Rosehip (Rosa canina L.) is an essential component used in vitamin C supplementation, known for its antioxidant properties.

The rose hip fruits contain Galactolipid (GOPO), an anti-inflammatory compound. The product is particularly recommended in the supplementation of vitamin deficiencies, boosting natural immunity, and during convalescence.
