Sea buckthorn is a berry record holder of useful vitamins: among them A, C, B, PP; minerals and trace elements: iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium. Among the useful properties of sea buckthorn is a powerful antioxidant effect, anti-inflammatory effect, as well as healing of damage to the skin and mucous membranes.
On the shelves of pharmacies today you can find many brands of sea buckthorn oil, but not all have a real therapeutic effect. The quality, and consequently the therapeutic effectiveness of sea buckthorn oil, completely depends on such an important indicator as the level of carotenoids.
What is the difference between best in class natural Siberian sea buckthorn oil and other ‘sea buckthorn oils’ sometimes from places that doesn’t even grow sea buckthorn fruits and which in reality are only 10-15% mg, while the rest is a carrier oil that has nothing to do with sea buckthorn?
What are carotenoids and what effect do they have on a person?
The skin tone depends on the combination of pigments: melanin, hemoglobin and carotenes. Using light sensors, the researchers showed that red and yellow shades of human skin were associated with the level of carotenoids in the skin.
The skin tone, which is given to it by the carotenoids contained in sea buckthorn oil, is perceived as healthier and sexier than a tan obtained only from a solarium. Of course, both colors also interact effectively with each other.
The optimal dose of carotenoids in sea buckthorn oil.
In pharmacopoeia oil, the level of carotenoids should be 50 mg/% and higher. This means that 100 ml of the finished oil contains at least 50 mg of carotenoids. Sometimes level of carotenoids in sea buckthorn could go up to 150-180 mg/%. This is the “shock dose” that should cope with the serious disease, and not just make up for the lack of vitamins.
Pharmacy oil (150-180 mg/%) is used strictly according to indications, should be applied under healthcare provider monitor. It should not be given to children under 14 years of age. After all, vitamin A is able to accumulate in the tissues and is slowly excreted from the body. Excessive vitamin content in the body can provoke serious health disorders. The optimal level – 50-80 mg/% - is much better and safer option. Best in class organic Siberian sea buckthorn oil is produced to match that optimal desired level of carotenoids.
