The movable joints and weight-bearing bones experience much wear and tear as the body ages. The most common health problems associated with age are osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a joint disease which affects the cartilage – the tissue which covers the ends of the bones in a joint to allow the bones to smoothly glide over each other while absorbing shock of movement. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, but occurs most often in the hips, knee, finger joints and also the big toe. Aging adults who have previously experienced joint injuries stand a greater risk of developing osteoarthritis.
Rosehip Benefits for Osteoarthritis
A study conducted in 2005 showed that just after taking Rosehip supplements for 3 weeks 82% of people with osteoarthritis reported a reduction in pain. In fact, their pain was reduced to such an extent that 40% of the people reduced the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This study also found that taking rosehip supplements for continued duration resulted in increased joint mobility, better management of joint pain with greater relief along with reduced joint stiffness while walking.
Not only does Rosehip provide relief from painful symptoms of osteoarthritis but it may also help prevent the progression or onset of the problem by helping to protect and rebuild cartilage.
