Omega 3 in sea buckthorn

How much omega 3 does sea buckthorn contain? In the formulary it says that it contains omega 3, 6, 9 but I don’t understand it. Can you clarify it for me please.

R/ Sea buckthorn berries are one of the richest fruits in vitamin C, they are also rich in vitamins A, E, B1, K, mucilage, carotenoids, organic acids, minerals (iron and potassium), antioxidants (flavonoids and anthocyanins) and It is a natural source of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. However, omega 7 (palmitoleic) is the predominant one.

Although it is a vegetable source of omega 3 (this is what makes it suitable for vegetarians and vegans), the product is not considered a supplement of omega 3 but of omega 7 (that is why the contribution in other fatty acids or other aforementioned compounds that are part of its chemical composition).Omega 7 is present in sea buckthorn oil in a proportion of 28%, and it is with which most of the clinical studies have been done. This gives them a very beneficial action on the hydration and regeneration of the skin and mucous membranes.
