What is arthritis?
So often we take for granted everyday tasks that involve repetitive joint movement. For those suffering with arthritis or joint pain, getting out of bed, driving and even cooking can be incredibly difficult. According to Arthritis NSW, arthritis is a musculoskeletal condition that is characterised by the general inflammation of the joints. You may have heard of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, but what you may not know is that there are over 100 different types of arthritis! The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. According to Arthritis NSW, this is a condition where the cartilage tissue in your joints loses its ability to stretch and bend. In turn this creates painful swelling of the joints. According to Arthritis NSW, rheumatoid arthritis is another common form of arthritis which occurs when the lining of the joints becomes inflamed. This can cause fluid build up, stiffness and swelling. This condition affects nearly half a million Australians!
Who is at risk of developing arthritis?
One of the most shocking facts about arthritis is that it isn't just a condition for older people! Arthritis affects people of all ages, even children! According to Arthritis NSW, one in five people in Australia have some form of arthritis. In another report released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), 28% of the Australian population have some form of arthritis or musculoskeletal conditions. Other statistics from the AIHW showed that 14% of the population have back pain, 8% have osteoarthritis and 2% have rheumatoid arthritis.
How can Rose-Hip Vital help treat joint pain?
Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO is a scientifically and clinically tested pure and natural Rosehip fruit powder. It's full of plant based anti-inflammatory properties, powerful antioxidants and natural vitamin C. This Rosehip powder is used to help with the relief of inflammation and helps to ease joint pain. The plants used in the formulation are left to mature before harvesting, allowing them to develop into the best quality fruit. This also ensures that they are filled with vitamins and minerals! Once the Rosehips are dried and the GOPO compound is isolated, they become a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. According to Rose-Hip Vital, research undertaken on Rose-Hip Vital shows that this powder discourages large amounts of white blood cells from accumulating in the joint. This makes sure that joint inflammation is avoided which alleviates mild arthritic pain.
According to Rose-Hip Vital, in a trial published by the Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology 2005, results showed that after 3 weeks of active treatment with Rose-Hip Vital, 82% of patients saw a reduction in pain. 40% of patients saw such a reduction in pain that they also reduced their consumption of paracetamol.
Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO is perfect for anyone struggling with joint pain, stiffness, swelling, inflammation or even mild arthritis. According to Rose-Hip Vital, it helps to relieve pain and symptoms of osteoarthritis and temporarily relieve the joint pain, swelling and aches associated with mild arthritis.
Did you know that dogs can get arthritis too?!
Humans aren't the only ones that can develop arthritis... dogs can too! As dogs begin to age, the cartilage surfaces in their joints start to thin and die. According to The Bark, these cells release enzymes when they die that cause inflammation and excessive joint fluid. When this cartilage thinning becomes severe, the joint space begins to narrow and the bone can deteriorate. Rose-Hip Vital Canine is ideal for dogs of all ages. It's a plant based complementary animal health product that can help with inflammation and joint health. This powder may also be beneficial for immune system support and improving their overall wellbeing. Full of vitamins and antioxidants, this powder can be used to improve their coat quality, after injury and to support and improve joint health.
