Solberry Sea Buckthorn Puree – A great way to add omega fatty acids to your Eczema/Psoriasis diet

Solberry Sea Buckthorn benefits Eczema

There are studies that shows that fish-oils have the ability to significantly reduce leukotriene B4, a known inflammatory substance that causes eczema due to the presence of one of the omega 3’s.

However, if you are like me who is allergic to fish, consuming fish oils would be a terrible idea.  Other alternatives includes flax seed oil (which is highly expensive) or eating nuts, seeds or avocados etc.  It is usually hard to keep track on how much Omega’s we need due to the fact that we are more likely to have the deficiency in it along with other vitamins & minerals as well.  However, I found an interesting potential product that I believed help me endure the pain of Eczema on certain parts of my body where it wouldn’t go away.  It is called the Sea Buckthorn Puree!!

Meeting the Creator

In my area, it is regulated by the Food inspection Agency.  I was one of the first people to try it last year before it hit the market in mostly health food stores such as Organza, Vita-health, Sunrise, etc. I have met the creator named Mila Maximets who caught my attention and claimed it help people with psoriasis while I was exploring an Expo in my Hometown.

 I was bit skeptical at first, but the next day I changed my mind and got it for a fair price thinking I have nothing to lose (except for the money part).  I wanted to test it out. I had one huge eczema patch with elevated bumps (or eczema bubbles) that constantly weep & itch like crazy that it became annoying.  It was so gross that I wanted to hide it, but if I were to run a marathon in shorts or capris I bet I would get questions on what happened to my ankle because I honestly looked like I had been severely burnt in that area. My skin was gradually healing after years of phototheraphy but after 2 months of consuming it, it stopped itching & help speed up the healing.

Sorbet – Solberry Sea Buckthorne

As directed, you can dilute a tbsp of Solberry Sea Buckthorn Puree in water 1-3 times daily before meals.  You can mix it with yogurt,  or in a smoothie (my preference) or your favorite beverage because it does have a strong bitterness to it or quoted as “tart”.

Final thoughts: I was very impressed with the results as I noticed my skin became more hydrated and smoother.  It reinforces the fact that all these benefits put together improves skin hydration, elasticity & roughness.  Mostly importantly, it stopped the itch in my ankle (one of the toughest spots to heal). I would definitely recommend adding it to your diet.  Just understand that it is pricey as I purchased mine for $21.99 for one bottle.

Here is my testimony from the solberry site.

“Hello we have met at the marathon expo. I was the girl who was struggling with a chronic skin disorder. I’ve been trying your solberry purée for about 2 months and I noticed my permanent-like eczema patch on my ankle is going away. I’m been going to phototheraphy for nearly 3 years and I believe the puree may have sped up the healing because it was a tough place to heal and it was always itchy.
A friend of mine is interested in trying out your product and I was about to buy one for her. Will there be another expo or place you’ll be advertising soon?
Anyway thx for helping and recommending the purée. I really love it! I’m glad to have met you! :)”
