Rose Hip Vital
Rose Hip Vital is an anti-inflammatory formula which features an extract from rosehip (Rosa Canina L). The formula is manufactured by Hyben Vital ApS, a family-owned company headquartered in the Danish Islands of Langeland, Australia. They have been producing rosehip based formulas since early 1980’s. Today the company farms rosehip on more than 200 hectares (from over 40 distributors located Denmark and Sweden) using no pesticides or fertilizers.
The method used by Hyben Vital ApS to process and obtain the rosehip extracts used to create the majority of their formulas has been patented. It is a special drying process through which compound GOPO is isolated. GOPO is a Galactolipid that has been scientifically researched and patented which is believed to be helpful in the treatment of joint inflammation and stiffness, improving mobility and flexibility. GOPO acts by blocking the accumulation of white blood cells in the joints thus reducing inflammation risk and associated pain.
The claimed benefits of Rose Hip Vital are: temporary relief of the pain caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatism and arthritis, increased joint mobility, relief from inflammation and joint swelling, improvement of the symptoms of lower back pain and osteoarthritis in the hands.
Rosa Hip Vital is commercialized as capsules or as powder.
Rose Hip Vital Ingredients
Rose Hip Vital contains the following ingredients: Rosa Canina L. (rosehip) fruit powder 500mg with Galactolipids (GOPO).
Rose Hip Vital is an herbal based supplement. The single active ingredient is the rose hip extract, which is the fruit of the rose plant. It is generally consumed as a food (within marmalade, jelly, pies, or bread) and within drinks (teas, syrups, wine, and other beverages).
Fresh rose hips are a rich source of vitamin C and are used by medicine aimed at preventing and treating cold, flu, and vitamin C deficiencies. However, most of the vitamin C is lost during the drying and storage processes and many rose hip based supplements are usually fortified with lab-made vitamin C in order to increase their effectiveness. Rose hip is considered generally safe for adults in both food and medicinal amounts. Mild side effects such as nausea, constipation, stomach cramps, headaches, or allergic reactions (when inhaling rose hip dust) may occur.
The main uses of rose hip as medicine include obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, fever, stomach irritation, infections, boosting the immune system, and preventing/treating colds. However, there is still insufficient evidence of the effectiveness in treating most of these conditions.
Hyben Vital’s formula is one of the few products clinically researched and proven effective in improving some symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
The formula participated in a trial which used 112 patients. They were involved in a 3 months double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. The resulting data indicated that Hyben Vital’s product reduces the symptoms of osteoarthritis (joint paint, stiffness, improving also sleep quality, energy levels and mood).
Rose Hip Vital’s suggested dose is of 5 capsules twice a day for 3 weeks (with meals). If no side-effects occur, the dosage is to be maintained.
