Rosehips, the fruit of the rose plant, have been used for centuries for their numerous health benefits. Rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, rosehips can help boost the immune system and protect against illness.
Additionally, they contain polyphenols and anthocyanins, which have anti-inflammatory properties that can aid in reducing joint pain and stiffness caused by arthritis. Rosehip extract has also been found to improve skin hydration and elasticity, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products.
Studies have shown that consuming rosehips may also lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health by decreasing blood pressure. Those who are taking iron supplements or certain medications that are absorbed by the liver should speak with a doctor before use as rose hips can reduce the bodies absorption process.
