The History of Shark Liver Oil
According to Drugs.com, In 1916, squalene was isolated from Shark Liver Oil.
Scandinavian fisherman used squalene to treat skin conditions and respiratory conditions, they even used it to combat certain types of cancers.
Historically, Shark Liver Oil has been used in the treatment of "glandular diseases" often unnamed since doctors had limited knowledge of the human gland system in the early 1900's. Now, we know that one of these glandular diseases is named lymphadenopathy. Alkylglycerols have been researched for use in a number of health areas, one area that is particularly promising is using the SLO as an immune system stimulant.
