Sea buckthorn berries are a nutritionally powerful fruit that can be enjoyed in a variety of forms all available from Everspring Farms.
So much has been written about the health benefits of sea buckthorn berries in literature from Asia and Eastern Europe that it is hard to believe that we, in North America, have very little awareness of one of the most nutritionally complete fruits on Earth. According to historical records, China was the first country to use sea buckthorn berries as a drug. In 1977, this plant was formally listed in the Chinese pharmacopeia. Sea buckthorn berries contain biologically active substances with pharmacological effects on the cardiovascular and immune system, as well as anti-senility, anti-inflammation and anti-radiation effects.
It's the oil in sea buckthorn berries that puts this antioxidant juice in a class by itself as a source of high levels of essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9.
