Overview Information

Sea buckthorn is a plant. The leaves, flowers, seeds, and fruits are used to make medicine.

Sea buckthorn is used for heart health, skin conditions, swelling (inflammation), and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support any of these uses.

In foods, sea buckthorn berries are used to make jellies, juices, purees, and sauces.

In manufacturing, sea buckthorn is used in cosmetics and anti-aging products.

How does it work?

Sea buckthorn contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and other active ingredients. It might have some activity against stomach and intestinal ulcers, and heartburn symptoms.


Uses & Effectiveness?

Possibly Ineffective for

  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis). Early research shows that taking sea buckthorn pulp oil by mouth for 4 months improves atopic dermatitis. However, sea buckthorn seed oil taken by mouth does not have this effect. Also, applying cream containing 10% or 20% sea buckthorn on the skin for 4 weeks does not seem to improve symptoms of mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis.

Insufficient Evidence for

  • Heart disease. Developing research in China suggests that taking a particular sea buckthorn extract three times by mouth for 6 weeks lowers cholesterol, reduces chest pain, and improves heart function in people with heart disease.
  • Long-term kidney disease (chronic kidney disease or CKD). Early research shows that taking sea buckthorn oil daily for 8 weeks does not help remove waste products from the blood or prevent dry mouth in people undergoing dialysis.
  • Liver scarring (cirrhosis). Early research shows that taking sea buckthorn extract might reduce liver enzymes and other chemicals in the blood that indicate liver problems.
  • Common cold. Early research suggests that consuming sea buckthorn berries in a frozen puree for 90 days does not prevent the common cold or make symptoms go away faster.
  • Digestive tract infection. Early research suggests that consuming sea buckthorn berries in frozen puree for 90 days does not prevent digestive tract infections.
  • Dry eye. Some early research shows that taking a specific sea buckthorn product by mouth decreases feelings of eye redness and burning. Using an eyelid spray containing sea buckthorn helps to reduce feelings of dryness in the eye.
  • Indigestion (dyspepsia). Early research suggests that taking sea buckthorn may help regulate the appetite children with functional dyspepsia. But sea buckthorn doesn't appear to improve the rate at which food empties from the stomach into the intestines.
  • High levels of cholesterol or other fats (lipids) in the blood (hyperlipidemia). Consuming sea buckthorn berries or extracts might lower "bad" cholesterol and increase "good" cholesterol in people with high cholesterol or fatty liver disease not caused by alcohol use. But it's not clear what dose or formulation of sea buckthorn works best.
  • High blood pressure. Early research suggests that taking sea buckthorn by mouth for up to 8 months might reduce high blood pressure similarly to certain blood pressure-lowering drugs.
  • A group of symptoms that indicate kidney damage (nephrotic syndrome). Early research shows that taking sea buckthorn by mouth in addition to standard care helps reduce swelling, improve appetite, and reduce the amount of protein in the urine in people with nephrotic syndrome. It's not clear if these improvements with sea buckthorn plus standard care are better than what would be achieved with standard care alone.
  • Obesity. Early evidence shows that taking sea buckthorn berries, berry oil, or berry extract by mouth does not reduce body weight in overweight or obese women.
  • Scaly, itchy skin (psoriasis). Early research shows that using sea buckthorn oil on the skin helps to reduce the scaly skin in people with psoriasis.
  • Thinning of vaginal tissue (vaginal atrophy). Early research suggests that taking sea buckthorn oil daily does not improve symptoms of vaginal thinning in postmenopausal women.
  • Esophageal damage caused by reflux of stomach contents (gastroesophageal reflux disease, GERD).
  • Acne.
  • Aging.
  • Arthritis.
  • Asthma.
  • Burns.
  • Cancer.
  • Cancer therapy side effects.
  • Chest pain (angina).
  • Cough.
  • Cuts.
  • Diabetes.
  • Dry skin.
  • Gout.
  • Heartburn.
  • Immune system booster.
  • Pressure ulcers.
  • Skin wrinkles from sun damage.
  • Stomach ulcers.
  • Sunburn.
  • Vision disorders.
  • Wounds.
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate sea buckthorn for these uses.

Side Effects

Side Effects & Safety

When taken by mouth: Sea buckthorn fruit is LIKELY SAFE when consumed as food. Sea buckthorn fruit is used in jams, pies, drinks, and other foods. The oil extract of sea buckthorn fruit and seed is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth for up to 90 days. There isn't enough reliable information to know if sea buckthorn leaf is safe or what the side effects might be.

When applied to the skin: There isn't enough reliable information to know if sea buckthorn is safe. It might cause red or itchy skin in some people.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if sea buckthorn is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Children: Sea buckthorn is POSSIBLY SAFE when used orally for up to 6 weeks in children 1-7 years of age.

Bleeding disorder: Sea buckthorn might slow blood clotting when taken as a medicine. There is some concern that it might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.

Low blood pressure: Sea buckthorn might lower blood pressure when taken as a medicine. In theory, taking sea buckthorn might make blood pressure become too low in people with low blood pressure.

Surgery: Sea buckthorn might slow blood clotting when taken as a medicine. There is some concern that it might cause extra bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using sea buckthorn at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.



Moderate Interaction

Be cautious with this combination

  • Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) interacts with SEA BUCKTHORN

    Sea buckthorn might slow blood clotting. Taking sea buckthorn along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.
    Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others.



The appropriate dose of sea buckthorn depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for sea buckthorn. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
