Abstract

Sea buckthorn (SB) berries have been used as a medicine for centuries. Its exceptional nutritional value and health-promoting benefits have been disclosed by recent research. SB berries are high in health-promoting bioactive compounds, such as vitamin C, flavonoids, free fatty acids and carotenoids. At the same time, health-promoting benefits of SB including but not limited to anti-inflammation, skin healing property, reduction of cardiovascular disease risk have drawn a lot of attention due to accumulating evidence. This review addresses this knowledge through botanical characteristics, processing, nutritional value, health-promoting benefits and applications which provides an insight into SB for future research and development.
