1. Where do pine nuts
are still intrigued by the fact that this is one of the most
common questions asked by our site visitors.
We know that it's hard to believe, but pine
nuts (botanically, they are seeds, not nuts, but we refer
to them using their common name) come from… (surprise!) pine
trees. There is a number of different species in the pine
family, and all of them produce cones containing pine nuts.
Pines grow all over the world, inhabiting vast
territories in North America, Europe, and Asia. Their seeds
(nuts) vary in size, flavor and oil content. An excellent
source of information about different varieties of pine nuts
and their many uses is provided by our good friend Ms. Penny
Frazier ("Pinon Penny") at www.pinenut.com.
Siberian pine nuts come from Siberian pines (Pinus Sibirica)
– beautiful, mighty trees growing in the pristine forests
Siberia – a remote region of Russia famous for its lush
forests, crystal-clear rivers and lakes, as well as the remarkably
vibrant health of its inhabitants. Because Siberian pines
grow in the most northerly locations compared to all other
pines, their nuts contain record quantities of unique fatty
acids and other nutrients of exceptional value for human health.

4. Why is your company
called Siberian Tiger Naturals?
When we first became familiar with the story
of the Siberian tiger (Panthera Tigris Altaica) –
a beautiful, awe-inspiring, and unique creature – we were
so impressed and inspired that we named our company after
Siberian tigers are the largest of the living cats. Their
average weight is 500-700 pounds, and the length of their
body is 8-10 feet. The record weight for this species is 845
pounds. These animals can be easily recognized by their remarkable
coat, which is long, dense and very warm.
Siberian tigers are endangered. Once freely
roaming across the Russian Far East, the Koreas and China,
they were hunted to the brink of extinction in the early 1900's.
Having recovered somewhat in the 20th century, the Siberian
tiger, once numbering as many as 2,000, now has an estimated
population of only 300 to 400 in the wild.
At present, Russia is the only country in the
world still harboring a significant population of Siberian
tigers in the wild. A system of national parks and wildlife
refuges has been established in Siberia to help the tigers
survive and raise their young.
There is a number of Russian and international
organizations that have developed special programs to help
save the Siberian tiger. All of them need you help and support.
We think that you should know that every purchase of Siberian
Tiger Naturals healing extra virgin oils supports the goal
of saving this magnificent Northern cat from extinction, and
bringing its population to a sustainable level. One of the
most well-known and reputable international organizations
working to help the Siberian Tiger is the World
Wildlife Fund (WWF). It would be really wonderful if all
of us could join forces in this important effort.
