Anderson et al. (2011) demonstrated the powerful anti-obesity effects of rose hip in their research entitled, Rose hip exerts antidiabetic effects via a mechanism involving downregulation of the hepatic lipogenic program.
Two different parts of the 2011 research provided a window into rose hip’s weight lowering power.
In Study A, labeled the preventative study, 20 mice were divided into two groups, the control group and the rose hip fed group. Both groups were fed the high-fat diet during the 20 week trial but the rose hip group showed a markedly lower body weight gain compared to the control group: 7.1 grams vs. 17.1 grams.
In Study B, labeled the intervention study, 10 mice were divided into two groups, the control group and the rose hip fed group. Both groups were fed the same low-fat diet during their 10 week trial but the control group kept gaining body weight while the rose hip group immediately started to lose weight. By at the end of the study, the difference in the body weight of the two groups was pronounced with the rose hip group average weight being 28.6 grams and the control being 38.5 grams.
Anderson et al. (2011) summarized that high doses of rose hip are capable of both preventing and reversing the increase in body weight. Another dramatic beneficial aspect of rose hip supplementation: Hepatic lipids were reduced by >50% following the rose hip intake as a result of down-regulation of the hepatic lipogenic program. The researchers theorized that this may represent a major mechanism underlying the improvement in insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. Finally, they concluded that their results show great promise for the use of more moderate doses of rose hip to improve glucose tolerance and lower body weight in humans.

Type 2 diabetes is strongly associated with obesity; 90% of all patients with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. Both type 2 diabetes (T2D) and obesity are also strongly associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the most common liver disease worldwide. More than 70% of subjects with T2D and/or obesity are affected with NAFLD (Anderson et al., 2011).
