Rose Hips in BioPure Rose Hip Powder are used to modulate inflammation, offer immune system support, and as a popular ingredient in cosmetics, soaps, and skincare.
BioPure Rose Hip Powder has revealed that rose hips are one of nature’s most potent sources of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), holding 25-40 times the amount found in an equivalent weight of orange. Many of the health benefits associated with rose hips are attributed to the high antioxidant value of this ascorbic acid. In addition to the vitamin C, rose hips also contain vitamins A, B, D, E, and K, bioflavonoids, rutin, pectin, selenium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, silicon, iron, lycopene, beta-carotene, dietary fiber, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.
Studies show that regular intake of rose hip powder can have a favorable effect on the body’s chemical pathways that protect cartilage and modulate inflammation, resulting in a significant amount of relief to patients suffering from joint discomfort. These benefits come without harmful side effects such as irritation of the stomach lining, which is often associated with typically prescribed drugs. Rose hip powder can contribute support for those with i irritated tissue in their digestive tract.
BioPure’s rose hip powder has a reddish-orange color and a sweet, astringent flavor. It can easily be dissolved in water or juice, or added to smoothies, cereals, yogurt, ice-cream, and salad dressings. Be creative and try adding it as an ingredient in recipes. When preparing food or drink containing rose hips, do not use aluminum utensils or pans because the metal will react with the ascorbic acid and decrease the valuable vitamin C content. In addition, some people have been known to have an allergic reaction to rose hips. Consult your healthcare provider, and test your reaction to a small amount first.
