Shark Cartilage & Reishi Mushrooms

Shark cartilage and reishi mushrooms have been used in traditional Chinese medicines for thousands of years. Both shark cartilage and reishi mushrooms are known for their immune-building effects.

Shark cartilage is an abundant source of mucopolysaccharrides and carbohydrates that stimulate the immune system promoting optimum health. Shark cartilage also contains vital amino acids, protein, calcium and phosphorous.

Shark cartilage's pain and anti-inflammatory properties have made it popular in the treatment of cancer, tumors, psoriasis and arthritis. (Shark cartilage should not be used after a heart attack, during pregnancy or if open lesions exist.)

Reishi mushrooms, also known as the "mushroom of mortality," have powerful adaptogens that strengthen the immune system and speed-up recovery time after an illness. Reishi mushrooms have been used for centuries to treat digestive disorders, high blood pressure and respiratory problems.

Reishi mushrooms help protect the body against free radical damage. They contain a natural anti-tumor agent called "tumor necronis factor". This agent is beneficial in the treatment of cancer. In addition, reishi mushrooms also support liver and nervous system functions.
