Sea Buckthorn Benefits
In Tibetan medicine the oil extracted from sea buckthorn has been used for over 1200 years to treat chronic skin diseases.
The oil is antibacterial and can be used in the form of an ointment to also treat wounds and burns.
Sea buckthorn is known to have many positive effects including:
- Strengthening the immune system
- Reducing inflammation
- Aiding digestion
- Helping prevent cancer
- Improving metabolism of cholesterol and fat
- Increasing stamina
- Regenerating damaged skin
Creams and oils made from sea buckthorn have a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic and palmitoleic acid and thus can be easily absorbed by human skin. The vitamin e and carotenoids in sea buckthorn help neutralize harmful free radicals and protect the skin from premature aging. Especially dry and stressed skin can benefit from these ingredients.
