Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Hypertension
Dose: Refer to label instructions Test tube, 1 animal studies,2 and preliminary human research suggest that flavonoids from sea buckthorn may have blood pressure–lowering effects.3 In a controlled trial, a group of overweight women, some of whom had high blood pressure, consumed for one month either 100 grams per day of fresh sea buckthorn berries, or an equivalent amount of sea buckthorn oil or sea buckthorn berry extract.4 None of these forms of sea buckthorn had any blood-pressure lowering effect on the group as a whole. Double-blind research in people with hypertension is needed to clarify the possible benefits of sea buckthorn for this condition.

Burns
Dose: Refer to label instructions In animal studies, sea buckthorn extracts have been shown to speed the healing of skin injuries, including burns.1 In a controlled trial,2 people treated for burns with dressings containing sea buckthorn oil had greater pain relief and faster healing than those treated with a standard burn dressing.

Eczema
Dose: Refer to label instructions Sea buckthorn oil contains large amounts of essential fatty acids that are important to skin health and control of inflammation,1, 2 and has constituents that, according to test tube and animal research, could influence the immune system abnormalities underlying skin conditions such as eczema.3 Double-blind studies have investigated a sea buckthorn extract taken by mouth and a topical application of sea buckthorn. In one study,4 people with eczema who took 5 grams per day of sea buckthorn pulp oil for four months had reduced symptoms of eczema, but their improvement was no better than in those taking a placebo. In another study,5 people with eczema applied daily to the affected area either a 10% sea buckthorn cream, a 20% sea buckthorn cream, or a placebo cream. After four weeks all groups had small reductions in the severity of eczema symptoms, but the sea buckthorn creams were no more helpful than the placebo cream.

Common Cold and Sore Throat
Dose: Refer to label instructions Sea buckthorn has been shown in animal studies to have immune system-enhancing and anti-inflammatory properties that might help prevent or relieve the common cold.1 However, in a double-blind trial,2 healthy people who consumed 28 grams per day of pureed sea buckthorn berries for three months had the same number and duration of common cold episodes as a group consuming a placebo puree. Sea buckthorn does not appear to be effective for preventing or relieving the common cold.

Peptic Ulcer
Dose: Refer to label instructions Sea buckthorn contains flavonoids and other constituents that promote healing, and sea buckthorn oil has been shown to both prevent and heal peptic ulcers in animal studies.1 Direct application of sea buckthorn oil to ulcers during medical treatment with endoscopy has been reported to improve results,2 but no studies of treating peptic ulcers with sea buckthorn oil supplements have been done.

Dose: Refer to label instructions Animal research reports that sea buckthorn flavonoids lower blood glucose.1, 2 In a preliminary trial, children with type 1 diabetes who consumed a concentrated mixture of sea buckthorn berries and blueberries (concentration and relative proportions not stated) for two months had improved blood measures of glucose control.3 Double-blind research using sea buckthorn alone is needed to confirm these findings and to determine an effective daily amount of sea buckthorn.
