Health - Natural Cure For Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Auntie Beeb reports on research from Denmark and Germany that indicates that rose hips might help fight rheumatoid arthritis.

To my great delight, it seems to be effective against osteoarthritis also:
It is already available at high-street chemists as it is widely used by patients with osteo-arthritis, a less debilitating condition caused by general wear and tear.

Researchers are unclear as to why exactly rose-hip has this effect, but the supplement appears to have both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Now, then: where do we get this miracle stuff? I'll report back when I find out more.
