– In ancient Greece, it was given to the horses as feed because it was thought to give them a lustrous coat (hippos=horse, phaos=brilliant).

Sea buckthorn grows high in the Himalayan region and has been used in Asia over the centuries as an herbal medicine to relieve cough, aid digestion, invigorate blood circulation, and alleviate pain. Today it is reputed for withstanding harsh winters and used as a treatment for flu symptoms. Categorized as an adoptogenic plant, it is an important remedy for flu-like symptoms (after sudden chill). Just like all plants, sea buckthorn is a carrier of light but it excels in this category (chlorophyllian benefits). Symbol of fertile soil, sea buckthorn illuminates the soil (intestinal soil) therefore favouring immunity, physical and mental tone. The intestines insure the balance of the immune, mental and endocrine trio.
