New Roots Herbal Shark Cartilage 750mg
Cartilage is the tough elastic connective tissue found in and between the bones of mammals. The skeleton of sharks is almost entirely comprised of cartilage. New Roots Herbal’s Shark Cartilage is obtained from sharks caught for food purposes only.
Helps with inflammatory and dermal disease: rheumatoid arthritis, hemorrhoids, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, puritanis ani, acute skin allergies, osteoarthritis, free radical exposure and damage.
Shark cartilage is rich in glycosaminoglycans or mucopolysaccharides, large macromolecules which are found in all our joints, blood vessels and organs. In addition, shark cartilage is very low in fat content and thus does not require harsh organic solvent extractions to remove the fat.
Directions of Use: Adults - Take 2–5 capsules daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner. If you are taking other medications, take this product a few hours before or after them.
Duration of use: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 1 month.
Sharks have powerful immune systems. One agent which may be responsible for this incredible immunity is the presence in shark cartilage of an anti-angiogenesis substance, which inhibits the growth of blood vessels into solid tumours, and thus keeps them from growing. A protein substance was extracted from shark cartilage with antiangiogenesis and antitumour effects.
