The rosehip, cultivated by a Moldovan producer, was recently tested in a specialized laboratory in Italy. The test results showed that it has a very high concentration of vitamin C - 12.478 mg, which is much higher than other rosehip products found on the local market. The rosehip also have a higher content of carotenoids, propectins and flavanoids.
The main activity of RoseLine company from the village of Taul, in Donduseni district is the cultivation of two types of rosehips with a high content of vitamin C, as well as their processing. The company currently offers rosehip tea, dried rosehip pulp and several varieties of rosehip powder (with chokeberry, raspberry, walnuts or hawthorn). The powder is obtained using the method of fine dispersion and can be added to cereals, cottage cheese, yogurt, salads, baked goods, smoothies or other dishes. The powder can also be used as a tea infusion, but in order to preserve all its vitamins, it is not recommended to use boiling water. The recommended temperature of poured water is approx. 75 ° C. This powder is a real superfood that can be consumed daily, including by children from the age of 3.
Why rosehip and other products rich in vitamin C are so useful?
Rosehip contains 50 times more vitamin C than, for example, orange or lemon. Rosehip tea and other similar products are a reliable ally in the fight against seasonal diseases. The red berries of this plant are rich in antioxidants and contain many other vital elements such as iron, phosphorus, chromium, potassium, magnesium, carotene, riboflavin, rutin, and manganese. Rosehip essential oil is successfully used in the cosmetic industry and is one of the best skin care products.
The beneficial properties of the fruits, roots and seeds of rosehips can also help in the treatment of seasonal vitamin deficiency and even atherosclerosis. In addition, people who regularly use rose hips have practically no problems with the cardiovascular system.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for our health. It helps prevent colds and flu, speeds up the regeneration of tissues, bones and blood vessels, and enhances the body's ability to synthesize calcium and other minerals. Vitamin C also stimulates the production of leukocytes, which represent the main defence against viruses and bacteria and is involved in the production of collagen, therefore promoting tissue repair and regeneration. Doctors recommend to consume foods rich in vitamin C, especially during the season of viral infections, and the recommended daily intake is 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women.
It is recommended to get the vitamin C from various foods (rather than supplements), in this way we consume other important nutrients. Besides rosehip, the best sources of vitamin C are sea buckthorn, citrus fruits, green vegetables, sweet and hot peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, peas, quince, black currant, and many other fresh fruits and vegetables. It is important to note that after cooking vegetables and fruits, most of the vitamin C they contain is lost.
The rosehip powder and other RoseLine products are available online, and Madein.md confidently recommend you to try them. Usually autumn is the time of the year, when viral infections are more common, and an increased intake of vitamin C will strengthen our immune system and make our body more resilient.
