Rhodiola rosea (R. rosea), also known as golden root and artic root, is an herb that grows naturally in wild Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and North America.
People in Russia and Scandinavian countries have used rhodiola herb to treat anxiety, fatigue and depression for centuries. Today, it’s widely used as an herbal medicine supplement for its many beneficial actions on the body.
Rhodiola has been extensively studied over the past 70 years, mostly for improving work performance and endurance while fighting insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and depression.
Rhodiola root is most commonly used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity. In herbal medicine, rhodiola is classed as an adaptogen. Adaptogens help the body adapt to and resist physical, chemical, and environmental stress.
Its root contains more than 140 active ingredients, the two most potent of which are rosavin and salidroside. Rosavin is found in higher concentrations than salidrosides, with approximately a 3:1 ratio within R. rosea. In animal studies it’s been found that rosavin contributes to rhodiola’s benefits by having antidepressant-like, adaptogenic, anxiolytic-like and stimulating effects.
The herb is most often taken as a rhodiola extract or in combination with other herbs as a rhodiola complex in tablet or capsule form.
When choosing a quality rhodiola supplement make sure it is standardised to contain the active constituents mentioned above.
