Probably known best for their extraordinary source of vitamin C, and one of the best sources of natural iron, rosehips are highly beneficial as a natural supplement.
Thought to contain 60-times the amount of vitamin C found in lemons, makes rosehips a potent antiviral, immunity supporter and circulatory stimulant, helping to restore and maintain a healthy vascular system and prevent damage to fragile capilliaries, being especially useful for strengthening blood vessels and the elasticity of the arteries.
They're also well known for their major role in kidney rehabilitation and adrenal function.
Natural vit.C and bioflavonoids are combined in nature, and for efficacy it's essential that they be used together. Rosehips are rich in both, and due to their high vit.C content, they’re helpful in enhancing the immune system. They're also thought to avert many types of infectious ailments before they happen by feeding them as a preventative on a daily basis. Anyone remember Delrosa Syrup from back in the day? Delicious!
Vit.C is also a key antioxidant found in lung tissue, with studies showing that vit.C levels are low in the lungs of horses with respiratory issues.
We also supply ground Rosehips.
