What the other guys don’t want you to know…. who has the best sea buckthorn?
More and more companies are jumping on the sea buckthorn oil boat every day, claiming they’re the best of the best. But how do we know which sea buckthorn varieties are hype and which are true?
I’m not here to tell you who’s wrong and who’s right, but I am going to give you a few facts on the how and why we believe we truly excel in the world of organic sea buckthorn (sea berry)
Sea buckthorn is our specialty, it’s what we do…
Our entire business relies on the quality and the results this little orange berry can bring.
So with all the new and “improved” sea buckthorn varieties surfacing, it seems daily, how do you know which is the right pick?
Hopefully, we’ll answer a lot of your questions right here and now. If not, be sure to leave them in the comments section.
But first, what is sea buckthorn?
In one sentence, it’s whole food beauty nutrition, with some pretty amazing health benefits, too.
Sea buckthorn, also known as sea berry, is a tiny pea sized fruit that grows in various areas across Europe, Asia, and Canada.
Rich in over 190 naturally occurring nutrients, omegas 3, 9, and the elusive skin repairing, omega 7. Sea buckthorn has been used for over 1,300 years for its various beauty and health benefits.
Not all sea buckthorn is created equal….. Don’t take our word for it, here’s a quick testimonial from a SIBU customer:
So you’re probably asking, what’s the Sibu difference?
Out of the many varieties of sea buckthorn that grow across the globe, there’s one specific type which has been tested and proven to have the highest nutritional levels and highest omega 7 content over any other variety.
It’s called turkistanica….. The best sea buckthorn in the world.
But again, don’t take our word for it. Take a gander at these third-party analyses measuring the percentage levels of omega 7.
This unique type of sea buckthorn (turkestanica) grows high in the Himalayan Mountain tops where the environment is harsh, the soil is tough and the air is thin.
These extremes in environment help create some of the best sea buckthorn in the world.
We are the only company that harvests from our own wild-growing sea buckthorn fields. Untouched by any type of harmful man-made process, we let Mother Nature do all the work.
And I’m sure she does it better than we could ever replicate!
Where’s proof? Go and buy any other brand of sea buckthorn liquid supplement, pour yourself a glass and you’ll see a dull, dead, tainted rusty brown color fill your cup.
….Now, try SIBU Omega 7 Pure (100% pure sea buckthorn, NOTHING else added) and you’ll be met with a beautiful, vibrant, bright orange that screams LIFE!
What sets Sibu apart from the other guys:
Hand harvested berries– only the ripe berries that are ready to be consumed ever make it into our finished product so you get perfectly crafted, wholefood nutrition.
Harvested in the early morning hours- the sun eats away and depletes nutrients in fruits as the day progresses. The early morning hours are when our sea buckthorn berries are at their best and most potent.
Same day processing– the moment you pick any type of fruit, you’ve taken it from its life force, it begins to die, it begins to lose nutrients. Processing our berries the same day they are harvested allows them to carry on more of the good stuff, ready for you to benefit from.
…Okay, maybe not everything, but it does help in a variety of different ways.
We live in a world where so many foods we eat are causing sickness and disease instead of preventing it.
The problem isn’t that healthy foods aren’t out there, it’s finding the right ones that’s tough.
Many of the foods we find in our local supermarket have been so heavily processed that our body receives very little, if any, nutritional benefit.
Imagine your car running low on fuel, low on oil, low on coolant, low on transmission fluid, low on everything your car needs to run properly.
Imagine your car operating like this every day. Eventually, there’s going to be some damage. Our bodies work in similar ways…
Your Body Can Only Work With What You Give It!
If we’re not feeding our body what it needs to run at optimal levels, healthy functions begin to break down. And unless you’ve already taken action to improve your health and the foods you eat, this is how all of our bodies are operating day in and day out.
If you are already eating healthy and making positive changes to your diet, then BIG KUDOS to you! You’re well on the road to reaching your health goal.
But even with healthy diets and proper foods, we find that our bodies are still lacking many necessary nutrients to live vibrant, healthy lives.
This is why wholefoods play a vital role in our efforts to increase our overall health.
What about multi-vitamin supplements?
I’d say it’s better than taking nothing at all but they do have a major disadvantage. Most vitamin supplements are manmade and combined with other so-called “healthy” ingredients to create a once-a-day multi-vitamin.
The problem with these vitamins is that because they’re manmade, they’re foreign to our body.
Our body doesn’t know how to properly use the nutrients to their highest potential. Nutrients that don’t get used don’t produce any positive results.
Lost nutrients = lost money, and more importantly, NO significant health improvements.
While SIBU is geared toward helping problematic skin, we’re consistently getting positive feedback from women all over the world who have discovered a secret benefit by taking SIBU Omega 7 Support capsules.
Michelle struggled with vaginal dryness…
Here’s her story and how SIBU Omega-7 Supplements worked for her (and her boyfriend)
We’ll let Michelle tell you all about it…
“I can’t rave enough about this product! One day while in my local nutrition shop, a sales woman saw me looking at the omega oils and asked me if had tried the omega-7 sea buckthorn oil… I hadn’t. I’m always all about the hair and skin products – but she said something else that really piqued my interest.
She mentioned it helps with vaginal dryness. As a young woman, you wouldn’t think I’d have any issues with that, but sadly I do!
Since my early/mid 20’s I’ve struggled with it, and have used lubricants – but sometimes it’s just embarrassing and some boyfriends haven’t understood or dealt with it well – I guess thinking they’re doing something wrong. I’m aware it could be a mental thing, but hell… this stuff really works!
I started using the New Chapter omega-7 gel tabs at first, but switched to SIBU after the first bottle and I believe it works much better! I take it daily… and have not used lubricant once since I started taking it consistently in February!
It’s truly liberating. I feel so much more confident, and sexy. I no longer have to stress about “am I ready to go.” My body was just not in the same place as my mind. I’m sure the stress was worsening the issue… so it’s nice to relieve that fear.
Sometimes I am truly shocked at how much moisture I’ve got going on now! So is my boyfriend, haha ? We are BOTH happy customers. Supplements obviously don’t work for everyone, but it works for me ? I’m 31 now, and I finally feel like a normal healthy woman.”
In an ideal world we’d never have to deal with a blemish again, and we would enjoy clear, acne free skin that stays simply flawless year after year.
Of course, as human beings, this is not realistic, and all sorts of factors can contribute to an annoying acne breakout. These factors may include diet, lifestyle, hormones and genetic factors to name a few.
A mild breakout or random blemish now and then, such as around that time of the month, isn’t unusual, but if you find yourself dealing with more than just the odd pesky pimple, then we urge you to keep reading, because you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
Moderate to severe acne can put a real dent in your self esteem, but you’ll be surprised at just how quickly you can start enjoying clearer and happier skin.
Here are some of our top tips for acne free skin that will help to soothe and heal, as well as prevent future breakouts.
1. Say No To Prescription Lotions and Opt For Natural Products Instead
There are loads of prescription lotions that are supposed to heal your problem skin by drying out your blemishes, but unfortunately this is just a temporary fix that can have some nasty side effects, such as redness, itchiness and even rashes.
Our SIBU Sea Berry Seed Oil is 100% organic, and has been the first to help thousands dealing with problematic skin. Even after prescriptions had failed.
For a long-term solution keep your skin clear with natural products that will balance your oil levels without over-drying your skin, which will only make the problem worse.
Our products here at SIBU are especially wonderful for problematic skin thanks to our key ingredient, namely Sea Buckthorn.
Sea Buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6 and 9, as well as the richest source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega 7. This fatty acid is vital for healthy skin, hair and nails, and helps to soothe, treat and prevent breakouts by fighting free radicals and reducing inflammation in the skin.
2. Say No To Antibiotics and Prescription Drugs and Yes To Clean, Fresh Foods
Doctors may be quick to prescribe antibiotics to clear your troubled skin, but again, this is usually just a “quick fix” that won’t last, and there are often side-effects that can affect your health.
Instead, reassess your diet, and ditch all the foods that don’t provide you with any real nutrients. When filling your body with whole fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and grains, you are not only boosting your health, but you are giving your skin the best chance to stay clear and glowing.
Our Omega 7 Pure supplements contains over 190 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidants along with omegas 3, 6, 9, & the rare beauty omega, omega 7.
Omega 7 literally feeds your skin the building blocks it needs to be healthy.
3. Say No To Stress and Choose To Breathe
Stress plays a big role in the condition of your skin. When we stress, our body releases a hormone called cortisol, which can produce too much sebum, resulting in nasty breakouts.
If stress is a big part of your life, then try and figure out what exactly is stressing you out and find ways to reduce your stress. Practices like meditation or yoga, or even spending a few minutes doing something you love everyday will not only make a huge improvement on your mental state, your skin will reward you too!
Don’t let acne rule your life. By simply changing your diet, using natural products and lowering your stress levels, you can make a huge difference in the condition of your skin. Don’t hesitate to share your acne free skin results with us!
You’ve probably heard how beneficial omega 7 is for your whole body—your skin, losing weight, and keeping your energy levels stabilized. If you’ve spent any time researching omega 7, you’ve most likely found information that purified omega 7 supplements are the best. While the research may look convincing, it’s simply not true. Don’t let this misinformation deprive your body of the natural, safe and wholesome source of omega 7 that can be found in sea buckthorn.
What is Omega 7?
If you’ve ever had to ask, “What is Omega 7?” then this post is vital for you and your health. Omega 7 is a class of unsaturated fats that has amazing healing properties. Omega 7 oils can help prevent you from gaining weight, as well as clear up acne, regulate metabolism, and make blood pressure stable. An excellent source of Omega 7 is sea buckthorn, which is a non-cruelty and vegan way to get this helpful oil in your diet. However, there are many misconceptions about this oil, and the FAQ section below will help you understand the benefits of Omega 7 from sea buckthorn as well as clarify some myths about what Omega 7 really is.
Is Omega 7 in sea buckthorn the same as Omega 7 in fish oil?
While some people might try to tell you it doesn’t matter where you get your Omega 7 oil from, that’s not exactly true. If you’ve ever wondered “What is Omega 7 made from?,” here is your answer. Omega 7 that is purified from fish oil is refined through a lengthy process that ends up stripping the nutrient of some of its most valuable qualities. It also has toxins from the sea water that are highly concentrated. If you want all the health benefits of Omega 7 oil without the yucky stuff, look to the Omega 7 supplements extracted from sea buckthorn.
Sea buckthorn undergoes minimal processing to extract the Omega 7. Because it is already in a stable, clean state to begin with, it takes less processing to extract the goodness. Another positive aspect of Omega 7 taken from sea buckthorn is that it is completely vegan and cruelty-free. Since the Omega 7 is concentrated from a plant source rather than an animal source, it can be used by just about anyone.
Still unsure about which Omega 7 is better? Think about the amount of processing that goes into Omega 7 capsules. Fish oil Omega 7 includes processing with bleaches, surfactants, and certain steps named “deacidification” and “recrystallization,” required to extract Omega 7 oil from fish. Yuck! When you compare the simple process of obtaining Omega 7 from sea buckthorn to the multi-step, chemical-heavy process of extraction from fish oil, it’s a simple choice to make.
Is palmitic acid good for you?
While we’re on the topic of what is Omega 7, we should clear up some misconceptions. You may have heard that palmitic acid is bad for you and that Omega 7 supplements from sea buckthorn are not safe because of the presence of palmitic acid. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. In short, there is nothing to worry about when it comes to palmitic acid. In fact, palmitic acid is in more things than you probably realize.
To help you understand just how unfounded this claim is, there is more palmitic acid present in dark chocolate and olive oil than there is in sea buckthorn. These are foods that are good for us in reasonable amounts and that most people would not hesitate to consume because they are considered healthy.
Like most things in life, too much of something can be a bad thing, and that’s certainly the case with palmitic acid. Although too much palmitic acid in your diet is not healthy, the amount of palmitic acid in a 1000 mg dose of SIBU Omega-7 Support Soft Gels is under the 1% daily limit recommended by the WHO.
In addition to the Omega 7 that comes from sea buckthorn, there are other sources of Omega 7 that might already be a part of your diet. Omega 7 oils like macadamia oil, dandelion oil, avocado oil, and pomegranate oil can be a healthy and tasty addition to your diet. Oily fish like tuna, salmon, sardines, anchovies, and herring are another way to add Omega 7 to your diet.
But keep in mind, the amount of omega 7 you get into your system from food is minimal compared to what you would get from the SIBU Omega-7 Support Soft Gels.
What is Omega 7 sea buckthorn oil good for?
If you’re already doing research on Omega 7 nutrients, we probably don’t need to tell you all the wonderful things they can do for your body—but we will anyway. Omega 7 is a healthy oil that lubricates your body’s systems and makes your body function better. It will make your skin look younger and have fewer wrinkles, strengthen your heart and consequently your circulatory system, prevent acne breakouts, and help your blood sugar stay at a healthy level. It will also do wonders for your hair and nails.
The Omega 7, found so purely in sea buckthorn, is truly a nutrient you don’t want to go without. As your body ages, it needs all the help it can get to keep in peak physical form. When your body gets older it requires a strong foundation to stand the test of age. Omega 7 supplements can help your body keep its youthful look and feel.
If you’re ready to take control of your health and experience the benefits of Omega 7 in a plant-based, vegan form, order raw, unaltered nutrition from SIBU Omega-7 Support Soft Gels today. You’re going to look and feel amazing.
Below you’ll see that we’ve put together a series of slides to help debunk the myth that man-made, “purified” Omega 7 supplements are superior to raw, unaltered wholefood nutrition. We’ll dive into more detail about the purification process required for each and why sea buckthorn is a key source of Omega 7 that your body will thrive on.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How much palmitic acid is in Omega-7 Support Gels?
A:The total amount of palmitic acid in a dose of Omega-7 Support Soft Gels is slightly less than 1% of the daily maximum limit the WHO (World Health Organization) recommends. One dose of the SIBU soft-gels contains about 40% Omega 7 (mostly palmitoleic acid and a little cis-vaccenic acid). Palmitic acid is bad in large quantities (as in most American diets) but 1 dose of 1000mg of SIBU soft-gels contains less than 1% of the recommended daily maximum so it’s negligible.
Q: What’s the daily recommended dose for the Omega-7 Support Gels?
A: The daily recommended dose for the Omega 7 Support is 2 500mg soft gels/day.Be sure to check with your doctor about Omega 7’s possible effects on your body before you begin.
Q: What’s the daily recommended dose for SIBU’s Omega-Pure?
A:We recommend starting with 1 oz. per day. You can slowly increase from there up to 4 oz a day.
Q: Can Omega-7 Supplements help you lose weight?
A: While Omega 7 doesn’t necessarily make you lose weight, it does signal the body to stop storing excess fats to help keep weight off. Omega 7 has been shown in studies to help the metabolic system function properly. It triggers the body to burn fat rather than store it. Omega 7 Support is NOT a weight loss product; however, sea buckthorn oil and Omega 7 do have benefits that aid in fat use in the body.
