What is Sea Buckthorn? (Omegia®)

What is Sea Buckthorn(Omegia®)?

Sea buckthorn, known as “holy fruit” in Tibet, is found in centuries-old medicinal texts in Tibet and China. It was used there to treat coughing, digestive problems, skin issues, wounds and burns, and even depression in some cases. Recently, science has come to discover its dense nutritional content of omega 3 6 7 9, vitamins, and antioxidants. 


The genus name of Sea Buckthorn "Hippophae" originates from the Greek words "Hippo", horse, and "Phaos", to shine. It is due to the ancient Greek use of sea buckthorn as horse feed to make their skins to shine more. 

When Alexander the Great headed back from India after conquering Persia, he traveled with his troops through the desert regions now known as Pakistan and Iran. Short on food and water, the soldiers and horses were dying. They passed an area where Sea Buckthorn was growing. After feeding on the berries and leaves, the horses regained full vigor, reflected in their shiny coats.

Omega 7

Chemical Structure of Omega 7

Chemical Structure of Omega 7

Omega 7 is a novel unsaturated fatty acid that was first discovered by scientists at Harvard Medical School in 2008. Researches have shown that Omega 7 may help prevent cardiovascular disease, cholesterol accumulation and lipid deposits in blood vessels, in addition to aiding to stimulate mucous membrane regeneration in the ocular, oral, respiratory, intestinal, vaginal and skin tissues.*

In nature, Omega 7 can be found Avocado, Peruvian Anchovy Fish, and Macadamia Nut. However, Tibetan Sea Buckthorn has the highest Omega 7 content.

With our advanced supercritical CO₂ fluid extraction and purification technology, we are capable of extracting 45% or more Omega 7 (CardiOmegia™) in its natural triglyceride form, which is up to 4.5X higher compared with other Omega 7 sources.
