Sea Buckthorn Capsules

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hi, I have just been speaking to a lady in an health food store on the phone to see if she had got any Sea Buckthorn Capsules in. I told her I wanted them to help with my Vaginal Atrophy. She said they are a very popular product and a lot of women buy them for the same reason. She thought Fenugreek was no where near as popular and she had never heard of Peuraria Mirifica. Anyway I have since looked for the capsules on Amazon and EBay. But it struck me, I wouldn't know what strength to get or how many to take. Ideally I should have asked the lady in the shop about this but I didn't. Anyone any ideas? Thanks. Shirley

    Shirley, you've just reminded me - tomorrow Aldi have jars of organic coconut on sale for £3, so if anyone's using it for VA and want a bargain, get to your closest store:-)))

    Hi Shirley I got them from Amazon it tells you how many to take on the packet . They increase the mucus naturally relieving dryness so do vitamin e capsules . Hope this helps

      I also got mine on Amazon. I got Seabuckwonders because I saw a review and it said that the berries and seeds have different levels of the omegas and this make takes extracts from both the berries and seeds. It is the Omega 7 that is beneficial to the vagina - that is found in the berries? So, ideally we should be taking suppliments made from the berry extract. The bottle says to take 2-4 capsules per day. Each capsule contains 500mg sea buckthorn oil. That is 1000-2000mg (1-2g) per day. In the research study that found significant improvement in the condition of the vaginal wall cells the participants took 3g per day - so I do that and take 2 capsules 3 x a day (after meals). I have been doing this for some months and have noticed no adverse effects. I was taking Pharma Nord, but they are very expensive.

      Hi ..so I should take 500mg of sea buckthorn oil capsules 2-4 X each day and it helps with the thinning of the vag wall? Atrophy?

      Is it working for you and is this all you are taking? What is Pharma Nord?

      Is it like Etrace?

      Thank you in advance! I really would like to find a natural answer to this before going on Etrace. I heard the Vit E could help too?

      Hi Marl I'm using vitamin e capsules vegetarian ones insert one every night for six weeks. I feel loads better . After the six weeks as and when you need them so I'm going for twice a week. It really lubricates and mends your insides. Give it a try I also took sea buckthorn as that's fab for increasing mucus down below. However it's all expensive so made s choice with but e. The other one to consider is slippery elm

      Thanks so much for your reply. Do you puncture the vitamin E first?

      Also, is there a brand you like? I didn't know they make vegitarian ones but I guess when I look I'll find them. Also, where I'm confused is with the sea buckthorn...do you mean you use the oil and apply topically, or do you take the vitamin by mouth? Or is it a tincture?

      I'm going to get the vitamin E today thanks to you!

      Ok thank you so much. I'll pick up the Vit E capsules. I see that this site wont let the name of supplier of the Sea Buckthorn go through. I'll pick both vitamins up at a health food store, or I'll make sure it's a good brand name. How many SB vitamins a day do you take? one? Do you take every day for months and months?

      Do you do this treatment indefinitely? Or once you were better you stop for a while? I just don't know if anyone on here is being seen by a integrative doctor who's monitoring this and can tell us?

      Hi marl the vitamin e begins with an S if you get my drift. I use vitamin e for six weeks every night. The sea buckthorn I only ever took two a day and I don't take them anymore can't afford both. Once the six weeks is up its trial and error twice a week or every other day it's how you feel. I have alternated with a rose oil and garlic capsule which is also good to keep thrush away. This is all done by using this site and all the ladies recommendations as the doctors sadly don't seem to have enough time to listen. Good luck keep posting
