Description: The Tibetan Himalayas, the land is majestic and beautiful—a spiritual place where, despite the perilous environment, many journey seeking enlightenment. In one of the most remote locations on the planet, the most tenacious and nutrient-dense species of sea buckthorn grows in wild abundance. The conditions are treacherous and unforgiving. And where other plants falter, the sea buckthorn berry endures and flourishes. Just as pressure makes beautiful diamonds, extreme weather conditions, high altitudes and rocky soil create the optimum situation for the most nutrient dense sea buckthorn in the world. High in the Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry (ssp. Turkestanica) fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea berry (sea buckthorn) is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it is the world’s richest source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, a fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.
Sea buckthorn has an impressive nutritional profile that indirectly heals and fortifies the entire body. With 14 essential vitamins, omega’s 3, 6, 9, the rare omega 7, super charged anti oxidants, hundreds of other nutrients, and anti-inflammation properties.

Dragon Tea House sea buckthorn berries are made from a choice selection of Himalayan sea buckthorn berries grown and harvested with the utmost care. And because our premium sea buckthorn berries are harvested and processed the same day, the nutritive integrity of each precious berry is maintained.
To preserve the tremendous potential contained in each berry and the many sea buckthorn benefits, it is crucial that these berries are collected in the predawn hours to protect them from the relentless UV rays and lock in the greatest nutritive value. That same morning, the sea buckthorn is processed in the local villages at our processing facilities. The village harvesters painstakingly separate leaves from the berries.
