Double blind studies done in Japan using rosehips on overweight subjects showed that in 12 weeks abdominal fat, visceral fat, body weight, and BMI all decreased significantly in the rosehip group. Rosehip extract appears to be very promising at safely reducing abdominal visceral fat in pre-obese people.

Japanese researchers decided to find out.  They conducted a 12-week, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of 32 people with a body mass index of more than 25 but less than 30.  A BMI in that range is considered overweight but not obese. 

Every day the subjects received a chewable tablet containing either a placebo or 100 mg of rosehip extract.  During the study, the participants didn’t make any changes to their diets or their calorie intake. 

The researchers measured abdominal body fat (subcutaneous and visceral fat), body fat percentage, weight, and body mass index at various times during the trial. 

At week 12 abdominal fat, visceral fat, body weight, and BMI all decreased significantly in the rosehip group compared to their baseline numbers and compared to the placebo group. Body fat percentage in the rosehip group also decreased compared to baseline numbers and compared to the placebo group.
