Omega Fatty Acids
Sea Buckthorn is a natural source of Omega- 3, Omega-6, Omega-7, Omega-9
Omega-7 (Palmitoleic acid) is a very rare constituent found in Sea Buckthorn fruit. Omega-7 is a component of human skin. Topical application of seed and fruit oils on burned, scalded, wounded or radioactively damaged skin of both humans and animals has shown healing and anti-inflammatory effects.*
Phytosterols and Polyphenols
Phytosterols and Polyphenols are plant sterols that occur naturally in Seabuckthorn. Studies have shown that plant sterols mimic cholesterol in the small intestine and partly block cholesterol absorption. Therefore, regular consumption of foods containing plant sterols results in the lowering of LDL-cholesterol levels, while having no detrimental effect on HDL-cholesterol levels (often referred to as good cholesterol). This would benefit those who want to lower their blood cholesterol levels, i.e., especially those who have moderate to high blood cholesterol.
