If you are not taking Sea Buckthorn you really need to look into this one. I have notice my skin is healthier, wrinkles diminished (probably due to the fatty acids plumping your skin)clearer and retains moisture better. I went off of it for a month and I could visibly see a difference. I like the oil either pill form or dropper. I didnt get any real improvement with the powder.
Sea buckthorn as been used for thousands of years. The Chinese army used to keep moral and strength up for battle. Russians used to to heal radiation burns (topically), it has also been used to treat lung infections, stomach ulcers and high cholesterol.
In the 1990's Russian scientist did a study using rats to determine if Sea Buckthorn would help with diet. One set of rats got Sea Buckthorn the other did not get anything then they fed the rats the same way. The study claims that the rats that took the Sea Buckthorn did not gain weight, have high cholesterol, diabetes or heart disease but the rats that did not get the Sea Buckthorn did. I dont know if I buy into all of that because I just cant believe a pill will help you lose weight. Sounds to good to be true is to good to be true.

I think the oil whether in pill form or dropper is the best source of Sea Buckthorn. Make sure it is cold pressed and you dont want fillers in it just straight Sea Buckthorn. Its a little pricey but I have found it to be worth the price. I am uncertain what happens to the fatty acids and Omega 9 in the powder form. I also use Sea Buckthorn topically on blemishes, burns, eczema and have had good results from it. I also use it as my nightly skin care routine. It is orange so if you use it during the day mix it with your moisturizer.
