The Food Research International journal published the results of this study, which confirms all the benefits of sea buckthorn berries on our body, including vitamins.
Although still relatively unknown, this little orange fruit is a food that is not a negligible part of our diet. Indeed, two research teams, one Canadian and one Indian, demonstrated the benefits and the nutritional value provided by the sea buckthorn berry on our health.
Sea-buckthorn berries are edible and very nutritious, though very acidic (astringent) and oily, unpleasant to eat raw, unless “bletted” (frosted to reduce the astringency) or mixed as a juice with sweeter substances such as apple or grape juice.
The fruit is actually rich in nutrients and vitamins A, K, E, C, B1 and B2, fatty acids, lipids, carboxylic acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, folic acid, and flavonoids.
The oil helps to soothe eczema and also sunburn, xerostomia (dry mouth) and ulcers (mouth, stomach and genitals), urinary tract inflammation and sinus, and the dry eyes.
