Rose hips (Rosa canina) provide a rich herbal source of vitamin C and flavonoids; they are considered to have antiscorbutic effects. The flavonoids synergize the effects of vitamin C. The vitamin C content enhances the integrity of connective tissue and reduces inflammation. The vitamin C and flavonoid content also support the immune system and counter the stress response.
Rose hips have antioxidant properties that support the heart and cardiovascular system. They enhance the integrity of the vascular system, and can be used as a daily tonic to reduce capillary fragility and permeability. Rose hips also can be used for long-term treatment of varicose veins, degenerative vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis and hypertension, as well as diabetes and allergies. They are useful in speeding the healing of bruises and wounds.
Rose hips contain a high amount of pectin. Pectin is highly ionic, and can draw and hold environmental toxins, radioactive compounds, and heavy metals, enhancing detoxification after subsequent exposure.
Honey is used as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial agent. High-quality natural honey contains important antioxidants including flavonoids and polyphenols that are found in propolis. Honey helps with seasonal allergies. The same allergens that trigger a reaction in people are present in small doses of the local, raw honey.
