Shark Cartilage Powder


Shark cartilage is most famously used for Kaposi’s sarcoma, that is more common in people with HIV infection. Shark cartilage is also used for arthritis, psoriasis, wound healing, damage to the retina of the eye due to diabetes, and inflammation of the intestine (enteritis).

Shark cartilage contains over 40% pure collagen protein, plus essential and non essential amino acids. Collagen and Amino Acids are necessary for elasticity of the tissues, healing of cracked skin, torn ligaments and tendons and growth and rejuvenation of skin and connective tissues.

It is also a good source of minerals-calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron and chromium, manganese and silica. These components are essential for the maintenance and normal function of cells, muscles, bones and joints.

Glycosaminoglycans attract and retain moisture to resist compression and deliver nutrients to cells that need it. They are also important building blocks for joint cartilage components, shock absorbing properties and replenishment of joint fluid lubricant.
