Rose hips are often underestimated. Yet they have had a firm place in naturopathy for centuries. This is due to the enormous wealth of vitamins and valuable secondary plant substances. Above all, vitamin C, which is many times more concentrated in rose hips than in lemons, contributes among other things to
- less tiredness and fatigue
- a normal function of the immune system
- a normal energy metabolism
- Protect the body cells from oxidative stress
- Formation of collagen, which in turn is important for the normal function of skin, bones or blood vessels
There are many more beneficial nutrients in the rosehip, such as B vitamins, minerals and fiber. Recently, science has paid special attention to the secondary plant substances in rose hip, especially the flavonoid rutin and the fatty acid molecule galactolipid, which is found mainly in the kernels of the rose hip. Especially reliable: Organic quality from Europe
Bio rose hip capsules from Dreikraut meet the strict criteria of the EU organic seal. For this purpose, specially protected areas in remote high altitudes in the Balkans are designated for rosehip harvesting. Only wild growing fruits are used, which are picked by hand. Since the bushes are neither fertilized nor sprayed, you can rely on a particularly natural quality. To be on the safe side, all batches are nevertheless tested for harmful substances in the laboratory before they receive the organic seal.
