Rosehips are the bright red berries of wild rose plants (rosa canina) that grow high in the forests around the Caucasus Mountain region of Georgia. The rose’s flowers range from stunning oranges to deep reds, and the plants begin to form berries in the spring. Rosehips reach peak ripeness in late summer through early fall, when local refugee workers harvest them by hand to make NADI.
Grandmothers and mothers in Georgia have for centuries used rosehips to make tea-like drinks and juices for their families to boost immunity, increase energy, and prevent and treat colds and other common maladies. Rosehips are one of the best naturally occurring sources of Vitamin C, and they also have bioflavonoids (Vitamin P) that help our bodies absorb Vitamin C more efficiently.
Each 10-ounce bottle of NADI Organic Rosehip Drink has just 9 calories and provides 135% of daily recommended Vitamin C.
