Herbal treatment for horses is perfect with the all important inclusion of Rosehips, Rosa Canina or Dog Rose. Dog Rose is native to Europe and is considered a weed in parts of Australia which is unfortunate as it has such wonderful health giving properties for both ourselves and our horses. The hips of the dog rose were a popular sweetmeat in the Middle Ages and can add great weight to any herbal treatments for horses and dogs as well. The term sweetmeats usually refers to candy or sweet confections. Doctors in the Middle Ages often concealed bitter medicine in candy form, so that it was more palatable to patients. However, many patients believed that medicine wasn’t working unless it tasted awful.
Rosehips are a fabulous herbal treatment or fruit for ensuring great health for both horses and humans. Because of the Rosehips anti-oxidant properties they are a brilliant food for maintaining good health. Research has shown that antioxidants protect the body against certain diseases such as cancer, arthritis and cardiovascular diseases.
Antioxidants can protect against free radical cells which can damage tissues and are implicated in causing many diseases.Excessive free radicals are caused by poor nutrition , stress and damaged tissues. Infections will lower your horses vitamin c levels and this can also inhibit the growth and repair of cartilage and bone tissue if it is constantly deficient.
Rosehips have an important part to play in neutralising free radicals therefore they are a wonderful herbal treatment for keeping your horse healthy and in peak condition. Research has established Rosehips as the highest source of flavournoids and biotin which is great for strengthening horses hooves as well.
If you are looking for a naturally occurring herbal treatment then vitamin c has been found to be far more readily absorbed than artificial vitamin c, therefore the benefits of feeding rosehips to horses should be an obvious choice.
Rosehips are a great source of iron and can be used to rehabilitate weak kidneys. They are also a good tonic for liver based ailments and can help build a barrier against infection.
