Amp Up V-Health this V-Day with Sea Buckthorn

By Seabuck Staff , published Feb 13, 2019

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 points out some interesting findings about how sea buckthorn can help support vaginal health.

Sea buckthorn berry and berry products, for instance juice and oils, have been shown to have a wide range of beneficial effects, of which promoting regeneration of skin and mucous membranes, improving immune functions, reducing oxidation, and strengthening cardiovascular health are highlighted. [1]

The study had some very positive results in the health of urogenital track mucous membranes, including the following conclusions:

  • Oral application of Omega 7 sea buckthorn oil capsules considerably improved chronic vaginal inflammation in three severe cases.
  • The positive effect observed did not take place through increase of circulating estrogen level.
  • Based on the results of the present study and the effects shown in studies documented in literature, oral administration of sea buckthorn oil presents a promising alternative for treating chronic vaginal inflammation. [2]

Another study published on focused on post-menopausal women and resulted in some very positive findings.

SB oil showed beneficial effects on vaginal health, indicating it is a potential alternative for mucosal integrity for those women not able to use estrogen treatment for vaginal atrophy.The improving effect on the integrity of the vaginal epithelium was most likely due to combined effect of the bioactive compounds in sea buckthorn oil, via mechanisms other than the activation of estrogen receptors. Due to the increasing number of women in postmenopausal state, and the risks associated with the standard treatment of vaginal atrophy with estrogen, there is a need for alternative means for maintaining healthy vaginal mucosa . [3]

As more and more women seek out natural products to support an array of health and beauty challenges, the sea buckthorn berry continues to grow in popularity. As a matter of fact, Dr.Oz nicknamed this super fruit the “miracle berry” due to its long list of benefits including:

  • Cellular moisture/ dry cell conditions
  • Digestive support
  • Skin repair for cuts, wounds & burns
  • Vaginal health
  • Age defying
  • Cardiovascular support
  • Immunity boost
  • Healthy inflammation response

You can also use it as a leafy living wall to enclose a patio. Or try planting a row of buckthorn along a lackluster garage wall to transform the sterile area into a backyard habitat.

Buckthorn produces berries in summer, making it a stopping place for birds. Pair buckthorn with other berry-producing shrubs to create a bountiful backyard buffet.
