Extremely rich in chondroitin and glucosamine (two essential components for ensuring full cartilage health) and synovial liquid (which is also a pain-killer), shark cartilage has proven its efficacy in various tests and trials. These showed that 97% of patients experienced a total or partial reduction in pain. One hundred percent saw a successful reduction of oedemas, while 72% had a vast improvement in joint function. And the addition of squalene to the shark cartilage saw even better results. A special antioxidant, squalene improves the healing of worn and damaged cartilage, reduces joint inflammation and accelerates the healing power of shark cartilage.
The amazing powers of Squalene
Squalene increases oxygen uptake capacity and reduces blood lactate levels. Squalene inhibits growth of cancer cells. Various studies suggest that Squalene can help prevent as well as fight established cancers because it stimulates macrophages (the strongest immune cells) and rejuvenates and activates cellular repair. It has also been shown to enhance the antitum our effect of chemotherapeutic agents without side effect.
Squalene is an incredible antioxidant, the strongest form of which comes from sharks, and is very beneficial to osteoarthritis sufferers. It is also found in low quantities in olives & olive oil and may be the reason most Mediterranean cultures do not suffer arthritis like us in the UK. Not only does it improve and facilitate the healing of worn and damaged cartilage thereby alleviating pain from arthritis, it also reduces joint inflammation and swelling associated with arthritis.
