Sea Buckthorne Herb
The Sea Buckthorn is a deciduous shrub in the Oleander family and the berry it produces has recently been given the title of a super food. The most wide spread Sea Buckthorne is called Common Sea Buckthorne and is found growing along the Atlantic coast of Europe all the way to northwestern China. The branches of the Common Sea Buckthorne are stiff and dense and produce orange berries that are soft and juicy and full of vitamin C.
Because of the densely growing branches and stiff leave it makes harvesting the berries difficult and often the berries are harvested by removing the entire branch and freezing it making it easy to shake off the berry; however, this is very destructive to the plant and reduces the production.
Sea Buckthorne berries are not generally eaten raw but are often mixed with other juices and teas and other beverages. The Sea Buckthorne juice separates into 3 layers, a top layer that consists of a thick orange cream, the middle layer that is rich in fatty acids and the bottom which is juice and sediment.
