WHAT IS SEA BUCKTHORN?
With an impressive collection of omega fatty acids: omegas 3, 6, 9 and rare omega 7, more vitamin C than an orange and high amounts of nutrients, there are plenty of sea buckthorn benefits for your body.
Sea buckthorn has long been used in traditional medicine to slow down aging, promote heart health, and improve digestion.
The Ancient Greeks recognised its anti-aging and beautifying properties, and even used it to keep the coats of their race horses shiny.
The use of Sea Buckthorn was first documented by the notorious warlord Genghis Khan, who noticed the positive effect it had on his horses. He noted that after grazing on this plant their coats became particularly shiny.
