During the Second World War British school children were given the job of collecting rosehips from hedgerows to make into rosehip syrup as a source of vitamin C that was difficult to obtain from food normally imported due to the German U boat blockade.
Even today rosehips are still an important part of the traditional Scandinavian food such as rosehip soup with cream and rose hip marmalade.
Cardiovascular Support – rosehips have been linked with keeping the heart and circulation healthy with research indicating that rosehip extract can reduce the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol as well as exerting their anti-inflammatory effects on the blood vessels.
Urinary Tract Infections – rosehips have been used to help prevent urinary tract infections.
Immune Support – the hips from the dog rose contain between 10 and 50 times the amount of vitamin C of an orange. Used regularly rosehip can help to build the body’s defence against colds and flu, catarrh, sore throats and chest infections.
Properties: Glycoside of mono and diglycerol – a little known component of the rosehip that exerts the anti-inflammatory effect by reducing white blood cell production that is in turn responsible for the inflammatory response at the site of irritation.
