Improve your horse’s joint health and wellbeing

Reduce inflammation, protect cartilage and boost immunity

Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is a plant-based anti- inflammatory and immune system support for your horse’s joint health and general wellbeing.

Patented extraction and drying processes isolate and activate the compound GOPO® which has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.

Sophie Bennett, Event Rider

14 year old Sophie Bennett has been out achieving some outstanding results on her big Irish Sport Horse Branigans Irish Connection or Connie as she is affectionately known. They stepped up to 1* together in 2017 and won 3 out of 5 of their 1* starts, placed 2nd in the CCIJ 1* at Melbourne International 3 Day Event in June and topped off the season with Sophie winning the 2017 Victorian Eventers, Amateur Event Rider of the Year.

“I’m really surprised and grateful to have had the journey so far with Connie. We have been learning together as Connie had never evented past EvA95 before. We cannot go to 2* until 2019 due to my age and Connie is almost 17. I started Connie on Rose-hip Vital over a month ago and she is feeling fantastic. She is strong and is moving really well. With the help of Rose-Hip Vital I’m hoping that Connie will still feel so well and look forward to stepping up to 2* in 18 months time. I’m really grateful to Justin and the team at Rose-Hip Vital for supporting me”.

Capped hock injury

November 24, 2017:

“My Mare was having difficulties getting over her Capped Hock injuries which she sustained in August 17. Constantly limping, very swollen and standing on 3 legs, she had 3 vet visits, injections, weeks of Bute meds, compression wraps day on day off, roll on cortisone, Tuff Rock, magnesium and Isolation. Not improving greatly, I decided to give Rose-Hip Vital Equine a go. It has been four weeks now and all of the swelling has disappeared, hocks are enlarged but will probably stay that way. She doesn’t hold her leg up, she is moving freely and we went on a 2 day trail ride (very hilly and steep) last week and she never looked back. I will continue with Rose-Hip Vital indefinitely. Many Thanks.”

Fast forward to March 9, 2018:

“My mare is doing fine thanks to Rose-Hip Vital, we never miss a day of a scoop in her night feed. One hock is still a little fluidy, but over ll she is 100% better and I owe it all to this amazing product. Have attached a couple of pics of my best friend. Cheers. Ps. There’s no stopping her now!”

BACKED BY SCIENCE

Supported by more than 30 scientific studies including 9 double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials, Rose-Hip Vital® with GOPO® is a scientifically and clinically tested plant-based anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and natural source of vitamin C used to improve joint health and wellbeing of active and ageing horses.

The active compound GOPO® helps to maintain healthy joints, reduce stiffness and inflammation and assist in improving mobility and recovery.

THE SCIENCE

A randomised, controlled study on trotters during a three-month intervention period on the absorption of natural vitamin C and antioxidative capacity in horses suggests that the natural vitamin C from Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is absorbed sufficiently to raise serum vitamin C concentration and to reduce the liberation of oxidative anions.

A randomized placebo controlled double blind study on the effect of Rose-Hip Vital® Equine on the immune system, working capacity and behavior of horses resulted in a decline in neutrophil chemotaxis which indicated enhanced anti-inflammatory activity in horses. Rose-Hip Vital® powder also significantly improved antioxidant capacity when estimated as chemilumenescence.

Laboratory and pre-clinical studies on the anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties of a specialised rosehip powder – Identification and characterisation of the active component GOPO® – demonstrate through assessment of in vitro studies that rosehip powder exhibits anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidative activity.
