Not all sea buckthorn products provide Omega-7. Only certain parts of the whole berry contain this rare important fatty acid. Clinically studied Omega-7 (SB-150™) combines both sea buckthorn berry pulp for Omega-7 and seed for additional essential fatty acids, including beneficial Omega-3, -6, and -9.
- 150 mg Omega-7 per softgel
- Clinically studied sea buckthorn
- Features palmitoleic acid from the berry
- Hand harvested, berry protected from rupture and oxidation
- Sustainable practices protect source
- Supercritical CO2 extraction provides highest purity—no heat or solvents
- No heavy metals or other dangerous contaminants, unlike fish sources of omega-7
†† Support of healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range

What makes sea buckthorn such an expensive ingredient?
Sea buckthorn berries are difficult to harvest. They must be removed from shrub-like trees covered in thorns. As a shortcut, some companies actually cut down the shrubs, freeze the branches, and shake them to make the frozen berries fall off. This is a poor choice for two reasons. Freezing and then shaking off the berries damages them and yields a poor quality, low nutrient extract. Cutting down the shrub as a harvesting method is not a sustainable practice. All of the sea buckthorn berries in Omega-7 are hand-harvested. This is labor intensive, and thus more expensive, but well worth it. It ensures that the plants survive to produce a crop year after year and allows us to offer a highly potent and effective product.
What is “supercritical CO2 extraction”?
When the most active and beneficial compounds of a plant have been identified and isolated for use in a dietary supplement or food, that product is called an “extract.” There are a number of different ways to remove these desirable compounds from the plant. Water and alcohol are two of the most well-known and commonly used materials (technically known as “solvents”). In fact, a tea bag in hot water is an example of a water extraction that almost everyone has at some time prepared for themselves. Supercritical CO2, meaning carbon dioxide in a liquid form, is a special type of non-toxic solvent that is particularly good for extracting essential oils without damaging them or causing them to become rancid through oxidation. Supercritical CO2 extract is the preferred method for obtaining a full spectrum essential oil extract, discarding the non-essential fibrous plant material. This process is a cold extraction that uses no heat. Supercritical CO2 yields a very pure extract, with no heavy metals or potential for bacterial growth. Because it evaporates completely there is also no concern about contamination or residue left in the extracted materials.
