Benefits backed by science
Research suggests that sea buckthorn supports heart health by reducing blood pressure, improving blood cholesterol levels and protecting against blood clots. The effects may be strongest in people with poor heart health.
Sea buckthorn oil may help protect your body against infections. Experts attribute this effect, in large part, to the high flavonoid content of the oil. Flavonoids are beneficial plant compounds which may strengthen your immune system by increasing resistance to illnesses.
Sea buckthorn is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our cells from oxidative stress, which occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity in your cells. When functioning properly, free radicals can help fight off pathogens. Pathogens lead to infections.
Sea buckthorn contains omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids, which promote overall brain health. They may also improve memory and concentration by managing restlessness, aggression, and impulsiveness
Sea buckthorn has high amounts of omega 7 (palmitoleic acid), the rarest of all omega fatty acids. The unique fatty acid and composition of sea buckthorn oil offers many benefits to promote skin beauty. It is traditionally used in cosmetology and in food supplements to soften skin and reduce dryness.
In addition, the orange colour of sea buckthorn berries comes from carotenoids, particularly beta carotene, a naturally occurring plant pigment converted into vitamin A when it is metabolised in the body. Beta carotene is known as a nutrient that can protect and provide skin health from the inside.

Yes, there are, however, not all claims are supported by sound science. Those with the most evidence include:
May improve digestion: Some studies indicate that sea buckthorn oil may help prevent and treat stomach ulcers.
May reduce symptoms of menopause: Sea buckthorn may reduce vaginal drying and act as an effective alternative treatment for postmenopausal women who cannot take estrogen.
May treat dry eyes: In one study, daily sea buckthorn intake was linked to reduced eye redness and burning.
May lower inflammation: Research indicates that sea buckthorn leaf extracts helped reduce joint inflammation.
May reduce symptoms of depression: Studies report that sea buckthorn may have antidepressant effects. However, this hasn’t been studied in humans.
In short, free radicals are unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures. Free radicals also serve important functions that are essential for health. For example, your immune cells use free radicals to fight infections. As a result, your body needs to maintain a certain balance of free radicals and antioxidants.
Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity in your cells. When functioning properly, free radicals can help fight off pathogens. Pathogens lead to infections. When there are more free radicals present than can be kept in balance by antioxidants, the free radicals can start doing damage to fatty tissue, DNA, and proteins in your body. Proteins, lipids, and DNA make up a large part of your body, so that damage can lead to a vast number of diseases over time. Oxidative stress has been linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, stroke, respiratory diseases, immune deficiency, emphysema, Parkinson’s disease, and other inflammatory or ischemic conditions.
Yes, sea buckthorn plants are commonly sold online and in plant stores. The tree can grow in full sun in most climates.
