Pituitary gland spicy                     I see Mexican food in my near future. Did you know that the pituitary gland releases endorphins whenever you eat spicy food? Endorphins are the lovely chemicals that get released in our brains, both in response to pain and love. They have a huge fan base because they dampen pain messages in the brain. These natural painkillers go about doing their delightful deeds whenever you exercise, are excited, and even when you're afraid! So if you're feeling blue, try some habaneros, wasabi, or just plain old hot sauce. Disclaimer: We cannot be held responsible for watering eyes, burned mouths, or public embarrassment. 
iheartguts-wholesale-092We are extremely excited about our new organ and gland lapel pins, so much so, in fact, that I'm writing about them again. Though you would appreciate seeing them all together and labeled and such. We're gonna have to play a round of "Pin the Pituitary on the Body" around here. Actually, that could be really fun...
img_1541We just posted a ton of pins! Whew! Every single gut and gland now comes in lapel pin form -- want a testicle pin? You can have it. We've even added a couple new gland friends -- the sebaceous gland (when clogged, these guys give us hated acne), and the sweat gland (for the exercise fiend in your life). We've got the entire metabolic team, from salivary glands to the thyroid, from the stomach to the intestine. Check 'em out.
