Feedmark Meadowblend Rosehips (Equine)
Traditionally, Rosehips have been picked from hedgerows for their health promoting properties, due to high levels of vitamins and beneficial antioxidant compounds. They are also used to help support strong healthy hoof growth, to help with circulation, and commonly for joint health.According to Page-Self (2006), Rosehips provide a readily available source of vitamin C, so can help support the immune system. They are an excellent spring tonic especially when fed with nettle leaf and can be fed to support health during times of fatigue. As they are a mild laxative, they can be useful to aid digestion. As a mild diuretic, they can be helpful to support kidney and bladder health. As a mild astringent, they can be helpful for loose droppings. As they are high in (bio)flavonoids, they can help with oxidative stress which is present in any living tissue, but higher during periods of illness. A number of clinical studies involving humans with osteoarthritis have looked into the effectiveness of Rosehips. The patients were given a product that contains an extract from Rosehips. This research was reviewed in 2007 and the conclusion was "Rosehip powder had a moderate effect in patients with osteoarthritis". There was a reduction in taking "rescue medication" after taking the Rosehip extract product for over three months. Consult your veterinarian first if you have concerns about your horse or pony's joint mobility.
