Rose hip helps to maintain healthy and flexible joints
How does it work?
Rosehip extract contains polyphenols and anthocyanins, which are believed to ease joint inflammation and prevent joint damage. It’s also rich in vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances that can override harmful molecules (free radicals) which are produced within your cells and which may cause tissue damage or disease.
Other studies have found that it can reduce the production of specific enzymes that break down cartilage.
You’ll sleep better. Patients who’ve taken rosehip for long periods of time have mentioned better sleeping habits and less morning stiffness.
Taking rosehip supplements will encourage exercise through energy. One of the most important things osteoarthritis sufferers can do is get their joints moving. This increases the body’s production of ‘synovial fluid’, which keeps the cartilage healthy with lubrication and nutrients.
