For many generations the Mayans, the Egyptians and the Native Americans have benefitted from the medicinal properties of rose hips – the fruit of wild rose species native to Europe, northwest Africa and western Asia. Rosa canina and Rosa gallica are the two types of rose bush most often cultivated for their hips; they are made into teas, syrups and jellies, and used to make oils for the complexion. Rose hips are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and iron, and are a good source of bio flavonoids, pectin, vitamin E, selenium, manganese, and B complex vitamins. They also contain moderate amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and silicon.
There are lots of Clinical studies online about the ROSEHIPS which linked to diseases such as: arthritis and osteoarthritis, stiffness and joint inflammation; asthma and other respiratory issues; high cholesterol level and heart diseases, elevated blood sugar among diabetics; diarrhea, constipation, stomach irritation and ulcers, stomach spasm, stomach acid deficiency, gallstones, gall bladder ailments, gout and urinary tract infections.
The fruit acids and pectin in rose hips have diuretic and laxative properties that helps to relieve symptoms of kidney disorders. Their phytochemical contents protect the body from free radicals and help prevent cancer and other cardiovascular diseases. The vitamin C in rose hips also helps in the production of collagen and red blood cells during menstruation.
