Rosehip- The Healthy Fruits Of Autumn

Editor   August 15, 2017   Comments Off on Rosehip- The Healthy Fruits Of Autumn

The plant, which is still called dogrose, is well known in Europe, West Asia and North Africa. It grows at the edges of the hedges and in the woods, but often we see them as they pass the country road. The plant is up to 3m high and is winterproof.

The fruit of the rosehip has been eaten for thousands of years. From the fruit different marmalades and jams are cooked, but also as tea, syrup, vinegar or wine you can enjoy the precious fruit.

In late summer and autumn the full fruits of the dogrose are harvested

The rose hip is undoubtedly a very widespread and well-used medicinal plant, which repeatedly proves its health qualities. The high vitamin C content and the pleasant sour taste makes the rose hip a popular nutritional supplement. It is not by chance that the little red fruit bears the name”queen of the medicinal plants.”

Most often we get the rose hips in a processed or dried state. The valuable substances are not lost despite heating. Our body gets plenty of calcium, phosphorus and iron by drinking rose hip tea. This tea strengthens the body’s resistance and prevents colds and colds.

The processing of the fruits is somewhat tedious, but it is worth it

Hagebuttentee can be found in the drugstore or in the pharmacy. The tea is rich in vitamin C and very sour. Drink with honey for two reasons: 1) The tea tastes sweetened better and 2) Through the honey, the acidity of the tea becomes slightly milder. This is more pleasant for people with sensitive stomach for example. The tea is prescribed during severe diarrhea. But if you overdose, you can achieve the opposite effect.
