Puredia SeaBerry® Tea Leaves

PUREDIA SEABERRY® TEA LEAVES

“A tea that helps to sleep and recover.”

Sea Buckthorn Baby Leaves Tea is a long used beverage by the Tibetan monk to calm and focus on their practice. It is renowned in Tibet for its natural calming effects. High in serotonin and theanine, it rejuvenates and relaxes, lowers stress, increases focus, and enhances sleep. It is also an antioxidant powerhouse and promotes good digestion and regularity. Caffeine-free, it will help you loosen up and doze off. Puredia SeaBerry® (Sea Buckthorn) Tea is made from the highest quality Tibetan Sea Buckthorn Baby Leaves available and is picked by hand in the wild while young to maintain their stellar nutritional profile. With over 40 years’ experience, our tea specialists combine tradition with innovation to bring you a tasty and healthy drink. Beautifully brewed, our fine baby tea leaves are all organic and wild crafted. The baby leaves contains 24% protein and many anti-oxidants. It is also an excellent source of natural amino acids, as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, ellagic acid, tocopherols, carotenoids. Also found in abundance in our tea are the flavonoids quercetin, isorhamnetin, and kaempferol. SeaBerry Tea in bags is lightly scented with jasmine flowers. It is effective at reducing inflammation, boosting hemoglobin (and in turn energy levels), maintaining healthy liver function, regulating fat and blood sugar metabolism, and promoting healthy clear skin. The silvery green leaves of the Sea Buckthorn shrub may not have the ‘bling’ of the bright orange berries but they sure do deliver the goods.

Nutrients and Antioxidants Present in Sea Buckthorn Leaves

  • Alpha-tocopherol -a form of vitamin E
  • Amino acids – contains 18 amino acids the body needs
  • Serine – important in metabolism, precursor to many amino acids
  • glycine – protein precursor, especially to collagen
  • aspartic acid – participates in gluconeogenesis, controlling blood sugar lows
  • threonine – helps provide energy to cells through the citric acid cycle
  • glutamic acid – difficult to research, best guess is a neurotransmitter, could be a good thing
  • lactamic acid – similar to lactic acid, a biologic middle man for metabolism
  • phenylalanine – needed for epinephrine, dopamine, norepinephrine, melanin
  • proline – critical for connective tissue
It is only recently that scientists have begun exploring the properties and health applications of Sea Buckthorn leaves. The presence of both ellagic acid and quercetin in the leaves is of interest since it is widely known that ellagic acid in combination with quercetin has demonstrable success in the treatment and prevention of a number of cancers. A 2005 study on Sea Buckthorn leaves suggests that the extract has a substantial anti-inflammatory activity and has the potential for the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions both internal and external. Another study published in 2008 in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture has found that extracts from Sea Buckthorn leaves also have significant liver protection activity.

Weight Loss Benefits

Most people know that excess body weight can cause all sorts of health problems, but most people are unaware that excess body fat around the abdominal area (also known as visceral fat or central obesity) is particularly dangerous as it can significantly increase your risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A healthy diet and regular exercise are probably the best weight loss weapons out there, but there are also a number of dietary supplements and herbal infusions that have been found to promote weight loss. A study published in the September 2011 issue of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, for example, found that powdered sea buckthorn tea derived from the leaves of the Hippophae rhamnoides plant significantly reduced visceral fat in obese mice. These weight loss effects were attributed to the ability of the sea-buckthorn tea to regulating lipid metabolism.

Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Arthritis Properties

The beneficial effects of drinking sea buckthorn leaf tea are not limited to weight loss benefits. An Indian study published in the November 2005 issue of the journal International Immuno pharmacology discovered that Sea buckthorn leaf extract has significant anti-inflammatory activities in mice and that the extract might have the potential for the treatment of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory joint disorder characterized by pain and stiffness of the affected areas, affects an estimated 1.3 million American people, and the demand for potential natural remedies for this often debilitating condition is growing rapidly.

Antioxidant Activity

Many of the famous health benefits of Sea Buckthorn berry juice have been attributed to its strong antioxidant properties. But a group of researchers from India discovered that also sea-buckthorn leaf extracts have strong antioxidant activity in vitro (when measured using ABTS, DPPH, and FRAP methods, all of which are common methods used to evaluate the antioxidant power of foods and drinks). Foods and drinks that contain high levels of antioxidants are believed to protect against many age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, macular degeneration of the eye, and Alzheimer’s disease. Antioxidant-rich infusions such as Sea Buckthorn tea also make a nice addition to anti-wrinkle diets due to their ability to scavenge free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules that can cause wrinkles and sagging skin.

Inhibitory Effects Against Pathogenic Bacteria

A study published in the December 2010 edition of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology found that extracts derived from the leaves of the sea buckthorn plant had antibacterial activity in vitro. The extracts were shown to inhibit the growth of several bacteria, including Bacillus cereus (associated with some foodborne illnesses), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (linked to certain infections in humans), Staphylococcus aureus (linked to eczema, skin infections, and some respiratory diseases), and Enterococcus faecalis (linked to urinary tract infections, endocarditis and bacteremia, meningitis, and other infections).

Study

Effects of an antioxidant-rich juice (sea buckthorn) on risk factors for coronary heart disease in humans

The objective of the study was to characterize the antioxidant profile of Sea buckthorn juice (SBJ) and to evaluate its effect on plasma lipids, LDL oxidation, platelet aggregation and plasma soluble cell adhesion protein concentration. Twenty healthy male volunteers were given either a placebo or SBJ for 8 weeks. Additional daily intakes of vitamin C, -tocopherol, -carotene and flavonoids through SBJ supplementation were 462, 3.2, 1.0 and 355 mg respectively. There were no significant changes in plasma total cholesterol, LDL-C, platelet aggregation or plasma intercellular cell adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) levels between treatment groups. Although not significant, a 20% and 17% increase in plasma HDL-C and triacylglycerol (TAG) concentrations were observed. SBJ supplementation also resulted in a moderate decrease in the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation.

Manufacturing Process:

Puredia SeaBerry® Tubular Sterilization System

Tubular sterilization system is widely used in a sterilization of concentrated pulp and juice. The system is equipped with touch screen operation and automatic control with self-cleaning and reverse cleaning system. To keep the maximal bioactive nutrition in the puree, a strict control on temperature and time are essential. With four layers of stainless steel tubular design, the heated water will not have direct contact with the product. In addition, the tubes are 80 meters long which allows the product to avoid being exposed to high temperature while also enabling the system to have good heating and cooling efficiency. A sensor at the end of the tubular system will detect the temperature of the juice. In case the temperature does not reach the set sterilization temperature, the juice will be pumped back to the tubular system and go through the sterilization process again.

From sterilization to the aseptic filling system, the entire process is designed to be within a completely closed environment (stainless steel pipes) to minimize the risk of contamination and oxidation. Multiple steam infusion is applied directly to the inlet and cap of the aseptic bag for sterilization before and after juice filling. This ensures the sterilized juice is free of contamination from the outside environment.
