Rhodiola is an herb that grows in the cold, mountainous regions of Europe and Asia.
Its roots are considered adaptogens, meaning they help your body adapt to stress when consumed.
Rhodiola is also known as arctic root or golden root, and its scientific name is Rhodiola rosea.
Its root contains more than 140 active ingredients, the two most potent of which are rosavin and salidroside. People in Russia and Scandinavian countries have used rhodiola to treat anxiety, fatigue and depression for centuries. Today, it’s widely used as a dietary supplement for its many health benefits.
Adaptogens like rhodiola rosea increase your body’s resistance to stress, allowing you to better cope during stressful times.
The adaptogenic nature of rhodiola makes it a popular supplement for fighting fatigue and other symptoms associated with stress.
Rhodiola has been shown to improve many symptoms of depression. Similar to antidepressants, it may positively influence neurotransmitters that affect mood and emotion.
Rhodiola has been shown to increase mental performance during mentally stressful and physically strenuous times. However, more research is needed to verify these findings.
Rhodiola has the potential to decrease perceived exertion, which may allow you to work out longer and harder.
Rhodiola has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in rodents, suggesting it may be a valuable supplement for diabetes control in humans. However, more research in humans is needed.
Test-tube experiments have shown that an active ingredient in rhodiola called salidroside inhibits the growth of cancer cells. However, its effects in humans are unknown.
Overall, rhodiola has many health benefits and is considered safe with a low risk of side effects when it’s taken in the recommended dosages.
