SBT SEABUCKTHORN — A POWERFUL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

The following conclusions were drawn from the examination of a number of current studies on the activities of many natural compounds  combined with our extensive knowledge of the properties and activity of seabuckthorn.

A significant amount of pain is caused by inflammation.

Prostaglandins are any of a group of about a dozen compounds synthesized from fatty acids in mammals as well as in lower animals. Prostaglandins are highly potent substances that are not stored but are produced as needed by cell membranes in virtually every body tissue. Different prostaglandins have been found to raise or lower blood pressure and regulate smooth muscle activity and glandular secretion. One such substance, which stimulates contraction of the uterus, is used clinically to induce labor; another has been in experimental use as a birth control agent. Prostaglandins also control the substances involved in the transmission of nerve impulses, participate in the body’s defenses against infection, and regulate the rate of metabolism in various tissues. Several prostaglandins have been shown to induce fever, possibly by participating in the temperature regulating mechanisms in the hypothalamus; they also play a part in causing inflammation.

  • Prostaglandin production is modulated by the Omega 3 fatty acids in our Seabuckthorn Seed Oil.

  • The Polar Lipids in the Fruit Oil capsules enhance the cellular metabolism of the Omega 3 and Vitamin E that occur naturally in the Seabuckthorn Seed and Fruit Oil .

  • The caffeic acid and the ferulic acid in the tea are potent inhibiters of allergic reactions and tissue swelling.

  • Folic acid in tea is employed in prevention of vascular inflammation.

  • Both the Seabuckthorn Fruit oil and Seed oil contain significant tocopherols and tocotrienols which are potent anti-oxidants and anti-Inflammatories.

  • Phytosterols are the major constituent of the unsaponifiable content of seabuckthorn oils. Phytosterols help reduce the activity of the cells that cause inflammation, restoring the normal balance to the immune system and allowing the body to repair itself.

  • Seabuckthorn contains up to 18 carotenoids. Carotenoids are increasingly being cited as an anti-inflammatory agent.

  • The naturally occurring salicylic acid in the tea reduces inflammation and is a natural analgesic. 

  • The large amounts of quercetin in the tea and flavone capsules inhibits the production and release of histamine and other inflammatory substances.

  • The Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) in the Flavone Capsules and the carotenoids and Vitamin E in the fruit oil capsules are powerful antioxidants that support cellular health and hence the body’s ability to cope with stress and fight off inflammation.
