The difference between natural and synthetic Vitamin C

Vitamin C has long been considered one of natures most potent allies in combating cold and flu symptoms because of its antihistamine capabilities, but did you know that many Vitamin C products on the market are either highly refined, or synthetic, meaning that your body eliminates them before any benefits have been absorbed into your system?

Vitamin C is water-soluble and must be regularly replenished to be an effective aid. For this reason, naturally-occurring sources are the best way to ensure your body recognises it as fuel and effectively manages it.

Many people know that you can inflate your Vitamin C intake by consuming certain fruits and vegetables, like oranges and carrots, and because these resources are in large supply in our country they make a great natural source of Vitamin C. A less-common but powerhouse producer of Vitamin C is the Rosa Canina berry, the superfood source of Rose-Hip Vital®. Rosa Canina belongs to the Rosehip family of berries, certain types of which contain more than sixty times the Vitamin C found in an orange!

While rosehips grow naturally in South Africa and South America, Rose-Hip Vital® source our berries from Denmark, where the harvest is allowed to deeply root and mature for up to four years without any artificial interference. A patented extraction and drying method isolates 23 naturally-occurring minerals and 8 vitamins, including Vitamin C, from every yield. This process is not only exclusive to Rose-Hip Vital®, but scientific research has found it to amplify the potency of the vitamins and minerals its extracts.

Rose-Hip Vital® does not have Halal certification in Singapore. It is important to note that Rose-Hip Vital® is a natural and plant-based powder made from the rosehip plant, and it doesn't contain any animal-derived ingredients. The capsule is the only component containing bovine gelatin.

Rose-Hip Vital® is not suitable for addressing sports injuries such as ruptured tendons, ligaments, or dislocated knee caps. In these cases, medical care or surgery may be necessary.

Additionally, Rose-Hip Vital® is not advised for conditions like slipped discs, spine disc issues, hernias, or torn shoulder tendons. Tendon healing and repair involve various factors, and tendons, in particular, tend to have limited blood supply, which is crucial for the healing process. Unlike muscles, tendons rely on this blood supply to support their recovery.

Cartilage damage is the wearing down of a tough, flexible tissue called cartilage, which covers the ends of bones at joints. Cartilage acts as a cushion and allows bones to move smoothly, reducing friction and preventing them from rubbing against each other. Damaged or worn out cartilage can cause pain, swelling, and loss of motion in the joint.

Cartilage cannot regenerate easily as it lacks a direct blood supply, and its cells (chondrocytes) have limited ability to reproduce and repair damaged tissue.

Like all other joint supplements, Rose-Hip Vital® is unable to repair damaged cartilage, but it may prevent further cartilage loss by arresting and breaking the cycle of the inflammation. Excessive or uncontrolled inflammation can lead to further tissue damage, and the patented compound GOPO® in Rose-Hip Vital® works by preventing excessive white blood cell accumulation at the affected area.
