Sea buckthorn is naturally found in Asia and Europe. Since ancient Tibetans and Mongolians started to use sea buckthorn more than one thousand years ago, application of the berries as medicinal ingredients has developed. The berry of sea buckthorn has for hundred of years been valued and used as a source of nutrients. The oil of sea buckthorn berry contains fatty acids of virtually all important series, omega-3, -6, -7 and -9 and is exceptionally rich in palmitoleic acid (omega -7), rarely found in the plant kingdom. The oil is also rich in natural antioxidants; tocopheryl, tocotrienols, carotenoids and plant sterols. Antioxidants inhibit harmful oxidation of fatty acids in cell membranes. Plant sterols may be of benefit to cholesterol metabolism. Working synergistically, the nutrients in sea buckthorn oil support general wellbeing and may help maintain the health and integrity of cell membranes, especially in mucous membranes and skin. Like the skin, mucosa plays an important role in protecting the internal organs from the environment. It is important for the health of human beings especially because it covers the surface of the whole digestive system, most of the respiratory system and the urogenital system. Unlike the skin, mucosa is often the route for pathogens and harmful substances to enter our body. A healthy and strong mucous membrane system is important for the general health and well being of the whole body.
