Rose Hips Benefits
Rosa rugosa are wild plants traditionally used for their active compounds, which can provide support for a wide variety of diseases. Rose hips benefits are many, including its high vitamin C content and its ability to enhance immune response and control inflammation. The benefits are associated with their ascorbic acid, phenolic content, and healthy fatty acid content, including Vitamin E and Lycopene.
In recent years, scientific interest in rose hips has increased due to its potential to support treatment for disorders related to oxidative stress, including skin disorders, hepatotoxicity, renal disturbances, diarrhea, arthritis, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia, obesity, and cancer.
Rose Hips Have More Vitamin C Than Oranges
Rose hips are the round portion of the rose flower just below the petals. Rose hips contain the seeds of the rose plant. Rosa rugosa is known to produce the best rose hips benefits. Rose hips extract from Linden Botanicals is standardized to 20% vitamin C.
Vitamin C is best known for its antioxidant properties. Vitamin C is able to scavenge damaging reactive oxygen species to protect the body’s cells and tissues from oxidative damage and dysfunction. Vitamin C also supports healthy immune function.
Vitamin C levels can become depleted from the body during infection. The requirement for vitamin C increases with the severity of the infection, which makes the vitamin C content in our rose hips extracts all the more important.
As of April 2020, clinical tests are being conducted to investigate vitamin C as having the potential to mitigate symptoms during future viral outbreaks.
Enhanced Immune and Inflammation Response
Inflammation helps to protect the body against different harmful stimuli, such as infection, chemical exposure, tissue damage, trauma, and bacteria exposure. However, excessive inflammation may harm tissues and organisms and has been associated with the development and onset of such inflammation-related diseases as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, atherosclerosis, and cancer.
As studies have shown, rose hips benefits may include anti-inflammation support. The flower extract of Rosa rugosa has antioxidant properties and may act as a beneficial anti-inflammatory agent.
