What are Swanson Rose Hips?

When it comes to nutrition, the Rose bush is much underestimated. Often condemned as little more than a pretty face, the flower of the rose is seen as the sum of all its parts. A great way to profess feelings of affection to a loved one or to brighten a dull room, the Rose bush is rarely considered for anything more than its looks and its sweet aroma.

And yet, it would appear that the rose has been overlooked. The hips of the plant, the bulbous, red fruits that hang from the stem, are actually formidable sources of the antioxidant vitamin C. Also rich in pectin, vitamin E, bioflavonoids, potassium, sulphur and magnesium, these much maligned fruits are even a great way to get your B vitamin complex.

  • Rose Hips have been linked to improved mobility in Arthritis sufferers
  • The Vitamin C boosts our immune and respiratory systems
  • Antioxidants protect our hearts

So how have they gone under the radar for so long? It turns out they haven't, it's just that rather than the nutritional world cottoning on to their potency, it was the culinary world. Predominantly used to make jams, jellies and syrups, the Rose Hip has been an active part of the world of bakery for as long as chefs can remember.

What is truly amazing is that when you compare the nutritional content of Rose Hips to oranges, you discover that Rose Hips not only contain 25% more Iron but also between 20 and 40% more Vitamin C. They also boast 28% more Calcium and 25x the amount of Vitamin A.

What are Swanson Rose Hips used for?

Swanson Rose Hips have been created with one clear commitment: to bring this fruit out of the kitchen and into our nutritional consciousness. As a near incomparable source of vitamin C, there's never been a better time, or way, to draw all of the antioxidant goodness out of this unsuspecting fruit.

  • Packed with vital vitamin C
  • 25% more than in oranges
  • Huge antioxidant support your immune system
  • Full spectrum, whole herb form

All of our bodies produce free radicals, they are at the heart of so many of our health problems and we must do everything in our power to stop them. Introducing as many antioxidants to our diet is important but so is choosing the right ones. Arguably the most famous antioxidant is vitamin C.

Because the bioflavonoids in Swanson Rose Hips allow for a superior absorption of this water soluble nutrient, each of us are afforded a far better and effective source of that most essential of vitamins.

What is the recommended dosage of Swanson Rose Hips?
