About Sea Buckthorn
Many things are found in mother nature that provide excellent life giving nutrients, but something like sea buckthorn which is packed with so many varieties of nourishing and nurturing elements, is nothing short of a miracle. It is becoming one of the brightest stars in pharmaceutical and supplement industries with at least 190 nutrients including all known vitamins.
More than 2 billion years old, sea buckthorn is one of the earliest inhabitants on earth. The fine qualities are the results of its ability to withstand the changes and upheavals on this planet. Its botanical name, Hippohgae rhamnoides L, came from an ancient Greek legend: After a war, warriors let their sick and wounded horses loose. But they came back bursting with energy and health. It was traced to tree shrubs on which the horses fed upon and the trees began to be known as "trees that make horses shining." The effective use is recorded in history in ancient China and Central Asia in which it is said to have maintained excellent health and vigor of both men and horses. In modern times it goes to space as a special food, keeping astronauts well adapted to a complex and hectic space environment.
Sea buckthorn oil stands out in many medical traditions as a tonic including Chinese, Tibetan, Mongolian medicines, in which it was described as "God Sent Medicine," "liquid gold," "life oil," etc. Chinese pharmacopeia classifies sea buckthorn oils as both food and medicine.
Cardiotonic, stomachic, dermatropic, antioxidant, anti-radiation, anti-constipation, healthy cholesterol maintaining, blood vessel softening, blood fat reducing, pro-blood circulation and pro-natural healing, sea buckthorn oil has an extensive range of uses both internal and external on cellular levels. It has a wide application in cerebral-cardiovascular, liver, gastrointestinal, respiratory, urinary, gynecological, immunological, dermatological health, etc., and it is extremely good for sub-health conditions. Daily use may help keep you young and healthy inside and out.
Sea Buckthorn Frequently Asked Questions
What is sea buckthorn?
The seabuckthorns (Hippophae L.) are deciduous shrubs in the genus Hippophae, family Elaeagnaceae. It is also referred to as "sea buckthorn", seabuckthorn, sandthorn, seaberry, "sacred fruit", or " liquid gold" when referring to its oil and juice).
It is by far the most widespread of the species in the genus, with a range extending from the Atlantic coasts of Europe right across to northwestern China. The English name of seabuckthorn may have to do with the fact that in Western Europe, it is largely confined to sea coasts where salt spray off the sea prevents other larger plants from out-competing it, but in central Asia it is more widespread in dry semi-desert sites where other plants cannot survive the dry conditions. In central Europe and Asia it also occurs as a subalpine shrub above tree line mountains, and other sunny areas such as river banks. They are tolerant of salt in the air and soil, but demand full sunlight for good growth and do not tolerate shady conditions near larger trees. They typically occur in dry, sandy areas and can thrive in such hard oil as arsenic sands where few other plants can even survive.
More than 90 percent or about 1.5 million hectares of the world's sea buckthorn wild forest or plantations can be found in Tibet, China where the plant is utilized for soil and water conservation purposes, including prevention of oil erosion, sand drift and holding of precious water.
While you read about the wonderfully wide variety of health nutrients it provides to humans, please be aware that it also has a strong ability of fixing nitrogen by its roots, for use of other inhabitants of Mother earth.
What is the difference between sea buckthorn berry oil and the sea buckthorn seed oil?
As research on seabuckthorn intensifies, more and more nutrients and health factors will be found. So far more that 200 of them have been identified and the composition ratio is very similar to their human body with near 1:1 ratio between Omega 3 and Omega 6. It is also reported that seabuckthorn contains all known vitamins beside fatty acids, carotenoids, phospholipids, minerals, both micro and macro. These are distributed in its seed, fruits, leaves and flowers in different proportions and quantity.
Here is a summary comparison of the average ingredients between fruit oil and seed oil:
||Percentage by weight
||Antioxidant, etc |
||234-313 iu/100g |
||Vision, etc |
||2755-5511 iu/100g |
||For calcium and phosphor absorption and storage, etc |
||Maintaining metabolism |
||Delay the aging process |
||Peptic and duotenal ulcer, etc. |
||Important fatty acid in both human & animals |
|Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7)
||Important ingredient for healthy skin and cell membrane |
||Important fatty acid in both human & animals |
|Oleic Acid (Omega 9)

|Linoleic Acid (Omega 6)
||Polyunsaturated fatty acid essential for both humans and animals, |
|Linolenic Acid (Omega 3)
||Polyunsaturated fatty acid important but often lacking in both humans and animals |
The above list shows only those with the highest percentages, and many others are not listed. This does not mean that they are not significant since some of them play very important role even when little is present. What is even more important is the synergetic effects of them all.
Which sea buckthorn product is the best for me?
While no adverse effect is found with seabuckthorn oils and rich literature exist of its effective use in many medical traditions, the detailed biological functions of its ingredients have not been fully explored and understood. Seabuck Wonders may expect many more uses it in the near future in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The berry oil is more characterized with high content of the rare Omega 7 and if you have a serious cell and membrane issues and peptic and duodenal concerns, you might like to go with the berry oil. If you want a powerful antioxidant and something for anti-radiation, regeneration of cells, you may choose the seed oil which has high content of Omega 3. But if you want something for daily health maintenance, or are in a sub-health condition, you might like to use their blend product, a formulation with both berry and seed oils providing a much wider spectrum of health benefiting factors.
Can my kids take sea buckthorn?
As it is said that no adverse effect of the oil has been found, they do not think why not. In China it is listed both as food and medicine. If you are in doubt or your kid is in certain conditions and taking medication, please consult your health professional.

There, drastic topographical changes during the last two millions years, high altitude, strong ultraviolet radiation, severe cold, scorching heat, dry and barren soil, etc, have equipped sea buckthorn with extraordinary bio-defense mechanism with so much life-giving nutrients and health factors. The local green environment makes their sea buckthorn oils amazingly pure. Its essential amino acids and Vitamin E content are higher than other varieties.
