Squalene is a major component in various deep-sea shark liver oils, facilitating the delivery of oxygen around the body and allowing their survival in the harsh conditions at depths between 1800 and 6000 feet. Squalene is widely found in nature and sources include olives, palm oil and wheat germ oil. However, the largest concentration of Squalene and Mothernest Squalene is from deep sea Shark liver oil. Mothernest Squalene is taken from sharks that are caught as a byproduct of fishing nets. Squalene is polyunsaturated oil, 30 carbons long with 5 unsaturated double bonds. (By comparison, DHA fish oil is 22 carbons long with 4 unsaturated double bonds). These unique double bonds are what make squalene so effective in human metabolism. They enable the transport of oxygen as well as the absorption of toxins. It is a primary way in which sharks can live in very deep water with very little oxygen (squalene stores and transports oxygen).
