Rose hips are the best source of vitamin C; they contain 50% more vitamin C than oranges. A single tablespoon of the pulp gives an adult more than the recommended daily allowance of 60 mg. They can be eaten raw, after being put through a blender, or soaked in water overnight and then cooked in the water for about half an hour. Because of the high vitamin C content they are an excellent immune system booster, and are often used as a supplement to prevent or treat a cold. The pulp from rose hips may be used in sauces or made into jelly.

Rose hips develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose. These fruits are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C available.
The rose hips procured by Mountain Rose Herbs come from the species Rosa Canina, which is commonly referred to as the dog rose. These plants are deciduous shrubs native to Europe and western Asia. They typically grow between 1 and 5 meters in height, and possess attractive flowers which range in color from white to pink. The fruit, known as rose hips, appears in early summer, ripening throughout the season and into autumn.

Most commonly found in tea and liquors. Seldom found in capsule or extract form.
Rose hips have a tart flavor and can be used to make jelly, jam, soup or oil, or can be alternatively used to flavor tea. During World War II, the British government used collected rose hips to make rose hip syrup as a source of vitamin C to replace citrus fruits that were impossible to get. Rose hips have a long history of use in traditional medicine. Rose hip tea is a rich source of vitamin C, carrying all the benefits of that vitamin. In addition, the various flavonoids in rose hips have potent antioxidant action.
Rose hips contain anti-inflammatory properties and may be used to support healthy joints.
