SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

When evaluating the science supporting a product, it’s important to ascertain the level of testing, with the most detailed level being double-blind placebo controlled clinical trials. These trials are then published in independent peer- reviewed medical, pharmacology and health journals.

Rose-Hip Vital® Equine is supported by over 30 scientific papers including 9 clinical trials, unique to Rose-Hip Vital® products, which have been published in peer reviewed journals internationally and is now acknowledged as the leader in the field of manufactured Rosehip products.



The Science

Rosehip has been the subject of a significant new study published in the of medical journal Phytomedicine – Rosehip herbal remedy in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis – a randomised controlled trial – which has shown that patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis may benefit from additional treatment with Rosehip powder with Galactolipid (GOPO®).

A presentation by Joseph Schwager, Phd, at the APLAR conference Asia Pacific League of Associations for Rheumatology conference in Japan titled The Galactolipid GOPO Mediates Beneficial Effects of Rose Hip on Arthritis by Reducing Chemokine and Interleukin Production in Macrophages and Chondrocytes, showed that an active compound, when isolated from the Rosehip, may play a role in assisting in the rebuilding and protection of cartilage.

A study released by Arasalan Kharazmi, Phd, at OARSI (Osteoarthritis Research Society International) – Laboratory and preclinical studies on the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties of rosehip powder – Identification and characterisation of the active component GOPO® – demonstrate through assessment of in vitro studies that rosehip powder exhibits anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant activities.

A trial published in the Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology – A Powder made from seeds and shells of Rosehip Subspecies (Rosa Canina L) reduces the symptoms of Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis: a Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled Trial – showed that 82% of patients reported a reduction in pain after 3 weeks of active treatment with GOPO®. Pain was alleviated to such an extent that 40% reduced their consumption of parecetamol.
