Rosehip capsules are food supplement capsules that contain rosehip extract. Each Metabolics Rosehip capsule contains the equivalent of 2.8g rosehip.
Rosehips are part of the fruit that grows on the blossom of a wild rose called Rosa canina, which is what Metabolics uses in Metabolics Rosehip Capsules. This type of rose grows naturally in Europe, parts of Africa and parts of Asia.
There are several different species of rosehip, these include R. pouzinii, R. corymbifera, R. glauca and R. Canina. These different species each come with differing levels of phenols, polyphenols and ascorbic acid, with Rosa Canina thought to have the highest concentration of these elements.
Rosehips are naturally high in vitamin C and have a long history of being used in Europe. British children during World War II were often given the task of collecting rosehips in order to make rosehip syrup for its vitamin C content, which was difficult to secure through food at the time during to the German U boat blockade.
Rosehip, particularly from Rosa canina, is predominantly used for joint health as it:
- Helps maintain healthy and flexible joints
- Helps maintain joint mobility
- Contributes to enduring strength of joints
Other benefits of Rosehip and Rosehip Capsules include its aid in the maintenance of healthy digestive, respiratory and immune systems.
As we get older, our joints can become stiffer as a result of the amount of lubricating fluid inside the joint lessens and the cartilage becomes thinner, meaning the joint can become less flexible. This is a natural part of aging but it can be supported through diet and exercise.
Rosehips are predominantly used to support joint health and can help maintain joint strength and flexibility.
The vitamin C content in rosehip extract can also support the immune system, so can be a good solution for those looking to increase their supplementary vitamin C.
Metabolics Rosehip Capsules are made from the extract of Rosa Canina, which is shown to have the highest concentration of phenols, polyphenols and ascorbic acid of all the varieties of rosehip. Like all Metabolics food supplements, Metabolics Rosehip capsules are made using only the highest quality raw ingredients to ensure product purity and optimum bioavailability.
All products are formulated with over 25 years’ experience in food supplement formulation and manufacturing and are made in the UK to strict GMP and HACCP standards.
Metabolics vegan Rosehip Capsules are frequently taking in combination with Metabolics vegan Glucosamine Capsules for all round joint support. Glucosamine is naturally produced in the body and makes up cartilage. As we age, glucosamine decreases and joint cartilage loses its elasticity.
