Rosa Mosqueta Tea - Rosa canina L.
Used part: Bark of pseudofruit
Also known as canine rose, rosehip, rose, wild rose, queen of flowers, wild rose or dog rose, the Rosa Mosqueta is a family of rosaceae and has been used for medicinal purposes for a long time. Universal symbol of beauty and love, roses are cultivated for more than three thousand years, symbolizing, when white, the most innocent love, and when red, a love more intense and passionate. Pink roses symbolize a simpler and happier love, while the yellow ones represent friendship, ambition and jealousy.
"Rose" is a word derived from the Greek, rondon, which means red. Its most curious name, "dog rose" or "canine rose" comes from the use of the plant for the treatment of rabid dogs. Another curiosity about the roses is that, during the period of World War II, English soldiers and civilians used it as a natural supplement for vitamin C replacement.
Rose bush (Rosa rubiginosa affinis), also known as canine rose, wild rose and queen of flowers, is a wild plant native to the East, widely used in cosmetics and natural medicine due to the benefits provided to the skin. However, it is not only the plant oil, extracted from its seeds, which provides health benefits because rosehip tea has high concentrations of vitamin C and can alleviate inflammatory and organic disorders. The red bulbous fruit found in the rose bushes, when the flowers are not cut, can be used in the preparation of infusions, decoctions and other preparations for internal and external use.
Rosehip has a high concentration of beta-carotene and lycopene (in the fruit pulp), as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, E and K and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, polyunsaturated fatty acids, 44% of linoleics and 36% of alpha-linoleics, saturated fatty acids and active acids.
Fatty acids act on the cell membrane and allow better nutrition and act directly on the proliferative phase of healing. Antioxidants, such as polyphenols, vitamins C and E and carotenoids, protect new cells so they form in the injured region that is regenerating. Vitamin E still has antioxidant effect, so it protects the cells from the damage caused by the dreaded free radicals, preventing aging.
As for healing, or in the treatment of stretch marks, it can also have a potentiated effect, being enriched in pharmacy preparation with vitamin C and E. It can be added to several pharmaceutical formulas, such as: lotions, gels, creams and others.
In addition to be an aromatic and tasty drink, rosehip tea is considered a great stimulant of the immune system, because it is a source of vitamin C. In some rosehip varieties, vitamin C concentrations are up to 40% than in oranges. Tea from the plant can be used in the treatment of colds, colds, sore throats and lung diseases.

Other studies have shown that it can be used to strengthen the circulatory system, the thymus gland, and to purify blood.
