In brief: Perhaps?

But I am not aware of any indication or benefit.
With the worlds shark population down 90%, it wouldn't be high on my list of complementary or alternative therapies and only if i were sure it would be saving my life of markedly improving my daily life or comfort. Reconsider!

In brief: Probably Not

There is a health risk in ingesting shark fins.
It is a predator fish with of high levels of bmaa (neurotoxin), arsenic & methylmercury. You ingest the toxins that were in the shark's body. Not good!
