Miracle III Ingredients
Miracle III includes the following ingredients: Pycnogenol (Pine Bark Extract), Cat’s Claw (Uncaria Tormentosa) extract equivalent to activity of 400 mg powder, and pure dried shark cartilage.
Miracle III is a unique combination of shark cartilage, Pycnogenol (extract of the Pine tree) and the herb called Cat’s Claw. The formula contains no sugar, starch, salt or filters. Pycnogenol is an extract from the bark of French Maritime Pine tree. It has powerful antioxidant properties, as well as anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions. Also, evidence shows that Pycnogenol may bind collagen and elastin, and may aid in the dilution of blood vessels to promote circulation and blood flow.
Shark cartilage is composed of proteins, calcium, collagen and sulfur. Although largely promoted as a cancer treatment, the FDA does not support these claims and listed it as a dietary supplement. Other uses include immune function boosting (due to content of proteins and calcium), repairing connective tissue and joints, reducing inflammation and relieving pain associated with osteoarthritis. It is used for repairing the digestive system and to treat glaucoma. Side effects include bad taste in the mouth, nausea, vomiting, constipation, stomach upset, dizziness, high calcium levels and fatigue.
Cat’s Claw is a herb believed to stimulate the immune system, fight viruses and even cancer. It is used to treat bone disease (osteoarthritis, etc), viral infections and various digestive disorders. It is considered potentially safe, however concern exist regarding its safety during pregnancy.
