Shark cartilage has been used for thousands of years in the orient as a functional food. Shark cartilage is a structural material for the joints, since shark cartilage contains copious amounts of calcium (16-24%), phosphorus (8%) and chondroitin. Dr. Nieper recommended shark cartilage as a daily dietary supplement to provide nutritional support to the connective tissue and to help reduce tissue inflammation. Many doctors also recommend use of shark cartilage because it contains mucopolysaccharides, which are dietary nutrients useful for bolstering the immune system. Shark cartilage contains a wide range of nutrients that are necessary to promote joint and skeletal repair and reduce inflammation in body tissues
Shark cartilage has also been used to reduce pain, and decrease general wear and tear on joints. Shark Cartilage supplementation is also widely used in people suffering from many inflammatory and degenerative diseases as an adjunct in reduction in pain and swelling and to increase the range of limb motion.
Shark Cartilage is one of Dr. Hans Nieper’s formulas that supports the following systems:
1. Immune System
