Sea Buckthorn Overview

Written by FoundHealth.

Sea buckthorn (not to be confused with common buckthorn ) is a plant native to high altitude regions of China and Russia, but today it is cultivated in many other areas, including the Saskatchewan province of Canada. The fruits of the plant have a long history of use as food. It was also used in ancient Chinese medicine for treating skin problems and digestive disorders. The whole berry or its oil extract are the parts used medicinally.


In the study of sea buckthorn for preventing colds noted above, the dose used was 28 g of frozen berry puree daily.

Sea buckthorn oil is commonly recommended to be taken at a dose of 5 ml, 2-3 times per daily, or applied externally to lesions of the skin or mucous membranes.

Other sea buckthorn products should be used according to label instructions.
