Cellect has not been studied in clinical trials and there is no evidence that it can be used to prevent or treat any diseases in humans. We do not support using this product as a cancer treatment.
Cellect is a line of dietary supplements that include gelatin, cod liver oil, and different blends that consist of vitamin E, minerals, shark cartilage and milk thistle. It is marketed as a vitamin program purported to maintain the body's normal functions, to help boost the immune system, and to treat cancer by alleviating the body's chemical imbalances. Although shark cartilage was examined for its antitumor and antiangiogenic activities in vitro and in animal models, clinical trials show that it is not effective in humans.
Cellect should not be confused with a device that is used to separate cells.
