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.

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.

 

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. 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.

    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.

      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!

      Donna,

      This info may help answer your question…

      a. When you think of Omega 7 Support soft gels, think of those as more of an vegan omega supplement. They’re 80% sea buckthorn fruit oil and 20% sea buckthorn Seed oil. They’re also rich in omegas 3, 6, 9, and omega 7. Omega 7 is what makes sea buckthorn so unique. Great for cardiovascular health, mucosal membrane health (dry eyes, vaginal dryness, etc. ) Also great for skin, hair and nails

      b. The liquid supplements, unlike the soft gels, contain the entire berry, not just the “oils”. Think of this as more of a whole food, whole body supplement with over 190 nutrients including a vegan source of omega 3, 6, 9, and omega 7. Incredible for whole body health, immune system support, healthy cholesterol levels (lowers bad LDL and raises good HDL), naturally increased energy, cardiovascular health. Omega 7 Pure is 100% pure sea buckthorn and is our most potent supplement. Omega 7 Blend is made with other fruit juices for taste so it not as potent as Omega 7 Pure.

      c. In short, it all depends on the person and what their body needs. I usually recommend the Omega 7 Pure as it’s our most potent supplement, provides more and higher amounts of nutrients and provides wholefood, whole body nutritional support

      Hi Laura,

      Thank you for reaching out. I personally had never heard of Ultra Omega Burn. I did check it out and there are a few red flags that come to mind.

      The biggest being that it doesn’t specify the exact source of their Omega 7 and it only contains 250 mg of omega 7.

      As an example, we tested one of the TOP omega 7 supplements sold on Amazon claiming to have 900 mg of omega 7 (it was NOT ultra omega burn we tested).

      It’s sad to say, the amount of omega 7 didn’t even come close to their claims on the packaging.

      Also, Omega 7 is not necessarily a “weight loss” supplement. While it can help signal the body to store excess fats, it does not necessarily help you “lose” weight, but can help you keep it off.

      Definitely do you own research and come to a conclusion you feel comfortable with. What it all comes down to is the quality of the key ingredient, Sea buckthorn/Omega 7. Look for the source of omega 7, how it’s processed, the mg’s per serving, and the company’s track record.

      I know this may not mean much coming from the company, but we truly produce the best and purest sea buckthorn in the world. Our entire company revolves around and depends on the quality of this little sea buckthorn berry that carries the rare Omega 7.

      Our most potent omega 7 supplement, Omega 7 Pure contains 720 mg of omega 7 per serving. As an extra benefit, Omega 7 Pure provides the entire sea buckthorn berry, not just the oils, so you’re not only getting high levels of omega 7, but your body is getting all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants sea buckthorn carries for a complete, whole food support supplement.

      P.S. Watch out for claims of “purified” omega 7. It’s anything but “pure”.

        Thank you so much for your reply! I found it very helpful and informative. It is true that the Ultra Omega Burn site is not crystal clear on its sourcing and weight-loss claims. Your company is thorough in its information and clarity on what this product can really do for the body. I’m sold! My husband and I will be switching to SIBU.

      Hi Joyce,

      Omega 7 Support soft gels are a great option to help alleviate vaginal dryness.

      Here are the key differences between Omega 7 Support and Omega 7 Pure:

      Omega 7 Support Soft Gels: The soft gels contain sea buckthorn fruit oil (80%) and sea buckthorn seed oil (20%). Rich in omega 3, 9, and of course, omega 7. It’s omega 7 that will help with vaginal dryness. These contain 341 mg. of Omega 7 per serving

      Omega 7 Pure: This contains the entire sea buckthorn berry, not just the oils. The advantage with the liquid is you get all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. It’s more of a whole food supplement that will help in a variety of different ways. This is our most potent supplement and contains 721 mg. of omega 7 per serving. NOTE: Omega 7 Pure is very potent and very tart. Most will mix it with juice, a smoothie, or even water to dilute the potency. You can also shoot 1 oz. straight.

      If you’re not used to strong, tart/bitter flavored supplements, I would recommend the soft gels. If you’re okay with these types of supplement drinks, definitely go for Omega 7 Pure.

      I hope this helps
