Effects on cardiovascular diseases
Sea Buckthorn can help to prevent and treat ischemic cardiovascular diseases: coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, arrhythmia, myocardial ischemia and hypoxia, heart failure and other diseases. Sea buckthorn has a good effect on myocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, chronic heart dysfunction, it also has a good effect on improving heart function, relieving chest tightness, palpitations, breath shortness and other symptoms.
Clinically, sea buckthorn flavonoids and other phenolic compounds, β-sitosterol and betaine can reduce high blood pressure, soften blood vessels, prevent atherosclerosis, reduce blood viscosity, inhibit platelet aggregation, improve blood circulation, lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride, lowering low-density lipoprotein, removing deposits from the blood vessel wall, restoring blood vessel elasticity, increasing coronary blood flow, reducing myocardial oxygen consumption, and enhancing heart function.
Sea buckthorn flavonoids can right against arrhythmia and myocardial ischemia, reduce myocardial infarct size, relieve angina, and improve cardiac function by scavenging free radicals.
Effects on cerebrovascular diseases
Sea buckthorn has very good prevention and relief for ischemic cerebrovascular diseases: cerebral ischemia, cerebral thrombosis, cerebral infarction, cerebral arteriosclerosis and the headache caused by it, dizziness, hands and feet numbness, slow movements, weakness of limbs, stiffness and other symptoms. Sea buckthorn also has a good rehabilitation effect on symptoms such as hemiplegia, aphasia and dementia.
Total flavonoids of sea buckthorn can directly remove superoxide radicals and hydroxyl radicals, which can reduce high blood pressure, lower high blood fat, lower blood viscosity, inhibit excessive platelet aggregation, soften blood vessels, improve blood circulation, prevent arteriosclerosis, and improve blood and oxygen supply to the brain.
Effects on metabolism and immune system
Total flavonoids of sea buckthorn can modulate the immune system, and have obvious regulatory effects on humoral immunity and cellular immunity, as well as certain anti-allergic effects and enhance the body’s disease resistance. Sea buckthorn flavonoids have the effect of eliminating free radicals in the human body and improving the body’s immunity. Therefore, it has a good effect on various immune system diseases such as Immune dysfunction. In addition, sea buckthorn also plays a role in improving the body’s metabolic function. Flavonoids also regulate thyroid function and restore hyperthyroidism.
Anti-tumor and anti-cancer effects
The bioactive components of sea buckthorn, such as anthocyanin, lignin, coumarin and serotonin, have obvious anticancer effect. It has a certain inhibitory and killing effect on cancer cells in the human body, and also has the effect of blocking carcinogenic factors. Moreover, by improving the autoimmune function of cancer patients, it can enhance the resistance to cancer, reduce the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and promote the recovery of cancer patients, especially for gastric cancer, esophagus cancer, rectal cancer, liver cancer and other digestive system cancer.
Effects on respiratory diseases
Sea buckthorn has the functions of relieving cough and asthma, promoting lung function and removing phlegm in traditional medical theory. It has a good effect on chronic pharyngitis, bronchitis, sore throat, asthma, cough and other respiratory diseases. All the functions are related to the anti-inflammation effect of flavonoids, which can also promote capillary blood circulation.
Effects on digestive diseases
Sea buckthorn contains a lot of nutrients such as amino acids and organic acids, as well as chlorogenic acid and other phenolic compounds, which can promote and stimulate gastric acid secretion. Therefore, sea buckthorn has the functions of improving digestion and helping stagnation. Sea buckthorn also has excellent effects on dyspepsia, abdominal distension, abdominal pain, gastritis, stomach and duodenal ulcer, enteritis, chronic constipation, etc.
Organic acids such as malic acid and oxalic acid in sea buckthorn can alleviate the toxic effects of antibiotics and other drugs, and protect the liver. Phospholipids such as lecithin in sea buckthorn are active components that promote cell metabolism, improve liver function, resist fatty liver, and resist liver cirrhosis. In addition, sea buckthorn oil has obvious protective effects on heart, liver and bone marrow.
Anti-inflammation, tissue regeneration promotion
Sea buckthorn oil extracted from sea buckthorn is rich in VE, carotene, carotenoids, β-sitosterol, unsaturated fatty acids, etc., which can promote human metabolism, help the recovery of damaged tissues, and alleviate the inflammation of subcutaneous tissue, and promote the ulcer healing.
