Understanding Vaginal Dryness 101

Feminine dryness is a much more common problem than people might imagine. Let's start with some surprising statistics.

  • Around 18% of women in the U.S. suffer from feminine dryness.
  • Up to 90% of women living with vaginal discomfort don't seek treatment support.

Individual research studies reveal that dryness can increase with age. One study followed a group of women for an extended period, starting at ages 42 to 53 and ending at ages 57 to 69.

For this group, the rate of those suffering with dryness increased from 19.4% at the beginning to 34% towards the end of the study. The most heard treatment for feminine dryness and atrophy are hormone based. While this approach works for some, it has difficult side effects for others.

Many asked is there a natural solution for female dryness that is accessible to every woman? The answer may be found with sea buckthorn oil, a traditional health remedy made from the berries and seeds of a Himalayan berry tree.

The Research Behind Sea Buckthorn Oil for Feminine Dryness and How it Works

Organic sea buckthorn oil was used as a natural remedy for female reproductive health in traditional medicine in Asia. Traditional medicine used the oil to specifically help issues with the uterus and other reproductive organs.

One of the top benefits of sea buckthorn oil is its ability to fight dryness throughout the body. This is something that long time users of sea buckthorn oil supplements report, and it's also been the subject of research studies. On a chemical level, sea buckthorn oil has a unique blend of compounds, making it useful for many different health applications.

Sea buckthorn’s lipid and antioxidant content are the major components that help it fight dryness. Researchers commonly use a mixture of sea buckthorn seed and berry oil to get the benefits from the Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 and omega 7.

One study focused on the effects of sea buckthorn oil on vaginal atrophy in postmenopausal women. Vaginal atrophy describes the thinning of the vaginal mucosa, which also causes dryness. Because hormone based pills for this condition are not suitable for many women, researchers wanted to know if sea buckthorn oil could be an alternative option.

Epithelium Layer

The area most affected by vaginal atrophy is the epithelium layer, which is made up of squamous cells. Dysfunction and dryness of the epithelium causes discomfort for women and can lead to other serious health issues. A group of 116 women suffering from symptoms were the test subjects and placebo groups were used.

Participants were not to use other oil supplements during the trial, which was three months long. Subjects were given a capsule blend of sea buckthorn oil-three capsules twice a day. 

Healthier Mucosa

The studies showed benefits on the integrity of the epithelium layer in the sea buckthorn group. Researchers believe that the bioactive compounds from the sea buckthorn oil were the biggest factors in these benefits.
