Seabuckthorn

Seabuckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides) is a super fruit full of all the Omegas – 3, 6, 9 and the rare 7, as well as a host of antioxidants and other healing nutrients. It has been used to treat psoriasis, rosacea and make skin glow, boost immunity, slow aging, and lower cholesterol, but it also has numerous other qualities that make it a superior source of vitamins and minerals we all need.

The fruit grows primarily high in the Himalayan Mountains which makes it particularly hearty. It is called “Holy Fruit’ among the locals there. It is here, under the conditions of high altitude, exposure to extremely strong ultra violet radiation due to its proximity to the sun, and reflected light from heavy snows, severe cold, scorching heat, and dry, ‘barren’ soil, that this plant becomes a ‘super’ food. It is extremely life-giving and enhances both health and beauty.

History

Strong Antioxidant

Seabuckthorn has been known for thousands of years as one of nature’s most incredible medical plants. This tiny yellowish-orange berry is smaller than a blueberry but packs ten times the amount of vitamin C than an orange! Seabuckthorn has been cherished for centuries for their truly exceptional healing, nutritive and therapeutic qualities. Seabuckthorn oil is abundant in vitamins, antioxidants, and other healing compounds that have no match for their content of carotenoids, tocopherols, as well as other vitally important healing and health-promoting vitamins, fatty acids, and micro-elements. This magical fruit contains more linoleic acid than any other oil. Aging is related to oxidation caused by excessive amounts of reactive molecules. Antioxidants are the most powerful opponents to cell destroying free radicals. Sea buckthorn is one of the strongest known antioxidants.

Aging and illnesses such as heart disease and cancer, are connected with oxidation caused by an excessive amount of reactive molecules. Antioxidants are substances that decrease the oxidation process. Over time, our natural oxidative system becomes weaker; it is also provoked by enforced and ongoing stress, addictions, use of stimulating substances, sunbathing, environmental pollution, illnesses, lasting inflammations, traumas, operations, starvation, low-quality food, etc. Free radicals can have a hazardous impact on many organs, but most rapidly, the heart and the vascular system, as well as the eyes, the immune system and connective tissues.

Antioxidants are the most powerful opponents to cell destroying free radicals and the seabuckthorn is one of the strongest known antioxidants, because it has a high concentration of essential vitamins such as  vitamins C, E, A, beta carotene, selenium, polyphenol – flavonoid, etc.

Vitamin Concentration

Vitamins in seabuckthorn have a higher concentration than in other plants. For example, vitamin A is 3 times more than in carrots, vitamin C is 10 times more than in oranges, and vitamin E is 4 times more than in the sunflower seeds.
