ROSEHIPS (Rosa canina) aka - Hip Tree, Wild Brier, Dog Brier

“Rosa” originally comes from the Greek word “roden” or red. For those alive and old enough to remember World War II, there was a shortage of citrus fruit in England, due to the German submarine blockade of the British Isles. To offset the loss of Vitamin C, the British government organized the country to harvest all the Rosehips in England to be made into Vitamin C syrup for the people, so as to prevent scurvy. This was the beginning of the use of Rosehips as a therapeutic option. Today, one of the richest sources of Vitamin C is Rosehips - it reportedly has 60 times more Vitamin C than citrus fruit. Rosehips is also rich in bio-flavonoids, that are vital to build and strengthen body tissues and are especially important in the building and maintaining of a strong blood vascular system to include the healing of fragile capillaries. Rosehips with its bio-flavonoids and Vitamin C combined together enhances the body’s ability to absorb Vitamin C in those having difficulty absorbing it. It helps in preventing and in treating infections and helps to curb stress. It has been reported by researchers that arteriosclerosis is a deficiency disease of Vitamin C. Large doses of Vitamin C from Rosehips, have been known to cure cancer and in smaller doses have been found to be a preventative in fighting the disease
