Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant, harvested when they are ripe and bright red in colour. Characterised by their sweet and slightly tangy flavour, they are considered to be one of the most naturally abundant sources of Vitamin C.

The Vitamin C rich properties of rose hips, combined with their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions, makes them an excellent immune supporter.

Rose hips are also high in folate and contain vitamins A, B3, D and E along with magnesium, zinc, copper and numerous other phytochemicals. Their antioxidant actions give protective effects against oxidative stress, helping to reduce stress on the heart and cardiovascular system.
