Rosehip is a medicinal plant rich in flavonoids and vitamin C, ten times higher than the amounts contained in citrus fruit juice.
Ascorbic acid is an essential vitamin as it stimulates the synthesis of collagen; facilitates tissue healing and growth; regulates the production of carnitine, some neurotransmitters and hormones; regulates the absorption and use of important nutritional factors (iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, etc.); improves the immune system’s response by increasing the production of antibodies and strengthening the function of phagocytes; participates in the processes of cell respiration; modulates allergies and inflammatory processes.
Thanks to all these properties, vitamin C is traditionally indicated to prevent cardio-circulatory diseases and winter illnesses such as cold and flu.
Natural vitamin C is more effective than its synthesised form because it is always associated with a compound of substances, the bioflavonoids, which have a synergic and complementary action and improve its absorption, bioavailability and functionality.
Modern lifestyle, pollution, the influence of electronic devices, not to mention cigarette smoking (1 cigarette destroys 25mg of vitamin C), are all factors that increase our needs of vitamin C.
As a result, even when our diet is balanced, its supplementation often becomes necessary.
Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) is mainly known for its ability to act in synergy with vitamins E and A as an antioxidant agent fighting free radicals and neutralising the oxidative damage that they cause to the membrane’s phospholipids and cell nucleus.
Rosa C is indicated to support the immune system (people who smoke, have diabetes or chronic diseases), to prevent winter illnesses (cold and flu), to contrast cellular ageing and the damages caused by exposure to air pollution and UVB radiation. It can also be particularly useful for sportspeople and all those who wish to increase their muscle mass.
