What is this product?
Rose Hips Plus Inflammatory Balance is a dietary supplement formulated to help support a healthy inflammatory function. The product contains plant extracts derived from rosehips, grapevine, blueberries and blackberries, a combination designed to support healthy inflammation responses, particularly in those with stressful lifestyles or genetic predispositions that increase the likelihood of inflammatory imbalances.
How does this product work?
Rose Hips Plus Inflammatory Balance can help maintain a normal inflammatory response in the face of modern-day stressors. Inflammation is a normal part of the immune system’s response to injury and infection and as the body heals, inflammation will subside over time. However, in some instances, particularly in today’s stressful busy world, one’s inflammatory response can become imbalanced and be activated in a persistent fashion, which if continues unabated, can lead to detrimental and negative health outcomes.
One such instance is called “circadian misalignment”, where the circadian clock located in the brain becomes mismatched with light-dark cycle of night and day, resulting in stress-responses in body tissues. Circadian misalignment occurs after sleep-deprivation, jet lag after traveling across time zones, alternate or shifting work schedules, and even in cases of social jet lag—those instances where one undergoes too little sleep during the work-week but uses the weekend to get catch-up, extra sleep hours. Ample scientific research has shown instances of circadian misalignment result in imbalanced inflammation of body tissues, which can damage our health over time. Life today provides few of us the luxury to naturally awaken and fall asleep with the cycles of the sun, resulting in circadian misalignment and an imbalanced inflammatory function. Other lifestyle factors are also associated with inflammatory function; obesity, unhealthy diets, tobacco use, and genetic predispositions. Rose Hips Plus Inflammatory Balance is a dietary supplement designed with ingredients that help support a healthy inflammatory response, particularly for individuals who have lifestyles or genetic predispositions likely to produce imbalanced inflammation.
What is the purpose for combining the primary ingredients together in this product?
Stressful life situations, circadian dysregulation, and sometimes, individual genetics, are all associated with imbalanced inflammatory responses that can lead to negative health outcomes over time. Together the ingredients- Rose Hip, Blackberry, Wild Blueberry, and Grape Vine Extracts- are combined to create a powerful blend of plant extracts to help promote a more balanced and healthy inflammatory response in the face of everyday stressors of modern life.
What scientific evidence is there to support this product?
Rose hip extract is well known for its inflammatory-balancing effects. Laboratory experiments have shown rose hips to have anti-inflammatory properties and to inhibit mediators of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is one non-specific marker that indicates inflammation in the body. Rose hip extract has been shown to help maintain normal CRP levels in situations likely to cause inflammation. Rose hip extract also contains compounds of galactolipids and vitamin C, antioxidants that help protect against oxidative damage.
Blackberry and Wild Blueberry extract contain anthocyanins and hydrocinnamic acids, compounds shown in scientific research to produce antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Grape vine extract, derived from the newly sprouted shoots of the grape vine plant, contains the compounds trans-resveratrol to support antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.
Blended together, these four extracts provide a powerful combination that supports the maintenance of normal C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and promotes a healthy inflammatory system, particularly in modern-day circumstances that are likely to unbalance normal inflammation process.
