It is a plant, a thorny shrub, with silvery leaves and bright yellow-orange fruits the size of which is similar to grapes. Its botanical name, “hippophae rhamnoides,” when loosely translated, means “bright, shining horse.” Myth has it that the leaves of the sea buckthorn are the favorite food of Pegasus. Growing in sandy soil at altitudes ranging from 4,000 up to 14,000 feet, sea buckthorn has been an important economic food and medicinal resource in China. It has also been extensively planted to prevent soil erosion. Today, this shrub is planted at lower altitudes and temperate zones in many parts of the world including Canada. Myth aside, this berry is known as a cure-all in Russia, parts of Europe and Eastern Asia since approximately 1,000AD. It has been used for thousands of years to help aid cardiovascular problems, blood-related illnesses and many health issues. Traditional Chinese, Tibetan and Indian medicine utilized this tart berry as remedy to fever, cough, inflammation, frostbite and other ailments.
