The Anti-inflammatory Properties Of Rose-hip
Notes for this study:
||Non-randomized controlled trial
|Number of Subjects
Supplementation of either 10g or 45g rose hip powder extract to otherwise healthy men for one month was able to reduce C-reactive protein concentrations (up to 30-35%) and reduced chemotaxis of polymorphonuclear leukocytes by up to 50% (low dose) and 65% (high dose). It was also noted in four of the persons characterized by high physical work (due to their occupation) that rosehip alleviated joint discomfort.
All changes returned to baseline values after cessation of rosehip supplementation.
