Arthritis is caused by swelling around the joints and damage to the cartilage that keeps joints moving.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the UK.

It tends to affect people over the age of 40 and women in particular.

Anyone who feels they may have arthritis os advised to speak to their GP about possible treatments available.

But dietary changes and cutting out foods known to cause inflammation, as well as eating more foods with anti-inflammatory properties, are often recommended.

People who suffer from the condition may also be advised to lose weight as being heavier can put more strain on your joints.

So, could a 13p tea help to reduce arthritis pain?

Rosehip tea is a herbal tea made from the rose plant and has a floral but tart taste.

Rosehip was used by ancient civilisations as a natural remedy for many conditions, ranging from toothache to rabies.

Today rosehip extract is linked to many health benefits, including boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation and improving heart health.

Is it something that can help people manage arthritis?

Rosehip contains two substances believed to reduce joint inflammation and pain - polyphenols and anthocyanins.

Polyphenols are compounds found in plants and plant-based foods that are high in antioxidants.

Anthocyanins are a type of antioxidant known for their purple colour. It is the substance which gives blueberries, aubergines, red cabbages and blackberries their vibrant colours.

Rosehip is also high in vitamin C, which is noted for its antioxidant properties, as well as boosting the functioning of the immune system.

Research has been carried out on rosehips healthy properties.

One four-month study of 100 people with osteoarthritis, found taking five grams of rosehip extract every day, saw reduced pain for 65 per cent of those who took part.

Studies have also noted rosehip can have a positive effect on weight loss, which can help manage joint pain and arthritis.

A cup of rosehip tea is just three calories, so it makes for a great low-calorie alternative to sugary drinks. It is also caffeine free.

The evidence that is currently available as to its benefits has focused on studies where participants take a more concentrated rosehip extract.

But rosehip tea is a very cheap and easily available alternative.

You can pick up a bag of 20 teabags from Holland & Barrett for just 2.59.

If youre adventurous you could even try making some yourself by brewing your own dried rosehips in boiling water.
