*Due to the sensitive nature surrounding the use of shark cartilage, we will be changing our formula in 2016. While Peruvian culture utilizes all parts of shark in cuisine and wellness products, and the Peruvian government actively regulates against over fishing of sharks, as a company we have chosen to discontinue its use. We continue to be devoted to all other plants and marine extract supported within a traditional medical system.
