Known as the ""Holy Fruit of the Himalayas,"" sea buckthorn has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Sea buckthorn grows high in the Himalayan region and has been used in Asia over the centuries as an herbal medicine to relieve cough, aid digestion, invigorate blood circulation, and alleviate pain.
Sea buckthorn is a powerful source of antioxidants and rare fatty acids, thanks to its very high vitamin C, carotenoid, and phenolic content. As a result of the powerful antioxidant levels, its ability to protect against aging of the skin and the effects of environmental pollution has been noted.
The beneficial uses of this berry were recognized by ancient civilizations. The Greeks were the first to discover the benefits of the Sea Buckthorn berries 1,200 years ago. The berries are mentioned in Chinese and Tibetan medical texts from around 1,000 years ago.
Sea buckthorn's berries contain more than 100 different kinds of nutrients and bio-active substances including vitamins, fatty acids and free amino acids. Recent scientific studies indicate that sea buckthorn supports the immune system and may help protect the liver.
Today, over one hundred and twenty specific studies on sea buckthorn and countless studies on the biological properties found in the plant have shown that this small berry promotes good health. Sea buckthorn has been called the superfruit, and given its nutritional profile, it is no wonder. This fruit has a high abundance of some of the rarest and most powerful antioxidants in the world. Not only that, but it is the only plant known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9.
Sea buckthorn contains more than 190 biologically active compounds. Included in these 190 nutrients are the following:
