Squalene oil is a product that has been gaining in popularity quite a bit over the last few years. There are a number of uses that we have for squalene oil for various health reasons.
Squalene is in part derived from a deep sea shark that lives in waters that are as deep as one thousand meters. It is an oil that is taken from the liver of the shark, and has many benefits when it is used appropriately by humans. Squalene is also derived from a variety of plant sources.
Some of the benefits of squalene oil include the following:
Squalene oil is often used in cosmetics. It is very healthy for the human skin, as noted in the video towards the bottom of this page, and contains several different anti-oxidants that are great for our system. The oil is not only used for looks, but is also used to help a number of skin conditions. Studies have shown that using squalene oil on a number of skin conditions has proven to be beneficial, and may even help the user recover from some skin conditions.
It was also found to help mice from developing skin cancer when it was applied to skin that had already been detected as having cancer cells present. Squalene is currently being researched heavily by a number of different universities so we can determine exactly how useful it will be to us in the long term.
Several studies have shown that squalene oil has been proven to help stop the spread of cancer, as well as the onset, in mice. A study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, showed that squalene in olive oil may be responsible for offsetting DNA synthesis sequence that causes cancer cells to grow in the first place. Places of the world that often ingest squalene oil have been shown to have lower rates of cancer as well.
Cod Liver Oil
Cod liver oil is a nutritional supplement derived from liver of cod fish. It has high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, and very high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D. It is widely taken to ease the symptoms of arthritis and for other health benefits. It was once commonly given to children, because the high levels of vitamin D in cod liver oil have been shown to prevent rickets.
Depending on the quality of the oil, the flavor and aroma range from a mild sardine-like flavor, to an intense odor of fish and oil. High quality cod liver oil is a pale-yellow, thin, oily liquid, having a slightly fishy and bland taste. Manufacturers sometimes add flavorings, such as citrus or mint essence, to cod liver oil to make it more palatable. While taking the capsules as well as the liquid form, one may experience a very rancid fishy aftertaste during belching.
Omega 3 Fish Oil
Treat rheumatoid arthritis: joint stiffness and swelling caused by this painful condition may lessen because of the inflammation-fighting actions of omega-3s. Control diabetes: nerve problems and heart disease are complications of this chronic condition. Fish oils may help by preventing nerve damage and possibly raising hdl ("good") cholesterol. Ease symptoms of lupus, psoriasis and eczema: in people with lupus, omega-3s appear to control inflammation in the joints, skin, kidneys, and other body tissues. Minimize crohn's disease symptoms: when taken long term for preventive purposes, the essential fatty acids in fish oils will keep inflammation in the digestive tract under control. Delay the onset of raynaud's disease symptoms: omega-3s inhibit inflammation within vessels, making fish oils potentially useful in stalling the numbness, tingling, and other symptoms resulting from exposure to cold air.

Chitosan is a linear polysaccharide composed of randomly distributed β-(1-4)-linked D-glucosamine (deacetylated unit) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (acetylated unit). It is made by treating shrimp and other crustacean shells with the alkali sodium hydroxide.Chitosan has a number of commercial and possible biomedical uses. It can be used in agriculture as a seed treatment and biopesticide, helping plants to fight off fungal infections. In winemaking it can be used as a fining agent, also helping to prevent spoilage.
In industry, it can be used in a self-healing polyurethane paint coating. In medicine, it may be useful in bandages to reduce bleeding and as an antibacterial agent; it can also be used to help deliver drugs through the skin.More controversially, chitosan has been asserted to have use in limiting fat absorption, which would make it useful for dieting, but there is evidence against this.Other uses of chitosan that have been researched include use as a soluble dietary fiber.
