If you watch Dr. Oz (I don;t but friends do), you might have recently heard him talking about a "miracle berry" — sea buckthorn! This tiny berry packs more than double it's weight in terms of health benefits, and will give your kids MORE protection this fall when they are exposed to the many illnesses and germs found in the classroom.
The sea buckthorn berry is most well-known Asian natural remedy, known for its impressive nutritional profile which includes the rare Omega 7, as well as Omega 3, 6, and 9. Omegas are beneficial for cardiovascular health, memory alertness and joint health! Besides its essential fatty acids, sea buckthorn contains a host of vitamins and minerals, super-charged anti-oxidants, and more than 190 phytonutrients to support the immune system during the cold and flu season.
SeabuckWonders offers a full line of USDA certified-organic sea buckthorn berry products to help keep kids (AND moms!) healthy all year long. Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil Blend Omega-7 Complete gel tab capsules can be ingested as part of a daily vitamin regimen, while Sea Buckthorn seed and berry oils can be added to salad dressing, yogurt, juice or your child’s favorite recipe for an extra burst of healthy nutrients!
We were sent the 2 of the oils and 2 of the gel tab capsule products for review.
Kiddo can sometimes have reactions to new products, so I decided to make myself the proverbial 'guinea pig'! I took the Omega-7 complete tabs daily (you take 2-4 tabs twice daily, I took a total of 4 daily) for 2 weeks (each bottle contains 60 tabs). I stopped taking my multi-vitamin, to see how well the Omega-7 would work, as it the Omega-7 contains Vitamins C, E, B1, B6 and β-carotene,as well as nutrients. I also used the Berry oil (which has Omega 7, Vitamins C, E, and A) in iced tea, yogurt and salads, during my third week of testing. It is good for your digestive health as well!
I was very surprised at how much better I felt during the three weeks! My immune system DID seem to be working much better, and I didn't get sick at all! Amazingly, when I stopped taking the Sea Buckthorn I felt worn down, and I was more susceptible to headaches and migraines. Once I started using it again (lesson learned!), they went away again. It may have been coincidence, but I think it was just my immune system warning me to get back to the supplements!
I feel safe offering the products to Kiddo, as I know they helped boost my immune system, with no side effects, and I was pleased to find out that SeabuckWonders has over 15 years of experience producing the highest quality Sea Buckthorn Oils known in the world. This is not a fly-by-night, instant infomercial company! Since introducing their products to the United States back in 1994, the company, has maintained quality production, by using only pure Himalayan, wild-grown, handpicked Sea Buckthorn.
You can purchase their products locally (visit their website for locations) and a list of locations where the products can be online as well. Besides the products we reviewed, they also have facial cream and body lotion made with Sea Buckthorn!
I am pleased to be able to offer 2 lucky BTHM readers samples of the Sea Buckthorn seed products. One reader will get the tabs set, the other the oil set, as shown above.
I know you'll love these products as much as I do!
