Organic sea buckthorn powder Sea buckthorn is also called the “lemon of the north” because the small berries burst with vitamin C. In addition, there are other vitamins, minerals, and secondary plant substances with antioxidant effects. This has earned the sea buckthorn berry the reputation of a local superfood. It was said to be a remedy for wounds and a tonic even in Genghis Khan’s time. The fruits are not good to eat raw as they have an extreme, tart, and tangy taste of their own and are exceptionally sour.
