Sea buckthorn is a cold-climate plant originating from the mountains of Russia and China. The Russian people call it “The Gold of Siberia”. It is loaded with such potent nutrients, that sea buckthorn oil was given to the Russian astronauts as protection against radiation. For centuries it has been used as a natural remedy for preventing infections and slowing the ageing process. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K as well as beta-carotene, flavonoids, amino acids and fatty acids and microelements such as potassium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, silicon, calcium and boron. This potent plant contributes to the natural defenses of the body and helps maintain healthy skin from within.
