Powerhouse of Herbs
Rosehip tea is one of the oldest natural remedies in many countries across the world. It is a powerhouse of an herb with a wide array of benefits to our health and beauty. It has a delicate, floral flavour that is slightly sweet with a distinct tart aftertaste.
Rich in antioxidants
Antioxidants are substances that protect or reduce cell damage caused by molecules called free radicals. Rose hips are rich in antioxidants that can help protect against cell damage from free radicals.
One of the most impressive benefits of rose hips is their high concentration of vitamin C. Compared with other fruits and vegetables, rose hips offer one of the highest levels of vitamin C. This vitamin, along with other compounds in rosehip tea, helps strengthen and protect your immune system.
Lowers Risks of Cardiovascular Diseases
Apart from the high levels of antioxidants present in rose hip, studies have shown that leucoanthocyanins and polyphenolic compounds in rosehip tea can lower the risk of heart diseases. It is also rich in lycopene, which has been directly linked to lower the occurrences of cardiovascular diseases.
Reduce inflammation and pain
Rosehip tea is rich in anti-inflammatory compounds, including galactolipids. Studies done on rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis showed that rosehip tea can significantly improve mobility and reduce inflammation, thus improving the quality of life and lowering oxidative stress in those inflamed tissues.
