Sea Buckthorn juice has been shown to inhibit the growth of certain cancer cells.
A Canadian study published in the journal Anticancer Research concluded that sea buckthorn juice, along with certain other fruit and berry juices, effectively inhibited the growth of numerous cancer cell lines, such as those of stomach, prostate, intestinal and breast cancer. This anti-cancer activity was attributed to the ability of the fruit and berry juices to induce cell-cycle arrest, rather than to induce apoptosis. In a nut shell, this means that sea buckthorn juice was capable of halting the series of events that trigger cancerous cells to divide and multiply. *1
A second study, published in the journal of Experimental Oncology back in 2004, reported that sea buckthorn juice was useful in protecting lab mice from side effects of Cisplatin. Cisplatin is a commonly known chemotherapy drug used to treat several types of cancers and tumours, -including lung cancer, ovarian cancer, lymphomas, and germ cell tumours.*2
