Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides)
Even though the history of sea buckthorn and its great medicinal and
nutritional value can be traced back many centuries in Europe and Asia, it has only recently come to the
attention of North Americans. The plant was fed to horses in ancient Greece, where it was found to improve
their health and impart a gloss to their coat. The latter property explains the Latin name of this unique
plant: Hippophae Rhamnoides -- "shiny horse".
Traditionally used to stimulate digestion, sea buckthorn
provides nutritional support for the circulatory system over longer use, due to the presence of sea buckthorn
flavonoids. The berries have proven to be among the most nutritious fruits known.
Sea buckthorn is being increasingly used in making fruit
juices, especially when mixed with other fruits, because of its reputed health benefits. The freshly pressed juice
is used in the treatment of colds and exhaustion. Russian cosmonauts have used its oil for protection against
radiation burns in space.
