A Background on the Berry
Sea buckthorn (sea buckthorn, Hippophae Rhamnoides) is a hardy plant that is indigenous to select regions in the Northern Hemisphere. The wild-growing shrub produces bright orange berries that contain more nutrients than practically any other food source on the planet. The fruit from the plant, nutritionally dense sea buckthorn berries, contain over 190 beneficial bio-actives including antioxidants, minerals, flavonoids, carotenoids, Vitamins A, B’s, E and 10x more Vitamin C than oranges, plus a spectrum of Omegas including 3, 6, 9 and the highly elusive Omega 7 which is vital for internal and external health. In recent years, studies have found remarkable improvements on everything from gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, urogenital functions to noticeably healthier exteriors.
Not all sea buckthorn is the same and its nutritional profile is dependent on altitude, soil, air quality and temperature extremes. SeaBuck 7 sources their berries from their proprietary location high in the Himalayan Mountains. The berries are grown at altitudes topping 12,000 ft. above sea level and in a climate that varies from 90° F in the summer months to -30° F below zero in the winter. These severe conditions force the plant to extract as many nutrients from the soil as possible to fortify themselves against the excessive climatic variances. The wild-crafted sea buckthorn used in all SeaBuck 7 products is, simply put, the best variety available.The berries are annually harvested berry and processed within hours of being collected. The oils and pureed fruit are then shipped, by refrigerated container ships, to the USA where the finished products are prepared and packaged under stringent quality standards.
