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 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

I've been trying a lot of rhodiola products out there, and the fact that ND showed detailed analysis of the species and purity surprised me. I tried both the 3% rosavin and 3% salidroside version. This one works really well for me because it not only makes it easier to do my daily yoga or workout, but it makes me calm at the same time. So far I would say this is my favorite rhodiola version of any vendor. I like the whole freeze dried version from Eclectic Institute too, but this one works a bit better. The 3% salidroside was good too, very stimulating, but not as calming for me. I like the extra calm this one gives. Will certainly be ordering again, and would love to have it in capsules.
