Rhodiola Rosea extract is derived from the Rhodiola Rosea plant, a perennial herb from the Crassulaceae family that grows on mountains and sea cliffs in cold, high altitudes in the arctic regions around the world, including in Asia, Europe, and North America. Also known as golden root, rose root, and arctic root (among others), Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in alternative and traditional medicine for hundreds of years. Rhodiola Rosea is a flowering plant with green leaves and yellow/red petals, but Rhodiola Rosea Extract is derived from the roots.
Rhodiola Rosea root contains over 100 constituents, or chemical compounds. One of these compounds, Rosavin, may provide mood support. Our Rhodiola Rosea Powder with 3% Rosavins is reported to have a potential calming effect. Other formulations that contain more Salidrosides are reportedly more stimulatory.
Rhodiola as an Adaptogen: As an adaptogen, Rhodiola Rosea Powder can help ease stress. Adaptogens are compounds that help the body adapt to stressors while not interfering with regular biological processes. For example, anecdotally, the herb has been used by some to help manage harsh winters in Serbia.
Rhodiola may promote increased energy: Eight studies suggest that Rhodiola Rosea has shown potential efficacy in fighting fatigue.
Rhodiola as a Nootropic: Other studies show potential efficacy in improving cognition and subjective well-being. More research is needed to indicate the effect Rhodiola Rosea has on cognition and well-being, but it is thought that these are actually benefits related to reduced mental fatigue and stress.
Rhodiola may promote weight loss: In one human study conducted at Georgia state hospital consisting of 130 obese patients, those that were given a Rhodiola rosea supplement in conjunction with a low calorie diet demonstrated a mean weight loss of 19 pounds compared to only 8 pounds lost by the placebo group.
As a dietary supplement, take 250mg of Rhodiola Rosea Extract 1-2 times daily.

I was expecting the worst, but got the best. abe on 17th Aug 2018
Cost effective. Kevin on 20th Jan 2018
This is the single thing that has made cycling off of caffeine a doable experience instead of a horror show where I can barely run my life in the interim. I've only taken a 75mg-100mg daily dose so far, will continue experimenting with the dosage to see what seems optimal.
Incredible tool. Also, stay hydrated with this! Unknown on 22nd Dec 2017
Last time I stopped taking rhodiola because it had turned into a massive rock at the bottom of the container, I went for about 10 days without it, in midterms madness and flu season. Got the flu, was sick as everyone, borderline pneumonia. This baby arrived, and after 2 days of taking it, pretty much everything was gone. Just 250mg in the morning will keep you in good shape. I found no need to dose it twice a day, except when it first arrived and I was sick. Necessary as a part of your daily stack, for sure. Unknown on 31st Oct 2017
I have taken 250 mg per day for 29 days. I felt a benefit after a week. I felt "better in myself", better mood, more able to do what I wanted to do and feel good, more relaxed and less cautious. It's hard to describe and be specific but I definitely found it beneficial. The powder tastes very bitter so I wouldn't recommend putting directly in your mouth. I add it to 50 mls water and leave to dissolve, it takes about 10 mins, then stir and drink. Best to take on an empty stomach I believe, so I take it before bed. Weighing it out every night is cumbersome so I figured a way to do this in advance. I don't know how to add this to capsules at home so I thought of making little sachets. I use sugar sachets, open them carefully, empty the sugar out and add the weighed rhoseola powder to the bag, fold over the top and seal with a paper clip. I weigh out 14 at a time and put them in a small container. Then each night I open one bag, tip it into a glass of water and drink. I save the empty bag and paper clip to reuse. I highly recommend this product.

Claiming rosavins as "ineffective" is a bit misguided (mis)communication, as they are not effective *stimulating* compounds. But they *are* effective adaptogens, and this extract really shows how that part of rhodiola shines. I promise, no shill, it's just all truth. I think using this 2:1 with rosavin:salidroside extract is optimal, if not 3:1 (rosavin extract being the more prominent component in the formula). Salidroside is too much on its own, at least for me. Potential headache zone, like my experiences with Super Rhodiola from Ceretropic. Focusing on tyrosol and salidroside was surely a mistake there. But this customization factor that nootropicsdepot has introduced into the Rhodiola arena has really stepped up the game against the competition (Solaray, Nature's Answer, New Chapter, Gaia herbs, etc). srubek on 4th May 2017
Excellent quality, it's Rhodiola Rosea but on another level. Gave me great increase in focus.
All around quality product. Also, it amazes me that i can purchase one jar of 125G at a great price and have enough product for over a year. That only encourages me to recommend NootropicsDepot products to everyone i meet, as it's clearly there intention to make high quality, affordable products and not rip off the customer.

Let me tell you..i have never been so strong mentally and physically in my whole life..IT made me aware about lot of dimensions of me.
I am very balanced,i take apt decision..I am mentally very stable,motivated,positive.
I am tall fair and quite handsome..;)..It made me extraordinarily handsome with thicker and darker hair..
In short your body mind nerves skin fluids all in synchronisation..
I take it Sublingual may be 300 mg twice empty stomach.. i find thats the most effective way of taking it..
Again it depends on your body chemistry but this is sure that these guys have purest of extracts. As i tried quite a many.

I ordered the sample packs because I know how Rhodiola can be. In my case the rosavins are equally as potent as the salidrosides (I'll leave a separate review on that). The standard ratio of 3:1 in general, thus 3% Rosavins to 1% Salidrosides. That 1% Salidroside content is legitimately as potent as it's 3% cousin and I'm not making this up.
How is that possible you might be thinking? It's totally dependent upon your own chemical make up, so you may have a sensitivity to salidrosides making them incredibly effective for you. At the same time you may need to up your dosage, in particular once you have become accustomed to the effects.
As for serotonergic effects, I'm still toying with that, but when it DOES kick in, you can definitely notice a wave of "aaahhhh...." come down on you. At this point I am sitting at 600mg, to see if this works for me. Again it's all dependent upon one's sensitivity to either compound. (this IS normal, NOT crazy, I promise!) I do feel this is closer to balancing out effects for me, we will see over the next few days.
I have dealt with supplement raws and such as a former supplement company owner myself and I must say Nootropics Depot is bar none of the utmost quality. Do NOT hesitate to try their powders or caps. Josh on 7th Jul 2016
