Green Bay, WI (January 27, 2006) – EuroPharma’s president Terry Lemerond is pleased to announce that Blue Spring Wellness LLC is introducing the first retail product containing the remarkable new anti-inflammatory Danish rose hip powder. The product featuring HybenVital’s Danish rose hip (LitoZin), will be marketed at retail as JointVitalÔ.
JointVital will be supported by a promotional campaign that includes national television, radio and print advertising to begin February 1, 2006. The product will be sold in health food stores and pharmacies, and by health care practitioners.
Grown only in Denmark, this proprietary subspecies of rose hip is dried and processed utilizing patented methods that preserve the active constituents, particularly a galactolipid known as GOPO. JointVital is standardized for GOPO, identified as the active anti-inflammatory agent. Lemerond, who introduced joint health blockbuster glucosamine sulfate to the US, discovered the Danish rose hip through his network of research facilities in Europe, and has secured the North American rights to the product.
A recent study published in the Scandinavian Journal Rheumatology, A powder made from seeds and shells of a rose-hip subspecies (Rosa canina) reduces symptoms of knee and hip osteoarthritis: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 34:302-308, 2005 by Winther, K. Apel, K and Thomsborg,G., is the continuation of an extensive series of laboratory and clinical investigations on anti-inflammatory and efficacy of rose hip in osteoarthritis.
