Sea Buckthorn is so completely brimming with goodness that it's fast becoming one of the world's foremost sources of Omega 7 fatty acids. Good for the heart, skin and immune system, this is a natural healer that you won't want to miss out on.
A few years ago, all the emphasis was on finding more prolific sources of Omega 3 fatty acid. Having been only recently researched for their ability to heal the heart, it was a surprise to some to learn that Omega acids have actually been used for years by traditional Chinese medicine to give younger looking skin and a healthier heart.
The race to discover more about Omega acids began and soon enough a superior version of Omega 3 was unearthed - Omega 7. It might sound strange to hear that your body actually needs fatty acids but the truth is they are integral to heart health.
It was through this research that this particularly unlikely source cropped up - the Sea Buckthorn. A deciduous shrub that grows in harsh, dry sandy regions - its fruit, a rotund berry, has been used for years to treat a variety of conditions.
The Chinese have used the cold climate shrub to treat ailments such as heart problems while in more recent times, its juice has been applied topically to heal wounds, eczema, lesions and scars. Swanson have activated all the healing agents of the plant and deliver them here to you in their most potent form yet.
The source of Omega 7 in the Sea Buckthorn Oil is an acid known as Palmitoleic Acid and what recent research has discovered is that it (along with the oil's other ingredients) can offer you help in dealing with…
But Palmitoleic Acid isn't the only goodness stored in Swanson EFA's Omega 7 oil from sea Buckthorn oil. It is also packed full of...
Even Genghis Khan himself acknowledged the goodness of the Sea Buckthorn - his horses would graze on the leaves of the shrub and the resultant gleam and shimmer of their coats led to the common name of the plant - Hippophae Rhamnoides - which literally translates as 'making horses bright'.
Palmitoleic Acid can help block harmful UV rays from the skin, reduce the severity of the ageing process and aid in the promotion of healthier hair.
