We’ve got a thymus plush now! This incredible gland is an important part of the immune system, it works hardest in young bodies and declines after puberty. The thymus, located inside your chest, nestled between your lungs, provides a place for T-cells to mature before they go out and kick some virus, bacteria or parasite booty. Thanks, Thymus! Also, if you’ve ever eaten sweetbreads, that’s the (not human) thymus you’re munching on.

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.
