What is Cherokee Rose Extract?
Rosa laevigata, the Cherokee rose, is a white, fragrant rose native to southern China and Taiwan south to Laos and Vietnam, and invasive in the United States.
It is an evergreen climbing shrub, scrambling over other shrubs and small trees to heights of up to 5–10 metres (16–33 ft). The leaves are 3–10 centimetres (1.2–3.9 in) long, with usually three leaflets, sometimes five leaflets, bright glossy green and glabrous. The flowers are 6–10 centimetres (2.4–3.9 in) diameter, fragrant, with pure white petals and yellow stamens, and are followed by bright red and bristly hips 2–4 centimetres (0.79–1.57 in) diameter. The flower stem is also very bristly.
Health Benefits of Cherokee Rose Extract
1. Lipid-lowering Effects
Fructus Rosae Laevigatae was shown to reduce serum cholesterol and β-lipoprotein level in rabbits and lower their degree of atherosclerosis.
2. Inhibitory Effects on Smooth Muscle Contraction
Cherokee rose extract was shown to reduce the urination frequency in rats, prolong the urination interval and increase the urine volume for each urination episode. In other experiments, it was reported that Fructus Rosae Laevigatae could antagonize convulsive contractions of isolated smooth bladder muscles of rats as well as antagonize the contractive response of a rabbit’s aorta caused by nor-adrenaline. It was also shown to inhibit the autonomic contractions of isolated jejunums (a part of the small intestine) in rabbits that were pretreated with acetylcholine and barium chloride.
3. Relieve Diarrhea
Rats with diarrhea induced by administration of Rheum palmatum solution were given by gavage a Fructus Rosae Laevigatae water decoction. The herb was stir-fried with bran and processed with honey before the preparation of the decoction. Results showed that the herb had good effects in relieving diarrhea.
Dosage of Cherokee Rose Extract
A decoction is typically made with 6-12g of cherokee rose and three to four cups of boiling water until the volume is reduced by half. A decoction is usually taken orally and split into two doses but this dose may taken all at once or escalated depending on the person’s condition and recommendation by the Chinese medicine practitioner.
Potential Side Effects of Cherokee Rose Extract
Cherokee rose appears to be safe for most people when taken at recommended doses. It can cause nausea, stomach cramps, fatigue, and sleeplessness.
Large doses (67 grams of Cherokee rose or more per day) can cause diarrhea and symptoms of vitamin C poisoning, such as kidney and urinary tract problems.
