Description Supplement Facts

Shark Cartilage is derived from 100% pure freeze dried backbone of sharks and is a natural source of chondroitin and glycosaminoglycans (GAG's). Our powder is thoroughly tested for important shark components and contains no solvents, bleaches or chemical, processing agents. The sharks harvested are also used for food purposes.

Cartilage is one of the connective tissues within animals. In humans, it provides cushioning between bone joints, as in the knee, or constructs softer, non-bone features of the body, such as parts of the ear and nose. In the shark's body, the fin and part of its snout are made of cartilage. Sharks have a strong resistance to infection and immunity to cancer. Scientists have linked this to the proteins and minerals that exist in the animal's fin cartilage, which is ground, placed into capsules, and sold as a nutritional supplement.

Arthritis Relief

Scientists have taken a close look at one of Shark Cartilage's key components which is Chondroitin Sulfate. What they found is this seems to help patients with arthritis, so therefore it makes sense that shark cartilage would be beneficial to arthritis sufferers. Chondroitin exists naturally in the human body and is the primary component of cartilage, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. It is also a popular over-the-counter arthritis treatment. When taken orally as a pill or applied to the site of pain as a liniment, chondroitin helps the body by promoting cartilage growth to relieve symptoms related to osteoarthritis. The UMMC writes that it absorbs fluid that builds up near joints, keeping existing cartilage healthy. One of the main sources of non-human chondroitin is shark fins. An article published in a 2010 edition of the Biological Pharmaceutical Bulletin supports its use for arthritis relief, concluding that it is "very likely to be multifunctional chondroprotective material for degenerative arthritic diseases."*

Potential Cancer Preventer

The American Cancer Society, one of the leading private cancer advocacy and research organizations in the world, reports that an anti-cancer drug under development in June 2010 utilizes shark fin cartilage. ACS writes that shark fin cartilage is an anti-angiogenesis, preventing or slowing the growth of new blood vessels in the human body. Researchers found that proteins in the cartilage blocked "microvessel sprouting" and inhibited "capillary sprouting" in laboratory animals.* Does this mean Shark Cartilage Prevents Cancer, No, but may be promising down the road.


Two studies show how shark fin cartilage lends itself to the treatment of ulcerative colitis. A 1995 study performed in Italy showed that fin cartilage acts as an anti-inflammatory. Cartilage contains lipids. One of the active acids in this fatty tissue--eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA--attacks the inflamed body tissue. In ulcerative colitis, infectious bacteria irritate the colon, causing bloat, swelling, and pain in the lower intestine. The 1995 study showed that the shark fin assists in strengthening the intestine's mucosal barrier, preventing inflammation from taking root.*

A 1997 article in Bailliere's Clinical Gastroenterology showed that ELA provides an alternative to steroid therapy in the treatment of colitis, but the researchers stated that "It seems to have no role in the patient with inactive disease."*

Shark Cartilage Benefits:

Shark cartilage is a popular alternative medicine for those with cancer or those at risk. The notion is that sharks cannot get cancer; therefore, ingesting their cartilage will give humans greater immunity to it. While this may be true, shark cartilage has several other benefits that promote healthy overall well-being.


  • Shark cartilage helps to negate inflammations like asthma and joint pain. Constant use prohibits these influxes from repeating day after day. Those with respiratory problems greatly benefit from this.*

Skin Health

  • Regular usage of shark cartilage has several benefits when it comes to the skin. Symptoms such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema are diminished over time. Itches and rashes are also lessened when the cartilage is utilized.*

Immune Health

  • The immune system is boosted when shark cartilage is introduced into the diet. The body's natural defense system is aided by making sure it can battle the free radicals and toxins taken in via a number of outside sources. The body is then better able to locate and extract these harmful materials.*

Arthritis Relief

  • Sufferers of arthritis may find relief with regular intake of shark cartilage. It actually helps to rebuild lost cartilage and fluid between the joints to allow for easier manipulation of the limbs and extremities. Over time, joint pain is lessened and debilitating symptoms are avoided.*

Digestive Health

  • Shark cartilage helps to rebuild and protect the intestinal walls of the digestive system. Foods are eaten on a daily basis coupled with toxins and free radicals damage these walls. The shark cartilage helps to repair this damage and to ensure it does not continue.*

Cancer Help

  • Tumors are often treated with shark cartilage. It stops the creation of new blood vessels that feed the tumor. In turn, the tumor diminishes instead of spreading throughout the body. Amazingly, healthy tissues around the tumor are left unaffected instead of damaged by more evasive treatments.*

Eye Health

  • Shark cartilage has been known to help in the relief of glaucoma. The backed-up fluid pressure in the eye is a debilitating disease that can lead to blindness. Regular intake of shark cartilage can lessen the pressure and help preserve the eye.*

Due to the natural variation in shark cartilage, color, texture or taste may vary, but the same high quality is guaranteed.

Shark cartilage is not thought to be toxic, although it has been known to cause nausea, indigestion, fatigue, fever, and dizziness in some people. It may affect liver function, so ask your doctor before taking it if you have any kind of liver disease. It may also slow down the healing process for people recovering from surgery. People with a low white blood cell count should not take shark cartilage enemas, because there is a risk of life-threatening infection. Children should not take it because it could interfere with body growth and development*

Allergic reactions are possible. People with seafood allergies should avoid shark cartilage and chondroitin that is made from it. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should also avoid these supplements.

It is not known whether shark cartilage could cause any problems from interactions with other medicines. Relying on this type of treatment alone and avoiding or delaying conventional medical care for cancer, may have serious health consequences.
