The Rose Hip, also known as Rose Haw or Rose Hep, is the accessory fruit of the rose plant. It is typically red to orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose Hip begins to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer.
Rose hips are usually used for herbal teas, jams, syrups and oils. Below are some benefits from including this in your diet:
- Rose Hip is particularly high in Vitamin C, with it being one of the richest plant sources available.
- Some studies have shown that Rose Hip reduces arthritis pain.
- The organic compound and antioxidant components in Rose Hip also reduce cholesterol in your body, thereby lowering your risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
- Rose Hip boosts immunity the massive amount of vitamin C it contains.
