Rhodiola rosea, also known commonly as golden root, rose root, Arctis root and king’s crown is a perennial flowering plant and grows naturally in several places and climates across the world. Rhodiola has been used traditionally in ayurvedic medicine for a very long time, to treat several disorders such as anxiety, depression and helping with focus and energy levels. In Russia and Scandinavia, Rhodiola rosea has been used for centuries to help people cope with the very cold climates and overall, stressfulness that occurs in life. Rhodiola may also increase physical endurance and resistance to high-altitude sickness, so it is a wonderful tonic to enjoy while travelling. This golden root also contains fat-burning and brain-boosting power, as it is one of the most effective herbs in the world of adaptogens. Rhodiola has also shown its wonderful ability to help balance stress hormones such as cortisol. This herb has been used for centuries for improving stamina and reducing stress, even used by the Vikings who climbed and travelled across very high altitudes. Studies have also found rhodiola to contain over 40 kinds of chemical compounds and contribute to Rhodiola’s benefits by having antidepressant and stimulating effects. In several countries, rhodiola is used to treat and boost general strength and vitality while also increasing productivity, so it is ideal for those with busy work schedules, those avoiding coffee and those who just desire a mental boost.
In a 2002 review in HerbalGram, the journal of the American Botanical Council found that both animals and humans who ingested rhodiola helped prevent fatigue, mental and physical stress and also how the antioxidants within rhodiola have enhanced immune system function. In another study published in 2007, rhodiola aided significantly in 10 people who had general anxiety after consuming for 10 weeks, which show that it appears to work faster than conventional antidepressants.Resources
