Although alkylglycerols may be a difficult word to pronounce at first, it’s one that many are speaking about in terms of its array of health benefits. Alkylglycerols, otherwise known as AKG’s, is more widely known to be present in breast feeding mothers. This special ingredient in breast milk provides babies with a natural defense against infection and strengthens their immune system.
“Not many people realize that their bodies can continue to receive nourishment from alkylglycerols because this incredible lipid offers health benefits for all ages,” said a spokesperson from Nutrilys Del Mar, a marine supplement company based in San Diego. “In addition to these lipids, alkylglycerols also offers a ‘glycerol component’ which invigorates white blood cell production and builds up antibodies.”
The spokesperson pointed out that one way to naturally add alkylglycerols into a daily diet is by consuming a squalus acanthias fish liver oil soft gel supplement.
“One patented fish oil, considered a pharmaceutical grade is named Military Formula® and is regularly taken by elite armed forces, police departments, athletes and other persons who have very physical and laborious tasks to perform,” said the spokesperson. “But you don’t have to be in these lines of work to take Military Formula® because everyone can benefit from it, including seniors.”
Adding a supplement rich in alkylglycerols is great all year long, but may be especially helpful during the cold and flu season, as well.
Natural sources of AKG’s, including Military Formula®, have been studied and suggested to help with the following:
- Lessens fatigue
- Boosts and strengthens immunity
- Raises energy levels
- Offers a resistance to cold temperatures
“The medical history behind alkylglycerols is an interesting one which was championed by the Scandinavian wife and husband team of Dr. Astrid and Dr. Sven Brohult. These scientists dedicated much of their life’s work to how those with weak immune systems became stronger and were able to build a natural barrier against infection after taking regular doses of alkylglycerols,” the spokesperson said.
The suggested conclusion was that individuals deficient in alkylglycerols had more difficulty warding off bacteria, viruses and illnesses.
“A daily natural supplemental dose of alkylglycerols is clearly becoming one answer to a healthier and better quality of life,” the spokesperson said. “It’s what Mother Nature intended all along.”
