Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil for Dry Eye Syndrome

Question: This product (Pure Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil) was recommended to me for dry eyes. Does it help this condition, and if so, how?  Thank you.

Answer: Emma,

Research has shown that Sea Buckthorn Oil may help relieve symptoms of “dry eye syndrome”. Sea buckthorn is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants.

In one study, researchers recruited 100 adults with symptoms of “dry eye syndrome”, a condition that occurs when the eyes don’t produce enough to tears to stay properly lubricated. For three months, participants took two grams of sea buckthorn oil or a placebo each day. By the study’s end, those who’d taken sea buckthorn oil showed a reduction in several dry eye symptoms (including redness and burning).

In my practice I have found that increasing one’s intake of essential fatty acids has helped ease dry eye symptoms. I like a combination of Pure Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil and our Ultra Omega 3-6-9.

Please let me know how this works out for you. Give it at least 3 months, and make sure you also drink your 8 glasses of water each day.
