Why use sea buckthorn
Sea buckthorn is a plant that has many health benefits and its usability is really wide. Due to its high content of vitamin C and initial occurrence the sea buckthorn is also occasionally known as the lemon tree of the north. Orange berries contain more vitamin C than an orange and a wide range of other beneficial substances. Sea buckthorn is found mainly in China, Nepal, India and Siberia, but it can grow almost anywhere as it is not difficult to grow.
Last year we planted 500 seedlings of sea buckthorn in Vitaminator orchards. Therefore, in two years you can buy not only our delicious sea buckthorn juice, but also sea buckthorn berries.
What sea buckthorn contains
Buckthorn berries are a natural concentrate of not only vitamin C, but also of a number of other beneficial substances - vitamins A, B, D, F, K, P, amino acids, sugars, tannins, and essential oils. Amino acids are essential for the maintenance and recovery of muscles, tendons, skin, ligaments, nails and hair. Further it is involved in the production of hormones, enzymes and other beneficial substances. Vitamin P strengthens capillaries and prevents degradation of vitamin C and increases its effect. This causes the high resistance of vitamin C in buckthorn berries, which is then well preserved even after drying and heat treatment. The berries further include coumarins and many minerals. The orange-red colour of the fruit is caused by their content of carotenoids – vitamins of the A group soluble in fat.
