Science tell us it is the cell nucleus that contains the first organizer of the protein structural form generated in normal cell growth and repair. The first organizer form generated is that fraction of the chromosome of the cell which catalyzes the synthesis of new cell protein in growth and repair.

Pancreas Cell Nucleus Extract is a mineral product of the Pancreas Gland Cell Nucleus. It is a tissue extract intended to supply the specific determinant factors of the above mentioned organ and to aid in improving t he local nutritional environment for that organ.
Pancreas Gland Anatomy and Physiology
The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine and produces hormones for release into the blood. The digestive enzymes are crucial to the proper breakdown of ingested fats, proteins and sugars. Pancreatic lipase is the most important enzyme in fat digestion. The epithelial lining of the small intestine also releases a small amount of lipase.
Both pancreatic and intestinal lipase act to digest fat. The pancreatic hormones are insulin, which decreases blood sugar, and glucagon, which increases blood sugar. Together, the two hormones play an important role in regulating the sugar level of the blood.
The pancreas has many jobs to do. It must be functioning properly because over or under secretion can lead to serious physical disturbances, that affect one's mental state. The isolated masses of cells that make up the pancreas must be kept healthy in order to keep the pancreatic ducts clean and allow insulin to pass through. The pancreas also produces oxocrine secretion which is discharged into the duodenum. Other functions of this important gland are to receive blood through branches of the splenic-hepatic arteries and sympathetic fibers from the celiac plexus.
The pancreas works in conjunction with the valves of the Vagus Nerve and also with glands such as the adrenal cortex and the thyroid. It is the regulator of hormones and metabolism.
Insufficiency of the pancreas may be considered one of the most commonly omitted diagnoses, in the patient suffering from chronic fatigue, emaciation, lowered resistance and a variety of general symptoms not directly associated with sufficiency of the gastric secretions.
Substance in fact to the above statement is provided by Harrower on page 482 of his book, Practical Endocrinology, which reads, in part, as follows:
"The frequency with which diabetics suffer from concomitant infections is well known. Small pimples often become serious boils·and may spread with amazing rapidity. Infections that may ordinarily be considered trivial frequently become quite serious in the diabetic.
In the experimental work on animals it has been found that the removal of the pancreas in one step is almost invariably fatal. The significant fact is t hat these animals do not heal. This may be obviated by the implantation, in the abdominal wall, of a small piece of pancreatic tissue, preferably from the tail of the pancreas·even a small graft is enough to preserve the immunizing response to infection. This seems to afford the best kind of evidence of a relation between the internal secretion of the pancreas and the power to overcome infection.
With the notable exception of diabetes, the clinically associated conditions are rather obscure, protein and carbohydrate metabolism (with their many ramifications) being primary considerations. We therefore, do not list specific entities in this case.
Factors, Symptoms and Signs related to Insufficient Pancreas Health Clinical Considerations
Prominent Clinical Signs and Symptoms
(Symptom characteristics relate mostly to carbohydrate or Protein metabolism. The latter being manifest as a muscular dystrophy or atrophy)
1. Hyperglycemia (Diabetic tendency
2. Emaciation (Wasting diseases) of
3. Upper Back pain (Pain in area of clavicles)
4. Acholic stool (Undigested foods, light or clay colored)
5. Healing reactions (Diabetic ulcers, etc.)
Possible Etiological Background of the above:
Since the discovery of insulin, this function of the pancreas has tended to overshadow the important role of this organ in other aspects intermediate metabolism, specifically its role in protein digestion. Recall that trypsin, a product of the pancreatic juice, is a potent Proteolytic enzyme, and the possibility exists for this enzyme to be excessive and become systemic in distribution. Emaciation and other wasting situations may, according to controlled observations, result from this.
Laboratory Tests: Need Shown by:
Blood Sugar Elevated Enzyme Test (These have largely been unsatisfactory)
Discussion: One of the most commonly omitted diagnoses is that of pancreas dysfunction in the absence of diabetes, yet this organ provides the main bulwark between digestion and the assimilation of foods. The difficulty arises from inadequate methods of diagnosis.
The Tissue and Function supported by feeding with Pancreas cell extract is: Local nutritional environment of the pancreas cells.
Indigestion-Poor digestion can result from insufficient production of digestive enzymes in the pancreas, a problem that is most common in older people. Since glandular pancreas contains large concentrations of proteases, amylases and lipases, supplementation with this tissue can be particularly useful in geriatrics.
Diabetes mellitus-If the pancreas produces too little insulin, the sugar level of the blood builds up to extreme levels, which can eventually result in dehydration and coma. This is diabetes mellitus, which is treated with a controlled diet and/or the administration of insulin. Historically, whole- pancreas tissue was used to treat diabetics successfully, and one wonders how many diabetics today could avoid the side effects and danger of insulin therapy with pancreas tissue, proper detoxification procedures and other key nutrient supplementation. Incidentally, all diabetics in acidosis may need potassium, as provided in the Alkabase powder.
Hypoglycemia-Hypoglycemia is the biochemical opposite of diabetes: blood sugar is too low rather than too high. As with diabetes, the pancreas is directly involved and supplementation with glandular pancreas can be important.
Another common condition that originates from pancreas stress is reflex pain into the back.
Dosage/Directions for use:
As a dietary supplement one-three tablets to be taken three times daily with each meal as directed.
Note: All tissue extracts should be taken as follows:
First week: 1 per day taken with the largest meal
Second week: 2 per day taken one after lunch and one after dinner
Third week: 3 per day taken one after each meal.
*Some reports indicate benefits from increasing dosage to as high as 12 per day. This should be regulated upon symptomatic basis.
*In all cases of providing cell extracts for nutritional factors, long term therapy should be stressed rather than acceleration of dosage
For maximum effectiveness cell extracts should be taken with 3-24+ Springreen greens tablets. This supplies an excellent array of all needed organic minerals in the ideal natural form.
Each tablet supplies: 200 mg. Pancreas Extract---of bovine source, calcium stearate and cellulose as tableting agents.
Upper back pain when from a pancreas cause usually subsides within hours upon the provision of proper nourishment factors. Blood sugar levels and protein metabolism are to be judged over a period of weeks. Digestion may be variably improved, differing with each case.
