1. Boost immune system: Rosehips are rich in vitamin C. This helps to combat infections such as cold, flu, and coughs. Rosehips also contains many important antioxidants that are naturally anti-inflammatory. This helps to shield the immune cells from environmental damage and encourage the production of white blood cells.
2. Weight loss: Rosehips contain tiliroside, this helps to accelerate fat metabolism and improves the body utilization of glucose, which prevents fat from building up in the tissue and triggers fat burning.
3. Promote digestive health: Rosehips are rich in pectin; this allows it to act as a prebiotic. This is used as an indigestible fiber that is used in the gut to increase populations of healthy bacteria, aid digestion, and enhance the absorption of the valuable vitamin.
Avoid: Do not use it excessively. Do not use it during pregnancy.
