What is sea berry (sea buckthorn)?
- High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea berry is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it’s the world’s richest source of the elusive Omega-7 fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails. Learn more about the sea buckthorn berry here.
What is Omega-7?
- Omega-7 fatty acid (also called “Palmitoleic Acid” in most scientific and clinical publications) can be found in animal and plant sources, including macadamia nuts, cold-water fish and sea berries. Sea berry contains a much higher concentration of this valuable fatty acid, up to 40% as compared to 17% in macadamia nuts and .06% in anchovies. While this omega has numerous skin and health benefits, it is also known for its ability to support a healthy weight, cardiovascular health, and gastro-intestinal health.
