Rosehip Side Effects: What You Need to Know About

Rosehip Side Effects: What You Need to Know About

Are you thinking about starting Rose-Hip Vital, but are worried about the side effects from taking a rosehip supplement?

The good news is that while our superfood supplement is made with nothing but pure and natural rosehip berries, it’s not associated with any of the same side effects you often hear about, when considering rosehip powders or capsules. This is due to GOPO, our unique anti-inflammatory galactolipid, that allows us to combine the pain-relief benefits of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) with the holistic benefits of rosehip, while being completely free from any known side effects.

Rose-Hip Vital has also been found to have no contraindications, making it perfectly safe to take alongside any existing medication.

Read on to learn all there is to know about rosehip side effects – and the amazing difference of Rose-Hip Vital, our globally bestselling natural anti-inflammatory and wellbeing supplement.

What is Rosehip?

A rosehip is the small bud that forms below the petals on certain species of roses. It contains a plethora of vital micronutrients. People have been harvesting rosehips for centuries, after discovering just how valuable they can be for holistic medicine. Rosehips have been used in teas, marmalades, soups, and even used in balms and salves.

At Rose-Hip Vital, we use patented methods to harvest, dry and manufacture our rosehips. This method activates a unique galactolipid found in some rosehips, called GOPO®.  This active compound is exclusive to Rose-Hip Vital products, and is the source of our scientifically-backed anti-inflammatory benefits.

What are the Benefits of Rosehip?

Rosehip provides many therapeutic benefits, and when you choose to take a rosehip supplement like Rose-Hip Vital, you’re ensuring that you experience the most pure and potent rosehip available – and the safest, thanks to our thorough scientific-backing.

Many rosehip supplements are created using rigorous methods of extraction and manufacture. Rose-Hip Vital’s rosehips are left to grow for years without any human intervention, before they’re harvested, dried, and then milled using patent-protected methods. Our process is gentle yet powerful, and unlocks the unique galactolipid, GOPO.

Thanks to GOPO, Rose-Hip Vital effectively manages swelling and inflammation around joint and cartilage. This means that you can do all the things you love, without being limited by pain and discomfort. Improved mobility helps to keep you active and flexible, for as long as possible.

A high volume of natural vitamin C in every dose helps to keep free radicals at bay, resulting in efficient and effective cellular repair. This allows your body to recover efficiently from injury, makes your skin glow, and means you're less vulnerable to seasonal colds and allergies.

Being in less pain, you’ll be able to fully rest at night, empowering you to wake revitalized and re-energized.

There are so many ways Rose-Hip Vital, made with pure rosehips and rich in natural vitamin C, supports every aspect of your health and wellbeing.

What are the Common Side Effects?

While the therapeutic benefits of rosehips have been known for centuries, there is often discussion around the side effects of rosehip supplements and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.

You’ll be happy to hear that Rose-Hip Vital is free from any known side effects or contraindications. Our rosehip powder is 100% natural and purely plant-based, making it a perfectly safe way to achieve anti-inflammatory, wellbeing and immunity relief.

‘Rosehip’ herbal medicine is often associated with blood coagulation and anticoagulation. This is due to the high volume of natural vitamin C found in rosehips, and its antioxidative effect. The other concern around the rosehips side effects relates to prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs, commonly referred to as NSAIDs, are often associated with cardiovascular and gastrointestinal side effects, particularly for people more vulnerable to this type of discomfort. 

Rose-Hip Vital: the Safe Rosehip Supplement

Rose-Hip Vital has been thoroughly researched, both clinically and scientifically. Our unique rosehip supplement has been included in over 30 studies, including 9 double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. All studies have been peer-reviewed. If you’d like to view them yourself, you can check them out on our website.

Both the University of Copenhagen and the Department of Clinical Microbiology, Copenhagen, have conducted extensive research into Rose-Hip Vital’s links to platelet aggregation (clotting) and platelet cascade (anti-clotting). All studies indicate that Rose-Hip Vital has no links to these side effects, making Rose-Hip Vital a much safer option for vulnerable patients.

In a paper published in Australian Family Physician, Rose-Hip Vital has been found to have no association with gastrointestinal or cardiovascular side effects. This is great news for people who may be relying on anti-inflammatory medication to help with pain management, but who suffer from nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, as a result. The same paper found that Rose-Hip Vital does not interact with existing medication, making it safe to introduce into your existing regime.

Patented manufacturing processes isolate the active compound GOPO® which has scientifically and clinically tested anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.
