Viridian Rose Hips Extract 700mg Veg Caps

(Rosa canina)

Rose Hips, or more commonly Dog Rose, became appreciated in Britain under the blockade of the Second World War when the population was put to work to collect them as a valuable vitamin source. The traditional uses of rose (Rosa canina) hips and seeds include the prevention of flu and cold symptoms, and treatment of fevers, gastric spasms, gastric ulcers, diarrhoea, diabetic issues, gout, and sciatica. Moderate evidence exists for the use of a powder of the seeds and husks of a Rosa canina in patients suffering from osteoarthritic issues.

Anti-arthritic - Two recent studies, from Denmark and from Norway, have been published on the anti-inflammatory action in osteoarthritic issues of a standard rosehip powder produced from dog Rose Hips and seeds. In the Norwegian trial, the rosehip powder was tested in a double-blind trial of 100 people with similar degrees of osteoarthritic issues. Those who had the rosehip powder developed better active movements of the hip, but passive movements remained comparable in both groups. The Danish trial studied 100 people in a double-blind random trial. There was a significant reduction in pain and the consumption of painkillers in those taking Rose Hips for more than three weeks. Decreased disability and stiffness wasnt generally significantly apparent until after three months of treatment. The anti-inflammatory action of rosehips is known to be independent of its vitamin C content. Research reveals that patients taking the Rose Hips also use less palliative medication and have improved levels of daily activities.

Cardiovascular Support - The evidence is increasing that inflammation of the blood vessels is a highly relevant factor in heart issues. An indication of the ability of Rose Hips to reduce inflammation is its effect in lowering patients C-reactive protein levels, which are often raised in people with a tendency to heart issues, or confirmed heart issues.

Immune Protective and Nutritive - Rose Hips contain vitamins C, A, B1 2 and 3, vitamin K and a wide variety of flavonoids, polyphenols, volatile oils and tannins. Rose Hips provide one of the best natural and freely available sources of vitamin C and will help support the bodys immune system against infections and the common cold. They make an excellent spring tonic and aid in general debility and exhaustion.

Antioxidant - Rosa canina fruits are well known to contain a large amount of antioxidants including vitamin C, phenolics such as proanthocyanidins and flavonoids. Results reveal that Rose Hips extract can inhibit reactive oxygen species (ROS) thus offering protection against free radical damage and oxidative stress.
