Strange Fruit JUMPSTARTS Your Weight Loss

If you’re like most Americans, you start every New Year with the resolution to finally lose a few pounds.

But after a few dedicated weeks, it can feel next to impossible to actually lose the weight!

You cut down on portions… you exercise like crazy… and it hardly makes a difference.

Well, maybe you’re trying too hard.

Exciting new research proves that a common flower can help you MELT away unwanted pounds.

And here’s the best part…

You don’t have to change your diet AT ALL.

Now that’s a happy New Year!

Roses are an international symbol of beauty.

But traditional healers are more interested in the fruit of the plant – called the rose hip –than the flower itself.

For thousands of years, the rose hip has been used to treat all sorts of health conditions.

Now we know it works wonders for people looking to lose weight, too. 

In a Japanese double-blind, controlled trial, 32 people with a body mass index (BMI) between 25 and 30 – considered overweight but not obese – were given either 100 mg of rose hip extract or a placebo daily.


After 12 weeks, the folks taking rose hip extract:

  • Lowered their BMIs
  • Lost weight
  • Had less belly fat

And, again, they ate whatever they wanted.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

Well, it’s not.

You see, rose hips have a compound called tiliroside that accelerates fat metabolism and improves your body’s use of glucose.

That gives you more energy and prevents fat from building up in your tissue.

Plus, tiliroside has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties.

If you’re looking to lose some pounds this year, rose hip extract could be the answer.  

It’s available at most health food stores or online from manufacturers like TerraVita and Nature’s Sunshine in organic, supplement form.
