Do you swim, bike and run? Have you set yourself some race goals for this triathlon season? How are your joints coping?
If you are participating in triathlon, swimming, biking and running regularly, your joints may be suffering.
An active lifestyle requires healthy mobile joints allowing repetitive movement free of pain, stiffness or discomfort. The more active we are, and as we age, the more we damage our joints. Sporting activities can result in injury or niggling joint pain. Ignoring the signs of joint problems can allow it to escalate to something bigger, especially when you push through the pain and keep training and competing.
Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO is the perfect natural anti-inflammatory and immunity support for triathletes and its backed by science!
Common ailments for sports enthusiasts include ITB problems, knee reconstructions, hip and back pain, bursitis in the joints and feet problems such as plantar fasciitis. All these joint issues can be helped by taking Rose-Hip Vital.
We have a number of triathletes who have shared their stories on how Rose-Hip Vital has kept their joints healthy so they can compete in the sport they love.
Pete McLean has competed in triathlons for over 15 years. He mainly races Ironman distance which requires consistent training across all three sports and often long distances. He developed shoulder pain that needed cortisone injections until he discovered Rose-Hip Vital. Now the pain has gone (and doesn't return unless he stops taking his capsules regularly) so he can continue to swim and compete in the sport he loves.
Mel Brunker is fairly new to Ironman triathlon but she has always been active and was recommended Rose-Hip Vital many years ago. She has had a super year both competing in her first Ironman event and then qualifying and competing at the Ironman World Championships. She has not stopped taking Rose-Hip Vital for injury prevention, recovery and overall wellbeing.
Martin Cominotto is a Pharmacist who also enjoys Ironman triathlons as well as marathons and endurance races. He has a knee problem that he was told would only be resolved if he had an operation. He decide to give Rose-Hip Vital a go instead, and the result was that he no longer needed an operation and continued enjoy the sport that he loves.
So how does Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO work?
The anti-inflammatory properties and overall effectiveness of Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO are due to patented manufacturing processes which ensure the final product contains natural vitamin C, antioxidants and most importantly the fatty acid/galactolipid GOPO. Backed by more than 30 scientific studies including 9 double-blind placebo controlled trials, Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO is the only Rosehip product in Australia with scientifically and clinically tested anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.
Taking Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO regularly can assist in joint mobility and reduce inflammation and joint damage. While there is no cure for the degeneration of joint cartilage, it may help to rebuild and protect cartilage, reducing inflammation, swelling and stiffness as shown in a 2011 Swiss Study.

The vitamin C and antioxidant combination in Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO also provides significant support to the immune system which helps discourage the attack on joints. It means it can help with recovery between training sessions and offer immune support when undertaking intense training periods.
Many athletes use glucosamine when faced with joint problems and injury. However, studies comparing the effects of glucosamine and Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO for joint inflammation have shown that Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO is more effective. Click here to read the study.
