Arthritis Rose-Hip Vital
Rosehip is quickly taking the mantle as a leader in the Complementary Therapy sector, as the discussion about claims rages on and legislators, consumers and manufacturers debate the issue of claims relating to Complementary Therapies.
Marking the commencement of Arthritis Week 2012, the call for tighter control about claims is reaching a crescendo.
One Complementary Therapy is Rosehip, which has risen to the fore as a standout therapy, supported by a significant body of scientific evidence.
According to Prof Marc Cohen, Professor of Complementary Medicine at RMIT University, the substantial weight of research behind Rosehip is helping to convince doctors that it may be effective as a first-line therapy for people suffering the symptoms of Arthritis.
"While there are many unsubstantiated claims in the marketplace, Rosehip is backed by more than 30 scientific studies including 4 double blind placebo controlled trials, over the last decade," Prof Cohen said.
"These studies suggest that Rosehip may be an effective first-line therapy for osteoarthritis sufferers."
"In particular, the studies have found the anti-inflammatory power of Rosehip is reported to have similar effects to indomethacin - a prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
"The anti-inflammatory properties of standardised Rosehip may make it a viable replacement or supplement for conventional drug therapies in inflammatory diseases such as Arthritis.
"Rosehip has been found to significantly reduce inflammation and pain for people with osteoarthritis.
Prof Cohen said Rosehip's anti-inflammatory action has been attributed to high quantities of galactolipids, a class of compounds which have shown anti-inflammatory activity in various studies.
"A particular galactolipid unique to the patented powder Rose-Hip Vital, named GOPO®, has been shown to be responsible for the clinically observed anti-inflammatory properties of standardized rose hip powder.
Prof Cohen said the studies found Rosehip has no known side-effects and may be used alongside conventional treatments as well as potentially replacing or reducing the reliance on anti-inflammatory and other pain medication.
"Research shows rosehip doesn't have the potential side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin and is suitable for people at increased risk from the gastrointestinal or cardiovascular side effects of NSAID. The Rosehip Studies - What the Research Says
