Rosehip trials for rheumatoid arthritis

In this trial, 89 participants with rheumatoid arthritis were randomly assigned 5 g of rosehip powder or placebo powder once a day for six months.

  • Those who received rosehip reported greater improvements in disease activity, quality of life, physical function and physical global assessment than the placebo group.
  • There were more dropouts and side-effects in the placebo group.
  • One person in the rosehip group developed vasculitis , but it was unclear whether this was related to the treatment as they were also on several other medications.
