BENEFITS EXPLAINED

Antioxidants
Rosehips contain antioxidants that are useful for sustaining healthy bodies. Studies have proven that antioxidants protect against particular illnesses like cancer, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Vitamin C Content
Rosehips are one of the richest plant sources of Vitamin C. The powerful Vitamin C and anti-oxidant combination supports the immune system of the horse, which subsequently improve the general health and wellness of the horse as well as repair damaged tissue. Bioflavonoids contained in Rosehips enhance vitamin C’s ability to strengthen blood vessels, and this encourages healthy hoof growth in horses. Not only are bioflavonoids key in illness prevention, it also assists in restoring the immune system after illness.

Arthritic Advantages
A protein present in rosehips, collagen assist in the prevention of osteoarthritis by boosting the immune system, thereby shielding joint tissue from materials that harm them.

Other Nutrients
Rosehips contain vitamins E, D, and A, along with antioxidants that support the immune system.  These nutrients assist in fighting allergies, aids recovery after surgery, injury or exercise, and can act as an appetite stimulant. It also promotes healthy, shiny coats.
