Currently, the buckshot draws the attention of many researchers around the world, including those of North America, mainly for its nutritive and medicinal values. The vitamin C concentration of its fruits is much higher than that of orange, 25 times that of strawberry and 5 times that of kiwi. Their vitamin E content exceeds that of wheat, corn and soy bean. In Europe and Asia, preparations of sea buckthorn oil are used in hospitals for the treatment of burns, bed wounds and other skin complications. A dozen drugs have been designed from oils. In internal use, the sea buckthorn is used for the treatment and prevention of stomach ulcers and duodenum, blood hyperlipemia, eyes, gingivitis and cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension arterial and coronary diseases.
*The importance of local purchase! Medicinal plants cultivated in Quebec are more expensive, but the quality is exceptional. Our herbalists make them dry whole (with some exceptions), in the art rules. The plants are cultivated here and do not have to travel (polluting transport) far up to your home. In addition, they are always freshly dried. Paying a little more to encourage our producers is worth the investment!
When you take internal plants for specific health problems, we strongly advise you to consult a therapist herbalist to obtain a health assessment, personalized, safe and efficient treatment, then follow-up.
You can contact Marie-Christine Vallières, herbalist, at Scholelesamesfleurs@gmail.com to make an appointment for a private consultation in videoconference ($ 80).
