Why you should be drinking rosehip tea - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

There are so many reasons to drink rosehip tea! It's linked to many health benefits - improved immunity, heart health, weight loss, and skin anti-aging. Rosehips are an excellent mild blood cleanser, support circulatory health, adrenal health and connective tissue health.

Rosehips are very high in antioxidants
Anti-oxidants protect against free radicals that damage the cells of the body. Rosehips contain high levels of polyphenols, carotenoids, and vitamins C and E, all of which have powerful antioxidant properties.

Rosehips can fight skin aging!
Rosehip tea is high in vitamin C which, along with vitamin A and lycopene, promotes collagen synthesis and can protect skin against sun damage. An 8 week study showed rosehip extract improved elasticity, moisture and wrinkles.

Rosehip supports your immune system
Rosehips have been shown to have among the highest vitamin C content of all fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C stimulates the production of white blood cells, protecting against infection. 

Rosehip can aid weightloss
New research suggest that rosehip extract may be a good for preventing obesity and reducing visceral fat. 

It's cost effective!
Better than artificial vitamin C supplements and so much cheaper, rosehip tea is a cost effective way to improve health.

It is delicious!
Rosehips have a delicate, floral taste with a very slight tart flavour that makes it perfect for hot tea, cold drinks, jams, jellies, and syrups. The healthiest way to consume it is fresh rosehip granules seeped into an infusion.

 

NB It's important you buy organic rosehips or collect yourself from an organic source.
