologist who suggested IGG food allergy testing, Stool samples to look at the microbiome and pathogens, an adrenal test, full Thyroid panel and neurotransmitters. The price was very high, and did not even include supplements. So I started thinking...I really have tried Herbs and probiotics, and have had some success, but the Ancestral supplements are really quite dramatic. Let me read some more testimonials. Well there were so many with problems just like me. Women who had been on antibiotics and have had several pregnancies and years breast feeding. People who live overall healthy lives but who are struggling with adrenal and thyroid issues. So, I decided to up my Ancestral. Today I am taking 2 bone 2 liver 2 Pancreas ( to improve enzyme production) 2 Adrenal 3 Beef Organs (heart, liver, spleen, pancreas,...)- a nice well rounded sample of several important digestive and immune stimulating organs
I have just ordered more to take 2 a day: Colostrum, Kidney, and Collagen, will be new additions. I'm pooping 2x a day instead of having to take senna tea or cascara sagrada every day. I have more energy, better sleep, not as cold, weight is stabilizing. Skin is better and overall well being. The brain fog is lifting and I'm feeling more like me again!
I can see huge improvements in a situation that was feeling overwhelming due to cost and just disheartening symptoms.
I also take: Renew Life probiotics 1/2 cap probiotics 2x day Lugol's liquid iodine 6 drops 1x 1/2 tsp Biotic Silver for Candida and Sibo 1x day in Berkey filtered water Vit D3 Quercetin Bromelain L-glutamine powder 1000mg Liposomal Vit C Lugol's iodine
Brian Johnson, the founder of the company is, as many have said before, very caring, helpful, and accommodating. He practices what he preaches in terms of eating nose to tail, eating clean, avoiding stress, exercise negative emotions and emf. He is very focused on family and building strong community. He is overall a stellar human in a world where many won't lend a helping hand or go out of their way for anyone.
I feel so blessed! This company, leader and these supplements are an answer to prayer in my life. I believe Jesus has promised me full healing. I saw the time 9:22 all the time on the clock and I believe that was a sign to me from God. Matthew 9:22 says, 'Take Heart daughter, your Faith has healed you!' I do believe Ancestral is a part of my healing through God's created beings, humans and cows. I also believe God will finish this work in me! More updates to come. Be blessed. And try it already!!!(:
Ok guys. I have a lot of health reasons for ordering supplements from this company, main one being extremely low iron levels and very low energy. I had WLS a couple years ago and haven’t been taking care of myself. Found these guys and knew I needed to do this for myself. Here’s how I feel-(the owner of the company, Brian, is soooo nice and helpful and reached out to talk about things and this is what I told him. Hope it helps!! - I’m doing great and feeling a LOT better already. Literally, feel myself coming back to life! I go in soon for an iron infusion so hoping I see my iron level has gone up, though I know it’s only been a couple weeks since I started your supplements. But I definitely notice more energy and feeling healthier. Hope it only continues to get better, I think I have a long way to go:) thanks again so so much!!
My journey into eating more meat and protein has been an interesting one. Prior to eating this way I used to take lots of standard supplements. As the quality of my food has increased, I realized I didn't need as many supplements but needed more diversity in them. I have been taking Beef Organs for about a year. They give me increased energy, an overall sense of well-being and enhanced mood. I take several other Ancestral Supplements as well and I encourage you to try different ones and see what works for you. After you order your supplements, you will receive an email from the owner of the company, Brian. I figured it's just an automated courtesy letter in an attempt to come across as friendly. Recently I had some questions about one of their products and decided I would try emailing Brian. I was shocked by the response. Not only is he the owner of the company, but It is clear that he truly loves what he does and believes in the benefits and the business. He exhibits passion, integrity and a refreshing approach to business and life. Now I feel like I have a partner on my journey to find the best nutrition I can for my body and family. Thanks Brian!
Your supplements have definitely been helping me, giving me some energy and hope, before taking AS I felt like I was dying.
I just recently increased to two pills of organs, bone and marrow and lung per day. A couple of days ago, I started taking pancreas, 1 capsule each before lunch and before dinner. Today I am planning to add half a capsule of gallbladder with ox bile both for lunch and dinner, hope I tolerate it and will help my overall GI issues.
I have bought more AS products on standby. I now have the spleen, intestine, tallow, colostrum. I am sneezing less especially during spring season that my allergies are supposed to be at its worst. For now I am giving AS colostrum to my 11 yr old son. He is a healthy boy but I wanted him to have some since he had never had my colostrum when he was born and I thought it’s a good protection for him since he’s been back to in-person schooling. His left eye was red for some unknown reason and when I started giving him the colostrum it started to clear up and now the redness is almost gone in three days of taking colostrum 1 pill twice a day. He might not need to take it daily forever maybe just pulsing it.
So far, with organs and bone and marrow I have noticed they help me with energy, maybe less nausea too with bone and marrow. The lungs, I feel like it’s helping me breathe a little better and (excuse me for the tmi) lighter colored sputum. The pancreas lessened my stomach pain after eating. All the improvements are subtle for now also because I am taking it in low doses but I can tell it’s there. I still have a long way to go.
Thank you so much for your supplements helping people to heal from illnesses and get a better quality of life. Looking forward to more significant improvements in the weeks to come.
I'm so grateful to Brian for providing such wonderful supplements! After experiencing symptoms of iron deficiency last year I came across the AS Liver supplements on Amazon and after reading all the 5 star reviews, I decided to give it a try. My symptoms went away very soon after starting the Liver and I have been a faithful customer ever since. I am now taking Liver, Organs, Bone & Marrow daily as my multi-vitamins, and recently added in Stomach/Intestines, and Gallbladder for targeted support.
After being paleo since 2013 and still struggling with carb addiction and a mass of ongoing food sensitivities, trying GAPS and low FODMAP on many occasions but never finding the healing I was after, I decided last month to jump on the carnivore bandwagon. It was actually a FB post of Brian's that originally led me to do some research into this WOE. Starting the Gallbladder supplement helped tremendously in the transition. In this short time I have found much relief from never ending digestive issues and my cognitive function is improving too (i.e., healing depression and brain fog). I anticipate eating this way indefinitely, and am hoping to get to the point where I can indulge in plant based foods on special occasions without it sending me into a tailspin of addiction and ill health. The organ pills are a great blessing, knowing I’m getting the nutrients I need in a whole food way that my body recognizes and can assimilate easily, and not having to depend on eating offal on a regular basis, because, fact is, I wouldn’t.
I just can’t say thank you enough, with these supplements and Brian's insights, I finally feel like I am on the road to true health.
