Sea Buckthorn is the latest health craze. Native to Northwest Europe and China, Sea Buckthorn is also commonly known as Siberian pineapple, Sea Berry, Sandthorn and Swallowthorn. The Sea Buckhorn gets its name from its thorns and habit of growing near the sea. The plant has silvery deciduous leaves and bright orange berries due to its high carotene content. The berries are sour in taste but have an aromatic scent similar to pineapple.
“With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6 and 9,” according to Sibu. Sibu further states that “it’s a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.”
