Sea buckthorn Berry (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) has been found to be an extremely rich source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, flavonoids, carotenoids, and essential fatty acids! Over the centuries sea buckthorn oil has been used as a folk remedy and food source by many Asian cultures. This amazing berry has numerous reported medicinal uses*. It has been used as a healing remedy for many ulcerative and inflammation-related disorders such as canker sores, sore throat, peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and inflammation of the cervix. Russian cosmonauts have even taken the oil while in orbit.
Here is Why the Sea Buckthorn Berry is so Special:
- Vitamins A, C, E and K
- Alpha, Beta, Gama, and Delta Tocopherol
- High in Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium
- 300 mg's of Vitamin C per 100 g of berries
- More Vitamin C by weight than Oranges
- High natural content of Vitamin E
- Rich Source of Omega 3, 6, 7 and, 9 Fatty Acids
- More Beta-Carotene than Carrots
- Rich in Flavonoids (Same types as Gingko Biloba)
In literature* Sea buckthorn has been shown to have a potent antioxidant activity, mainly attributed to its flavonoids and vitamin C content (1). Both the flavonoids and the oils from sea buckthorn have several potential applications (2). 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.
Cancer therapy (internal use): Most of the work done in this area has been with laboratory animals. A group in India headed by HC Goel (at the Department of Radiation Biology, Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences, in Delhi) has published several reports on the potential of a hippophae extract (an alcohol extract, which would mainly contain the flavonoids) to protect the bone marrow from damage due to radiation; his group also showed that the extract may help faster recovery of bone marrow cells (3). In China, a study was done to demonstrate faster recovery of the hemopoietic system after high dose chemotherapy (with 5-FU) in mice fed the sea buckthorn oil (4). The seed oil has been found to enhance non-specific immunity and to provide anti-tumor effects in preliminary laboratory studies (5, 6).
Cardiovascular diseases (internal use) In a double-blind clinical trial conducted in China (7), 128 patients with ischemic heart disease were given total flavonoids of sea buckthorn at 10 mg each time, three times daily, for 6 weeks. The patients had a decrease in cholesterol level and improved cardiac function; also they had less angina than those receiving the control drug. No harmful effect of sea buckthorn flavonoids was noted in renal functions or hepatic functions. The mechanism of action may include reduced stress of cardiac muscle tissue by regulation of inflammatory mediators (8). In a laboratory animal study, the flavonoids of sea buckthorn were shown to reduce the production of pathogenic thromboses (9). Some simple formulas based on sea buckthorn have been developed recently for treating cardiac disorders. For example, there is a liquid preparation of sea buckthorn flavonoids with carthamus (safflower) and licorice, calledAi Xin Bao(from the Shanxi Ai Xin Biological Technology Development Center), which is intended for use in treatment of coronary heart disease and sequelae of heart attack and stroke, through improving blood circulation and restoring cardiac function.
Gastric ulcers (internal use) Sea buckthorn is traditionally used in the treatment of gastric ulcers, and laboratory studies confirm the efficacy of the seed oil for this application (10, 11). Its functions may be to normalize output of gastric acid and reduce inflammation by controlling pro-inflammatory mediators.
Liver cirrhosis (internal use): A clinical trial demonstrated that sea buckthorn extracts helped normalize liver enzymes, serum bile acids, and immune system markers involved in liver inflammation and degeneration (12). In addition, sea buckthorn oil protects the liver from damaging effects of toxic chemicals, as revealed in laboratory studies (13).
Skin (external use): An ingredient of the oil, palmitoleic acid, is a component of skin. It is considered a valuable topical agent in treating burns and healing wounds. This fatty acid can also nourish the skin when taken orally if adequate quantities of sea buckthorn or its oil are consumed; this is a useful method for treating systemic skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis (14). The only other major plant source of palmitoleic acid is macadamia nuts; the oil is used to nourish the skin. Sea buckthorn oil is already widely used alone or in various preparations topically applied for burns, scalds, ulcerations, and infections. It is an ingredient in sun-block. hippophae oil has UV-blocking activity as well as emollient properties-and it is an aid in promoting regeneration of tissues (15). The fruit may also be used for benefiting the hair: the name hippophae, means shiny horse, and refers to the good coat developed by horses feeding off the plant.

Apply oil directly to desired area (skin) as needed. Best used upon wakening and before bed.
Sea Buckthorn oil is used superficially to assist in healing
skin injuries, burns, wounds, eczema, lesions, sun damaged skin, and abrasions.
Current studies are being performed on its ability to combat wrinkles, acute dryness
and other symptoms of prematurely aged skin.
Skin Care – Apply oil liberally to dry clean skin and leave for at least 30 minutes. If necessary wipe off the excess. For mature or sun damaged skin, apply in the evening, before bed and leave overnight. Because of sea buckthorn’s high carotenoid levels, our oil extract has rich amber color.
Note: Due to sea buckthorns high content of carotenoids the oil sometimes may cause a mild tingling sensation, for a few moments after the administration. This is not an allergic reaction and may not occur at all. For very sensitive skin dilute sea buckthorn oil with 1- 2 drops of olive or almond oil.
To aid in healing a sunburn and/or reverse the potential negative effects of solar radiation, apply to the affected areas as soon after exposure to the sun as possible. Repeat the application in 2, 8 and 24 hours. To promote skin recovery and avoid the skin aging effects from the sun - continue treatments until the inflammation (redness) is no longer visible.
Note: Due to the high content of carotenoids, sea buckthorn oil may increase the skin's sensitivity to sun exposure for some skin types (Fitzpatrick types I-II). Accordingly, we do not recommend applying it if you are intending to spend a prolonged period under direct sunlight. At the same time, when applied after sun exposure, sea buckthorn oil helps to reverse the negative effects of solar radiation, reduce skin irritation (sunburn) and inflammation, combat skin aging, and reduce the severity of sunburns.
