Sea Buckthorn fruit, seeds and leaves all have components that assist with cell regeneration, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.  

Every part of the plant can be used including the juice, fruit pulp (powder) seeds, leaves, bark and oils from the seeds and pulp.

Note:   We have been researching all aspects of Sea Buckthorn for many years and although there are no known health risks that we have read in any clinical studies to date, Sea Buckthorn increases blood flow in the body, so we encourage you as a precaution to pause your daily 1-2 oz. shot of the juice and/or reduce the daily amount of berries you use in your smoothies, etc. two weeks prior to any surgeries or if you are pregnant.  Check with your Dr. before adding Sea Buckthorn to your health toolkit.

Skin Health
With high concentration of Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Sea Buckthorn applied topically may improve the skins ability to smooth wrinkles, diminish hyper-pigmentation, and has been used to treat acne. Studies support claims in helping skin retain moisture, decrease hyper-pigmentation.  Vitamin C is a known anti-oxidant and assists with the youthfulness of skin by collagen maintenance and creation, smoothing the complexion and reducing brown spots.  Vitamin E helps heal scars and diminish stretch marks plus reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles, smooth rough patches of skin and improve overall skin health.   (Anti-aging & cell regeneration) - Sea buckthorn has been used to treat skin issues including burns, bed sores, and other conditions.  Studies suggest that the use of this berry as a supplement has boosted skin health, allowing your body's immune system to attack wounds and scars.

Seed oil is extracted from the seed of the plant, which contains a different nutritional makeup from the berry’s fruit oil. These berries are uniquely saturated with vitamins and amino acids, so much so that different components of the berry can be applied for specific maladies. The berry is traditionally known for its benefits to the skin, digestive tract, and urinary tract. The seed oil has  benefits as a dietary supplement for enhancing the immunity system and supporting cardiovascular, brain and liver health.

Flavonoids & oils
Sea buckthorn has been shown to have a potent antioxidant activity, mainly atributed to its flavonoids and vitamin C content. Both the flavonoids and the oils from sea buckthorn have several potential applications. There are five areas of research that have been focal points for their use: as an aid to patients undergoing cancer therapy; a long-term therapy for reduction of cardiovascular risk factors; treatment of gastrointestinal ulcers; internal and topical therapy for a variety of skin disorders; and as a liver protective agent (for chemical toxins) and a remedy for liver cirrhosis.

Carotenoids

Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Alpha-Carotene, Trans-Beta Carotene Cis-Beta Carotene, Lycopene.  Carotenoids of Sea buckthorn are powerful antioxidants that can prevent cellular damage by neutralizing free radicals.  Strong antioxidant activity that protects red blood cells (erythrocyte membranes) against peroxidation and cell aging.

Phytosterols and Polyphenols

Phytosterols and Polyphenols are plant sterols that occur naturally in Sea Buckthorn.  Studies have shown that plant sterols mimic cholesterol in the small intestine and partly block cholesterol absorption.  Therefore, regular consumption of foods containing plant sterols results in the lowering of LDL-cholesterol levels, while having no detrimental effect on HDL-cholesterol levels (often referred to as good cholesterol).  This would benefit those who want to lower their blood cholesterol levels, i.e., especially those who have moderate to high blood cholesterol.

Phenois are effective against oxidation, tumorigenesis (formation or production of tumours) and radiation.  Check with your Dr. before adding Sea Buckthorn to your health toolkit.
