Recent Studies Show Direct Benefits of Sea Buckthorn for Mucous Membrane Health
Whether you’re in your 20’s or post-menopausal, this V-Day, take some time to think about optimal V-health.
One natural way to maximize vaginal health is with sea buckthorn. Sea buckthorn is a plant grown in the Himalayas that produces amazing berries jam-packed with antioxidants and omega fatty acids—including the rare Omega 7.
Many people suffer from dry or irritated mucous membranes. Oral supplementation of sea buckthorn berry oil can help with a number of chronic dryness related issues including vaginal dryness.
A recent study published on science-truth.com points out some interesting findings about how sea buckthorn can help support vaginal health.
