BBC & Rose Hips
When I first read the title I was expecting something along the lines of arthritic looking rose canes w/ hips :)
I thought it was interesting in that it speaks to rheumatoid arthritis and that panoply of immune disorders instead of the more common osteo.
It is interesting! Thanks so much for posting this. I read up on the product they used in the study, and found one supplier in the US: Swanson Health Products. If anyone's interested, it's easy to find a $5.00 coupon for new customers. I ordered a bottle. Not the cheapest supplement I ever bought, but if it works it'll be well worth it. They claim improvement should be felt in two weeks. That would be very nice...
It's been known for many generations that rosehips are an excellent source of vitamin C....now this article..... ..hhhmmmmm...makes me think I will finally try some of these recipes this fall.
Luckily for me , I have lots of Rugosas and plenty of rose hips.
Thanks for the article Michael.

Thank you very much, MAT. I may give it a shot to help stave off the bone-swelly thing I had [BTW HAD! Happy Happy Wrist/Thumb Moving Dance!!] for the future.
I do love hearing of helpful things that are also eaten as food. Rose hip jelly has been around forever. I try to include these foods on a regular basis - turmeric, berries, nuts, certain fish...
Native American remedies for blood sugar problems are another food-helped issue: prickly pear cactus, beans and Cornelian cherries are great to 'take'.
Of course, the actual studies are great to see. Thanks!
