The highest concentration of alkylglycerols has been found in the liver of deep-water sharks, which is a reliable source for the natural supplement industry.
Alkylglycerol, or AKG for short are a fatty substance belonging to a class of fats called ether lipids, or ether-linked glycerols.
Our shark liver oil is processed from the livers of sharks found in the deep waters off the coast of Norway and the northern Atlantic Ocean. The shark liver accounts for up to one-third of the shark’s size and weight, and can yield up to 100 gallons of oil, containing a minimum of 20% Alkylglycerols within the oil. Contaminants, pesticides, heavy metals have been removed as well as unwanted fatty substances such as cholesterol, EPA/DHA and excessive amounts of Vitamin A & D and squalene. Each 500 mg gelcap is purified and standardized to provide 100 mg of alkylglycerols.
