The Siberian Pineapple
Sea-buckthorn (Hippophae) belongs to the oleaster family. The variety that is richest in nutrients is Hippophae rhamnoides L, which grows in the Far East, Siberia, Caucasus, Southern Caucasus and Middle Asia. Its bright orange round fruit resemble pineapple in taste, hence the popular term to describe it: “the Siberian pineapple”. Due to its high content of vitamins and bioactive substances, the fruit has been used in folk medicine for ages.
A vitamin treasury
Sea-buckthorn is one of few plants whose fruit pulp contains fat oil, and it abounds with vitamins and micro-elements. This includes vitamins from the B group, as well as E, F, K, P, folic acid, carotenoids (which is provitamin A) , anthocyanin, flavonoids, phospholipids, provitamin D, sugars, organic acids, and also micro and macro elements such as iron, boron, manganese, and others.
Although the fruit is a rich source of vitamin C, that alone does not constitute the uniqueness of the plant. There is a more precious advantage, especially that it is so rare. Namely, the sea-buckthorn fruit is free from ascorbinase, an enzyme that destroys vitamin C, which is why when it is processed or stored, the vitamin C decomposes much slower than in other plants.
When it comes to vitamin E, the sea-buckthorn is one of the richest sources, outrunning nearly all fruits and berries.
In terms of the vitamin K1 content, the sea-buckthorn can boast a higher dose than chokeberry, juniper, wild rose and blackberry. Research also indicates presence of coumarins, bioactive substances which prevent clogging of blood vessels
