Twinlab Advanced Shark Cartilage capsules supply 500 mg of shark cartilage of which 275 mg is purified shark cartilage extract dried on dextrin. Unlike crude shark cartilage powder, the active ingredients in this product are highly concentrated and purified for maximum biological activity.

The shark cartilage concentrate is encapsulated at Twinlabs state of the art facility with stringent quality control assuring correct potencies and outstanding product freshness.
Shark cartilage is a popular dietary supplement. It is often marketed under the names Carticin, Cartilade™, BeneFin™, and Neovastat.
The benefits of this supplement have not been scientifically proven, nor has shark cartilage been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, its pervasive use is due to the common notion that sharks do not get cancer. This idea became popular with the best-selling book Sharks Don't Get Cancer by Dr. William Lane, published in 1992.
As a dietary supplement, take 2-5 capsules daily or as directed by a physician.
