NOW® Omega-7 is a molecularly distilled fish oil with 26% Palmitoleic Acid, an Omega-7 fatty acid (FA) that is naturally found in a variety of plant seeds such as macadamia nuts and sea buckthorn. It is also normally found in the skin, liver, and mucous membranes. Palmitoleic Acid is actively being studied for its role in glucose and liver fatty acid metabolism, as well as for its effects on pancreatic beta cell function. Its mechanism of action is different from that of omega-3 FA and it has been suggested that dietary Omega-7 may help to maintain the proper regulation of internally synthesized palmitoleic acid for fatty acid balance.*
