Have You Heard of this Little Miracle Berry, Sea Buckthorn?
I wasn’t too familiar with sea buckthorn, until just recently. I had no idea one little berry could contain over 190 phytonutrients and all of the omega (3, 6, 9, and the rare Omega-7) fatty acids. Whether eaten, taken in pill form, or applied topically, sea buckthorn can benefit the skin, hair and nails, as well as provide the body with protein building amino acids such as vitamin B1, B2, K, A and folic acid. With over 60 antioxidants, 20 minerals, healthy fatty acids, carotenoids, xanthophylls, phenolics, and flavanoids, this orange berry is a power house of nutrients! Not only that, sea buckthorn berries are believed to have immune-boosting and heart-
Seabuck Wonders, the original sea buckthorn company, has been providing maximum potency sea buckthorn products for over forty years. Seabuck Wonders makes creams, cleansers, serums, supplements and oils. I am waiting to take the hair, skin and nails vitamins until my twins come. My hair and nails are great right now because of my pregnancy; and I just want to be on the safe side when it comes to supplements. I do LOVE the skin cream and cleanser though and have been using it regularly. I feel a nice softness in my skin and I feel good knowing all of the products are 100% organic.
Seabuck Wonders has a great site that lists all of the different benefits each product has to offer. I just learned that the Omega-7 may act as a natural lubricant and can be beneficial for women in menopause or who suffer from dryness down below. Essential fatty acids help support the immune system and cardiovascular system and the seed oil can be very beneficial for keeping both systems functioning properly. Of course always check with your doctor if you’re on any other medications to make sure they are ok with each other before supplementing on your own.
In honor of National Breast Cancer month, Seabuck Wonders is offering 10% off all of their products and donating 10% of all sales to Breast Cancer Awareness. The little magical berry may help protect against many diseases (including breast cancer) as well as provide soothing relief to cancer patients who can use the product to reduce negative effects from chemo and radiation. One cancer patient, Kere, claims the supplement really helped her hair grow back quicker.
If you’re curious to try it out let me know what you think. You can use code NBCF16 for the discount. I’m also curious to hear from you what other wonder fruits or veggies you may know of and or make sure to include in your diet or skin care regimen.
