Sea buckthorn is a shrub that can grow up to 6 meters high. The plant grows near the coast and you encounter it by a walk in most dune landscapes, where you can stick to it if you are not careful. The sea buckthorn has a number of positive properties in the form of its yellow or orange-colored berries, which have a sour taste. The berries are attributed to a number of health promoting properties and have a very high content of vitamin C and a number of other vitamins. Some call the bearer of “the lemon of the North” and for several thousands of years the plant has been used against high blood pressure, heart problems and not least stomach ulcers.

A single berry contains more vitamin C than a large orange.
