Rose-Hip Vital

In the early 1980′s, a Danish Osteoarthritis sufferer, Erik ‘Farmer’ Hansen, became dissatisfied with prescribed forms of pain relief and his practitioners suggested that he might try rosehip marmalade. ‘Farmer’ Hansen followed this advice and was impressed with the symptomatic relief he experienced.   This began extensive research to find ways to improve the effectiveness of rosehips in the management inflammation and pain caused by aging, arthritis, injury and other medical conditions. 

To ensure continuity of supply and also gain valuable feedback, ‘Farmer’ Hanson took up small-scale production and sale of dried rosehip powder.  This “wonder-cure” was distributed through a local network and to his delight, ‘Farmer’ Hansen received thousands of letters of appreciation from customers who had found great relief from his method of extracting and processing the curative properties of rosehips.

What started as a few acres of rosehip production in the early 1980’s has grown into a large operation of over 200 hectares with more than 40 professional farmers in Denmark and Sweden, exclusively growing rosehip to keep up with the increasing worldwide demand.

No pesticides or fertilizers are used on the plants and nature does all the amazing work, with no artificial interference!  This delivers a pure product that is safe for long-term use and can be administered without any risk of testing positive if swabbed to detect the presence of prohibited substances.

Following his exciting discoveries about the anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties of rosehips, ‘Farmer’ Hansen’ worked to perfect his unique extraction and drying processes which give Rose-Hip Vital.  It’s potency and effectiveness and the process is now protected by patent.
