What is Squalamine?

Squalamine is an essential ingredient which may be derived from various sources in nature. One known source of squalamine is predominantly found in the liver tissue (not the "liver oil") of the deep water shark. The "liver oil" of the shark contains only trace amounts of the compound squalamine; however, it also contains many other exotic compounds.

Squalamine is not a protein. Instead, it is the first known example of a class of compounds called aminosterols, each being a steroid chemically linked to an amino acid. Proteins are easily destroyed by digestive enzymes in the stomach; however, squalamine remains unscathed through the digestive tract.

Benefits of Squalamine

Angiogenesis is a function in the body in which unhealthy cells develop their own blood vessel structure in order to nourish and support themselves. The immune system, in response, uses certain compounds in the body to naturally counter angiogenesis. This normal body function is called anti-angiogenesis.

If the immune system is successful in carrying out this designed natural function, unhealthy cells cannot survive. However, if the body is deficient in these vital compounds, anti-angiogenesis cannot occur. Therefore, it is important to supplement the body with natural anti-angiogenesis factors. Squalamine is an aminosterol compound which the body readily uses to carry out its normal anti-angiogenesis function.

The Squalamax™ formulation only uses Dogfish Sharks that were caught as a by-product of deep-sea fishing which would have otherwise gone to waste.
