There are more than 5000 scientific researches done in the world carried out about the impact of the seabuckthorn on health. We have summarized a few researches to help you to understand the seabuckthorn better and to provide an insight into the complicated nature of the seabuckthorn.
It is important to understand that Western scientists have only recently begun their research and already now it is completely clear that the seabuckthorn is one of the most valuable plants in the world. PubMed (in cooperation with the USA National Library of Medicine and National Institute of Health since 1950s has placed more than 16 million scientific publications) alone has published more than 175 researches about the seabuckthorn.
