Rose Guard

Helps protect the body’s cells and enhances the benefits of other antioxidants.


We know that antioxidants are good for us. 

They help protect our body cells from damage by neutralizing the "free-radical" molecules that bombard us every day. Many fruits and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals known for their antioxidant qualities. Unfortunately, we don't always have time to eat the right amount of these foods, so we take antioxidant supplements.

What we may not know is that rosemary extract, along with other herbs, can help speed up and regenerate the antioxidants we take. Herbalife's Rose Ox ™ is the first of a new generation of antioxidants with a cascading effect. The cascade effect refers to the unique ability to change into a series of progressively active forms, which can help create a dramatically more potent, longer-lasting result. Rose Ox ™ has the further capability to help regenerate other antioxidants, including vitamin E, which do not have this advantage.

Rosemary is a very versatile herb cultivated from an evergreen-type shrubbery with pine needle-like leaves. The plant features blue flowers and can grow to heights of three to five feet in warm, humid environments.

In addition to possessing antioxidant properties, scientific studies shows that the scent ofrosemary also works as a memory stimulant - perfect for busy adults at the office, or even for kids doing their homework.

Other health-related properties of fragrant rosemary include facilitating digestion, soothing menstrual cramps and calming the nerves. Rosemary can even be used for cosmetic purposes such as an effective hair conditioning and strengthening treatment and as an astringent or skin toner.
