I became aware of Rose- Hip Vital a little more than a year ago when speaking to a Naturopath (Fiona) at Chemist Warehouse in Greensborough. She introduced me to it after explaining to her that I have trouble with glucosamine upsetting my stomach. Fiona said she had good feedback with the fairly new product Rose Hip Vital and that I should try it and let her know.
I have been on Mobic for some years but found it helped only a little and still had trouble with arthritis in my fingers, knees and my back. As I work part time as a beauty adviser in a retail store, I am on my feet on cold hard tiles and felt that I would have to give up my job, as it was becoming too painful.
After 3 weeks on Rose Hip Vital, not only was I free from pain but my fingers were more nimble and I was able to make a fist with my hand. I had been unable to do this with my left hand due to not being able to bend my pointer finger. I am now on 6 capsules a day (due winter) but summer I take it down to 5. Some months ago I ran out of them and did not take them for 3 days, and it did mot take long for the pain and stiffness to return.
