Rose hip tea with honey was recommended in Bancke's Herbal of 1525 for the feeble, sick and choleric person. Even though the reason for the health benefit of the beverage was not discovered until recently, it is now known that one ounce of concentrated rose hip contains about as much Vitamin C as a dozen or two oranges. During World War II, rose hip jelly was an important substitute for citrus fruits while international shipping lanes were disrupted. It has also been determined that rose hips provide B-complex vitamins A, D, and E, are high in organic iron and calcium, and contain measurable amounts of potassium, sulphur, silica, and zinc, as well as fructose and tannins. The remedy for what ails you, curl up on the couch with a good book and a quilt and you'll be ready for winter.
