I am sure you have heard of the health benefits from Omega 3, 6 and 9. But have you heard of Omega 7 and its amazing internal and external health benefits?
Omega 7 derived from Sea Buckthorn helps to moisturize and soothe the body’s sensitive internal organs, in particular the mucous membranes that line the stomach/GI tract, upper respiratory tract and vagina, as well as its beneficial, external skin benefits and anti-aging properties. It has an extensive history of traditional use in Tibet and Mongolia for the body’s sensitive internal organs, particularly the mucous membranes that line the stomach/GI tract, upper respiratory tract and vagina. It is this botanical’s ability to help moisturize and sooth these sensitive internal areas that has made it a staple of traditional herbal systems.
Omega 7 from Sea Buckthorn is a skin care secret passed down for thousands of years from Ancient Greece. Legend says that the victorious Greeks were amazed that their enemy’s horses not only survived in a jungle that was abundant in a natural botanical source of Omega 7 oil from Sea Buckthorn, but that their horses were stronger and had shiny and radiant hair. Thus, the Latin name for Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), which means “Shiny Horse”. Of course, Sea Buckthorn became legendary for improving the coats of race horses in ancient Greece. Ancient Greek health texts attributed to Theophrastus and Dioskorid discussed the many health benefits of Sea Buckthorn. Its use was also praised in several Tibetan herbal texts; including “The RGyud Bzi” (The Four Books of Pharmacopoeia).
Palmitoleic acid is the key source of Omega 7's amazing skin support properties. Palmitoleic acid is a naturally occurring component of healthy skin and is a highly effective antioxidant providing strong anti-aging support due to its ability control free radicals. This key constituent of Omega 7 is also a strong emollient, which is a substance that soothes and moisturizes the skin and promotes the regeneration of tissues.
Omega 7 from Sea buckthorn also contains dozens of phyto-nutrients which nourish the skin, and support digestive and mucous membrane health. It also contains full spectrum Vitamin E containing both tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is well known for healing and repairing skin tissue. Phytosterols contained in Omega 7 provide unique wound healing benefits. The Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids in Sea Buckthorn support our body’s natural inflammatory response to promote healthy collagen, which improves skin tone and slows down aging of the skin. Omega 7 fatty acids are the predominant fatty acid in epithelial cell membranes. They are believed to play an important role in protecting the body’s cell membranes from oxidative, physical and emotional stress. Sea buckthorn oil can contain up to 50% omega 7 fatty acids.
