Out of the more than 190 nutrients and bioactive substances sea buckthorn oil provides, many are considered immune building factors, such as linolenic acid, vitamins E, A, carotene, polyphenols, flavonoids and trace elements including iron, copper, manganese, selenium, etc. This group of well-coordinated and well-proportioned factors regulates and maintains the immune system in different processes and at different levels, strengthens the body’s natural defense and helps natural healing, sea buckthorn oil is a pure natural antioxidant store. Its rich content of flavonoids, glucosides, phenols, terpenes, vitamins E, A, C, ß-carotene, and trace elements are all antioxidants with very low molecular weight to neutralize free radicals. They help activate superoxide dismutase whose role in the body is to eliminate free radicals and mutant and dead cells caused by free radicals, and increase phagocytosis of macrophage.
Gastrointestinal, Lung and Liver Health
The health promoting effects of sea buckthorn oil are direct and clear. The concerted and mutual promoting actions of the 190 some elements have positive effects on the endocrine, circulation, immune, and nervous systems and this in turn creates a most favorable condition for the digestive system. The oil provides a protective coating inside the mouth, stomach, intestines and duodenum, thus protecting mucosa and its normal functions. The protective and soothing properties of ß-sitosterol-ß-D-glucosides, ursolic acid and betaine, promote natural healing. ß-carotene, vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids stimulate cell metabolism at site and help natural healing. Sea buckthorn oil has remarkable inhibiting effects on gastric acid and abnormal increase of gastric proteinase, thus keeping the digestive system healthy and ease constipation. As sea buckthorn oil increases metabolism of cholesterol and fat, it reduces liver damage by alcohol, paracetamol and carbon tetrachloride, and removes fat and toxins from the liver. It also detoxifies the respiratory system to clear mucus and stop coughing.
Sea buckthorn oil actively reduces blood fat level, nurtures the blood vessels. Of the rich unsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid (Omega 9) reduces cholesterol; linoleic acid (Omega 6) regulates blood pressure and reduces serum cholesterol, linolenic acid (Omega 3) tends to maintain healthy blood pressure, dissolves accumulated fat and promote metabolism and regulate sugar level. Together they facilitate normal blood circulation. Sitosterol is one of the materials forming cell membrane and it stimulates metabolism. It combines cholesterol in foods and get rejected, and thus reducing serum cholesterol content. Vitamin E promotes metabolism, prevents oxidation of high-density (bad) cholesterol in the serum, thus inhibiting and reducing cholesterol settlement along the blood vessel wall. Phosphatides and triterpenoids inhibit cholesterol formation and help its removal. Sea buckthorn oil has tonic effects to cerebral cardiovascular systems. Total flavonoids increase blood flow of the coronary artery and supply nutrients to heart muscles, lower oxygen consumption, strengthen muscle contraction, thus improving the heart function and increasing anti-hypoxia ability of the system. Sitosterols soften the blood vessels, and increase their tenacity, improve its elasticity. Vitamins E and other antioxidants remove wastes including peroxides and ailing and dead cells from the blood, and avoid damages the wastes may do to the artery walls. 5-serotonin and betaine protect the cerebral cardiovascular functions by comprehensive regulation and coordination of the nervous, endocrine and the immune systems.
Free fatty acids, carbohydrates, phytosterol, phosphatide, vitamins E and A, carotenoids in sea buckthorn oil are organically combined together providing more protection and nutrition to the skin. The free fatty acids are easily absorbed by the skin, which it helps keep slightly acidic, and inhibits unhealthy microbes. Linoleic acid (Omega 6), palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) and linolenic acid (Omega 3) promote healing of tissue damage, and the hydrocarbon prevents excessive moisture loss of the skin, softens and lubricates the skin and keep it smooth and fair. Sitosterol improves microcirculation in the skin. Phosphatide forms a protective film to prevent moisture loss and keep invaders at bay, and acts both as a moisture regulator and an antioxidant against wrinkles. The miracle properties of stimulation to tissue regeneration and epithelial natural healing but without leaving scars, make sea buckthorn oil a most welcome remedy for burn, cuts, frostbites, bed sores, wounds, etc.
Your Sub-Health Condition
Sub-health condition is a state between health and disease when all necessary physical and chemical indexes are tested negative by medical equipments and things seem normal, but the person experiences all kind of discomfiture and even pain.

The danger is we do not really know what is wrong and we neglect it. Sea buckthorn oil provides various nutrients and bio-active substances the body needs, such as unsaturated fatty acids, carotenoids, phytosterols, amino acids, vitamins and trace elements. They regulate and harmonize the endocrine, circulatory, autonomic nerve and digestive systems. This, with antioxidant and free radical resistant properties, may effectively restore health and help get rid of sub-health conditions.
Computer operators, cell phone users, medical personnel related to X-ray, electronic or nuclear workers, astronauts, pilots, stewards stewardesses, etc., may be subjected to radiation, and Vitamin E, carotenoids, flavonoids, unsaturated fatty acids, malic acid and selenium promote self reparation of tissues and cells. Sea buckthorn oil provides a rich and comprehensive supply of nutrients, improves blood circulation and removes stasis, and eliminates waste, promotes healthy tissue growth, improves gastrointestinal functions, restores liver and kidney functions, increases the self- repairing ability of the traumatized organs and cells, promotes the functions of the spleen and bone marrow and blood generation, and protects the heart, spleen, liver, kidney & lung against the damaging effects of radiation. The same way it also may improve life quality of patients by reducing the adverse effects of operation, chemotherapy and radiation.
Sea buckthorn oil provides comprehensive nutrients and has multi-effects on the endocrine, circulation, nerves, immune and reproductive systems by regulating and coordinating them.

CO2 supercritical fluid extracted in the most advanced facility, Balanceuticals brand Sea buckthorn oil is the best in quality. Of the14 fatty acids almost 90% are unsaturated and the two essential unsaturated fatty acids linolenic acid (Omega 3) and linoleic acid (Omega 6) are in almost perfect 1:1 ratio. Research says that the check and balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 is important in regulating thousands of metabolic functions through prostaglandine pathways, and nearly every biologic function is somehow interconnected with it. The rare palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) is very important for cell membrane, tissue regeneration and skin care. In all, sea buckthorn oil is a great herb store of natural remedies by itself, and if you decide to take just one supplement this is IT.
