Rosehips are the 'fruit' of the wild rose plant providing high levels of phenolic and flavonoid antioxidants. Just 10 grams of Rosehips provide up to 200 milligrams of Vitamin C and bioflavonoid antioxidants which neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals.
It is also known to have both laxative and diuretic properties, which can help eliminate toxins, constipation, or a weakened immune system by relieving the load on the kidneys and liver. The carotenoids and flavonoids make rosehips a powerful pain reliever and it is also used as a herbal remedy for treatment of skin conditions, such as wrinkles, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, and acne.
Preferably prepared with a hint of peppermint and sweetened with stevia, it makes for a healthy and fruity tea experience.
