Rose hips are the seed pods of roses. We don’t often see them anymore, because we tend to prune the faded rose blossoms to encourage more flowers. However if you leave the spent flowers on the rose bush at the end of the season, you should see these small, berry-sized, reddish seed balls, left on tips of the stems. They are actually very ornamental and birds enjoy them too.

Health benefits
Rose hips contain vitamin C, some vitamin A and B, essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids.

Particularly high in Vitamin C, with about 1700–2000 mg per 100 g in the dried product, one of the richest plant sources. RP-HPLC assays of fresh rose hips and several commercially available products revealed a wide range of L-ascorbic acid content, ranging from 0.03 to 1.3%.

An initial trial of a rosehip remedy called LitoZin showed possible benefits to rheumatoid arthritis sufferers.

It is also known to stimulate alertness and counter fatigue; facilitate digestion and gastrointestinal functions; regulate blood glucose levels; nourish the liver, pancreas and spleen; help the body sustain a feeling of vitality and well-being and external application for blemishes.

Some stevia and stevioside users report a decrease in desire for sweets and fatty foods.

Additionally, some users have reported that drinking stevia tea or stevia enhanced teas helped to reduce their desire for tobacco and alcoholic beverages.

Schizandra, may help you by calming frazzled nerves and redirecting energy where you need it.  It’s no wonder that the Chinese have a centuries-long tradition of using Schizandra to sustain youthful vigor.
