Parotid PMG® by Standard Process (From Seed to Supplement)
|90 Tablets – $19|
Parotid PMG supports healthy function of the saliva-producing parotid gland.
- Provides uniquely derived nucleoprotein-mineral extracts that support cellular health
- Supports healthy parotid gland function†
The parotid gland is one of the largest pairs of salivary glands located on each side of the face, below and in front of the ear. The parotid salivary glands secrete saliva to initiate the digestive process. Saliva contains organic substances, including enzymes (amylase and lysozyme), proteins (serum albumin, globulin, and mucin), and small amounts of urea, uric acid, creatine, and amino acids.
The parotid glands also secrete a serous substance that contains ptyalin, an amylase enzyme necessary for carbohydrate digestion. Saliva also helps cleanse the upper digestive tract by providing several materials that support intestinal flora. Contained in saliva are significant amounts of protein antibodies, thiocyanate ions, and several proteolytic enzymes, such as lysozyme, that help maintain healthy intestinal flora.
Suggested Use: One tablet per meal, or as directed.
How Parotid PMG Keeps You Healthy
Maintains cellular health
Protomorphogen™ extract is the brand name of Standard Process’ extracts derived from nucleoprotein-mineral molecules. The foundation for the function of these uniquely formulated nucleoprotein-mineral extracts comes from the antigen- antibody reaction that takes place during normal cell maintenance. The antigenic properties promote healthy cellular division, function, and growth. When a tissue needs support, at least a dozen different compounds are formed that can cause white blood cells to travel together toward the compromised area. These compounds include degenerative products of the tissues themselves. They strongly activate the macrophage system, and within a few hours, the macrophages begin to devour the destroyed tissue byproducts. At times, the macrophages can also affect the structure of the remaining healthy cells. The bovine parotid PMG™ extract in Parotid PMG appears to neutralize the circulating antibodies, thereby contributing to the maintenance of cellular health.†
Improves calcium absorption and supports nervous system function.
Calcium lactate is a highly soluble calcium salt and naturally bioavailable, changing to calcium bicarbonate (the type used by the body) in one chemical step. Unlike some other forms of calcium that are less soluble in water and need higher acid concentrations to be absorbed, calcium lactate exists near a more neutral pH and does not require acid conditions to work. Calcium is important for the healthy functioning of the nervous system and transmission of nerve impulses. The calcium lactate in Parotid PMG is derived from pure-vegetable sources of calcium, not dairy sources.†
Sustains metabolic efficiency
While magnesium is present in most cells in only minute quantities, it plays an important role in human metabolism, as does its partner, calcium. It functions in such reactions as nerve conduction and nerve excitability, transfer of energy, muscular activity, and many other specific processes. Magnesium functions as a cofactor, assisting enzymes in catalyzing many chemical reactions. Magnesium and calcium are synergistic, meaning that what they do for the body together,
they cannot perform on their own.†
