From Siberia With Health

Milk thistle is highly valued in folk medicine: it is an important source of silymarin, a flavonoid capable of healing damage in the liver and gallbladder. A special product is also made from milk thistle fruits – vegetable oil. It is considered a very beneficial food supplement.

The component (Silymarin) includes:

  • Silybin (Silybinin), of which silymarin consists of 50-70% and, accordingly, 39-56% “milk thistle extract”.
  • Isosilibin, which occupies about 5% of silymarin.
  • Silychristine and Isosilychristine – about 20% silymarin.
  • Silidianin – about 10% silymarin.
  • Taxifolin (quercetin conjugate, known as dihydroquercetin), usually in almost undetectable levels.

Since silybin is the main active component of this mixture of flavonoids, biological additives from milk thistle are evaluated by the content of silymarin or silybin.

The highest concentration of silymarin (silybin) in various preparations is in extracts of 50-70%, and in biological additives (without extract) - about 20-40%.

Milk thistle oil contains about 0,13 – 0,34 oz/lb of silymarin. Thus, a teaspoon of milk thistle oil contains 0,01 lb of oil and 0,0001 lb of silymarin when using oil with the highest content of this substance.

The main difference between Omega-7 and Omega-9 is that they belong to different groups of fatty acids. Omega-9 is a representative of monounsaturated acids, and Omega-7 refers to unsaturated fatty acids.

In addition, these omega acids are found in various products:

  • The main component of Omega-7 is palmitoleic acid. Omega-7 can be found in fish, sea buckthorn berry oil, or macadamia nuts.
  • Omega-9 is found in olive oil, nuts, seeds and avocados, and can also be produced in the body. Its deficiency is relatively rare.

The difference between Omega-9 and Omega-7 also lies in their chemical structure and the effects they have on the human body.

How to properly consume Omega 7 and Omega 9?

The best way to maintain the right balance of Omega-7 and Omega9 intake is, first of all, to adhere to a general healthy diet that includes either fish or a small amount of additional vegetable oil per day, specifically sea buckthorn that contains not only high dose of Omega 7, but combination of all 4 omegas – 3-6-7 and 9!
