Rose hips have been linked to numerous benefits, including improved immunity, heart health, weight loss, and skin ageing.
In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, a daily intake of rosehip extract to help decrease belly fat was investigated.
The study was conducted with a 12-week, single-centre, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of 32 subjects who had a body mass index of between 25 and 30.
The subjects were assigned to two random groups, and they received one tablet of placebo or rosehip that contained 100 mg of rosehip extract once each day for 12 weeks with no dietary intervention.
The abdominal fat area and body fat percent of each patient was measured alongside body weight and body mass index.
The study found an impressive weight loss in the rosehip group indicating the supplement may be beneficial for burning fat.
