The seed oil of Hippophae rhamnoides markedly inhibits the rise of MDA in liver of mice and rats induced by CCl4, AAP and ethyl alcohol, decreases significantly the activity of SGPT and SGOT, and markedly checks the depletion of GSH in liver of mice induced by AAP. The microscopic and electron-microscopic examination has shown that the seed oil can lighten liver injury.
