Rhodiola: A History of Health Benefits
Rhodiola rosea is a plant native to the mountainous regions of Asia, Europe, the Arctic, and especially Siberia. Also known as “Golden Root,” it has been used in traditional European medical circles for centuries. Russians have long used it in a tea to boost energy.
Helps the Body Deal with Stress
Research has identified Rhodiola as an adaptogen like Siberian ginseng or Korean ginseng. An adaptogen is basically an agent that helps the body prepare for and deal with stress, whether the source is physical, biological, or chemical. An adaptogen works somewhat like an athlete who trains for competition. The athlete’s body can handle the stress of competition because of the preparation. The body also returns to a normal state more quickly after the competition. Adaptogens provide similar effects.
In studies, Rhodiola was shown to help improve declining work performance, sleep problems, lack of appetite, irritability, headaches, and fatigue, which were results of intense physical or intellectual stress. Other research confirmed improved cognitive function, a stronger immune system, enhanced athletic performance, and reduced stress. However, more research is necessary before specific health benefits can be identified.
Scientists have identified the active compounds in Rhodiola to be Rosavins. These phytochemicals are responsible for Rhodiola’s unique characteristics. Vitabase Rhodiola is standardized to a minimum of 3 percent rosavins.
