Immunity is the ability and process of resistance of the human body against pathogens harmful to our skin and body. This is crucial to good health because it means not only freedom from diseases and pains, but also a optimal condition physically, mentally and socially. Continuous good health depends on two things: prevention and wholistic maintenance. In other words, to eliminate pathogens before illness strikes and to avoid further pathological changes and compications when it does.
Seabuckthorn provides more than 190 nutrients and bioactive substances, and many of them are considered immune building factors, such as linolenic acid (Omega 3), linoleic acid (Omega 6), oleic acid (Omega 9), palmitoleic acid(Omega 7), vitamins E, A, carotene, polyphenols, flavonoids and trace elements including iron, copper, manganese, selenium, etc. This group of well-coordinated and well-proportioned immune building factors regulates and improves the immune system in different processes and at different levels, restores disturbed immune system, strengthens the body’s resistance to diseases, thus effectively preventing diseases and speeding up recovery. The same qualities are key inputs for good looking skin, hair and nails.
Since the late 1970s, scientific studies led to many important discoveries about the adverse effects of free radicals and oxidation on our health. It is found that more than 80 diseases are related to free radicals, the most common ones include stroke, myocardial infarction, infant anemia, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, tumors, cataract, radiation damage, burn, brown spots, wrinkles, aging, arthritis, lung disease, nephritis, hepatitis, etc.
Seabuckthorn fruit has been found rich in antioxidants like superoxide dimutase enzyme, Vitamin C and E, carotenoids and flavonoids. (Yang and Kallio 2002)
Anti oxidants dramatically reduce the effects of Free radicals and are anti ageing and are a great rejuvenator of the body.
Since the late 1970s, scientific studies have led to many important discoveries about the adverse effects of free radicals and oxidation on our health. Anti oxidants are the single most effective barrier to prevent ageing of cells.
Omega 7 is the most important and essential fatty acid responsible for optimum skin health and is found in abundance in the seabuckthorn berry. It nourishes the skin and helps combat dryness and wrinkles, and consequent loss of skin elasticity, and other symptoms of malnourished or aging skin. It rejuvenates skin by helping in :
enhancing your skin’s ability to retain moisture,
protecting against sun damage,
protecting against environmental toxins and oxidative damage,
boosts collagen production,
restoring youthful resilience and plumpness to ageing skin cells ,
rejuvenating skin cell membranes,
repairing sun damaged skin,
REASONS FOR GOOD HEALTH, SKIN AND BEAUTY
Our skin is like a magnificent organ that protects us and if we ignore it , we miss our greatest opportunities for skin care, skin health and beauty.
Being the largest organ of the body our skin protects us from our environment, keeps our insides protected, and helps detoxify our bodies through perspiration and oil secretion. With such important functions the best thing we can do to help our skin is to feed it from the inside out. This will ensure beauty through beautiful skin.
Seabuckthorn gives soft and glowing skin because seabuckthorn and its nutrients specifically Omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9 boosts collagen and elastin in skin thereby making it soft and supple. These nutrients nourish the mucus membranes below skin and promote tissue regeneration.
Seabuckthorn is anti ageing and anti wrinkle because seabuckthorn’s nutrients, antioxidants and omegas 3, 6. 7 and 9 gives our bodies vital nutrients to combat free radicals and maintain a healthy lipid barrier to retain moisture within our skin tissue, nourishing and hydrating skin making it plump and easing out the wrinkles naturally. Seabuckthorn contains Lutein, which the human body cannot make itself, which has the ability to bolster the skins natural antioxidants and protect against damage from the sun and environmental free radicals keeping skin degradation and aging at bay.
Balances your skin type by improving your metabolism and providing much needed nutrients to skin. Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 7 and Omega 9 occur in a natural balance in seabuckthorn- a natural balance or proportion which is required by the human body making it one of nature’s most unique plants.
Beta carotene and Cantaxathine guards against environmental stress while boosting skins immunity and promoting balance. It thereby also alleviates acne, excema and symptoms of rosacea.
Seabuckthorn is good for your Hair as well – giving you soft and silky and stronger hair by providing hair and scalp much required nutrients. The Greeks used to give their horses seabuckthorn because it gave them a shiny coat of hair and made them very strong. The greek name for seabuckthorn is hippophae which literally means shiny horse. In fact seabuckthorn has over 190 nutrients including antioxidants, amino acids , trace minerals and omegas good for hair.
Not only does seabuckthorn rejuvenate skin and hair, but it is also very good for nails by providing essential nutrients on a regular basis to the nails as seabuckthorn has over 190 nutrients including antioxidants, amino acids , trace minerals and omegas good for nails and nail health as well. Hair and nails and skin are the parts of the body which are continuously growing and require regular nourishment for strong and good looking growth.
Normally to obtain the nutrients one would find in a capsule of Biosash Seabuckthorn you would require to consume 5 servings of raw or steamed vegetables as well as a handful of nuts like walnuts, flax seeds, and almonds etc for such a wide range of nutrients such as Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, and nutrients including antioxidants, amino acids , trace minerals , folic acid and flavonoids.
Sea buckthorn is medically claimed as having phytoantioxidant, antiinflammatory, and anti cancerous properties in humans. Sea buckthorn reduces liver damage by antioxidant activity, making it hepatoprotective. Sea buckthorn extract has considerable anti fat liver effects. Malic acid and oxalic acid in sea buckthorn, protects liver form all sorts of inflammation, infection. Hydrolyzable tannins of seabuckthorn have shown significant anti hepatotoxic action. Seabuckthorn extract has considerable anti fat liver effects. (Hikino et al 1985)
A number of studies have been carried out on the effects of flavonoids of Seabuckthorn on cardiovascular diseases, and reveal that they have a positive inotropic effect, improve cardiac performance, decrease peripheral resistance and do not increase heart rate. Total flavonoids of Seabuckthorn have a curative effect on angina pectoris and also anti arrhythmic effect. Proper cholesterol level is essential for cardiovascular health and omega 7 is best to maintain the proper level of cholesterol. Omega 7 can smooth the arterial side and strengthen the walls of the arteries. Like omega 3 it helps to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL). In fact, omega 7 helps in reducing bad cholesterol as well as enhancing good cholesterol (HDL).
Taken internally, omega 7 fatty acid signals the body to stop storing fat.* Clinical studies have shown that, not only do users melt away fat, but they also keep it off for longer periods.*
This amazing compound, Omega 7, found in seabuckthorn, also helps the body maintain insulin sensitivity and fight off the imbalances that can result in metabolic syndrome.*
Insulin sensitivity plays a major role in helping the body convert glucose into energy, rather than storing it as fat.
Research shows that omega 7 imitates a hormone in the body that helps regulate systemic metabolic activity.*
Omega 7 eliminates the dryness of the eyes and maintains moisture in the eyes. Reduce fatigue and pain in the eyes. Eliminate redness and irritation in the eyes. Sea buckthorn is the richest source of Vitamin-A in the form of carotene. Out of all Carotenoids known in nature 39 carotenoids more than any other have been identified in sea buckthorn. Carotenoids improve the metabolic normalization and regenerate the injured tissues. Deficiency of Carotenoids in human foods leads to eyes disease. These have protective effect on mucous membranes of various body tissue including tissues in eye. Mucus membranes are protective in nature and offers functions like moisturizer and lubrication. These reduces inflammation and has shown benefits in treating eye disease like trachoma, protruding eyes goiter, keratitis bubble, eyelid burn and conjunctivitis etc.
Free radicals have also been implicated in the development of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimers’s disease. Seabuckthorn fruit and leaves are quite rich in flavonoids which neutralize these free radicals.
The important nutrient 5HTP found in the sea buckthorn is helpful in increasing the level of serotonin in our brain. 5 HTP is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, popularly known as the “happy molecule”. Serotonin helps to regulate thoughts and behavior. Serotonin has a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, appetite and pain sensation.
Carotenoids improve the metabolic normalization and regenerates the injured tissues. Deficiency of Carotenoids in human foods leads to poor growth, weak eyesight, decreases intolerance to diseases and affects the mucus membrane of gastrointestinal tract.
Carotenoids are effective remedies against burn, frostbites, ulcers and various gynaecological problems. (Mashkovski 1997)
Sea buckthorn helps regulate thyroid function and thus helps in reliving hyperthryroidism or hypothyroidism.
Thyroid malfunction often results in hormonal changes and associated diseases in women. Sea buckthorn is known to be good for your thyroid function.
Omega 7 helps to lubricate mucous membrane of gastrointestinal tract, thereby, relief in many problems related to stomach such as digestive problems, acidity and ulcers that cause problems like pain and burning in the stomach.
Polyphenolic compounds of Seabuckthorn possess an anti oxidant activity. They inhibit the growth of tumors and exhibit a radioprotective action, which protects our body from the side effects of radiation.
Seabuckthorn leaves have been found to have high content of polyphenols including tannins. A chemotherapeutic study of dry purified tannin fraction and individual components has revealed a high activity in respect to a wide spectrum of viruses : Influenza viruses/A (H1N1, H2N2,H13N6, H3N2) and B/Singapore/222/79, Herpes Simplex Viruses(HSV), Strain L2, Paramyxovirus infections, adenoviruses type 2, cytomegalo viruses and other viruses pathogenic for human beings and animals. (Shipulina 1999)
Carotenoids raise physical and physiological capacity to work in stress conditions. (Bogdanov et al 1986)
Modern research has uncovered many great medicinal and nutritional values of seabuckthorn fruit. Seabuckthorn is packed with wonderful bioactive substances and nutrients, and fatty acids including Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9, Omega 7. It is also exceptionally rich in Vitamin E with vitamins A, D, C, D and K, etc. Its active ingredients include carotene, flavonoids, antioxidants,phytosterols, serotonin, amino acids and trace elements including iron, zinc, calcium, manganese, selenium, iodine, etc., that are so important to overall good health and stress management and tolerance.
There are various research studies about sea buckthorn examining the anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and anti-atherosclerotic properties its leaves, roots, seeds, and berries.
The anti-cancer properties of the sea buckthorn are mainly attributed to antioxidant compounds which protect the cells from damage which can cause mutations and lead to cancerous cells. Various studies have demonstrated the anti-cancer activities of sea buckthorn in breast carcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer), lung cancer, semi-colon and cervical cancer,
A study in 2004, for example, compared the effect of 10 different extracts of fruits and berries, including sea buckthorn berries, on the proliferation of semi-colon cancer cells and breast cancer cells. They observed that sea buckthorn had the highest inhibition effect for the proliferation of both types of cancer cells.
Other in vitro studies observed the positive effects of sea buckthorn berries on stomach, prostate, colorectal adenocarcinoma and leukaemia cancers.
Some studies report that sea buckthorn oil also possesses anti-tumour properties. These studies reported no adverse effects in subjects administered with sea buckthorn oil indicating that sea buckthorn oil can play an important role in cancer therapy. Sea buckthorn oil may also help to counteract many side effects or treatment, restore kidney and liver function, increase appetite, and generally keep patients in good health.
It is known that sea buckthorn may participate in the prevention and treatment of cancer; it also accelerates the return to health of patients receiving chemotherapy by significantly improving the performance of the immune system and relieves haematological damage.
