Rose Hips contain pectin, citric acid, and malic acid, all of which have laxative and diuretic activities. Rose hips are one of the most natural and abundant sources of vitamin C. They also contain vitamins A, D, and E, and antioxidant flavonoids. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is the pomeaceous fruit of the rose plant. Rosehips are commonly used as a herbal tea, often blended with hibiscus and as an oil. They can also be used to make jam, jelly and marmalade. As an herbal remedy, rosehips are attributed with the ability to prevent urinary bladder infections, and assist in treating dizziness and headaches.
