Sea Cucumber & Shark Cartilage – Powerful Anti-inflammatory Supplements
What do cancerous tumors and achy joints have in common?
They are both caused by inflammation in the body. This is why you will find sea cucumber and shark cartilage in the anti-inflammatory section of a health food store, right next to Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM. They are not big sellers because it is hard to find information out there, but, a lot of studies do exist and they are amazing.
Viewing a list of supplements that help arthritis pain and a list of supplements that help shrink cancerous tumors, it is very interesting that these two lists will mention some of the same supplements. These supplements, that are on both lists, come from animals and plants in the ocean that absorb minerals from algae. In fact, kelp and seaweed are on both lists because the enriching minerals found in these sea vegetables fight pain and inflammation in joints and also inhibit cancerous tumors from growing, as well as stop the growth of some cancerous tumors.
People in Japan have low rates of breast cancer to the point where it is almost nonexistent. The same goes for colon cancer in Japan. Studies show that breast cancer is linked to iodine deficiency. Japanese eat sea vegetables which are high in iodine. The sea cucumber and shark also eat from the iodine rich ocean and, thus, make an iodine rich supplement.
Let us not forget the most popular MSM. MSM, like sea cucumber and shark cartilage, is used to fight pain and inflammation in joints but also will inhibit cancerous tumors as well as stop the growth of some cancerous tumors.
And, where does MSM comes from? Shell fish.
