The Truth About Purified Omega 7, Sea Buckthorn, & Palmitic Acid

ega 7 supplements in hand

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.

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. 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 that it is completely vegan and cruelty-free. Since the omega 7 that is concentrated comes from a plant source rather than an animal one, 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 each omega 7 capsule. Fish oil omega 7, on the other hand, 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?

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 SIBU Omega-7 Support Soft Gels is under the 1% daily limit recommended by the WHO.

 

What foods contain omega 7?

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.

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. 

 

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.

    I would like to know the approximate concentration of palmitoleic acid in your product. You said that the palmitic acid is about 1% but I missed the palmitoleic acid concentration.
    Thank you in advance for the response.

      Hi Sanda. It seems you may have misunderstood the information given in the article. The 1% is NOT a reference to how much palmitic acid is in 1 dose (1000mg) of Omega-7 Support Soft Gels. 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. There is no guidance from WHO on palmitoleic acid. One dose of the SIBU soft-gels contains about 40% Omega 7 (mostly palmitoleic acid and a little cis-vaccenic acid).

      Bottom line:
      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.
      Palmitoleic acid is good. While there is no recommended daily minimum OR maximum, SIBU Omega-7 Support Soft Gels is a substantial source compared to all other known sources of palmitoeic acid.

    Most of the information that I have read about the omega 7 supplement say that it promotes weight loss. You state that omega 7 support is not a weight loss product. Along with the other benefits this would be the reason I would consider trying the supplement. I am a type II diabetic and if I could lose some weight I could get my sugar numbers down. There is just so much info that is false it is hard to trust what anyone says.

    How much of the Pure Omega 7 Liquid Puree should I take to be most effective? Do you have a suggestion of whether it’s best to take in the morning or evening?

    Thank you!

      Hi Ashlynn,

      We recommend starting with 1 oz. per day. You can slowly increase from there up to 4 oz a day. As far as morning or evening, one isn’t better than the other, however, SIBU Omega 7 Pure carries a lot of vitamins, minerals, omegas, and other nutrients that provide a clean energy boost in the morning. I personally take mine in the morning for this reason. Hope this helps!

    Good Evening,

    Everyone has said to start with 1 oz and increase as needed or desired to 4 oz. I’m a bit confused how do you get oz? The pill states 1k per.

      There are two types of sea buckthorn supplements we provide. Omega 7 Pure which is a liquid (contains the entire sea buckthorn berry & all its nutrients including omegas… think wholefood supplement) – this one is referring to the 1 oz. servings. The second we offer is Omega 7 Support Soft Gels (these contain only the fruit & seed oils providing the healthy omegas) – these are each 1000 mgr of sea buckthorn oil per 2 soft gels. Hope that helps!
