Cherokee Rosehip

How does Cherokee Rosehip work?

Cherokee rosehip contains vitamin C. It seems to have an anti-diarrheal effect.

Are there safety concerns?

Cherokee rosehip appears to be safe for most people when taken at recommended doses. It can cause nausea, stomach cramps, fatigue, and sleeplessness.

Large doses (67 grams of Cherokee rosehip or more per day) can cause diarrhea and symptoms of vitamin C poisoning, such as kidney and urinary problems.
