Vitamin Bomb! Sea Buckthorn Berries
You may not have heard anything about this miracle plant but you will find out now everything you need to know about it. It is a shame that sea buckthorn is not as famous as goji berries because basically they are the same. Sea buckthorn berries are extremely rich in antioxidants and vitamins, especially vitamin C and vitamin A.
The amazing thing about this plant is that not only the berries are good for your health, you can also use its buds or its bark which have anti-inflammatory properties and also help in lowering the cholesterol level. Even more, sea buckthorn berries help you lose weight by inhibiting your appetite and in the same time fueling your body with vitamins.
I use sea buckthorn oil as a night cream. I combined it with some almonds oil and it is doing miracles to my skin.
There are two ways I like to eat sea-buckthorn berries. I like to juice them and to combine them with honey. My advice, if you have over 500g of sea buckthorn berries, is to juice some of them and drink right away, add in a few jars with honey, and freeze the rest to juice later.
Don’t forget to add some honey or any other healthy sweetener in the juice. These berries are really sour!
Sea Buckthorn berries with honey are truly amazing when it comes to curing sore throat and flu. Really! It does miracles. It is also recommended to eat 1-2 tsp daily, each morning on empty stomach. It acts as a great immunostimulent.
So search for sea buckthorn berries at your local farmers’ market. They can be found only in this time of the year.
Have you ever heard of sea buckthorn? Did you use it in any way? Looking forward to your comments.
