Brief history

Due to the valuable qualities, the sea buckthorn is widely used in folk medicine in Asia already many thousands of years ago. The sea buckthorn is widely studied and applied also in Russia.

The tractates of Tibet monks are among the most ancient written sources where the sea buckthorn is mentioned. However the most active period in recognition of the sea buckthorn fruits were approximately 200 years A.C. during the military expedition of Alexander the Great. The exhausted warriors observed that horses ate fruit similar to berries from several unknown trees. The warriors also tried them. In several days both the warriors and horses regained strength. Since then, this plant has been called hippophae in Latin. When translated, it means "the bright horse". Alexander the Great brought the trees to Europe. The sea buckthorn is widespread in Asia, Europe and Russia and recently was also found in Canada.

Chingishan, the emperor of Mongolia, who created one of the largest empires in the 13th century, relied on 3 headstones: a well-organized army, strong discipline and the sea buckthorn.

Strong antioxidant

Aging and illnesses related thereto, such as heart diseases and cancer, are connected with anti-oxidation caused by excessive amount of reactive molecules. Antioxidants are substances decreasing the oxidation. A healthy person is endowed with a strong oxidative system - the organism itself is programmed to neutralize and demolish the hazardous substances. However, with years it becomes weaker; it is also provoked by enforced and ongoing stress, addictions, use of stimulating substances, unreasonable sunbathing, environmental pollution, illnesses, lasting inflammations, traumas, operations, starvation, low-quality food, etc. The hazardous impact of free radicals touches many organs, but most rapidly - the heart and the vascular system. It causes inspissations of cholesterol, decreasing of elasticity of blood-vessels, hypertension, ischemia, and a heart attack can result as a consequence. Next suffer the skin, the eyes, the immune system and connective tissues.

Antioxidants are the most powerful opponents to cell destroying free radicals, but the sea buckthorn is one of the strongest known antioxidants, because it has plenty of natural antioxidants - vitamins C, E, A, beta carotene, selenium, polyphenol - flavonoid, etc.!

Impact on health

Vitamin A and carotenoids

Vitamin A is a group of antioxidant compounds that play an important role in vision, bone growth and health of the immune system. Vitamin A also helps the overall health of eyes, mucous membranes and helps skin be the effective barriers against bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of inflammations, respiratory problems and other infectious diseases. Seabuckthorn has higher concentration of Vitamin A than in any other source; it has 3 times more Vitamin A than in carrots. Seabuckthorn contains eight different types of carotenoids. The most active is ß (beta) carotene, from which retinol forms Vitamin A. Studies in recent years have proven the ability of carotenoids to combat the functioning of carcinogenic substances responsible for the formation of malignant tumours.
