About Rhodiola Rosea:
*Rhodiola rosea also known as Golden root or Arctic root, a Siberian plant, has been used traditionally for hundreds of years in countries including Russia and Siberia. Identified as an adaptogen through extensive research, rhodiola has demonstrated a number of versatile properties. In particular, this includes helping to moderate the effects of physical and emotional stress.
One proposed cardioprotective mechanism is moderation of stress-induced catecholamine release in the myocardium. The extract also appears to moderate adrenal catecholamine activity during stress. Furthermore, rhodiola has demonstrated the potential to support liver function, glucose and insulin metabolism, and antioxidant and cellular protection.
Recently, a double-blind cross-over study examined the effect of rhodiola 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 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.
Rhodiola may also promote energy metabolism. In a university study, it 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.
Animal studies indicate that this extract may also play a role in supporting healthy heart muscle function and blood flow.
