I have always taken a vitamin c supplement to help with skin, immune system, and other things, but whole food sources like rose hips really are the gold standard. In addition to having incredible amounts of vitamin C, you’re also getting dozens of other vitamins, minerals, and healing phytochemicals that you just won’t find in an isolated vitamin C pill, some of which are actually vital for proper absorption of the C.
3/4 cup of rose hips provides:
426 mg vitamin C (710% daily value)
17% daily value calcium
17% daily value magnesium
12% daily value potassium
51% daily value manganese
39% daily value vitamin e
(Just to name a couple)
In comparison… the same amount of raw oranges provides just 45 mg vitamin c!
So just a reminder to myself and others- pills and powders can never replace the untouched whole food nutrient sources that the earth provides us. Food changes EVERYTHING!
