Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogenic herb supplement used in times of heightened stress and anxiety. The best-selling formula supports the Adrenal glands and your body’s natural response to stress. It is also beneficial for improving stamina and maintaining optimum energy levels.
Rhodiola Rosea, also known as golden or Arctic root, is a perennial flowering plant native to the Arctic regions of Europe.
The roots are used for both culinary and medicinal purposes. They are sometimes eaten raw, in salads or cooked like spinach.
The extract from the plant is sometimes added to vodkas for additional flavor.
Rhodiola Rosea has a long history of use in traditional Chinese and folk medicine. It is especially popular in the harsh Siberian climate, Scandinavia and China.
The adaptogen herb is often used for conditions such as chronic fatigue, low energy levels, altitude sickness, depression and cancer.
Early research shows rhodiola can be effective in helping high-altitude sickness. The plant also has a long history of use in the treatment of mild depression and both chronic and short-term anxiety. It may as well reduce feelings of anger and confusion, as studies on college students suggest.
Rhodiola may also improve symptoms of mild to moderate depression when taken on a regular basis for 6-12 weeks.
Other research shows that rhodiola might decrease fatigue, especially in stressful situations and the extract seems to be especially helpful to sleep-deprived military cades, students taking exams and night-shift workers.
Although more studies are needed, r. rosea shows promise in improving athletic performance. Short-term use of the extract might help improve measurements of athletic performance, reduce muscle pain and improve stamina in professional athletes as well as gym enthusiasts.
A chemical compound found in rhodiola, salidroside, might also help reduce the chances of heart damage when undergoing chemotherapy.
