Quince Tea

Quince is a real vitamin bomb in the fall. The healthy fruit, which comes from Southeast Asia, is known for the fact that all of its parts - fruit, seeds, leaves, even the moss on the fruit, have healing properties. Quince juice and syrup have the best healing properties.

The qualities of quince as a folk remedy are due to the rich content of vitamins - C, B1, B2, B3, provitamin A, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper, sodium, zinc, manganese, iron, chlorine and sulfur are representatives of the minerals that enrich quince.

Proteins, fiber and carbohydrates are added to its qualities. Fats and calories are low in content and therefore the fruit is dietary. Amygdalin (vitamin B17) in the seeds has a powerful anti-cancerous effect, as well as tannin, pectin, sugars and malic acid, that support the work of the intestinal tract.

The tannins and mucus in quinces work well on the small intestine and protect against infectious diseases.
