Rhodiola Rosea (90 caps)
Broad-spectrum adaptogen support for occasional mental and physical stress, and cardiovascular function‡
What Is It?
Rhodiola rosea, a Siberian plant also known as Golden root, has been used traditionally for hundreds of years. Identified as an adaptogen through extensive research, Rhodiola rosea has demonstrated a number of versatile properties including support for occasional mental and physical stress, cardiovascular and metabolic function, and cellular health.*
Uses For Rhodiola Rosea
Supports Performance During Occasional Stress: Recently, a double blind cross-over study examined the effect of Rhodiola rosea on mental performance in healthy physicians. The results suggest that rhodiola may help to moderate fatigue under stressful conditions and to support short-term memory and concentration. In a separate, double blind, placebo-controlled pilot study, Rhodiola rosea provided support for physical and mental stress in students. Promoting the activity of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine plays a part in this herb’s ability to enhance cognitive functioning, memory and attention. Animal studies indicate that this extract may also play a role in supporting
healthy heart muscle function and blood flow. One proposed cardioprotective mechanism is maintaining healthy catecholamine release in the myocardium. The extract also appears to maintain healthy adrenal catecholamine activity during stress. Furthermore, Rhodiola rosea has demonstrated the potential to support liver function, glucose and insulin metabolism, and antioxidant and cellular protection.*
Promotes Energy Metabolism: In a university study, Rhodiola rosea enhanced physical work capacity and improved recovery time for individuals participating in high intensity exercise. In a separate study, this extract was shown to promote endurance and coordination in athletes.*
