Omega 7 for Type 2 Diabetes

We all pretty much know about the importance of Omega 3's in our diet. I take fish oil and sprinkle Ground Flax seed in my soup etc. I also take a tablespoon of extra virgin cold pressed olive oil daily.
I have read most of us get too much Omega 6's in our diet and not enough Omega 3's.

Food Sources of Omega 7's in the diet:


Seabuckthorn is undeniably the most potent source of omega-7s on the planet. However, since it can only be found grown in areas such as the Himalayas picking up some sea buckthorn at the local grocery store may not be an option. Luckily enough, omega-7 supplements give you seabuckthorn.
Macadamia nuts despite being grown natively in Australia can be bought almost anywhere in addition to being used as an ingredient to many snacks. Other than sea-buckthorn, macadamia nuts act as an excellent source of palmitoleic acid.
Cheese and dairy may not compared with top omega-7 sources like sea buckthorn and macadamia nuts however it still is a source for natural palmitoleic acid. Cheddar cheese is the most potent variety of cheese with omega-7 fatty acid.
Oils butter and fats are high in palmitoleic acid. Although eating whale blubber may not be a viable option, there is always lard and butter you can count on. Remember omega-7 fats when thinking about fattening up for winter.
Avocado has a rap for being fat. That's okay because it's healthy fat. In addition to many other essential nutrients contained in avocados, there are omega-7 fatty acids. No wonder why it is used in skin care. It must be those omega-7s.

Omega 7's play a distinct role in our overall health and especially for type 2 diabetics:

Omega-7 Fights The Factors Of Metabolic Syndrome

Omega-7 Fights The Factors Of Metabolic Syndrome  
As medically defined, metabolic syndrome, a major contributor to cardiovascular disease risk and type II diabetes, consists of:15-17
  1. Elevated glucose and insulin resistance.
  2. Lipid disturbances (high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol).
  3. High blood pressure.
  4. Central obesity (“apple shape”).
  5. Chronic inflammation.
Even though chronic inflammation is not technically a criterion for metabolic syndrome, it is widely recognized as a fifth major pathological contributor to the condition.


There are several supplements out there all claiming to be the best. Prices vary from around $30 ish for a month supply to upwards of $70 minus some possible promo codes. Dr. Mark Stengler in hiws book entitled, "Natural Healing Encyclopedia" claims to have the #1 top Omega 7 supplement that is marketed as PROVICOR. Per his book it is the most comprehensive supplement out there for Omega 7 fatty acids with none of the drawbacks to macadamia nuts which apparently contain higher levels of palmitic acid , an unhealthy saturated fat.

Provicor is his groundbreaking heat support formula of Omega 7s all in one exclusive formula you won't find anywhere else. It plays a positive role in healthy LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, CRP levels and supercharges your heart's energy all at the same time.

Product at the time the book was published sells for $69.95 with a 20% discount if your are a Health Revelations subscriber.

THERE ARE OTHER SOURCES that I use for supplements and can recommend them. Swanson Health products has a great reputation and I have used their supplements with good results and confidence over the years. As of the date of this blog post, two offers come to mind:

  • $6.89 for 30 day supply of Omega 7s oil from sea Buckthorn oil / 450 mg of Omega 3s, 6s, 7s, and 9s.
  • $14.99 for 30 day supply of Swanson EFA's 450 mg / 30 soft gels
  • Several other Omega 7s formulas listed

I take a LOT of supplements now and it is doubtful that more are in the budget. I do eat nuts, prefer real butter to any sort of margarine or substitute, whole milk free of growth hormones and will start adding avocado to my meal plan.

On a side note, my BG levels have dropped dramatically since avoiding all grains and cereals during the day. I simply do NOT have the after breakfast spikes I have lived with after breakfast and do not have the urgent feeling of needing something to EAT RIGHT NOW, when my BG falls off the elevation cliff of eating cereal for breakfast. Even when my blood sugar reading is 71 during the day like it was yesterday around noon time, I did NOT feel dizzy, or disoriented, or shaky or feel as though I was about to pass out.

God Bless,
