Biography & Contributions

Ian Morris Heilbron was a Scottish chemist, born on November 06, 1886 in Glasglow - died on September 14, 1959. Ian Morris was the first person conducted important research on vitamin A and vitamin D. Ian Morris also studied steroids and made important contribution towards penicillin antibiotic. The following with the studies on penicillin further he was able to develop a type of agrochemical called DDT [dichlorodiphenylirichloroethane]. He became a world authority on the structure of squalene.

Many awards and medals followed for great contributions. Ian Morris was Longstaff Medallist of the Chemical Society in the year of 1938, Davy Medallist of the Royal Society in the year of 1943 and Priestley Medallist of the American Chemistry Society in the year of 1945.

Facts about vitamins


Vitamins are an organic compounds normal cell function, growth, and development. Vitamins like vitamin A, C, D, E, K, B1, B3, B6, and B12, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid are play major role in our daily life. All kinds of vitamins are responsible and required for following reasons

To maintain healthy teeth, bones, soft tissue, mucus membranes, and skin; forming red blood cells, proper brain function; for wound healing; for iron absorption; for healthy bones; for production of hormones and cholesterol in the body.

The following are the major sources of vitamins

Egg yolk; dark colored fruits, vegetables; fish; fish liver oil; edible oils; seeds; nuts; cereals; milk; chocolates; pork; yeast; legumes; beets; mushrooms; banana etc.

Facts about penicillin


Penicillin is a naturally occurring antibiotic containing a fused thiazolidine and beta lactam ring, interfering with the growth or metabolism of many microorganisms of harmful nature. The substance was first observed by Alexander Fleming in 1929. Penicillin, being acid labile, is having restricted therapeutic use.

Penicillin is divided to natural derived penicillin and synthetic penicillin and these given both oral administration and intravenously. Penicillins are used in the treatment of throat infections, meningitis, syphilis, and various other infections. Around 1 in 15 people will have an allergic reaction after taking penicillin and a very small number of people will develop a severe allergic reaction.

Facts about squalene


Squalene is a poly-unsaturated hydrocarbon liquid (C30 H50) which occurs naturally, ubiquitously in human tissue in small amounts. The most abundant source of squalene is from the livers of deep sea sharks. Squalene is non-toxic, 100% natural and has no side effects. Its beneficial action is not limited to a particular organ. Squalene revitalizes weakened body cells and helps revive cell generation. Its chief attribute is the protection it affords cells from oxidation reactions.

Squalene helps clean, purify, and detoxify the blood from toxins, facilitating blood circulation. It cleanses the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys, causing better bowel movement and urination. Squalene is good cholesterol that is made up of high density lipid (HDL) which prevents the hardening of blood vessels and deposition of cholesterol plaques.

Squalene carries oxygen in the cellular level, causing further improvement in organ function through cellular metabolism, preventing the acidotic cell syndrome where cells become acidic, deteriorate and die due to lack of oxygen. Squalene's terpene gives a sterilizing effect, combating the growth of various germs such as coliform bacilli, dysentery bacilli, micrococcus pyocynanel, staphylococcus, hemolytic streptococcus, and candida albicans.
