How much do I take?
At Rose-Hip Vital, we’re famous for our gentle, patented extraction process, which allows us to take a natural superfood, and supercharge it. Our unique manufacturing allows us to isolate and activate the anti-inflammatory benefits of the active compound GOPO®, a powerhouse defender against chronic inflammation, without compromising the 31 naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals. In fact, a single dosage of Rose-Hip Vital contains over 46mg of Vitamin C alone, a heat-sensitive vitamin that is often undermined in harmful manufacturing practices.
You may be wondering how best to nourish your own body with this supercharged supplement. Well, we’re here to break it down for you.
What is my recommended dosage?
For humans, it’s as simple as 5gs a day. There’s no maintenance dosage, which you might have noticed in our canine or equine ranges. For two-legged consumers it’s a steady, daily dosage. Just how you take your 5gs will depend on what product you’ve purchased.
Powder vs. Capsules
If you’re a multi-user household, you may have purchased one of our tubs of powder. This is a great choice, because our powders can be shared among human, equine and canine consumers. We package the same patented Rose-Hip Vital powder into all of our powdered products, in a food-grade facility, ensuring it’s safe for human consumption. We have an article explaining why we do this HERE. This is a great option for multi-user households because it keeps your costs down, while keeping the health of your family members (two and four-legged) skyrocketing.
It’s not just for multi-user households, either! We find our powders are a great option for people looking to mix their dosage in with other foods. Remember, keep it cool, as hot foods and liquids will undermine the potency of the supplement. Some of our favourites are yoghurt, cereal, smoothies, or simply a delicious glass of juice!
If you’ve chosen to go with our GOPO 125g Patented Rose-Hip Vital Powder option, 2 scoops a day is all you’ll need to supercharge your system. This equates to 2 teaspoons, just incase you misplace your scoop!
Capsules are your other option, and to help you decide which capsule type to purchase, consider how many tablets you’d be comfortable consuming each day. The only difference between these two products is the individual capsule size (approximately 10%)! We use the same patented Rose-Hip Vital powder in both capsule types, and they’re both bound in a bovine-gelatine casing.
Here’s a breakdown of the recommended daily dosage of our capsules:
Rose-Hip Vital Joint Health with GOPO 150 capsules, our larger capsule, has a recommended daily dosage of 3 capsules, twice a day.
Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO 250 capsules, our smaller capsule, has a recommended daily dosage of 5 capsules, twice a day.
Ways to Consume Your Powder
So you’ve decided on the powder (woohoo! You’ve just jet-packed your body’s immune response!) and now you’re wondering how to take it.
It’s as simple as mixing 2 scoops in with something cool. Remember, heat will diminish the potency of the supplement, so always add it to something either refrigerated, or at room temperature. We generally opt for smoothies, but you could also add it to muesli and yoghurt, a bowl of cereal, or a glass of juice.
Hey, even a bowl of ice cream would work. It’s all in the name of good health, after all…
So now you know your dosage. Your brain is buzzing with ideas about how you’re going to supercharge your antioxidant intake and combat inflammation. You might at last be wondering if Rose-Hip Vital can fit into your existing supplement regime. Once again, the answer is one big YUP! It sure can!
