You may be curious as to why Doctor Oz and other nutritional gurus are suddenly hailing sea buckthorn as a miracle. It’s a wonder Americans ever found it: this berry grows on deciduous trees, often in difficult climates. Sea buckthorn is a staple of Traditional Chinese medicine as well as Tibetan medicine. It has been used treat what are, on the surface, appears to be a curiously vast array of symptoms. The reason sea buckthorn is perceived as a cure-all is probably due to its difficulty in harvesting and its difficulty in growing in normal climates. Seaside mountains are often the best home for sea buckthorn. The trees are rough and difficult to harvest. However, the benefits are stellar, even for symptoms like vaginal dryness.
Vaginal Dryness is Often a Symptom
Typically, vaginal dryness is indicative of moisture loss and dehydration in other areas of the body as well, including mucous membranes. Vaginal dryness may be caused by a chemical imbalance, especially in a key essential fatty acid which we’ll discuss below. Since sea buckthorn has been used in the past for treating gum disease, as well as producing moist and supple skin, it follows that this super berry, in theory, may be used as a treatment for vaginal dryness.
Another Rare Nutritional Component
Your word for the day is Omega 7. Sea buckthorn is unusually rich in this EFA, also called palmitoleic acid. It is extremely rare to find such high concentrations of palmitoleic acid in any food (macadamia nuts and macadamia oil are the only commonly available foods that are nutritionally comparable, but those nuts certainly do not come with the well-rounded benefits of sea buckthorn). This component naturally triggers keeping mucous membranes from dehydration, and may greatly reduce vaginal dryness symptoms as well. Read more about sea buckthorn and its omega-7 content.
Additional Benefits of Palmitoleic Oil
Studies are beginning to suggest that palmitoleic oil may have components that regulate how fat oxidizes in the body. That’s right: palmitoleic oil, as well as many of the other essential fatty acids found in sea buckthorn, may help your body control its weight. Those that consume sea buckthorn may also enjoy overall improved skin health, thanks to its moisture properties and high omega content. Sea buckthorn, over the centuries, has been included in Asian skin care products. Learn more about Dr. Oz recommending sea buckthorn for weight loss.
Other Nutritional Benefits of Sea Buckthorn
Sea buckthorn comes with a host of other nutritional benefits. It is extremely rare to find a berry with this unique level of nutritional content. This nutritional favorite is loaded with Vitamins A, C and D in unusual quantities. The high beta carotene content of sea buckthorn is reflected in its orange color in the same manner that carrots and sweet potatoes contain an orange hue. Sea buckthorn contains a number of flavanoids and other healthy EFA’s that may prevent certain forms of cancer. All in all, sea buckthorn has come to international attention due to its extremely nutrient-rich qualities.
