Squalamine is an essential
ingredient which is contained in Shark Liver Oil. However,
Shark Liver Oil contains many other exotic compounds
in addition to squalamine. Squalamax only contains a
highly concentrated form of squalamine from deep water
sharks and none of the other ingredients. By taking
Squalamax, significantly more squalamine is ingested
than by taking Shark Liver Oil capsules alone.
Squalamax can be taken by itself, however,
by taking it along with Shark Liver Oil the effects
of both products will be dramatically enhanced.
Squalamine is not a protein. Instead,
it is the first known example of a class of compounds
called aminosterols, each 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.
