Rosehip powder may become a powerful preventative complementary medicine helping to protect cartilage destruction and slowing the progression of Arthritis, according to a ground-breaking Swiss study.
More than 30 scientific studies on a patented Rosehip powder have shown benefits for people with osteoarthritis including reduced pain and inflammation.
The study, published this month in BioCentral, examined the action of Rosehip and the sugary fatty acid galactolipid GOPO®, the active compound in the patented Rosehip powder.
It found Rosehip powder and GOPO® can protect the cartilage cells which facilitate joint movement.
Rosehip may also delay or prevent the early stages of Osteoarthritis through cartilage protection, the study found.
Study author, Joseph Schwager said Rosehip may protect against cartilage destruction in people with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Dr Schwager said the study aimed to pinpoint exactly how Rosehip powder with GOPO®, affected the body's natural inflammatory responses.
During the study, researchers imitated the inflammatory responses associated with Arthritis.
According to Prof Marc Cohen, Head of Complementary Medicine at RMIT, 'the study found that the patented Rosehip powder has an ability to effectively reduce inflammation and slow the processes that damage cartilage in arthritis".
'Previous studies have already revealed that Rosehip relieves Arthritis pain and inflammation for people suffering from both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.
'This study shows that Rosehip may be a powerful preventative medicine against Arthritis. This is particularly important for people in the early stages of Arthritis or those with a genetic history of Arthritis."
'The study also has unlocked some of the molecular and biochemical secrets to exactly how the patented Rosehip powder works. It found that Rosehip was able to help reduce inflammation by reducing cytokines which regulate various inflammatory responses" said Prof Cohen.
