Vitamin B12 in sea buckthorn
Only foods derived from animals such as milk, liver or meat contain vitamin B 12 - this is the general level of knowledge up to now. This, however, also only applies if the animals are kept in a way which is appropriate to their species: because vitamin B 12 can only be formed if the intestinal flora of the animals is natural and healthy. In conventional agriculture , however, this is so badly destroyed by the antibiotics which are fed to the animals that supermarket meat may not contain any vitamin B12 whatsoever.
Dr. Pandalis Research (EU Patent: No. 079 92 37) was the first to discover that sea buckthorn skins of certain biotopes contain a lot of vitamin B12: and, by means of the symbiosis of sea buckthorn with special bacteria, a vitamin B12 concentration occurs in the seed skin of sea buckthorn, which was previously only known in liver. Not every sea buckthorn bush, therefore, is a supplier of vitamin B12!
Very recent analyses of the freshly harvested raw material have again confirmed the high content of up to 60 mcg vitamin B12 per 100 g sample. And another piece of information for those hungry for knowledge: our classification procedure for vitamin B12 is based on an antigen-antibody reaction (ELISA test). Therefore a guarantee is provided that only "genuine" vitamin B12 is recorded and not substances analogous to vitamin B12.
