When the word “shark” pops up in your mind, this probably also opens the mental doors to other illustrations that burst in your head. Pictures of sharks relentlessly tearing into flesh and bone in a whirlpool of blood and guts. Since our days as children, we have been taught sharks are killers and never ever go into ocean water if there is even a hint that sharks might be swimming around. Yes, sharks have received terrible reputations and movies like “JAWS” certainly do not help to improve a shark’s reputation. However, did you realize there is another side to sharks that actually brings news of good tidings rather than bad?
Ever Heard of Alkylglycerols?
Alkylglycerols are glyceryl ether lipids or phospholipids (phospholipids are fatty tissues that make up a cell membrane). The principal alkylglycerols are Chimyl, Batyl, and Selachyl alcohols. These alkylglycerols are also found in calves’ marrow and in human breast milk and are now thought to contribute to an infant’s immunity system when the infant’s immunity system it’s at its most vulnerable stage. Alkylglycerols are also found in blood cell manufacturing organs such as the bone marrow and spleen. They abundantly thrive in Shark liver oil.
Sharks bare no witness to Cancer
Ever see a sick shark? Well…. neither have I. As a matter of fact, most people have not and will not. Sharks are basically immune to cancer, infection and illnesses. Scientists have actually tried to purposely give sharks cancer. They inoculated sharks with the deadliest carcinogens known to man and the sharks didn’t even cringe. As a matter of fact, massive doses of carcinogens have been given to sharks with the same results—–cancer-free sharks. Sharks heal quickly, live long lifespans and are impervious to infections. Therefore, it was only a matter of time when someone would say, “Hey, do you think that just maybe whatever keeps sharks from getting sick or getting cancer might benefit humans?” Hence, the race to find the cancer fighting compounds from sharks was on. Well…The United States do not like cancer races. They usually do not like anything but their own medicine. I wish our western culture was more open-minded.
It was discovered that the reason why sharks have very large livers full of oil containing alkylglycerols is due to their interestingly designed ballast system. This is to say that the oil in the shark’s liver acts as a buoyancy liquid at different depths in the ocean. But more importantly it was discovered that the alkylglycerols contain extremely potent antioxidants, but not just any antioxidants. The popular Vitamin A, C, E, beta carotene, selenium, and zinc are great antioxidants, but they can only prowl around outside our cell membranes hunting for free radicals that cause cancer. They cannot go into our cell and kill the free radical. However, the antioxidants recovered from shark liver oil can enter through our cell membrane and hunt down free radicals. Free radicals that have entered through our cell membrane are able to do structural damage to our cell’s DNA. If this happens, we are more highly prone to develop cancer. Alkylglycerols (AKG’s) stop free radicals from damaging our cellular DNA.
AKG’s’s Reduce Radiation Sickness
A Stockholm nurse, in Sweden, was accidentally exposed to radium and received a high dose of radiation. The nurse experienced a severe reduction in white blood cells and began to come down with many different infections, colds and flu like respiratory problems. One of the doctors that worked with this nurse was also using AKG’s to help children with immune disorders. This doctor (Dr. Brohult) gave the nurse AKG supplementals and the nurse’s white blood cell count that plummeted returned to normal and remained stable thereafter. AKG’s started to be administered to reduce radiation injuries during radiation therapy. By using AKG’s, radiation sickness and injuries were reduced 50% in Sweden.
Sharks eat Your Tumors
Well… sharks really don’t put on cool shades, fin their way to your beach table and ask if you’d like them to eat your tumors so you can go on enjoying a tumor free life, but the AKG’s in shark liver oil do actually cause tumor cells to regress. Scientists in Sweden were giving women with cervical cancer AKG’s to reduce radiation injuries when they noted that the tumors in these women, due for their radiation treatment, regressed. This led to more studies on cancer tumors. They found that AKG’s inhibit activation of protein kinase C, which is essential for the runaway cell proliferation that is a hallmark of cancer. AKG’s also directly boost the immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells called neutrophils and by activating macrophages. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that plays a pivotal role in protecting against bacterial and fungal invaders. Thus, AKG’s may help boost the immune system and help fight infections, and help macrophages eat cancer tumors. Compliments of our debonair carnivorous shark.
AKG’s Not Just For Cancer
People with HIV/AIDS have found the benefits of AKG’s. There are doctors in Mexico that report how successful AKG’s are in treating HIV/AIDS victims. Some of these people have experienced their T-cell count go up in count due to AKG’s. A 69-year-old woman, who had been suffering from chronic lymphatic leukemia for 15 years finds relief. Her white blood-cell count had been controlled with oral chemotherapy and steroids, but every 2 months it would skyrocket from 25,000 to over 150,000. After the lady’s last episode, her doctor recommended that she take eight 500 mg capsules of shark-liver oil a day. After 6 months of this treatment, she has had no sudden increases in white blood-cell count that had so long plagued her. In fact, her white blood-cell count is now down to 9,000, which is normal. A woman, 50, with both diabetes and multiple sclerosis complained, “The MS really makes you tired.” Since taking shark-liver oil, she feels energetic. She says, “I am up and about doing things I haven’t done in years. I don’t feel like sleeping. I feel good!” (And her blood sugar count is down.) High Blood Pressure—An older man with high blood pressure began taking shark-liver oil capsules. He then had a blood-pressure test. Even though he skipped taking his blood-pressure medicine for 2-3 days before the test, he tested well within the normal range for the first time in 10 years. Arthritis—Another man had been suffering from arthritis so badly, he could not even make a fist. Then he began taking shark-liver oil. He noticed the difference in 3 days and is now able even to tie fishhooks for the first time in 20 years.
AKG’s are good for your skin and complexion. It is a fatty oil that also keeps your cholesterol LDL level low yet keeps your good HDL level high as it is rich in HDL’s. By Taking AKG’s, you bite the shark back for sure. Keep on biting back with shark liver oil.
Lots of Love
