Traditionally Used for

Osteoarthritis. Most research shows that taking a specific rose hip product (LitoZin/i-flex, Hyben Vital) by mouth twice daily for 3-4 months reduces pain and stiffness and improves function in people with osteoarthritis.

Insufficient Evidence for

Obesity. Early research shows that taking rose hip powder mixed with apple juice does not affect weight or blood sugar levels in people who are obese. But it might slightly reduce cholesterol and blood pressure.

Rheumatoid arthritis. Early research shows that taking a specific rose hip product (LitoZin/i-flex, Hyben Vital) by mouth improves some symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Stretch marks (striae gravidarum). Early research shows that applying a specific cream containing rose hip oil and other ingredients (Velastisa Antiestrías, ISDIN) to the skin at least twice daily during pregnancy reduces the severity of stretch marks. It also might reduce the chance of getting stretch marks in women who didn't have stretch marks before becoming pregnant.

Kidney stones: Large amounts of the vitamin C in rose hip might increase the chance of getting kidney stones.

 

Iron-related disorders such as hemochromatosis, thalassemia, or anemia: Use rose hip with caution if you have any of these conditions. The vitamin C in rose hip can increase iron absorption, which could make your condition worse.

 

Heart attack (myocardial infarction): Rose hip contains rugosin E. Rugosin E might cause blood clots. If you've had a heart attack, taking rose hip might increase the chance of blood clots or another heart attack.

 

Sickle cell disease: It is rare, but the vitamin C in rose hip might make blood more acidic. This could bring on a sickle cell crisis. It's best to avoid use.
