What Is Rhodiola?
Rhodiola is a powerful "adaptogen", an agent that protects the body from breakdown due to chronic stress.
Also known as golden root, arctic root or roseroot, Rhodiola has been used for centuries in traditional Russian and Scandinavian medicine to increase physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, infertility, gastrointestinal complaints, and nervous system disorders.
Today in Russia, Rhodiola is used as a tonic and remedy for fatigue, poor attention span, and decreased memory; it is also believed to make workers more productive.
What sets Rhodiola rosea apart from other species of Rhodiola are three cinnamyl alchohol-vicianosides identified as rosavin, rosin and rosarin – which may give this Siberian root its potent punch! Its many uses include:
Stress Buster: Users say that when it comes to physical and mental stress, the many symptoms seem less pronounced.
Sleep Inducement: Some people report that taking Rhodiola before bed helps calm the mind, for a more restful sleep.
Athletic Improvement: It seems that Rhodiola is used by athletes and physically active individuals to enhance sleep, increase energy and reduce post-workout burn.
Mood Enhancement: Many individuals taking Rhodiola say that they experience an uplifting feeling that carries throughout the day.
Immunity Booster: Since stress is a leading cause of fatigue and lowered immune function, some people say that the stress-busting Rhodiola helps improve their natural defenses.
On top of all its healthy lifestyle enhancement, Rhodiola is also newly being researched as a potential anti-cancer ingredient. And now it's available in a convenient and potent extract for you to try!
