About the Seabuckthorn plant
Seabuckthorn is native to Siberia, Finland, India, Germany, Mongolia and numerous other European and Asian countries. The berry, leaves and bark have been used for centuries. Ghengis Khan is said to have fed seabuckthorn berries to his army and the leaves to his horses to keep both healthy and strong prior to battle. Tibetan medicinal texts from as early as 600 A.D. refer to the herbal remedies made of seabuckthorn for skin and digestive disorders. Recent applications have been diverse including drinks for athletes in Olympic games, salves to prevent radiation damage for cosmonauts, shampoos, skincare and tea to relieve the stress level of the army working at higher elevations in the Himalayas.
