Television personality and medical expert Dr. Oz praised the Himalayan sea buckthorn berry on his show recently. The tiny orange fruit (only one-third the size of a blueberry) is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C. Recent studies conclude that the berry actually impedes the body’s ability to store excess fat.
In addition to its value in fat storage regulation, the berry provides a concentrated dose of omega-7, a fatty acid crucial to collagen production that is relatively scarce among basic fruits and vegetables.
Omega-7, in combination with the berry’s other acids, make the tiny fruit an ideal ingredient for facial and hair moisturizing products. Sea buckthorn oil, when rubbed on the face topically, can prevent wrinkles and brighten the skin.
Dr. Oz emphasized that the berry has not only beauty benefits, but also curative value. Omega-7 derived from the “miracle berry” signals the intestinal lining to secrete lubricants that ease the digestive processes, making the berry a natural cure for constipation.
Sea buckthorn berry can be found in a line of health and beauty products from Sibu Beauty.
