To call them ingredients … is inadequate
Sea buckthorn is rich in Omega3, Omega6,
Omega9 and Omega7 fatty acids, the last being very rare,
and is the richest vegetable source of it.
It also has other precious substances such
as carotenoids, tocopherols, flavonoids and vitamin C.
Sea buckthorn is a plant with a very particular history and with uses – it seems – very interesting from a nutritional point of view. Extremely resistant, sea buckthorn was used in ancient times as an energy food. It is found in vast areas of the world, from Europe to China. Very resistant, it prefers desert areas hostile to other plants.
Seaberry, a super-vitamin concentrate
The fruits of the sea buckthorn were used in ancient civilisations as laxatives, while the leaves were used to cure a number of skin ailments and respiratory problems. More pragmatically and effectively, today sea buckthorn is used for its great quantity of vitamin C, useful for phyto-therapeutic purposes. Sea buckthorn contains twenty times more vitamin C than an orange. It stimulates the immune system, acting on both white and red globules. It’s, therefore, recommended to be taken during convalescence. Finally, for topical use, oil of sea buckthorn is used as an ointment for tired skin.
