Pure sea buckthorn wildcrafted from Uvs, Mongolia

The botanical name, Hippophae L. is derived from the Greek word “hippo,” meaning horse. It is believed to have been used to strengthen ancient Greek horses and restore their coats to a brilliant luster. All the way to Asia, Genghis Khan, regarded as one of the most famous conquerors of history, powered his army and their horses on sea buckthorn for stamina and recovery from battles. The strong history of sea buckthorn’s wonder lived on since in the country.

Of the 21 provinces (called aimags) in Mongolia, Uvs is regarded as the home of the best sea buckthorn in the country. High in the steppes at 936 meters (3,070 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists high altitudes and the harsh weather conditions, with winter temperatures reaching up to -50 ºC and summer temperature of up to 40 ºC. The muddy iodine-rich soil fed by permafrost water also contributes to the unique qualities of Uvs sea buckthorn.
