From the depths of the sea surfaces strength for the immune system.
Alkylglycerols, or AKGs, are a family of compounds that are integral in stimulating the body’s immune system. They are found in significant amounts in human breast milk, the liver, spleen and bone marrow, all of which are agents of the immune system. Alkylglycerols are active substances that give breast fed babies crucial protection against infection until their own immune systems are fully developed. As a natural supplement Alkylglycerols can be found in shark liver oil.
Over 70 Years of Research
Scientists have been studying sharks and their relationship to the immune system for over 70 years. Some sharks live to be over 100 years old, and virtually all species of sharks are known to have an extraordinary resistance to infections and to the growth of tumors. In 25 years of marine biology research alone, the Smithsonian Institution found only one malignant tumor in over 25,000 individual sharks that they had studied.
For some time it was thought that the shark’s immunity was related to its cartilage. In the last decade however, scientists have proven that it is the oil from the shark’s liver that contains Alkylglycerols, which is a primary source of its incredible immunity, not the cartilage. And, it was discovered that liver oil from certain deep water sharks, in particular the Greenland shark, is exceptionally rich in Alkylglycerols.
The Greenland Shark, also known as the Sleeper Shark, swims in the Arctic waters of the northern Atlantic Ocean at depths of three to four thousand feet. The liver of the Greenland Shark accounts for up to one-third of the shark’s size and weight, and can yield up to 100 gallons of oil, containing over 30%+ Alkylglycerols within the oil.
The shark liver oil in Alkyrol comes from the Greenland Shark, and contains natural, standardized and carefully controlled shark liver oil without unwanted fats or impurities. The Alkylglycerols have been isolated by a unique process which removes all contaminants and undesirables, as well as Vitamins A and D. (Vitamins A and D are fat soluble vitamins. When taken in excessive amounts, they can be toxic to the body.)
Backed by extensive research, impressive results and continued use by leading hospitals, research centers and doctors worldwide, Alkyrol surpasses all other shark liver oil preparations.
