Healthy Immune Function… The immune system is your body’s first line of defense. Support it with VitaMune®, a remarkable new product from Vitamark that combines the patented Immuno-Peptide™ found in the natural immune structure of sharks with 100% pure shark cartilage to provide a dietary supplement that will help unlock your own natural defense system.* VitaMune® offers a natural approach to immune system support of T-cell and macrophage activity*—and it contains no chemicals or additives.

Today’s Environment Calls for a Strong Defense—Immune System Defense, that is!

VitaMuneDon’t Be Caught With Your Guard Down!

Let VitaMune® be the beginning of your protection. VitaMune® is a special shark cartilage product that contains Immuno-Peptide™, a patented/patent pending (patented in Australia/patent pending in US and Europe) peptide that is found interlocked within the complex matrix hidden in the natural immune structure of the shark. VitaMune’s shark cartilage is harvested from deep water sharks that have been harvested for food purposes. Combine this potent form of cartilage which is rich in naturally occurring nutritional compounds with increased amounts of the Immuno-Peptide™, and you have the ultimate protection.

The Immuno-Peptide™ is a precise sequence of amino acids that help nutritionally support the body’s defenses.* This potent compound was identified in 1994 and later isolated as the rare sequence of amino acids within the shark’s serum with the ability to potentiate the immune system.*

VitaMune’s shark cartilage is processed using patented technology to create proprietary measures to insure proper “sizing” for optimum absorbency; to create the accurate temperatures to optimize effectiveness; to create the optimum blending techniques to insure proper, homogenous blending of the active components; and to create extremely controlled conditions to achieve the freshest and purest form of cartilage.

VitaMune’s special blend of cartilage contains optimum levels of naturally occurring Mucopolysaccharides (these polysaccharides form the gelatinous material that seems to glue the cells together and support the joints—it is sometimes called “the glue of life“); glucosaminoglycans (like Chondroitin at 440 mg, Hyaluronic Acid at 200 mcg and glucosamine sulfate and other glucosaminoglycans at 880 mg); Type II Collagen; Calcium; Protein, Zinc and others. These nutritional components support healthy joints and cell growth.*

This blend of Immuno-Peptide™ and 100% pure shark cartilage provides for compatible absorbency that will help unlock your own natural defense system.*

When taken as a dietary supplement at the serving size of 4 capsules, you’ll receive 2000 mg of this specially processed cartilage, which includes 140 mcg of the powerful Immuno-Peptide™—that’s 500 mg of power per capsule!

Let your body’s first line of defense direct the complex biochemical response that maintains health. With its army of defense cells activated, the natural ability of your own body to protect itself is optimized.*

  • Unlock your own natural defense system.*
  • A natural approach to Immune System support of T-cell and macrophage activity*
  • A smart choice for your daily health maintenance program
  • Scientifically processed under closely guarded proprietary standards to provide a safe, standardized formula for maximum benefit and absorbency
  • Contains no chemicals or additives
VitaMune®—possibly one of the most exciting health discoveries in decades.*
