Digestive health is a topic that is on the minds of many people in 2015. It’s no wonder; did you know that Approximately 1.6 million Americans currently have Irritable Bowel Disorder, a growth of about 200,000 since the last time CCFA reported this figure (in 2011)?- Crohns & Colitis foundation.
While probiotics are no doubt the most well-known products for dealing with digestive issues, many people do not realize that sea buckthorn oil can be extremely helpful for the support of a healthy digestive system.
Although there are many causes of digestive health issues and many different kinds of disorders, the root of many of these ailments is inadequate health of the cell membrane in the intestines. One of the jobs of the cell membranes in the intestines is to separate the healthy nutrients that our bodies need from food from toxins and unusable food waste. In cases of cell membrane malfunction, the toxins get into the bloodstream which causes digestive issues and lot of other problems. Cell health is greatly impacted by the presence of Omegas, particularly Omega 3.
Another digestive issue faced by many Americans are different types of gastric ulcers. Digestive health supplements are becoming more and more popular but few are able to address the issue of ulcers. Sea buckthorn has been widely studied in both human and animal models for these types of ailments and many others. One study using sea buckthorn oil showed that Oral application of sea buckthorn oil relieved pain and accelerated the repair process of gastric and duodenal epithelial tissue and mucosa (Yang). According to this study, sea buckthorn’s complex Omega content as well as its carotenoid, plant sterol and tocopherol components all help to support the human digestive system.
Sea buckthorn oils are also known for rehydrating dry mucosa to aid with bowel movements. The Omega 7 fatty acid content in sbt oil is known for lubricating dry intestinal tracts by supporting mucous production. This can help those suffering from constipation or people having difficult bowel movements.
Our most popular product is our Omega 7 complete capsule is the best option for support of digestive health. It is a blend of the seed oil and the berry oil, so it has the full spectrum of Omegas offered by sea buckthorn for maximum digestive support plus tons of other benefits.
