Some people are confused when it comes to the Rose-Hip Vital family of products. Both understanding the different ways to get your daily dose and which one will work best for you. Below we explain the differences between our dosage options and why you might prefer one option over the other.
Firstly, it should be made clear that although there are different ways to take Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO, the ingredient and benefits are exactly the same. They all contain our 100% natural patented rosehip powder (with no additives) which is a both a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, and also a rich natural source of Vitamin C.
There are two main ways you can take the all natural goodness of Rose-Hip Vital, either as a capsule or in powder form. The answer to the question Which Rose-Hip Vital product is best really comes down to personal preference. Below is a product breakdown to help you decide:
1. Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO (250 capsules)
The first of the family to be introduced into Australia, our 250 capsule bottle requires you to take a 5 capsule daily maintenance dose, starting with 10 capsules a day (ideally 5 in the morning and 5 in the evening) for the 3 week loading dose period.
Five capsules add up to 2.5g of powder encased in a bovine capsule (500mg each). These capsules are a small, easy to swallow size and perfect for people who find it hard to swallow large tablets!
Containing the equivalent of 125g of Rose-Hip Vital powder, the first bottle of 250 capsules will last 25 days and then each bottle thereafter will last 50 days.
2. Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO Joint Health (150 capsules)
We launched these capsules for people who wanted a Rose-Hip Vital option with fewer capsules. We managed to compact the same amount of powder (2.5g) into only 3 capsules (835mg each) as the maintenance dose. The loading dose for the first three weeks means six capsules a day. They are slightly larger than the ones discussed above, but you can take less a day to still benefit from the same daily dosage. Put simply, same dosage, slightly bigger capsules, but less capsules to take. If you want to keep your daily tablet count down, then this is the product for you!
Containing the equivalent of 125g of Rose-Hip Vital powder, the first bottle of 150 capsules will last 25 days and then each bottle thereafter will last 50 days.
One query we often have is what does 3 in 1mean on the label of this bottle? It doesn't refer to the 3 capsule dosage and its doesn't mean there is 3 times the amount in one capsule. What it actually refers to is the 3 powerful benefits of our powder which is perfect for joint health. The natural anti-inflammatory properties, the powerful antioxidant benefits and the rich natural vitamin C.
So dont let the bottles confuse you. There are no different ingredients or benefits between the two. Its the same natural powder with no nasties packed into different size capsules to cater for your personal preferences. If you are someone who finds it hard to swallow capsules, we suggest the smaller capsules above or we do have another product that might be better for you
3. Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO 125g powder
This is Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO powder in its pure form. Its what is contained in our capsules. The recommended dosage of the Rose-Hip Vital powder is 1 scoop (which we include in the container) which equals 2.5g. The loading dose is two scoops. Just like both capsules options, the first 125g of Rose-Hip Vital powder will last 25 days and then each bottle thereafter will last 50 days.
Loved by vegans and smoothie lovers in particular, you can sprinkle the powder over your cereal or yoghurt in the morning, stir it through your favourite juice or add a scoop to your favourite smoothie. It has a fruit flavour and may not fully dissolve in water (so we dont suggest taking in water) but the taste is mild and not overpowering and works perfect in juice.We have some great recipe suggestions including the powder here.
We do however ask you not to heat the powder or mix it with hot drinks or hot food as heat will ruin its effectiveness. In particular, Vitamin C is sensitive to heat.
So, in summary the three Rose-Hip Vital products offer you exactly the same pure rosehip powder with all the benefits of GOPO it just comes down to how you like to add it to your daily routine. Sip it down three or five times, or mix it up in your favourite food or drink.
