2021 Research: Rose Hip as Immune Modulatory Supplement
In this 2021 research, Tihauan et al. examine the freeze dried extract of rose hip, sea buckthorn, and bilberries. The scientists explain and illustrate the oxidation and anti oxidation system in the body and how these extracts help to create a state of health in the body and strengthen the immune system. An excellent research. Read the excerpt below to see all the health building effects of rose hip.
Immune functions are indispensable in defending the body against pathogens and thus play a vital role in maintaining health. Immune functions are disturbed by malnutrition, aging, physical and mental stress or unwanted lifestyle. Therefore, the intake of immuno- modulatory dietary supplements is considered effective in improving immune functions and reducing the incidence of immunological disorders.
The main focus of this study was to evaluate the antioxidative status of lyophilized [freeze dried] plant extracts, such as rosehip (Rosa canina), sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia) and bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus), their cytotoxicity and nutritional status, in order to effectively utilize them as ingredients in a dietary supplement with immunomodulatory properties. article
Excerpt from the article: Since R. canina [rose hip], especially its hip, is rich in vitamin C and phenolic compounds, it has been used for its antioxidant properties to prevent or even treat various ailments. The beneficial effects of the consumption of R. canina however, are not limited to its antioxidant properties. It is indeed valued for its antibacterial and antidiabetic properties too. Moreover, it has been approved in a variety of researches that R. canina is capable of reducing cardiovascular diseases through decreasing blood pressure and LDL without having any side effect. It is also an efficient plant against osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, especially with regard to its anti-inflammatory properties and its capacity to reduce pain (BHAVE, 2017; PATEL, 2013; SAABY, 2011; SELAHVARZIAN, 2018).
