It was fabulous to see a huge write up on the amazing benefits of the sea buckthorn berry in today’s copy of Body + Soul Magazine. The berry comes from the highlands of China and Russia and is also found around the costal regions of England, Scotland and Canada. This orange berry is edible however does have a very sour taste. The berry is also known by its Latin name; Hippophae Rhamnoides which means “tree that makes horses shine” relating to horses that feed on this berry in the forest and acquire a shiny coat. The berry is also now been called the new super food of 2015 due to its abilities* to lower cholesterol, treat eczema and relieve dry/red eyes.
