Rose Hips are taken from the rose plant, a perennial plant characterised by its thorny branches, pink or white flowers and dark orange to red/purple fruits. Native to Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia, the fruit can be eaten like a berry or made into delicious treats such as jams, fruity teas, bread, wine and jelly. The hips are seeds inside the fruit of the rose plant and have long been discovered to have benefits to health.
Fresh Rose Hips contain a number of natural nutrients including Vitamin E, Vitamin C, beta-carotene and lycopene. One of the richest natural plant sources, Rose Hips shares the many benefits that the well known Vitamin C has for health including boosting the immune system and providing that important antioxidant protection against damage causing free radicals.
