Rosehip tea is made from steeping crushed or dried rosehips, which are the fruits of the rose plant. Following pollination of the flowers, rosehips begin to develop and are typically bulbous red fruits, ranging from the size of a cherry tomato to the size of drupe fruits. Provided you don’t prune back the flowering stems of your rose plant, the majority of species will produce rosehips of some kind.
Many of the antioxidants in rosehip tea are praised for their anti-cancer abilities. They seek out and neutralize free radicals before they can cause oxidative stress and inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.
Rosehip tea is known to have both laxative and diuretic properties, which can help the body eliminate toxins, and unwanted fats and salts in an efficient way. If you are struggling with constipation, low metabolism, or a weakened immune system, it can be a good idea to flush the toxins out and reduce the load on the kidneys and liver. This tea can help you do that by stimulating faster digestion and increasing the frequency of urination.
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.
