Organic sea buckthorn

Organic sea buckthorn

Origin Germany | Supplier of omega fatty acids 3,6,7, 9, vitamin A (as beta-carotene) and phytosterols

Sea buckthorn, known as the “sacred fruit” in Tibet, is found in centuries-old medical texts in Tibet and China. The plant was used there to treat coughs, digestive problems, skin problems, wounds and burns, and even depression. Sea buckthorn is known for its adaptability to different soil types and climatic conditions, which makes it a widespread shrub in Germany, where our organic sea buckthorn comes from.

What active ingredients does sea buckthorn contain?

Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) is one of the strongest plants in nature. The orange berry contains twelve times as much vitamin C as an orange or three times as much vitamin A as carrots. It also contains the full spectrum of omega fatty acids (3, 6, 7 and 9) in a balanced ratio, as well as antioxidants such as vitamin E and beta-carotene. The precious omega 7 fatty acid is currently only available from two plant sources: Macadamia nut oil and sea buckthorn oil. However, there is twice as much omega 7 in sea buckthorn fruit oil as in macadamia oil. Sea buckthorn also contains over 190 bioactive substances, including antioxidants, polyphenols, carotenoids and phytosterols.


Where does the sea buckthorn used for Ogaenics grow?

Our organic sea buckthorn is grown organically in Germany. It grows best in the karstic soils of the coast with a high salt and acidity content of the soil. This is where our sea buckthorn unfolds its greatest potential. The sea buckthorn is harvested by hand when it reaches its maximum maturity, leaving most of the plant intact to fruit again the next year.

How is Ogaenics sea buckthorn extract produced?

The freshly harvested organic sea buckthorn is the basis for the extract we use for Ogaenics. The sea buckthorn is shock frozen directly after harvesting to preserve the valuable nutrients. For production, the frozen fruits are mixed into a fruit pulp without their leaves and branches. In the next step, the oil is gently dissolved from the juice without any solvents using environmentally friendly supercritical CO2 extraction. By avoiding thermal and oxidative damage during the manufacturing process, the bioactive lipids are preserved in their natural form. Our raw material therefore contains the full spectrum of vegan omega fatty acids with omega 3 (as alpha-linolenic acid), omega 6 (as linoleic acid), omega 9 (as oleic acid) and the rare omega 7 (palmitoleic acid) as well as a valuable natural vitamin A and E content and phytosterols together with all natural co-factors and co-nutrients for optimum absorption in the body.
