Mucosal membranes provide a protective shield for our digestive, urinary and respiratory tracts, as well as the inner surfaces of our eyes, mouths and arteries. Often becoming dry and more prone to inflammation as we age, these membranes play a vital role in protecting us from pathogens, toxins and allergens. Therapeutic oils in the seeds and berries of a tree called Sea Buckthorn contain exceptionally high concentrations of over 200 bio-active antioxidant compounds, as well as Omega-7, an essential fatty acid currently being studied for its ability to help reduce dryness of the mouth, eyes and skin; regulate cholesterol levels; control platelet aggregation and increase arterial flexibility. Sea Buckthorn (source of Omega-7) has a well-documented history of use for ulcers, dermatitis, eczema and chronic membrane dryness. Dr. Oz has also touted Omega-7 for oral, cardio, intestinal and skin health. As always, we guarantee your satisfaction.
