Bioactive compounds demonstrating antioxidant activity were analyzed in berries and leaves of nine cultivars of sea buckthorn (Hippophaë rhamnoides L.) of various ripening times. Total polyphenols were ranging between 0.70–3.62 g−1 (berries) and 1.88–3.72 g−1 (leaves). Leaves were significantly richer source of total flavonoids (14.40–49.44 mg−1) in comparison with berries (0.55–4.11 mg−1). Phenolic compounds, carotenoids and vitamins were determined using high-performance liquid chromatography with a diode array detection. The content of vitamin C was 0.98–3.65−1 in berries and 22.81–46.32−1 in leaves, vitamin E content was 6.98–29.91−1 in berries and 71.54–153.99−1 in leaves. Distribution of individual phenolic compounds varied, their total content in berries was considerably lower (76.1–205.2−1) than in leaves (1477.7–8709.0−1). Regarding antioxidant activity, Raisa and Slovan (berries) and Bojan and Maslicnaja (leaves) were evaluated as the best cultivars.
