Evidence Mounts That The Shrub Sea Buckthorn May Treat Cardiovascular Disease

February 9, 2011: 05:56 AM EST
A mini-review of prior preclinical and clinical studies has found that the shrub sea buckthorn, found mainly along seacoasts around the world, shows promise as a remedy for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory diseases, thrombosis and cancer. “However,” the scientists wrote, “the findings of these studies have limitations such as small sample size and short duration.” They recommended that double blind trials be conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the use of sea buckthorn as a medical treatment. The health benefits of sea buckthorn are due mainly to the flavonols, antioxidants, vitamins and other bioactive components contained in the plants, according to the researchers.
