In recent years, rosehip has been the subject of several studies due to its nutraceutical properties for human health and the observed beneficial health effects that may result from certain compounds extracted from the fruit, such as polyphenols, carotenoids, vitamin E, flavonoids and the antioxidant vitamin C. The medicinal properties of Rosa canina fruits are due in part to their richness in phenolic substances. Rosehips contain several biologically active compounds, such as: organic acids, pectins, flavonoids, tannins, carotenoids, fatty acids, vitamins (especially vitamin C and also vitamins B1, B2, K, PP, E). ), macro- and microelements, etc.
