What is Omega-7?
Omega 7 offers nutritional support for: * Dry eyes and mouth *Healthy skin *Intimate dryness during the menopause *Healthy immune system and inflammatory response
Omega-7 is a nutritional supplement prepared from berries of the sea buckthorn plant (Hippopae rhamnoides), a shrub originating in the Himalayas. Most of the research into the sea buckthorn plant has been carried out by Chinese and Russian scientists, and sea buckthorn is widely used in health products and cosmetics in these countries. More recently, the beneficial potential of the sea buckthorn plant has been increasingly recognized in Europe and North America. The oil extracted from sea buckthorn berries is a rich source of the essential polyunsaturated omega-7 fatty acids (PUFAs), palmitoleic acid and cis-vaccenic acid. Relatively few plant species are good sources of these essential PUFAs. In addition to the omega-7 PUFAs, sea buckthorn oil is a good source of the PUFAs alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3 type), linoleic acid (omega-6 type), and oleic acid (omega-9 type), as well as containing high levels of antioxidants (tocopherols, tocotrienols, carotenoids plant sterols and vitamin C).
What do omega-7 fatty acids do?
Polyunsaturated fatty acids are important components of mucous membranes, which form the protective lubricating lining of internal organs such as the gastro-intestinal tract, the respiratory and uro-genital tract as well as protecting the outer surface of the eyes. Mucous membranes may become dry as a result of ageing or environmental factors. Sea buckthorn oil may help to maintain healthy mucous membranes, as a source of nutrients required to maintain their structure and function.
How much omega-7 fatty acids should you take?
Pharma-Nord recommends 2 capsules of Omega-7 twice daily for the first two months, followed by 1 capsule twice daily thereafter.
Are there adverse effects from taking Omega-7?
No significant adverse effects have been reported for Omega-7.
