Rose Hips are fruits that grow on certain species of wild rose plants in parts of Europe, Africa and Asia.  The particular genus and species of the rose hips in our product is Rosa Canina, or as it is commonly known, Dog Rose.  The fruits or hips of the plant are harvested by hand by the local indigenous people, are dried, and then grinded into a powder to become the product that is Huff's Dog Rose.  There are no preservatives, no artificial colors or ingredients of any kind.  Just 100% pure, organic, Rosa Canina from Africa. 


Dogs love the taste of it too...  The best part is that it's all natural!! 


The rose hip, also called rose hep or rose haw, is the fruit of a rose plant, which usually is red-to-orange (as is the case with our rose hip formula), however, ranges from dark purple to black in certain species. Rose hip begins to form after efficacious pollination to flowers in late spring or early summer and become fully grown in late summer through fall.


Rose hip has a ton of Vitamin C, in fact, it has 50% more Vitamin C than an orange!  Due to the high vitamin C content, rose hips are an incredible immune system booster and are used as a supplement in order to prevent sickness or disease.


Rose hips have the ability to help regenerate skin cells!  While this fruit is an astringent, it doesn’t dry out the skin; in fact, it assists to rehydrate skin, keeping the moisture in.  This tiny fruit has a high Vitamin A content – and this vitamin is commonly known as the "skin vitamin". It assists to regenerate skin cells, healing scars, and wounds. Moreover, it also helps to keep the skin nourished and elastic.


Rose hip is a mild diuretic and laxative because of the fruit acids and pectin. It’s used to aid in the case of constipation.  The vitamin A is also helpful to the immune system. As an abundant source of this vitamin, rose hips can help to prevent and treat infections from both viruses and bacteria.


Rose hips contain various antioxidants; flavonoids, catechins, leucoanthocyanidins, carotenoids, and polyphenols, which makes them a great cancer preventative. These antioxidants are also used to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.


Numerous complementary medicine physicians use this fruit to treat inflammations and wounds. Research in Germany and Denmark using a rose hip remedy showed that it was extremely beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis treatment. The group taking the medicine had a significant improvement in their mobility by 20-25%. They had less pain and an overall improvement in mood and the way they felt. The research showed major improvement in people suffering from osteoarthritis too, proving the anti-inflammatory properties.
