Sea Buckthorn Oil capsules and supplements are a rich source of omega 7 essential fats. One special feature of sea buckthorn is that the berry contains oil both in the seed and in the soft parts.
Sea Buckthorn Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, linoleic and alpha-linoleic acids, and the pulp is the richest source of palmitoleic acid, rarely found in the plant kingdom.
Scientists believe our most delicate body tissues, especially the skin and the mucus membranes that line the digestive and urogenital tracts, have the greatest affinity for the rare essential fatty acid, Omega 7 fatty acids. Environmental stressors (such as sunlight and pollution), poor diets, and even normal ageing can challenge those sensitive membranes, and Omega 7 fatty acids are now being hailed as important agents to nourish, protect, replenish, moisturize, and restore them.
Numerous studies indicate that Sea Buckthorn Oil supplements help to alleviate dry eyes, dry mouth, vaginal dryness and all types of dry skin conditions including alleviating eczema, dermatitis and general dry skin on the face and body.
