I ordered the capsules which are described as Sea Buckthorn oil capsules. I ordered this for my hair, nails and mucous membranes ....
I haven't visited Tibet but I'll bet you've thought about it.........just to go skiing, of course. Don't forget your silk robe. ;)
Did you find the Golden Child, yet, Conor? Good grief, you surely can't have misplaced it! :o
Quoted TextThe natural botanical source of omega-7 oil, Sea Buckthorn, is comprised of both palmitoleic and cis-vaccenic acids and has been used in the ancient tradition for centuries to promote skin, urogenital and digestive health.
The key source of omega-7’s lauded skin support properties comes from a specific fatty acid: palmitoleic acid. It is a naturally occurring component of healthy skin, and is a highly effective antioxidant providing strong anti-aging support because of its ability to rein in free radicals. A 1999 report suggested that palmitoleic acid may help support healthy skin. This key constituent of omega-7 is also a strong emollient – a substance that soothes and moisturizes the skin and promotes the regeneration of tissues.
Omega-7: Traditional Skin & Membrane Support
While the benefit of Sea Buckthorn on the body’s largest organ, the skin, has been widely documented in ancient texts, it also has an extensive history of traditional use in Tibet and Mongolia for the body’s sensitive internal organs – in particular the mucous membranes that line the stomach/GI tract, upper respiratory tract and vagina. The ability of this botanical to help moisturize and soothe these sensitive internal areas in addition to its external skin benefits has made it a staple of traditional herbal systems. Similar properties have been reported in various modern studies.
Omega-7 nicely complements any essential fatty acid health regimen. The berries and seeds of this revered botanical are also a source of traditional omega-3, -6 and -9 ... making it the optimal form of essential fatty acid supplementation, and one that everyone should consider incorporating into their skin and membrane health routine.
Quoted TextFrom Conor: Each new mention of some obscure 'superfood' or whatnot by Doctor Oz, Oprah or whomever brings forth a new wave of snake oil salesmen that purportedly have sourced the most organic, the most pristine or the absolute only one on the market that was harvested during a full-moon autumnal equinox and, at the exact moment of the equilux, blessed by the wild gyrations of mysterious, secret-incantation-chanting Tibetans on a remote mountaintop whilst being spat upon by the eldest of all the tribal Lamas wearing a consecrated raw silk robe made solely from the thread of a single albino silkworm born on the fifth hour of the fifth day of the fifth month in the Year of the Dragon. Sorry, I digress.
