Who is it?
It grows spontaneously and is very common, but the dog rose, despite this, stands out in beauty thanks to its flower between pink and red and the robust grace of its fruit "harmoniously surrounded and covered with a glittering coral shell", as Leclerc, a famous phytotherapist, describes it. Right inside that scarlet armor, the dog rose hides, ready to exploit them, all its abilities. Belonging to the rosaceae family, it is the wild relative of the rose.
The active ingredients of the rosehip, altruistic and targeted, make those of other plants more bioavailable, favoring their penetration into the cell and increasing the immune defenses.
Rosehip protects the circulation and the cardiovascular system, activates the body's defensive powers, performs a purifying activity, mildly diuretic and laxative, and acts as an emollient on the intestinal mucous membranes.
Like caskets, forged with red armor, rose hips, the false fruits of the rose, contain a great wealth of vitamin C and polyphenols, important antioxidants.
The dog does not need vitamins from external sources, producing them from glucose, but can find in the dog rose a valid friend in feverish, acute inflammatory states and profuse diarrhea.
Like the heel for Achilles and kryptonite for Superman, rose hips also have a weak point, namely drying. This attack drastically lowers the vitamin C content from 95% to 40%.

According to the Signatura theory, a plant reminiscent of a part of the body was able to cure it, so, being the scratches caused by the rosehip similar to the bite marks of dogs suffering from rabies, it was believed to be able to cure this disease. For this reason he owes his baptismal name.
