The Antioxidant Properties of Rose Hips Rose hips contains large amounts of vitamin C, which is a highly antioxidant vitamin, and also other antioxidant phytochemicals including many anthocyanin flavonoids such as quercetin. During cellular respiration, the process by which ATP energy is generated in the mitochondria of your body cells, reactive oxygen species are formed, such as hydrogen peroxide H2O2(2-) and the superoxide anion O2(-). These are better known as free radicals, which can destroy body cells through oxidation. More importantly, they can oxidize the low density lipids (LDLs) used to transport cholesterol around your bloodstream. Oxidized LDL deposits cholesterol plaques on the internal walls of your arteries, progressively narrowing or even blocking them. This condition is known as atherosclerosis which is potentially fatal. However, it can be prevented by antioxidants such as flavonoids and vitamin C. Rose hip is therefore a useful general supplement to take, particularly if you have high LDL cholesterol levels in your blood. What can Rose Hips Do For You? Rose hips are generally available in the form of a liquid extract, a tea or as the dried and ground extract in the form of pills or capsules. It was widely used during and just after World War II in Europe as a rich source of vitamin C for children, since the shipment of fruit across the Atlantic was severely limited and domestic sources were restricted for civilian consumption. In fact, rose hips contain more vitamin C than practically any other common fruit or vegetable, and are rich in polyphenol flavonoids that offer powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Among the health benefits that a rose hip supplement offers is pain relief for arthritis sufferers, and treatment for a variety of stomach disorders such as diarrhea, constipation, ulcers, stomach spasms, fluid retention, urinary tract infections and the symptoms of colds and flu. Rose hips can also be used to reduce fever and boost the immune system, supporting white blood cells in killing off pathogens in the bloodstream. Rosehip oil and alcohol solution can be used to treat oily skin and acne, where it reduces inflammation, cleans out the pores and deals with infection. A regular supplement of rose hip will help you avoid these winter infections and illnesses that many people seem to get every year. However, if you are using estrogen supplements, lithium or warfarin, check with your doctor first because high levels of vitamin C can interfere with these treatments.
