Sea Buckthorn Omega 7 For Heart Health

A simple, wholefood way to keep your heart healthy!

Word is getting out about the amazing cardiovascular benefits of Omega 7.

You can expect to hear a lot more about this fatty acid, also known as Palmitoleic Acid, due to exciting scientific research proving its benefits for heart health.

The world’s richest, purest source of Omega 7 is found in wild-crafted, Himalayan sea buckthorn berries.

Raises HDL (Good Cholesterol)

Antioxidant and Omega 7-rich sea buckthorn juice increases HDL levels.

A study by Clair Eccleston, et al. determined that 8 weeks of supplementation with 300 ml of sea buckthorn juice daily resulted in “… an overall increase in HDL-C in the active treatment group of 14% compared with baseline over the study period.”  (Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. 2002, June; 13(6): 346-354)

Healthier cholesterol levels in 8 weeks?! I’m in!

Lowers LDL (bad cholesterol) and Improves Triglycerides

A 2013 Study from The University of Turku, Finland indicated that supplementation with “sea buckthorn berries induced beneficial effects on serum triglycerides.  Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil reduced the serum concentration of total and LDL cholesterol.”  (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2013;98:941-51)

Reduces Platelet Aggregation- What the heck does that mean?

Put simply, it can help reduce blood clots….

Research from Anu Johansson et. Al. from the University of Turku, Finland indicates that healthy males given 5 g per day of Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil for 4 weeks resulted in “…a clear decrease in the rate of adenosine-5’-diphosphate induced platelet aggregation.” These findings suggest beneficial effects of Sea Buckthorn Oil on blood clotting.  (Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 11:491-495, 2000)

Lowers C-Reactive Protein- Again, what does it mean?!

The C-reactive protein a substance produced by your liver that increases when there is inflammation in your body.

So the higher the C-reactive protein, the higher the inflammation in your body.

According to a study done by P Larma, et al., from the University of Turku, Finland, subjects given a 28g dose of sea buckthorn puree for 90 days showed a significant reduction of C-Reactive Protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.  (European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2008) 62, 1123 – 1130)

Best Source Of Omega 7

Sea Buckthorn BerriesThere’s a lot of buzz about the cardiovascular benefits of Omega 7 in the media recently.  But what foods contain Omega 7 in a high enough concentration to make a significant difference for your health?


Anchovies are one of the few fish that contain enough Omega 7 to be considered a potential source.  However, there are only 25mg of Omega 7 per 10 grams of anchovies.  With this ratio, about 7 ounces (200 grams) of anchovies would need to be consumed per day to get 500mg of Omega 7.

Since most people do not eat anchovies, much less in these quantities, other natural sources are a more practical choice.

Macadamia Nuts

One of the most prevalent sources of Omega 7 found in the plant kingdom is the macadamia nut.  This creamy and crunchy treat contains 14% Omega 7 by volume.  About 4 grams or approximately 4-5 nuts per day provide 500 mg of Omega 7.

Macadamia nuts are a delicious source of Omega 7, but with a 75% fat content and limited nutrient profile, they may not be the best daily or long-term source of Omega 7.

Sea Buckthorn Berry Puree

The richest source of Omega 7 found in nature is Sea Buckthorn Berries weighing in at 18.87%.  1 ounce of unfiltered sea buckthorn berry puree provides 536 mg of Omega 7.  In addition to its Omega 7 or palmitoleic acid content, sea buckthorn also contains more than 190 bioactive compounds that benefit cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, urogenital and mucosal health.Sibu Seven Omega 7 Pure Image

2012 A Record Setting Sea Buckthorn Harvest

Sibu 2012 Sea Buckthorn Berry HarvestSibu, LLC, the leader in premium sea buckthorn berry-based topical and ingestible products sold under the Sibu Beauty and soon-to-be-released Sibu Seven labels; marked this year’s harvest from their proprietary Himalayan location, as the best in the young company’s history and reported that annual yield was up over 25% from last year.

Bruce McMullin, Founder and CEO of Sibu, LLC who recently returned from the harvest location 12,000 ft. above sea level that borders Tibet, enthusiastically declared, “We are thrilled at the quality, abundance and color vibrancy of this year’s sea buckthorn crop. The deeper hues of orange/red tones that appear in the berry, the better the nutritional profile. The sea buckthorn berry has been used in Eastern Civilizations for centuries in hundreds of medicinal and whole-body applications, which are just becoming recognized and documented here at home, for the numerous health and wellness benefits. In addition to being the highest known concentration of Omega 7 found in any food source, sea buckthorn is also becoming recognized as an amazing natural resource that contains over 190 bio-actives and is a powerhouse of nutrients. Properly grown, harvested and processed, premium sea buckthorn berries contain 10 times the Vitamin C as an orange, essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9 plus an impressive amount of carotenoids, flavonoids, amino acids, and over 20 minerals.”

McMullin, who recently established the United States Sea Buckthorn Association, which is aligned with the International Seabuckthorn Association based in China, is recognized as the force greatly responsible for bringing the significance of the sea buckthorn berry to the western world and continues to encourage research and scientific testing on the berry’s positive effects on health, beauty and wellness functions.

Although sea buckthorn grows in several regions throughout the world it is the Turkistanica variety that has been clinically shown to be a better and more nutritionally complete berry. Sibu is the only company using this varietal of sea buckthorn in their consumer products. Contributing factors include the pristine air quality, rich soil as well as low oxygen levels and high solar radiation. Additionally, Sibu, which follows sustainable farming practices and employs local people through a fair trade agreement, subscribes to the centuries-old techniques used by the indigenous people of harvesting the fruit in the cool, early morning hours before the heat of the sun diminishes the nutrients. Only the ripened fruit is collected into ground cloths by striking the branches of the sea buckthorn bush and then processed within a few short hours. The pureed fruit maintains the rich orange fresh-off-the-branch color, which signifies that oxidation has not occurred; is immediately frozen to lock in the nutrients and sent to the US to manufacture and distribute the finished products under the company’s strict quality-control standards.

Sibu LLC introduced the Sibu Beauty line of topical and ingestible products in 2009 and will soon officially unveil the Sibu Seven line of supplements. All of the products contain Wild Crafted/USDA Organic Sea Buckthorn that contains no dangerous chemicals or parabens. The 100% natural products are vegan, cruelty-free and PETA-certified.

New Findings Reveal Omega-7 Beneficial to Heart Health

Omega 7 for Heart Health

For years we have been told about the many benefits of various Omega fatty acids on numerous internal functions but the scientific and medical communities have just begun to realize the remarkable attributes of the little-known and seldom-researched fatty acid, Omega 7, also known as Palmitoleic Acid. 

In a recent study under the tutelage of Dr. Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic, Omega 7 has been touted as the “next Omega” and the positive effects it has demonstrated on the ability to lower dangerous LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while, at the same time, boosting and raising the good, heart-healthy HDL cholesterol. The most astounding difference between Omega 7 and Omega 3 is that while Omega 3 has lowered triglycerides it can subsequently also elevate the “bad” cholesterol or LDL’s.  In addition to negatively impacting the heart, a rise in LDL cholesterol is also a direct link to the potential of developing Type-2 diabetes. 

In the study the total population realized a drop in LDL cholesterol after being administered only 210 mg/day of Omega 7. 

Studies continue throughout the world and new published reports will be available in the coming months. A recent study is outlined by Dr. Roizen. Click here to see his video

It is important to realize that all Omega 7 is not created equally. The methods in growing, harvesting and most importantly extracting and processing make a difference in the effectiveness and potency of this nutritional powerhouse, Omega-7.

The sea buckthorn berry has the highest concentration of Omega 7 of any food source and is the key ingredient in both the topical and ingestible products in the Sibu Beauty line. 

Sibu, LLC is about to introduce a new nutritionally-focused ingestible line of supplements under the label “Sibu 7” which will be available online this fall and on store shelves in early 2013.

What Are We Eating?


In this Information Age, with data at our fingertips, you would think that we would know what is in our food.  But the information available to consumers runs the ragged edge of ethical disclosure when it comes to where our food is coming from and what is disclosed on the ingredient label.


Genetically modified food (GMO’s) is estimated to be in 80% of all packaged foods in the United States, according to the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association.  Of U.S. crops approximately 86% of corn, 94% of soy, 90% of cotton and 90+% of canola are genetically engineered (GE).


What Do They Know That We Don’t?


Over 50 countries, including the European Union and even China have significant restrictions or an outright ban on GMO’s.  Right now, Canada and the United States have no legislation for the disclosure of genetically engineered food.  Why are we late to the table when it comes to GMO legislation?


Rather than being at the forefront of protecting consumers, the U.S. is at the forefront of genetic engineering.  In fact, the U.S. is about to introduce the first genetically modified fish, an Atlantic salmon.  There are grave concerns as to how all of these GMO’s will ultimately affect or contaminate our non-engineered food supply as well as the potential toxicology of GMO’s in general.


Taking Action


The good news is that California is pursuing GMO legislation with “The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.”  Hopefully, other states will follow suit.


On a national level, the “Just Label It” campaign launched in October of 2011 and has already submitted over 500,00 signatures urging the FDA to require labeling of all genetically modified food products.  To get involved go to:

During the next few weeks we will be talking more about Sibu Beauty, what we stand for as a company, the actions we take across the globe to make the world a better place and helping you better understand what goes into making Sibu Beauty.
