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.

I can only say wow
Sibu is more than I thought it would be , I been using it since the first day I got it , about 3 weeks now .My hair feels and looks amazing and my skin is less dry. I also see some growth in my hair . I know it has only been 3 weeks but I just ordered more and talked to TLC about next showing -looking for some deals. I do agree with other reviews about the size , it only takes 2 weeks for me to finish one bottle .
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Using this Sibu duo
Had the surgery in July instead of June. Surgery was on my kidney - having it lasered from the inside, to close up some of the kidney. Doctor told me it would be a 4-6 week recovery time. I would be off work for at least 3 weeks.Because the bottles don't last a full 60 days, I bought extra from Well.ca.Since buying this duo in April, I have religiously taken 2 tablets and 1 swig every morning - right up until my surgery.I must say that it does wonders for the internal organs. This is what I noticed. To fill 3 viles of blood it took less than 2 minutes and the color of the blood was a dark red (what it is suppose to be). I was sent home the next day (Saturday). I FELT the kidney get better because I had less back pain - that was Tuesday. I felt it get better on Thursday and Saturday. I was back to work on Monday (the 2 week - light duty of course). I still treated myself as if I had a really serious surgery - no heavy lifting etc.My doctor was pretty impressed. He said whatever your doing - keep doing it. He never heard of Sibu.The Sibu helped a lot with helping repair my kidney, along with a proper diet and lots of green tea and cranberry juice, I'm almost completely healed up! This is my 3rd week.There are some great health benefits to taking Sibu and I had the opportunity to see it 1st hand.No doubt in my mind now - its a permanent fixture/routine in my life.

Great Nails, Cuticles & Hair! Impressed!
from Waterloo, On
Stared drinking one ounce in the morning, so delicious! and taking 2 capsules daily, Within 1 week my nails started to grow and not tear, they are hard, growing beautifully and the cuticles look healthy too. I was on some medication that can make my hair look dry and fall out and I think my hair is starting to look and feel better after 3 weeks. It is kinda expensive especially for the drink as it doesnt take long to go thru 2 bottles. but I have to say I am hooked and I also think it is making my joints feel better too. Will be LONG TIME USER!!!! Thanks,
This combination works
Sibu has been working for me for several years but I didn't know how important it was until I became seriously ill last November.My specialist didn't think I should continue with my supplements and I stopped all for three months.After becoming very ill and continuing with many visits to the ER, I made the decision to proceed with caution in adding suppliments.I am a Health Care Professional who has believed in the effectiveness of many modalities.After resuming Sibu capsules and juice, there was a noticeable improvement in the strength of my nails and hair. My skin which had been very thin and dry appeared to be healthier and less fragile.This was surprising because I had to remain on a very damaging medication which effected all body systems.Today, as I fight this health problem, my hair and nails look great -thanks I believe to Sibu.I use Sibu soap, serum and oil for my grooming.Love this product

Great healthy product
I purchased this as an AutoDelivery when they were at the TSC.My hair and skin is beautiful and I don't notice any difference there (using Triaxon, Isomers, and Elysse lines), but where I have noticed the effects is in my nails. They are stronger, harder and very healthy looking (nail tips are white).So, I'm guessing that it is working and assuming my organs are getting healthy too...we'll see when I have surgery on my kidney in June...and how quickly I recover and heal up.The pills you just swollow, but the liquid has a lemony, tangy flavor to it...a bit of sourness to it and I like that, so I don't mind it at all.I take the pills and liquid every morning.I will stay on this. As long as I continue to eat healthy and exercise (I don't smoke or drink), I feel I will greatly benefit by taking this product - anyone can with a healthy life style.NOTE:I agree with the previous reviewer that they need to 're-calculate' the amount of bottles required for a 60 day AutoDelivery or 60 day supply of pills. To supplement the additional time, I've had to buy extra from Wellca...another 2 bottles...and that's just 'taking a swig' out of the bottle every morning with my pills.This product in my mind is certainly worth trying - can't go wrong.
I thought I would give this a try
from PRINCE GEORGE
good price but not enough of the juice product to last you the whole 60 days.The pepole at SIBU needs to give us more of the juice product for it to last the 60 days, put this in a bigger boltte.I take 2 oz of the juice every day and 2 gel pills at night.I have been taking this now for 2 weeks and I am on the sec bottle aready ,but still on the first bottle of gel pills.you do the math!but i do have nice nails, hair & skin is looking real good to.
