The rowan berry is a small, round fruit that grows in clusters on the Rowan tree which belongs to the rose family. The tree can grow up to 30 meters in height and is found in most parts of Europe, Northern Africa and Southwest Asia.
The berries have a tangy and astringent taste when they are eaten raw, but this tanginess can be reduced somewhat if the berries are exposed to prolonged heat or cold.
Health Benefits of Rowan Berries
1. Acts as an Anti-Oxidant
Rowan berries have high levels of anti-oxidants such as scorbic acid and quercetin. Both of these work to prevent cell damage by controlling free radicals that can otherwise cause oxidative stress – the main cause of a number of skin and heart diseases and degenerative conditions.
Besides these benefits, the berries also make the skin look younger and prevent eyes diseases such as macular degeneration.
2. Boosts the Immune System
While rowan berries cannot be called nutritional powerhouses, they are rich sources of vitamin C. The vitamin works to increase the production of white blood cells in the body which gives the immune system the boost it needs to prevent the common cold and respiratory issues. Vitamin C also stimulates the production of collagen thus enhancing muscle tissue repair.
