Sea Buckthorn Omega-7

ft 0613a2d3418fd01506acf5a6e4ea94551 300x240 Sea Buckthorn Omega 7The more scientists study the Sea Buckthorn plant, the more amazed they become at the many benefits it provides to the body. One of these benefits is an unusual concentration of the essential omega-7 fatty acid.   Sea buckthorn is the best source of Omega-7 and the richest plant source in the world for the rare EFA.  Omega-7 helps the body maintain itself in a variety of ways, including counteracting weight gain. The discovery of this fact has obviously produced a great amount of interest among medical researchers, and initial surprising research has many predicting that the EFA could be a powerful tool in the weight loss battle.

What is Omega-7?

sea buckthorn field1 300x225 Sea Buckthorn Omega 7The essential “omega” fatty acids are an important source of fuel and building blocks for many of the body’s components. Sea Buckthorn contains many of the omega fatty acids, but the one that sets it apart from other plants is omega-7. It is rarer than most of the others, and is also known by the name palmitoleic acid. Fish oil has long been used as a good source for it, and it is also supplied by some animal oils and vegetable oils. It hardly ever appears in plant products, with the exceptions of macadamia oil and Sea Buckthorn. The concentration of omega-7 in Sea Buckthorn is up to 40 percent, over twice that of macadamia oil. This makes Sea Buckthorn a plenteous, efficient source of this powerful EFA without the need to consume fatty meats or take supplemental fish oil capsules.

Benefits

Soft Skin1 300x198 Sea Buckthorn Omega 7Eastern medicinal systems have long relied on Sea Buckthorn Omega 7 to relieve ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems. This is because the large amounts of omega-7 build up the inner linings of the stomach and intestines, protecting them from damage. For people who suffer from chronic pain caused by acidic foods or stress-created ulcers, this natural supplement could replace a range of medicines that treat the symptoms, not the root problems. Learn more about sea buckthorn’s support for the digestive system here.

Omega-7 is also behind the plant’s famous ability to rejuvenate the skin and promote healthy healing after damage. It is a powerful source of nourishment for the skin’s collagen, strengthening existing skin and repairing injuries. Read about sea buckthorn and beautiful skin here.

As of yet, the connection between Sea Buckthorn and weight gain prevention is not fully understood. The answer seems to lie with the plant’s high omega-7 concentration, which is unique among edible plants. Preliminary research indicates that the EFA may oxidize fat that is not needed for the body’s functions, preventing it from being stored as unwelcome weight gain. As scientists work to learn just how this process works, experts in the healthy living field are watching closely and have already begun to spread the word about this and the other many benefits that Sea Buckthorn provides. Read about Dr. Oz’s sea buckthorn recommendation for weight management.

    To whom it may concern:

    Is it by any chance possible that anyone can advise me where I can find ‘Sea Buckthorn Omega 7′. I live in South Africa, the province of ‘KwaZulu Natal’, in the city of ‘Durban’. I have searched high & low, but it doesn’t seem that anybody stocks it.

    Your assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Karin.

      Hi Karin,

      Unfortunately we don’t know where it’s located outside of the United States. You can try an online store here in the states that ships internationally. On the right side of our page is a link to one – it’s a sponsor ad that sells online. Maybe they can help you find Sea Buckthorn Omega 7. Good luck!

        Yep, you can find sea buckthorn at many health food stores, online retailers, and others. We have a sponsored ad on the right hand side of our website that goes to the sea buckthorn page of Tao Of Herbs.com. They also sell nationwide and internationally I believe.

  2. I live in Thailand, does anybody know where I can obtain Omega 7 anywhere in this country says:

    I believe that Sea Buckthorn has amazing qualities, and I believe historically it was used with great success in the East ( but not the West). However, I cannot help but wonder how something so good should have lost it’s popularity for so many years.Any help here will be gratefully appreciated, — Cheers, Brian Maddox, Pattaya, Thailand.

    • admin says:

      We can’t say how it lost its popularity but fortunately it has gained popularity here in the United States! We couldn’t be more grateful. Truthfully, we’re under the impression that it IS popular in eastern Asia and is just recently popular in the United States and apparently Europe is gaining momentum.

    Can anyone tell me if Sea Buckthorn is safe to take alongside my high blood pressure tablets?

    Thanks

      Hi Caroline,

      Everyone is so different and there are so many types of medications out there. Sea buckthorn is a natural product and has been used for centuries. Even so, you should always consult with your physician before starting to take any supplement, especially if you are concerned about conflicts in medications. Better to be safe than sorry. Hope that helps.

      Thanks!

    I am on my second box of 150 capsules. Now taking 2 in the morning. This was recommended to me by my health store.
    How long before you see the benifits. I do have a good diet & I live a healthy life.
    Sometimes, I feel tired in the afternoons.
    Thank you,
    Evelyn.

      Hello Evelyn,

      If you are already living a healthy lifestyle and are just taking it for overall health, it may take a little longer to see results. It’s likely the results you will notice the most will be the effects on hair, nails and skin. As you probably already know, sea buckthorn has so many benefits and it really just depends on why you are taking it.

      If you feel tired in the afternoon, you may want to start taking your capsules around that time because all of the vitamins and minerals in the sea buckthorn oil may help give you a boost.

      Everyone is different and people who are already healthy may need more time to see results. However, a good rule of thumb would be about a month, give or take.

      Thanks!
