  2. 2. Greek mythology claims that Sea Buckthorn was the main food source of the mythical winged horse Pegasus. This legend probably stemmed from the fact that the plant was a major element in the diet of the best racehorses Greece had to offer. Russian cosmonauts used Sea Buckthorn to protect against radiation and it is widely used to treat frostbite and much more. Finland has derived a very popular alcoholic drink from the berry and the juice is used throughout Europe and Asia. Beijing Olympics Chinese athletes relied on beverages made from the berries to boost their strength, endurance, and overall health during competition. Genghis Khan marched his unstoppable armies across Asia, it is said that the warlord had a nutritional trick up his sleeve - Sea buckthorn. Also increasing blood flow – 16 million descendants. Historical – ours and theirs
  3. 3. First mentioned in the 8th Century in the Tibetan medical classic rGyud Bzi (The Four Books of Pharmacopoeia) attributed to Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), Sea Buckthorn contains an astonishing array of nutrients in its fruit, seed, leaves and even bark. References to medicinal use of Sea Buckthorn were also found in the texts of Ancient Greek scholars Theophrastus and Dioskorid. The oil is a valuable ingredient in topical applications as well as nutraceutical formulations. It has long been used to promote the healing of burns and is an ingredient in several commercial cosmetic products.
