Squalene is an unsaturated lipid molecule that serves as a structural component of cell membranes. Squalene is found in significant amounts in shark oil, olive oil and the human body. Squalene represents about 70% of the oil in the shark’s liver and 2% of olive oil. Squalene is found in elevated levels in the skin composing up to 11% of skin lipids. Squalene is a critically important cell membrane compound in maintaining moisture in the cells and along with 2-AEP it can reduce the effects of aging in the skin. Squalene combined with buffered vitamin C improves oxygen utilization in the cells.
Squalene is a critically important cell membrane free radical neutralizing compound that also helps maintain the moisture of the cells. Dr. Nieper used a combination cocktail of squalene, calcium 2-AEP, vitamins C, E and B1 for skin health. Squalene has important roles in antioxidant protection, wound healing, immune system regulation and the production of steroid hormones.
Squalene (Shark Liver oil) is one of Dr. Hans Nieper’s formulas that supports the following systems:
1. Cardiovascular System
2. Epthelial (skin) System
3. Hormonal System
4. Immune System
5. Nervous System
