Tips on sea buckhorn oil

Regarding Sjögren’s syndrome, I wonder whether researchers are aware of sea buckthorn oil in capsule form and available as ‘Omega 7’? The capsules contain omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 and vitamin A (beta carotene), which maintains normal structure and function of the skin and mucus membranes, such as in the eyes, nose, mouth, and female reproductive tract.

The capsules are manufactured in Finland and imported and distributed by Pharma Nord (UK) Ltd, Morpeth, NE61 2DB.

Obviously the capsules shouldn't be taken by pregnant and lactating women, and those on medication without first seeking professional advice. The capsules are free from artificial colouring, yeast, sugar and gluten, and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
