SEA BUCKTHORN BENEFITS
Sea buckthorn fruits are rich in flavonoids and antioxidants, fat or water soluble vitamins (A, B, C, D, E, F, PK, B complex), phytosterois, polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3, 6, 7, 9), amino acids and minerals (iron, calcium), carbohydrates and proteins. The vitamin C content is particularly high, over 10 times that of oranges.
There are exceptionally high amounts of lipids in sea buckthorn compared to other fruits & vegetables. Lipids enhance the bioavailability of carotenoids, facilitating their absorption in humans.
Sea buckthorn seed oil is characterised by a high content of oleic acid (17%) and a one to one ration of omega-3 and omega-6. The equivalence relation between the two omega oils is particularly important as it intervenes in the regulation of thousands of metabolic functions. Almost every biological function is interconnected with the balance between omega-6 and omega-3.
Due to this exceptional composition, sea buckthorn has a wide range of different biological, physiological and medicinally active effects, which have been extensively studied and described.
With the exceptionally rich content of sea buckthorn in vitamins, omega fatty acids, the results of consuming sea buckthorn products can still be limited because by consuming plant products most of the biologically valuable compounds are poorly assimilated. Fermentation is widely recognised as a highly efficient method of releasing these valuable compounds and making them bioavailable. During this process, many other very useful compounds for the body also appear.
The developed biotechnology used to create this product introduces completely new stages of sea buckthorn processing, in particular through the use of alcoholic fermentation, which finally obtains functional foods of high value that are fully preserved and have a creamy texture, which are non-alcoholic and easy to store and consume, which are rich in existing biologically valuable components in the fruit and the honey used, bio-activated or formed in the preparation process.
Melinis also use advanced crystallisation technology to create their products, which allows for the combination or fusion of fresh fruits with natural honey at temperatures below 35 degrees. The result is this deliciously intense flavoured, delicate fruit & honey cream.
