Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) is native to Europe and Asia, and it is most widely naturally growing bush thorn tree, with berries that have been used as food for centuries in Europe, Asia, North America and Canada.
Seabuckthorn’s nutrient rich, orange color berries cluster on thorny branches like brilliant orange jewels.. The fruits have a distinctive sour taste and a unique aroma reminiscent of pineapple. Indeed, in Belarus state and Russia, the fruit juice is known as Russian pineapple.

Even though the berries are too acidic to be eaten fresh, they make excellent juice, jellies, marmalades, sauces, and liqueurs. The berry juice may be used by itself, or blended with other fresh juices and it is a powerful house of nutrients, especially vitamin C and A.
Having their genesis in the unforgiving landscapes of Siberia and Mongolia, the clear golden oil from the seed and the ruby red oil from the flesh of the berry are an unparalleled source of important phytonutrients, having a long history of use in nutrition and skincare.

China, Russia, Mongolia and Canada are the largest producers of Sea Buckthorn commodities. The main product is oil for medical and cosmetic purposes, but 50 different foods are also available

 

Did you know that Seabuckthorn Oil? …
 
  • The legend of Seabuckthorn - it is believed that in 12 BC, the ancient Greeks found that after a war, the deserted wounded horses survived miraculously after wandering in a jungle for a long time and even became stronger with glittering fur. The jungle was Seabuckthorn Jungle, hence the fruit has the botanical name ‘Hippophae Rhamnoides’ or shiny horse. Another legend says that ancient Greeks used the Seabuckthorn as a diet for race horses.

 

  • It is said that a famous Tibetan doctor first explored the nutritional value of Seabuckthorn in the 8th century. For many centuries, the knowledge of the miraculous effects of Seabuckthorn was mastered by the Tibetans and Mongolians.

 

  • Back in the12th century, Genghis Khan, the Mongol conqueror touted the Seabuckthorn fruit as an invigorating energizer and even ordered his armies to eat it, to improve stamina and prevent altitude sickness

 

  • In 1988 China designated its Sea Buckthorn sports drinks “Shawikang” and “Jianibao” as the official beverages for its athletes at the Seoul Olympic games in

 

  • The Russians are known of making use of the Seabuckthorn berry fruit health- related properties after the World War II. Thus Russian cosmonauts were supplied with Sea Buckthorn beverages throughout the time, to enhance their health and resistance to stress; therefore it has been claimed that Sea Buckthorn was the first fruit juice in space! Also Russian cosmonauts used a cream made from Seabuckthorn on the spaceship Mir to protect them from cosmic radiation and to serve as an oxygen supplement.

Unique plant source of Omega-3, -6, -7 and -9

Sea buckthorn seed and pulp oils are considered the most valuable components of the berries comprising a unique fatty acid composition, fat-soluble vitamins and plant sterols.
Furthermore, the fruit pulp oil has a remarkably high content of Omega essential fatty acids.
The rich red oil from the berry pulp is predominantly monounsaturated with unsaturated fatty acids and lower concentrations of polyunsaturated acids.
Nearly every biologic function is somehow interconnected with the delicate balance between the essential fatty acids such as Omega-6 and Omega-3. Seabuckthorn seed oil oil has an amazingly high concentration of the essential omega’s fatty acids, Omega -3, Omega -6, and Omega 9, making it a great pure vegetarian source of omegas, in place of fish oil where purity and toxicity are always a point to consider.
Moreover, the most important fatty acid in the composition of Seabuckthorn fruit oil is Omega -7 (palmitoleic acid), a valuable fatty acid, with a very rare occurrence in nature (found only in dairy products, macadamia nuts oil and seabuckthorn oil).

This rare fatty acid, Omega -7, is a component of skin tissues, mucous membranes inside the organs and is known to support cell, tissue and wound healing. Omega-7 provides the building blocks for the enzymes involved in fat metabolism, important especially in weight loss and cholesterol control.

Below a table with the composition in essential Omega’s fatty acids, comparing seabuckthorn oil with other common vegetable edible oils:

Rich in natural antioxidants and powerful nutrients, it vastly improves your overall bodily health, from the cardiovascular to the nervous systems, from improving skin condition to nourishing organ tissues such as mucous membranes.
 

Seabuckthorm is known to being used for traditional purposes for centuries (used for healing and rejuvenation), and in modern centuries, the scientific research conducted confirmed numerous beneficial characteristics of Seabuckthorn berries.
 

There is no doubt that the future holds great promise for Seabuckthorn fruit.
 

 

The Seabuckthorn Beauty Secret

 

 

Promotes Healthy Skin

Loaded with Omega fatty acids that are absolutely essential to healthy skin, strong, smooth nails, and lustrous hair, Seabuckthorn oil is used primarily to promote a natural external glow.
 

It is generally accepted in the cosmetic industry that Seabuckthorn oils have unique anti-aging properties and stimulate skin tissues regeneration. Biological studies suggest that the restorative action of the Sea Buckthorn oil may be in part due to its high content of essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols and phytosterols, which are all important for the maintenance of a healthy skin. For example, Omega 3 and Omega 6 comprise 30% of the skin’s lipids.
 

Research indicates that products containing Sea Buckthorn appear to promote cell tissue regeneration, thus aiding in the healing of wounds, and restoring skin tissue and that can actually improve metabolism and

retard skin maturation, Seabuckthorn's high levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin E are the perfect free radical scavenger for your skin. Seabuckthorn actually acts like a skin conditioner, by nourishing and retaining young, healthy cells while softening scar tissue.

 

Powerful Antioxidant & Anti-Radiation & Immunity Support

Current research indicates that not only does Seabuckthorn enhance immune activity and disease resistance, but it also destroys harmful free radicals found in our bodies. The supply of strong antioxidants and other bioactive factors may provide also essential protection against toxic factors including UV’s rays, radiation and chemo side-effect.
 

Smoking, drinking alcohol, exposure to environmental pollutants, and also exposure to ultraviolet light or nuclear radiation can all trigger the production of "free radicals" on the skin's surface, or inside the body. Vitamins have antioxidant properties and can form a natural line of defense against free radicals or they "catch" free radicals and neutralize them. These anti-oxidant vitamins, all present in Sea-Buckthorn oil, are vitamin A (derived from -carotene), vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and vitamin E (-tocopherol).

 

 

 

Cardiovascular and Liver Health

It is well known the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids in reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke and its role in liver function. Seabuckthorn seed oil contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 in a perfect 1:1 ratio. The relationship of equivalence between these types of Omegas is critical because they self-check each other in a delicate balance to regulate thousands of metabolic functions through prostaglandin pathways, directly implicated in many inflammatory responses, liver processes, also strengthening blood vessels, cell walls and circulation.

 

 

 

 

Multivitamin Tonic

Seabuckthorn pulp has a high content of nutrients among fruit and vegetable. Large quantity of vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids content can increase the oxygen in brain cell, improve concentration, elevate sleep quality and memory, thus keep nervous system operating normally. Know as a powerful cocktail of nutrients, Seabuckthorn oil can give a boost to body metabolism when combined with an active lifestyle.
 

For overall body resistance, improved vitality and long term wellbeing, Seabuckthorn Oil is the perfect answer in terms of high quality daily potent supplementation.

 

 

Nutritional Support for Mucous Membranes

 

In the Chinese tradition, there is a long history of treating digestive system problems (including stomach, duodenal ulcer, and gastritis in digestion by using Seabuckthorn berry oil.

Healthy mucous membranes are important to body organs overall health. They are the lubricated thin layer of tissue inside cavities of the hollow organs. They cover the digestive, respiratory and uro-genital tracts and the inner surface of your eyes The membranes are responsible to secrete fluids (mucus) that lubricate and moisten the tissues.

Pathogens, external toxins, and allergens find their way into the body through these membranes, which can lead to multiple inflammatory conditions.

With the constant stress of genetic deficiencies, disease, aging, medical treatment side effects, and environmental factors, such as air and water pollutants, many people suffer from weakened and irritated membranes.

 

The common problems are digestive and bowel disorders, respiratory an uro-genital infections. One great way to strengthen the health of your body’s mucous membranes naturally and without unwanted side effects is to supplement with Omega-7 fatty acids (see Nutritional Value Seabuckthorn Oil) while Seabuckthorn oil is the most potent, safe, and pure vegetarian source of Omega -7.
