Os­teoarthri­tis is a chronic joint con­di­tion that oc­curs when joint car­ti­lage wears away, al­low­ing bones to scrape and lead­ing to pain, stiff­ness, and swelling. While it has long been be­lieved to be the re­sult of “wear and tear” on the joints, sci­en­tists now credit it as a joint dis­ease.

Di­a­betes and heart dis­ease are not com­monly as­so­ci­ated with arthri­tis, but can be un­for­tu­nate con­se­quences of the joint dis­ease due to seden­tary life­styles taken on by many suf­fer­ers of painful joints.

Pa­tients with os­teoarthri­tis are 30 per­cent more likely to fall than those with­out the joint dis­ease.

If your joints sound like the kitchen cab­i­nets and feel like they got ran over by a bus, it’s time to soothe your pain. Luck­ily, there’s good news—and it’s made out of rose hips.

Rose hips are berry-like parts of the rose bush left be­hind af­ter the bloom has died. They are teem­ing with vi­ta­min C, can­cer-fight­ing phy­to­chem­i­cals, and a galac­tolipid called GOPO. GOPO from Rosa can­ina (dog rose) has been proven in var­i­ous clin­i­cal stud­ies to ex­hibit pow­er­ful anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties, there­fore work­ing to mute symp­toms of in­flam­ma­tory con­di­tions such as os­teoarthri­tis.
