SeaBerry® Baby Leaf Powder
SeaBerry® (Sea Buckthorn) baby leaf powder is 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 excellent for mood, sleep, energy, and detox support.
With rare natural calming elements like serotonin and theanine, SeaBerry® 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 excellent 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.
In vivo study was carried out to investigate the anti-fatigue effect and adaptogenic effect of sea buckthorn leaf extract. Studied groups were orally administrated sea buckthorn leaf extract at doses of 50, 200, and 800 mg/kg BW/day for one week. The biochemical parameters were monitor to evaluate the stress tolerance and recovery performance.
The result suggests that sea buckthorn leaf aqueous extract can enhance exercise capacity and exert an 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.
