Seabuckthorn Seed Oil

First mentioned in the 8th Century in the Tibetan medical classic rGyud Bzi (The Four Books of Pharmacopoeia) attributed to Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), Sea Buckthorn contains an astonishing array of nutrients in its fruit, seed, leaves and even bark. References to medicinal use of Sea Buckthorn were also found in the texts of Ancient Greek scholars Theophrastus and Dioskorid.

CO2 extracted, the golden coloured Sea Buckthorn seed oil contains no additives. It is a rare source of up to 34% linoleic and 32% alpha linolenic acids in an almost perfect 1:1 ratio. It also contains 12 additional fatty acids including docosahexaenoic (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic (EPA). In addition to being an excellent source of natural Vitamin E, Sea Buckthorn seed oil contains carotenoids, valuable phospholipids and trace minerals. Current research indicates that not only does it enhance immune activity and disease resistance, but it also destroys harmful free radicals found in our bodies. The many possible applications include cardiology, dermatology, anti-aging and infant nutrition.
