Can the dose (1,200 mg) be quantified in the number of shrimp shells?

The shells of 1 kg of shrimp, when extracted and refined through our proprietary controlled enzymatic hydrolysis process, provide the active ingredient equaling approximately a 1-month dosage of PreCardix®. The shrimp proteins are refined through a proprietary enzymatic hydrolysis process to produce the ACE-inhibiting attributes associated with the peptides in the final product. Shells contain in-tact proteins and would not have the same effect on blood pressure.
