PUREDIA SEABERRY® BABY LEAVE POWDER
We take Puredia SeaBerry® (Sea Buckthorn) baby leaves and mill them down into a fine powder that allows for a wide range of uses including nutraceutical, food and beverage, baking, and pet care. Naturally high in serotonin, theanine, polyphenol, flavonoids, dietary fiber, and vitamins, this powder is great for mood, sleep, energy, and detox support.
With rare natural calming elements like serotonin and theanine, sea berry baby leaves provide support for changes in body chemistry that rejuvenate, relax and enhance the ability to think. With a high content of dietary fibers, antioxidants and protein, it helps to boost energy and overall day-to-day performance.
The high content of dietary fibers in the leave extract is great for detox and beauty purposes. While multiple antioxidants like polyphenols and flavonoids help fight off free radicals induced by exercise, the protein in the leaves help enhance endurance and speed up recovery after exercise.
In vivo study was carried out to investigate the anti-fatigue effect and adaptogenic effect of Sea Buckthorn Leaf Extract.
– Rats received Sea Buckthorn Leaf Extract orally at doses of 50, 200 and 800 mg / kg body weight / day for 1 week. Next, the rats were forced to swim until they were exhausted and the time of exhaustion was recorded.
– Studied groups were orally given Sea Buckthorn Leaf Extracts at doses of 50, 200 and 800 mg/kg BW/day for 1 week. The biochemical parameters were monitor to evaluate the stress tolerance and recovery performance.
The findings suggest that Sea Buckthorn leaf aqueous extract supplements can enhance exercise capacity and exert anti-fatigue effect in rats by protecting against oxidative damages induced by heavy exercise. It also demonstrated the potent adaptogenic activity of sea buckthorn leaf with no toxicity, the anti-stress ability was enhanced and the time of recovery from stress was shortened.
