Sea buckthorn berry oil is a beneficial oil used in dietary supplements and cosmetics. This oil is known for its anti-aging properties and powerful antioxidants. Some studies suggest that it may have the ability to promote cardiovascular health function, lung function, protect mucus membranes, boost memory function, improve immune function, and promote healthy skin and hair growth. Other studies indicate it may protect skin against the damage caused by sun's UV rays and, help alleviate dry skin.
Basic research suggest that buckthorn berry oil gets its medicinal benefits from its high fatty acid concentration, antioxidants, vitamins and phytosterols. In particular the fatty acids palmitoleic acid (omega-7), linoleic acid (omega-6), and oleic acid (omega-9) carry much of the health benefits in buckthorn berry oil. Palmitoleic acid is a conditional fatty acid (omega-7) that is commonly found attached to glycerides in fat tissue, and although it is found in all cells it is abundant in liver tissue. Conditional means this fatty acid is normally made by your body but under stress your body may not be able to make enough and may require an outside source. Some studies have demonstrated this is a good fatty acid known to down-regulate mRNA expressions of adipocytokine genes (TNFa and resistin) in white adipose tissue and lipogenic genes (SREBP-1, FAS, and SCD-1), thereby promoting insulin sensitivity. This helps to support healthy blood glucose levels in healthy humans, increasing glucose metabolism and the production of ATP which is needed to run many of your metabolic pathways. Studies also indicate that palmitoleic acid improves liver lipid metabolism and slows down the aging process of skin by decreasing roughness while increasing elasticity.
