Sea buckthorn

The Lemon of the North

The orange-coloured Sea buckthorn fruit contain seven-times more Vitamin C than citrus fruit.

With their orange-coloured berries, the thorny bushes found all along the coast certainly catch the eye. The berries of the sea buckthorn prove to be a veritable vitamin powerhouse, their vitamin C content outperforms that of citrus fruit several times over. In addition, they contain impressive amounts of provitamin A, vitamin E and B12 as well as minerals and trace elements. So, this prickly shrub has gradually advanced to become one of the most important local energy suppliers and a natural multi-vitamin preparation.
