The Sea Buckthorn

The Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) is a shrub décidu, rustic and dioïc which belongs to the family of Elaeagnaceae.
Its fruits, of the orange bays which are installed in compact masses on the branches, count among most nutritive and vitaminized of all the vegetable kingdom. They are consumed since centuries in Europe and Asia from where the shrub comes.

The fruits, just as the sheets and seeds, are very rich in vitamins C, E, A, B1, B2, F, K and P, out of proteins (mainly globuline and albumin), in saturated fatty acids (acid palmitic and palmitoleic) and unsaturates (acid linoleic and linoleic), in amino acids, sugars and carbohydrates. Its antioxydant activity is 93,6%.

The sea buckthorn bears his first fruits towards the four years age. An orchard produces approximately 10 tons of fruits, 165 kg of seeds and 1,5 ton of sheets to the hectare.
