Traditional Use

Growing wild is better than Organic and a complete daily use health supplement - concentrate juice or capsule - providing vitamins & minerals required by the human body every single day.

Sea buck thorn berry - Latin name Hippophae rhamnoides - Clutches solid rock around raging rivers fed from ancient glaciers, at elevations as high as 14,000 feet. This thorny plant's fruit is a bright orange berry that glows bright - almost fluorescent in this nearly colorless world- and grows wild in the Himalayas.

Genghis Khan powered his army and their horses on sea Buckthorn for stamina and recovery from combat. The botanical name, Hippophae L. is derived from the Greek word "hippo," meaning horse. Sea Buckthorn was used to strengthen ancient Greek horses and restore their coats to a brilliant luster. And women throughout the ages have used sea Buckthorn to protect them from the ravages of the sun and the elements. Founded on tradition and now based on extensive scientific research, sea Buckthorn is one of the biggest functional whole food rediscoveries of the 21st century.

Written in the eighth century AD, the classic Tibetan medical book, Sibu Yidian, devotes thirty chapters to the medicinal and nutritional uses of Sea Buckthorn. And, perhaps most importantly, Sibu Yidian says that Sea Buckthorn atonifies yin and strengthens yang. In modern Western language, that means it creates balance. Sea Buckthorn - written about 1300 years ago - is now perhaps the most comprehensively researched berry in the world.

Other cultures have also found balance from Sea Buckthorn. In India, it is an important part of traditional Ayurveda. It is essential in the Chinese Pharmacopiea. In Mongolia, it has long been seen as a source for indefatigable life energy which is why, it is said, Genghis Khan and his armies drank the juice of the Sea Buckthorn. Modern analysis of the Sea Buckthorn berry reveals an incredible array of nutritive and restorative properties.

Immunity is the ability and process of resistance of the human body against pathogens harmful to our skin and body.

This group of well-coordinated and well-proportioned immune building factors regulates and improves the immune system in different processes and at different levels, restores disturbed immune system, strengthens the body's resistance to diseases, thus effectively preventing diseases and speeding up recovery. The same qualities are key inputs for good looking skin, hair and nails.

Since the later 1970s, scientific studies led to many important discoveries about the adverse effects of free radicals and oxidation on our health. It is found that more than 80 diseases are related to free radicals, the most common ones include stroke, myocardial infarction, infant anemia, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, tumors, cataract, radiation damage, burn, brown spots, wrinkles, aging, arthritis, lung disease, nephritis, hepatitis, etc. Rich in antioxidants

Weight management and weight loss

Taken internally, omega 7 fatty acid signals the body to stop storing fat.* Clinical studies have shown that, not only do users melt away fat, but they also keep it off for longer periods.*

This amazing compound, Omega 7, found in Sea Buckthorn, also helps the body maintain insulin sensitivity and fight off the imbalances that can result in metabolic syndrome.* Insulin sensitivity plays a major role in helping the body convert glucose into energy, rather than storing it as fat. Research shows that omega 7 imitates a hormone in the body that helps regulate systemic metabolic activity.*

The process that causes a nail to rust or even a chopped apple to turn brown is called oxidation. It is the same process that occurs in ones body with each breath one takes. When free radicals attack, the result can vary from a small boil to a mighty cancer or from a slight irritation to asthma or some lifelong allergic disorder. As free radicals hit the tiny drops of LDL (Low density Lipo Proteins) cholesterol in your blood it is oxidized. The cholesterol turns sticky and attaches to rough spots on the walls of arteries causing them to block and cause heart attack if unchecked.

Zinc: A critical role Zinc plays is the synthesis of the nucleic acids RNA & DNA which are essential for cell division, cell repair and cell growth. It is also essential for Bone health, enzyme function, proper immune function and prostaglandin synthesis.

Copper: This helps the body absorb and use iron to synthesise haemoglobin, to carry oxygen in blood. It also plays a role in maintaining the integrity of myelin, the fatty substance that is a constituent of the covering of some nerves. Copper is also needed for taste sensitivity, the maturation of collagen, thr formation of elastin and bone development. Manganese : works with dozens of different enzymes that facilitate processes throughout the body.
