The anti-inflammatory and anti-ulcer properties of b-sitosterol-b-D-glucosides, usorlic acid and betaine promote ulcer healing, prevent spread and inhibit erosion. b-carotene, vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids stimulate cell metabolism at site and repair of injuries.

Together they also inhibit platelet agglutination and prevent thrombosis.
Sitosterol is one of the materials forming cell membrane and it stimulates metabolism. Sitosterol combines cholesterol with foods, and thus reducing serum cholesterol. b-sitosterol also effectively prevents arteriosclerosis.
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant, promoting metabolism, preventing oxidation of high-density cholesterol in the serum, thus inhibiting and reducing cholesterol settlement along the blood vessel wall. It also prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids and enhances immunity.
Phosphatides and triterpenoids inhibit cholesterol formation, thus prevents lipid formation, and helps its removal, etc.
Seabuckthorn seed oil has tonic effects to cerebral cardiovascular systems. Total flavonoids increase blood flow of the coronary artery and nutrients in the blood supply to heart muscles, lower oxygen consumption, strengthen muscle contraction, thus improving the heart function and to increase the anti-hypoxia under normal or below normal blood pressure. Sitosterol softens the blood vessels, and increases their tenacity, improves its elasticity, thus preventing hardening (arteriosclerosis). Vitamins E and other antioxidants remove wastes including peroxides, ailing and dead cells from the blood, and void damages the wastes may do to the artery walls. 5-serotonin and betaine protect the cerebral cardiovascular functions by comprehensive regulation and coordination of the nervous, endocrine and the immune systems.
Experiments show seabuckthorn seed oil reduces liver damage by alcohol, parasetamol and carbon tetrachloride, a strong poison to the liver. It also has a preventive property to fatty liver.
