The benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil
Known in Latin as Hippophae Rhamnoides L. Elaeagnaceae, or in modern times as Siberian pineapple, sandthorn or seaberry, Sea Buckthorn is a thorny shrub with small yellow-orange juicy berries. These wondrous berries have been used since ancient times as a valuable source of essential nutrients, and their application in Asian traditions dates back more than a thousand years. The most renowned quality of these berries is for their outstanding nutritional profile; they contain various vitamins, minerals, Omega 7 (along with other fatty acids Omega 3, 6 & 9), polyphenols, flavonoids, plant sterols and over 190 phytonutrients. The leaves of the plant also contain many significant nutrients and bioactive substances such as carotenoids.
As a result, this extraordinary plant now has a number of amazing modern uses. Whilst there are a whole range of benefits the body can receive from all these great nutrients, one of the key uses of these berries if for aiding the mucous membrane. These cover a range of areas in the body from the digestive, respiratory and urogenital tracts as well as the inner surface of the eyes. The main issue many people, particularly women reaching the change of life, face with their mucous membranes is that ageing, stress and other factors can cause them to weaken, leading to dryness in many areas such as the eyes, intimate areas and skin.
