The rose hip is the fruit of the rose plant. It is sometimes called the rose haw, and may be red, orange or purple in color depending on the species. Rose hips are what remains on the rose plant after the petals have fallen. Rose hips are packed with vitamin C, E, K, B, riboflavin, folate and iron. They also contain antioxidants and have a variety of medicinal herbal purposes. For example, some women drink rose hip tea during menstruation to replenish iron levels.
Because of their high vitamin C content, rose hips are also used to boost the immune system. They may also be used to improve the urinary health and the discomfort associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Some herbalists also use rose hip oil on the skin as an anti-aging treatment. Rose hips may also be used as a treatment for constipation. Nature’s Sunshine rose hips capsules contain 560 mg of rose hips per capsule.
