More than 40 volatile compounds with pharmacological effects (including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, radioprotective activity and improvement of cardiovascular risk factors, etc) are detected in the sea buckthorn. The most thoroughly investigated parts of sea buckthorn are berries – their juice and oil, but less is known about the bioactives of the other plant parts. This study aims to determine antioxidative (AO) and antiradical (AR) properties of sea buckthorn sprouts. The study results show differences between spring and autumn sprouts’ collection as well as water and 70% ethanol extracts. Further, in vivo research needs to be done to provide a full understanding of sea buckthorn sprouts’ AO and AR effects.
