The most important gland in the body is the pituitary. At
the brain's base, the pituitary carries signals of emotional disturbance
from the nervous system to the other endocrine glands, especially the
thyroid, adrenals and gonads. The pituitary affects sexual functions,
growth, intelligence, ability to see, and blood pressure. The
person whose pituitary is abnormal may become a giant or a midget or
excessively fat. The pituitary can affect the flow of a mother's milk or
it can cause menstrual disorders.
If your body's machinery is working too swiftly or too
slowly, your thyroid gland may be failing to do its work properly. The
thyroid controls the body's consumption of oxygen. Doctors call this the
"basal metabolic rate". An over-active thyroid can cause
nervousness, irritability, worry, increase in sexual drive. These people
often have bulging eyeballs, body trembling, and rapid heart action.
Persons whose thyroids are not active enough usually have dulled
emotions, poor intelligence and memory.
Goiter is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland. In certain
areas, goiter is commonly caused by lack of sufficient iodine in food
and drinking water.
The parathyroid glands enable your body to use the
calcium taken in through such foods as milk. If teeth and bones are to
be good, the parathyroids must function normally. This is especially
true, of course, in a woman carrying an unborn child.
If your parathyroids furnish your body with too much calcium, your bones
might become excessively brittle or you might develop kidney stones. You
would probably feel lazy mentally and physically.
The adrenals might be called "anger glands".
When you are upset by fear of similar emotions, your adrenals secrete
extra amounts of their hormone. This speeds up the heart, halts action
in the digestive system, makes you less susceptible to fatigue. Your
liver releases energy-giving sugar into the blood stream. You are ready
for action. The adrenals also affect the sexual interest and they
stimulate secretions from the gonads. Over-active adrenals can
produce in a six-year-old boy the beard, deep voice, and sexual
development of an eighteen-year-old. The "bearded lady" of the
circus sideshow is another example. Under-active adrenals can give their
victims weakness, poor blood circulation, insomnia.
The pancreas is the gland that contains the "Islands
of Langerhans", which produce insulin. The insulin passes directly
into your blood stream where it regulates your body's use of sugar as
fuel. If your pancreas produces insufficient insulin, sugar will
accumulate in your blood, producing the condition called diabetes
mellitus by scientists. Some persons suffer from over-active
pancreas. Their bodies have an excess of insulin, and sugar is burned up
too fast. This can result in a low level of activity.
In women, the gonads are called ovaries. They create the
reproductive cell, called the ovum. They control such characteristics as
breast development and menstruation. The diminishing function of the
ovaries, which comes in a woman's middle age, is the menopause or
"change of life". Men's gonads are called testes. They
create reproductive cells, called spermatozoa and control masculine
characteristics. Abnormal function of the gonads can cause strong
or weak sexual activity but such cases actually are rare. Aside from the
psychological factors, sex feelings in most people are the result of
teamwork by all the glands.
JC Tonic® is very pleasant to taste.
One mono-dose of JC Tonic is
taken once a day. If the regular dosage of JC Tonic keeps
you feeling uncomfortable for the first day or two, reduce the dosage to
half -- only very seldom is this reaction to JC Tonic
Such reaction is due to certain physiological
factors met only in rare cases. It is not dangerous, only annoying.
For adults, larger doses than recommended can
be taken if found beneficial. JC Tonic is particularly good in a
larger dose after a big meal, to stimulate rapid digestion.
As JC Tonic commences its work, it is
