Anybody uses it?
According to some sources, it's almost a "miracle food", looots of vitamin C & vitamin E. http://www.livestrong.com/article/286653-the-nutritional-value-of-sea-buckthorn/
However, I cannot find omega-3 / omega-6 profile for oil.
Do you have any experience with it? Any ideas about omegas ratios?

Sea Buckthorn is a bushy plant with little orange berries growing close to the stalk. The juice is delicious and popular in eastern europe and Russia. If you can find a russian or ukrainian grocery near you they will have it for way cheaper.
If you are really curious and have space to garden it's very easy to grow. I have planted a lot of it because it makes a fast hedge, fixes nitrogen, animals like it and I like it. There are a few other plants in the same family that also have nice berries. If you would like to plant some you need to get 1 male for every 8 female plants. There only real requirements are decent drainage. So throw some sand/gravel down if it's a wet spot. They will do fine in USDA zones 3-9.
Here is a great nursery that does mail order and carries them. They also have some more info if you just want to read up a little.
