What is Rosehip? Rosehips work in a similar way to aspirin. They hinder an important group of enzymes (known as COX-1 and COX-2) involved in the pain and inflammation process. A substance found in rosehips has also been shown to inhibit the activity of inflammatory white blood cells, while also lowering levels of inflammatory markers in the blood. The immune system can contribute to rheumatic diseases. An inflammatory cytokine called Interleukin 1-Beta (IL-1²) causes cartilage cells to produce proteins that digest and break down join tissue. In moderation, this process encourages cell turnover, but in excess, this process contributes to long-term joint tissue degradation, which is what causes joint problems. While rose hip doesn’t reduce IL-1² levels in the blood, it interferes with its ability to activate catabolic proteins. Rosehip also contains Vitamin C which has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances that can override harmful molecules (free radicals) which are produced within your cells and which may cause tissue damage or disease. Other studies have found that it can reduce the production of specific enzymes that break down cartilage. What May Rosehip Help With? Research in Denmark and Germany used a rose hip remedy. The results showed that the remedy was actually very beneficial in treating rheumatoid arthritis.
