Got some words down about sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) and its uses in garden and medicinary. Not done, but it's a start.

I know I feel a lot better ever since I stop using fish oil and started using hemp seeds in my diet. I have lost weight, have more energy and I'm always in a better mood. Thank You for taking the time to explain fish oil. Hope you have a great day.

Please laugh more! And share your favorite funny movies!
Watching a funny movie or sitcom that produces laughter has a positive effect on vascular function and is opposite to that observed after watching a movie that causes mental stress.
