Rose Hip Extract || Alcohol-Free Antioxidant & Aging support | 2 sizes

$18.00

Rose hips are the fruit of the Rose plant that show up in late Autumn and Winter.

Closely related to apples and hawthorns, they are incredibly high in antioxidants and are known to have the highest vitamin C content among fruits and vegetables.

In addition, rose hips have shown to be incredibly anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, and diuretic*

This makes rose hips a highly valuable ally as we age. 

Rose Hip extract may be a good fit for those who:
  • Experience frequent colds & flus
  • Have children or coworkers bringing seasonal ick around
  • Have dry, dull skin 
  • Suffer from osteoarthritis pain
  • Have high blood pressure and/or LDL cholesterol

It is probably NOT a good fit for those who:

  • Have recurring kidney stones, sickle cell anemia, or hemochromatosis.
  • Take lithium, blood thinners, or chemotherapy (talk to your Dr.)
This Rose Hip extract can be worked with both orally...
  • for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular aging support
...As well as topically
  • for brightening, softening, and moisturizing skin

Vitamin C

Rose hips are known for having the highest vitamin C content of all fruits and vegetables.

On average, rose hips contain about 500mg of antioxidant vitamin C per 100g. That’s ten times as much as in oranges, which contain about 50mg per 100g.

Due to our low storage capacity of this water-soluble vitamin, a regular and adequate intake is required.

Studies have indicated that low vitamin C levels are relatively common in Western populations, and vitamin C deficiency is the fourth leading nutrient deficiency in the United States.

Vitamin C plays a pivotal role in managing our immune system. They are also highly valuable to those with anemia, since the key to processing iron in the body is to couple it with vitamin C and rose hips contain both.

In addition to being highly antioxidant, rose hips have shown to be incredibly anti-inflammatory, as well as antimicrobial, astringent, and diuretic. This lends to rose hips most notably being worked with for pain in osteoarthritis as well as for an overall cardiovascular tonic, potentially reducing levels of LDL cholesterol as well as blood pressure. This makes rose hips a highly valuable ally as we age.
