Omega-7 and menopause
Our Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil is a firm favourite among many women experiencing menopause. This is partly due to its high content of omega-7.
Our oil contains around 34g of omega-7 per 100g of oil, and can be taken by the spoon, drizzled onto breakfast bowls or added into smoothies. It has a lovely botanical flavour which complements other fruity tastes.
Studies have shown that sea buckthorn oil can be effective in easing vaginal dryness during the menopause. Some scientists have suggested that it may be a good natural option for women who cannot, or prefer not to undertake hormonal treatment.
Foods with omega-7
Omega-7 is quite rare in the plant world, but luckily there are some good sources.
Sea buckthorn berries are a fantastic source of omega-7. In fact, many of the omega-7 supplements on the market are derived from sea buckthorn berries.
Omega-7 is also present in foods like avocado and macadamia nuts.
As well as our bestselling Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, we recommend trying our Organic Sea Buckthorn Juice or Sea Buckthorn Shots if you want to increase your omega-7 intake.
Not only do they provide omega-7, but they’re also full of vitamin C and a source of beta-carotene. This combination of nutrients is brilliant for your skin.
