More about Sea Buckthorn:
Sea Buckthorn, know in world as the miracle berry. What makes sea buckthorn a superfood?
one of the most nutritious and vitamin-rich foods in the world and offering benefits both internally and externally, sea buckthorn is quickly becoming as popular as acai berry and pomegranate.
This tiny orange berry is approximately one third of the size of a blueberry, yet packs 12 times the amount of vitamin C as an orange! With high amounts of protein, fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals (at least 190 bioactive compounds )
This revolutionary fruit was first documented in a Tibetan book of healing arts called Sibu Yi Dian. It was even used by Genghis Khan to power his army and their horses for stamina and recovery from combat. It contains more than 190 nutrients and organic substances which are beneficial to the human body in several forms.
Sea buckthorn berry endures the harshest of climatic conditions namely scorching heat, strong winds, and heavy snow fall and sun radiation. Ironically, it is braving these extreme weather conditions that helps lock-in an array of powerful nutrients. For just like the “survival of the fittest” Darwinism, these berries pack-in a punch to survive the harshest of conditions. This is why locals call it the “Holy Fruit”.
The leaves, berries and roots can all be used in different forms which makes it a complete food.
It’s super sour to eat. They’re great to freeze and add to smoothies throughout cold and flu season in the winter! Freezing also helps cut the sourness!
