What is Sea Buckthorn Extract?

Sea Buckthorn is used in the food and cosmetics industries, in traditional folk medicine, and for various ecological purposes. Numerous health benefits effects of sea buckthorn are well-known and include cardiovascular health, respiratory health, skin health and adaptation to the effects of stress [1]. Sea Buckthorn possesses may support antioxidant activity, natural healing response, wound recovery support, fever support as well as being a novel adaptogen [2] [4]. *

How Could Sea Buckthorn Extract Support My Health?

In Indian, Chinese and Tibetan health practices sea buckthorn fruit was added to tonics, as their ingredients were thought to have a beneficial effect on the function of the alimentary, respiratory and circulatory systems [5]. Regular intake of Sea Buckthorn Fruit supports gastric and gut health as well as providing natural healing response support [6]. *

Sea-buckthorn extract supports healthy cholesterol, virus and bacteria support, hair strength and hair health, liver health, skin health and the viability of probiotic cells [7] [9]. *

It strengthens the structure of hair, thus, it is used as an effective remedy for promoting hair health and hair growth. *

Sea-buckthorn fruit oil is characterized by a unique content of fatty acids compared to other vegetable oils. In particular, it should be noted that this oil contains rare palmitoleic acid (omega-7) which is a component of skin lipids and stimulates regenerative processes in the epidermis and wound healing. Sea-buckthorn oil activates physiological skin functions and may reduce the appearance of scars. Its oil is used in cosmetic industry as an ingredient for products designed to treat mature skin. It is most commonly found in anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products, as it is a great antioxidant [10]. *

It has a high content of unique gamma-linolenic acid which has a significant effect on the transport of nutrients to the skin. Gamma-linolenic acid is a building material for components of intercellular cement as it binds epidermis cells. It is an important component of phospholipids, which build cell membranes [11]. *

Gamma-linolenic acid improves blood circulation which positively affects the supply of nourishment and oxygen to the skin, and it removes excess toxins which leads to the improvement of skin structure, appearance, and tone. Gamma-linolenic acid contained in sea-buckthorn oil easily penetrates to deeper skin layers where it is converted to prostaglandins. Therefore, Gamma-linolenic acid effectively protects skin against infections, counteracts allergies, relieves skin and slows down the aging process [12]. *

Dietary proanthocyanidins as health-protective agents have become an important area of human nutrition research because of their potent bioactivities. Proanthocyanidins of Sea buckthorn has protective effects against light-induced retinal degeneration via antioxidant, cell-calming and antiapoptotic mechanisms [13]. *

The presence of a lipid extraction of sea buckthorn can positively influence the viability of probiotic cells during heat treatment and in vitro gastrointestinal passage. The viability of probiotic cells can be improved by approximately 12% in yogurt if only consumed between 20 and 40 °C, and by about 16% if a lipid fraction of sea buckthorn is used in the encapsulated form of probiotics. The rich in monounsaturated fatty acids sea buckthorn fraction improved the in vitro digestion passage of alginate encapsulated Lactobacillus casei [14]. *

The effect of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) on cirrhotic patients was remarkable. Sea buckthorn is a powerful support in liver health. It may support viral health in hepatitis patients when it is taken with a combination of an antiviral help [15]. Vaccines and antiviral drugs are the most widely used methods of preventing or treating Influenza virus infection. The role of sea buckthorn extract viral support agent is beneficial. The extract is able to support Influenza A H1N1 virus in vitro at a concentration of 50 μg/ml [16]. Berries of Hippophae rhamnoides has been reported to exhibit significant radio-protection against whole-body lethal irradiation [17]. Stress-induced cell damage and neurodegeneration are ameliorated by H. rhamnoides [18]. *

The fruit is also rich in phytosterols, β-sitosterol being the major sterol compound as it constitutes 57–83% of total sterols. Flavonols were found to be the predominating class of phenolic compounds, while phenolic acids and flavan-3-ols (catechins) represent minor components. Health-beneficial fatty acids, as well as higher amounts of vitamin B12, found in Sea buckthorn.
