Native dwellers of America had used rosehips as a tea for thousands of years, and when tea had been drunk, the hips were added to soups because there was just too much nutrition in a rosehip to let it to waste.
Besides rosehip tea has a refreshing tart taste, rosehips contain significantly higher levels of vitamin C than citrus fruits. In addition, rosehips are a rich source of organic antioxidants, pectin, vitamins A, E, selenium, manganese, and B-complex vitamins. Rosehip also includes trace amounts of magnesium, potassium, sulfur and silicon. As researchers say rosehip tea is as a real nutritional powerhouse.
