Rosehips are the red to orange coloured fruits from the rose plant belonging to the Rosa genus in the Rosaceae family. Traditionally, rosehips have been used against colds, mainly due to its high content of Vitamin C, and for stomach problems as protection against gastric ulcers. Rosa canina fruits are also reported to be diuretic and laxative, and to be effective for digestive problems. Rosehips are beneficial for our health due to their appreciable levels of high-value nutrients, minerals, and bioactive compounds.
