Rosehip is the fruit that is produced by the rose plant. Rose hip is sometimes also called rose hep or rose haw. The fruit is usually red or orange but can also be dark purple or black depending on the species of rose. 

Rose hips have many nutritional benefits and can be prepared into teas, wine, bread, drinks, jams and jellies, soup, and syrups. If care is taken to avoid the fruit's hairs the rose hip can be eaten like a berry. Rose hips are frequently found in capsule or pill form and are commonly used in Vitamin C supplements. Rose hips also contain beta-carotene, carotenoids, lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin. Studies have shown the potential to reduce pain from arthritis. Rosehip is also used to treat afflictions of the stomach like spasms, diarrhea and constipation, and to help prevent ulcers and irritation. 

Pure rosehip supplements are sold for arthritis relief and the high Vitamin C content that is naturally found in rosehip helps treat illnesses like the common cold and the flu.
