Rose Hips are the fruit of a rose that develop after the peddles have fallen. They were used in Britain during World War II to help avoid scurvy during a shortage of citrus fruit. Since then, Rose Hips have been used as a source of Vitamin C and in fact, have up to 60 times the Vitamin C of citrus fruit and contain the bioflavonoids that aid in the absorption of Vitamin C. Can be used to help support infection and curb stress, it is the highest herb in Vitamin C content and contains the entire C-Complex. Fortifier for recovering or anemic people, feeding/pregnant women.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water soluble nutrient and is the least stable of the vitamins. It can lose its potency to light, heat and exposure to air and must be consumed daily in the diet as the body does not process or store Vitamin C.
One of the primary functions of Vitamin C is to maintain collagen, a protein substance, which forms connective tissue in skin and bones. It is this nutrient that supports wounds and burns by helping form connective tissue in the scarred areas.
Vitamin C is also effective in supporting the common cold since it fights bacterial infections and some allergy-producing compounds.
Vitamin C has also been found to be of value in minimizing the effects of environmental pollution, including carbon monoxide and lead by providing more oxygen to the cells through its anti-oxidant qualities.
Vitamin C works in harmony with components such as Bioflavonoids, Rutin, Hesperidin and Rosehips, which help in the absorption of Vitamin C.
