Roses may be known for their sweet aromas and beautiful colours, but did you know that nature’s prettiest plant has incredible healing powers, and can be harvested and used as a natural remedy to treat various ailments and conditions?
Rose hip powder is made from dried rose hips – the edible and highly nutritious fruit of the rose plant. Packed full of vitamins and minerals, rosehips are particularly high in vitamin C which helps prevent colds and influenza.
Rose hip also contains lycopene, an antioxidant that reduces the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDLs) and cell membranes. Antioxidant flavonoids have shown to significantly improve joint stiffness and pain caused by osteoarthritis.
Rose hip also contains phytochemicals that help protect against cancer and heart disease. In recent clinical trials, rose hip was credited for assisting with the reduction of C-reactive protein levels that cause heart disease and stroke. Rose hip also contains vitamins E and K, as well as B vitamins – riboflavin and folate.
The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition cites that taking rose hip as a supplement for six weeks can significantly reduce blood pressure and LDL. Clinical trials further confirm that rose hip can help reduce heart disease by 15% and stroke by 25%. It also helps regulate blood glucose.
Because rose hip is high in iron, it’s particularly useful for the prevention of iron deficiencies in menstruating women, and it can be used as a natural remedy to help reduce skin abrasions, wrinkling and bruising.
