Osteoporosis and joint pain cause a disruption of many daily routines. What can help alleviate and support a healthy function of joints?
A recent by Tolekova et al. in 2020 examine the freeze dried extract of rose hip's health properties for joints and osteoporosis. Rose hip has been used to treat a cough, asthma, the common cold, and rheumatism and gout. It is superb for joint health and osteoporosis.
In fact, rose hip has been used since 23-79 AD! Pliny the Elder was the first person to describe the healing properties of Rosa for dog bites, and hence the name "dog rose." From there, the therapeutic abilities of the rose hip have been added on, from treating the mouth in the first century to using it as the main source of Vitamin C in United Kingdom during WWII.
Rose hip is rich in anti-inflammatory properties, minerals and vitamins content. The leaves of wild rose (which the Phyto Power has along with the fruit) have biologically active substances as carotenoids, chlorophylls, tocopherols and flavonoids. Article
Currently, increased attention is paid to plant raw materials as a source of biologically active substances. As a consequence of this great scientific interest is dog rose (lat. Rosa), a genus of wild plants of the Rosaceae family (Rosales) and it is widely used as a medicinal, vitamin source and food raw material. The species of Rosa genus have rich vitamin content and different chemical structures. Dog rose has medicinal value as a multivitamin remedy. Many works have been devoted to the study of the dynamics of the accumulation of vitamins depending on the forms and types of dog rose, geographic location, meteorological conditions, soil, fertilizer application and other environmental factors. The most economically valuable part of the dog rose is the pulp of the fruit. Rosa is used in official and traditional medicine. They also have anti-inflammatory, choleretic, diuretic properties and a beneficial effect on carbohydrate metabolism and, they regulate the activity of the gastrointestinal tract, enhance tissue regeneration, the synthesis of hormones. In this review article, antioxidant, pharmacological, medical properties and chemical content of the Rosa genus has been discussed in detail. Article
Excerpt from the article: Clinical, randomized, controlled studies have shown that the fruits, rosehips and seeds improve the condition of patients with osteoarthritis....
Rosa leaves occupy the second place in the content of ascorbic acid concerning the vegetative part of the plant . In the leaves of wild rose, the presence of such biologically active substances as carotenoids, chlorophylls, tocopherols and flavonoids has been revealed [35, 40]. Ascorbic acid is found in significant amounts in products of plant origin (Rosa hips, primrose leaves, etc.) and it plays an important role in the vital activity of the organism. Due to the presence of a diene group in the molecule, ascorbic acid has strongly pronounced reducing (antioxidant) properties .
Phyto Power combines the three winning weight lowering plants of Blueberries, Rosehip, and Dandelion. 2 capsules a day preferably in the AM.
