Tea Nutrition

SBT Seabuckthorn Tea is made from the highest quality Seabuckthorn Leaves available and are picked by hand in the wild while young to maintain their stellar nutritional profile.  Our sea buckthorn tea contains 24% protein and many anti-oxidants.  It is also an excellent source of natural amino acids, as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, ellagic acid, tocopherols, carotenoids.  Also found in abundance in our tea are the flavonoids quercetin, isorhamnetin, and kaempherol. SBT Seabuckthorn Tea in bags are lightly scented with jasmine flowers. Effective at reducing inflammation, boosting hemoglobin (and in turn energy levels), maintaining healthy liver function, regulating fat and blood sugar metabolism, and promoting healthy clear skin. The silvery green leaves of the seabuckthorn shrub may not have the ‘bling’ of the bright orange berries but they sure do deliver the goods.

 

A rich and diverse nutritional resource, seabuckthorn leaves contain most of the biologically active compounds in the fruit with even greater concentrations of nutrients plus some surprises uniquely their own. To start, they contain up to 24% protein – higher even than alfalfa. In addition to the protein, the leaves are loaded with a variety of anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories and nutrients essential to good health. In addition, recent studies have determined that the leaves contain a staggeirng 10 times the amount of the powerful anti-inflammatory flavonoids of the berries.

It is only recently that scientists have begun exploring the properties and health applications of seabuckthorn leaves.  The presence of both ellagic acid and quercetin in the leaves is of interest since it is widely known that ellagic acid in combination with quercetin has demonstrable success in the treatment and prevention of a number of cancers. A 2005 study on seabuckthorn leaves suggests that the extract has a substantial anti-inflammatory activity and has the potential for the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions both internal and external. Another study published in 2008 in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture has found that extracts from the leaf of seabuckthorn also have significant liver protection activity.
