Sea Buckthorn comes from the sea buckthorn plant, Hippophae Rhamnoides  which literally means ‘shiny horse’. The ancient Greeks named the plant such noting the extraordinary vitality and condition of horses grazing on it, despite otherwise very difficult conditions. While it has a long history of traditional use, recent research has really cast a spotlight on sea buckthorn, the berries earning the label of ‘super fruit’.

Sea Buckthorn contains an extraordinary array of bioactive nutrients which work synergistically throughout the body, nourishing the fine mucosal membranes which line the entire digestive tract (including the stomach) and respiratory tract, and defending against daily stresses.

Uniquely for a plant, Sea Buckthorn contains all of the Omega oils -3, -6, -7 and -9. While much is made of Sea Buckthorn’s rare Omega-7 content, it is perhaps the remarkable profile of anti-oxidant compounds which most actively contribute to the plants overall benefit. In addition to high levels of vitamins, Sea Buckthorn contains many more unique and sought after anti-oxidants including carotenoids (which give the berries their orange colour), phytosterols, flavonoids and phenolic acids. Anti-oxidants defend against oxidative damage, something the body it continuously subject to but is increased greatly by stressors such as travel and competition, illness, anxiety, strenuous exercise, allergens etc.

Sea Buckthorn for Horses is brought to you by The British Seabuckthorn Company. It is an exceptionally high quality product, sourced in the EU, which combines the individual benefits of the berry seed, pulp and juice, with absolutely no added water.

S Payne from Bucks -

We have used Seabuckthorn on a number of our horses, in particular an older horse who had lost some condition over last winter. All of them look fantastic, with great coats and all are retaining condition. Highly recommend

Neil King from Marlborough -

I have been using the BSC Seabuckthorn for the last 5 years now. I now see far fewer gastric problems and consequently our horses have better appetites, which in turn means less acid build up in the gut.

Pat Murphy from Lambourn -

I have been very pleased with Sea Buckthorn gastric supplement. I used the supplement on a horse which looked poor and had little appetite when it arrived here from the sales. Within a very short period, the horse's condition and appearance changed dramatically - its coat looked amazing. The Sea Buckthorn turned this horse inside out and I am happy to recommend wholeheartedly the product

H Russell from Cumbria -

I used Sea buckthorn on a pointer which was showing signs of stress in training and was not keeping weight on. After vet checks, we could find nothing wrong and a friend suggested SBT. Have to say, it was a bit of a 'give it a go' purchase as I could not think what else to give him. Wow, what a difference! Within 2 weeks the horse had obviously put on weight, was less concerned both in and out of the box - much more settled and not losing so much condition after a run. We are converted!

D James from Hereford -

I used Seabuckthorn on a couple of youngsters in the lead up to a sale. Made a quick and sustained difference to their appearance, demeanor and coat
