Support your connective tissue health‚ when you use Shark Cartilage Capsules from NOW® Foods. This formula could offer natural chondroitin and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)‚ extracted from the freeze dried backbone of sharks. It may have anti-inflammatory properties that could alleviate related conditions of the bone joints.
This dietary supplement from NOW® Foods could offer nutrients that may enhance immune response and could inhibit inflammation. Chondroitin in shark cartilage could contribute to the breakdown of joint cartilage in human beings‚ which often deteriorates from regular wear and tear as we age. It is likely effective in hindering the vascularization of cartilage and may reduce joint pain and swelling.
This dietary supplement could offer mucopolysaccharides (GAGs)‚ which are a vital component in cartilage‚ the extracellular matrix‚ and synovial fluid. GAGs could be helpful as a shock absorber and safeguard your joints from fracture.
Start taking Shark Cartilage Capsules from NOW® Foods and you could perk up your joint health.

Overall Rating for Shark Cartilage 750 mg - 300 Capsules
from Houston, TX
Why consume shark cartilage?
Sometimes my skeletal system seems to be a weak link for me, so I'm always looking for nutritional support strategies. I'm not addressing a definite specific issue right now, but feel stronger with improved joint mobility since taking Shark Cartilage by NOW. I have been taking 2 capsules 3x daily on most days for about a month. Now I take it less often as a maintenance dose. Here is the research that led me to try it: Shark cartilage has been proven very helpful for both pets and people. On Patrick Timpone's show a caller excitedly reported that after his 17 year old cat jumped off the couch and then floundered and would hardly move for three days, recovery occurred within 24 hours after giving the cat some shark cartilage supplement. This shark cartilage formula for dogs and cats provides dosage recommendations, and this page references a study that showed 80% of arthritic dogs improved when treated with 750 mg of shark cartilage per 5 kg of body weight for 3 weeks.This article about Cartilade for dogs and cats with arthritis explains how it works: Studies have shown that shark cartilage contains proteins, mucopolysaccharides (which contribute to the formation of joint fluids), calcium, and other ingredients that inhibit growth of new blood vessels in the joints (which leads to calcification) and promote healing of already damaged joint tissues. In the laboratory, shark cartilage has been shown to contain chemicals that inhibit angiogenesis (blood vessel formation). Because arthritis is an inflammatory condition, and inflammation requires blood vessels, it has been suggested that shark cartilage can benefit arthritic pets by inhibiting the formation of new blood vessels. And in fact, research has shown this to be the case. In studies of both people and dogs, significant improvement is seen in patients suffering from arthritis. Arthritic pets and people taking shark cartilage supplements often experience increased mobility and decreased pain. Note that children, pregnant women, or women attempting to conceive should not use anti-angiogenic therapies.
Inexpensive large size will last long enough to get benefits if this is what your body needs.
The form of calcium is not listed (elemental forms are not really absorbed, but plant-based ionic forms are so I'm not sure about this ingredient). I would prefer that a bulk powder product form were available.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
