Exotic Tea BOOSTS Your Heart Health
I’m a coffee man, myself.
I drink it because I like it. And it also happens to come with some impressive health benefits as well.
But if coffee just isn’t your “cup of tea,” don’t worry.
There’s a super healthy exotic tea that can help combat everything from blood sugar problems… to high blood pressure… to joint pain (and that’s just the beginning).
Read on for 5 impressive health benefits of this little-known exotic tea.
It’s an herbal tea called rosehip tea, and it’s made from rose hips – those small round “pseudo-fruits” located just below a rose petal.
Rosehips are extremely high in antioxidants (which help reduce cell damage), they have high levels of polyphenols, and they’re a great source of vitamin A, E, and C.
In fact, these tiny flowers have been found to have the highest concentration of vitamin C of all fruits and vegetables.
These nutrients (plus a whole lot of others) are responsible for the long list of health benefits associated with the flower.
Here are 5 of the best.
#1 Protects your heart.
One study shows that consuming a drink containing 40 grams of rosehip powder every day for six weeks improved blood pressure and LDL cholesterol levels. Other studies have shown the benefits of vitamin C for improving numerous risk factors for heart disease, which is especially noteworthy considering rosehip’s impressive vitamin C content.
#2 Helps with weight loss.
Believe it or not, rosehips can even help with weight loss. In one study, 32 overweight adults who took 100 mg of rosehip extract every day for 12 weeks experienced a significant decrease in body weight and stomach fat. Decreasing tummy fat is important because it’s highly inflammatory and plays a major role in the development of metabolic syndrome.
#3 Prevents type 2 diabetes.
Studies show that supplementing with a rosehip powder can help decrease blood sugar levels, fasting insulin levels, and fat cell growth in the liver (preventing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) – all major risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
#4 Reduces pain.
Rosehip seems especially effective in alleviating osteoarthritis pain. Supplementing with 5 grams of rosehip extract has been shown to significantly reduce pain and increase hip mobility in people with osteoarthritis. One study even showed that it reduced pain in 65% of people using it.
#5 Fights aging skin.
Yes, this exotic pseudo-flower can even help you look younger. People who took 3 grams of rosehip extract for eight weeks saw a reduction in crow’s feet and an improvement in skin moisture and elasticity. This isn’t surprising since vitamin C promotes the production of collagen and protects your skin cells from damage – two keys to youthful skin.
Rosehip tea is a bit tart, so you might want to add a natural sweetener like honey or agave. Of if you prefer coffee (like I do), you can still obtain its benefits from an herbal extract.
