High in the Himalayas, there is a bight orange berry that has nourished generations of ancient mountain dwellers. Scientists call this wholesome berry Hippophae rhamnoides, but Himalayan natives call it "sea buckthorn". The primary ingredient of Sibu Beauty products can be found clinging to rock walls and growing along glacier-fed streams at elevations from 10,000 to 12,000 feet above sea level. Considered the roof of the world, the Himalayas are home to this willow-leaved, thorn and berry-laden plant.
Sibu founder Bruce McMullin stumbled across this unique fruit white visiting the region and was inspired to create a company based on sea buckthorn's remarkable properties and ancient folklore. Sibu is also known as the "Sea Buckthorn Company". McMullin and co-founder Ryan Lewis began the company by using science that was readily available. They found hundreds of studies which lauded the extraordinary levels of vitamin C & E, essential fatty acids and dozens of other bioactive substances found in sea buckthorn. Over 120 specific studies on seabuckthorn and countless studies on the biological properties found in Sea Buckthorn have shown that this little berry helps to promote health. Sea Buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit because it features a variety of powerful anti-oxidants and is the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9.
Before sea buckthorn can be used to create a product, it must make a remarkable journey. Just as has been done for generations, villagers living high in the Himalayas harvest the sea buckthorn berries in the early hours of the morning. Only the berries that are perfectly ripe are chosen and gathered into cloth sack and then into large tubs to be sorted and immediately processed. Once the berries are picked, the processing time clock begins. Sea buckthorn berries must be picked in the cool hours of the morning before the intense radiation of the sun can rob the berries of their nutritive properties. Harvesters - more than 2500 people employed by Sibu - have only six to eight weeks to gather this precious fruit before it loses its potency. Because of Sibu's commitment to fair trade - those two months of employment provide enough income to sustain their families throughout the harsh winter. To capture it in its most potent state, the berry will be pureed that same morning in the local village where harvesters and their families have lived for hundreds of years. This is where ancient processing techniques meet modern technology. The berries are made into a traditional puree and then promptly delivered to Sibu's processing facilities, frozen and sent to Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sibu has spent a great amount of time and effort to bring you the best sea buckthorn berries available in the world. Whenever possible, the company uses packaging, literature and shipping materials that are easily recyclable, met Forest Stewardship Council guidelines and promote a greener, more earth-friendly environment.

By Long time TSC shopper
I use this product for sleeping. I take the recommended amount before I go to bed in the evening. It gives me a sound and peaceful sleep. When I don't take it I don't sleep as well. It doesn't let me sleep all through the night, but the hours I do sleep are very restful. I wake up once, maybe twice during the night but go back to sleep right away.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Need bigger bottles!
I have been using this product for approximately 2 months and have already noticed that my nails are alot stronger and have also been feeling much better and have more energy. I would like to see this product in a larger size bottle since 1 oz a day is fine but if you drink 2 ozs for day you run out way before the 50 days. I will continue to buy this product and hope to see it in the larger size really soon!

I was sceptical but...
I have a very sensitive stomach. I read up on the benefits of injesting sea buckthorn berry and decided to give it a try as one of the benefits that was listed was improved digestion. Oh my gosh! Since the Sibu supplement elixir, I have not had to drink that awful white chalky stomach medicine after dinner. I am also taking the gel capsules. I noticed my nails are harder and just this evening at dinner my friends commented how nice my nails looked. I wore no nail polish. Wonderful product and I am stocking up on the blockbuster as I do not want to run out.
I am going for more
It has been a very good digestive aid and I feel like I'm getting more nutrients easily.
definitely helps digestion
I found the product really helped my digestion and I feel like I'm adding nutrients easily. I agree that it won't last as long as indicated. I will run out of the second bottle long before 50 days.

Yummie In My Tummie!
I bought this and was a tad skeptical, but I thought, "what the heck, migh as well give it a try". After trying it, I must admit that I was surprised by the taste. It is yummie, and tart! If you like tart things, like granny smith apples, then you'll enjoy this juice. I haven't been taking it long enough to notice a difference in my health, but I feel good about taking it and feel that I'm doing my body and my health a huge favour. I will keep taking this liquid supplement. TASHI EVERYONE!
I ordered this as a showstopper a while back and was reluctant as to the taste. I must say that it does taste good. I was pleasantly suprised. I did feel more energized and felt good about what I was ingesting. I would highly recommend this product.

Needs to be larger sizing.
from Canada,SK,MOOSE JAW
I have been using using this product for a while now...and not really seeing any benefit yet. I amgoing to use it longer though, and see if it works. What I am dis-appointed about is the amount. I ordered the 60 day supply only to find out if I take one ounce a day, I will be more than10 days short! And if I take the recommended amount of 3 ounces a day the 60 day supply will only last about 18 days! That would make it way too expensive for even just myself...let alone my spouse as well. For a 60 day supply at 3 ounces a day the bottles have to be 90 ounces each....NOT 25.35 ounces as they are now. Very deceiving...I thought.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
