Rhodiola Rosea, sometimes referred to as Golden Root or Arctic Root, is a perennial flowering plant in the family Crassulaceae. It is commonly found in the arctic regions of Britain, Asia and North America. Rhodiola Rosea has been used in traditional remedies for centuries in Russian and Scandinavian countries. In more recent times, Rhodiola Rosea has appeared in the scientific literature of numerous countries such as Sweden, Norway, France, Germany, the Soviet Union and Iceland. Second to Panax Ginseng Extract, it is widely considered to be one of the most popular adaptogen herb supplement options available today. Adaptogens are believed to help your body adapt to physical, chemical, and environmental stresses.
Research has suggested that Rhodiola Rosea benefits may include:
Some convincing studies have found support for Rhodiola Rosea's reported health benefits. In one study consisting of 150 individuals, participants were given a Rhodiola Rosea supplement for one month. At the conclusion of those thirty days, 66% of the participants reported positive mood-boosting effects and increased energy. Studies conducted in 2007 in the Nordic Journal of Psychiatry and in 2008 by UCLA reported similar findings. In 2004, the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism published a study suggesting that a benefit of Rhodiola Rosea is its ability to act as an anti-inflammatory and promote not only workout recovery but increased endurance. There is preliminary evidence suggesting that Rhodiola Rosea may be neuroprotective as well.
Research of Rhodiola Rosea's benefits has identified over 100 chemical compounds in this flowering plant. Of these, Rosavin, Rosarin, Rosin and Salidroside are commonly believed to be the main active compounds. It's important to note that most trials using Rhodiola Rosea supplements used standardized extracts containing at least 2-3% rosavin or 0.8-1% salidroside. Comparatively speaking, research has suggested that Rhodiola Rosea with 3% Salidroside is more stimulating whereas Rhodiola Rosea Extract with 3% Rosavins is more calming or relaxing which is an important distinction to make when considering which Rhodiola Rosea may work best for you.

best rhodiola in the market. Great energy in the morning and gives a touch of mental clarity.
Also, i live in colombia and the shipment was pretty fast compared with other companies. Unknown on 25th May 2017
I was really impressed that ND showed such detailed analysis of their rhodiola. So I decided to try both the salidroside and rosavin versions. This one really gives some good energy. I like to use it when I need a little extra boost when doing triathlons. I prefer the 3% rosavin version a little more because of the calming effect I get from it. So I usually use that one regularly, and this one for days I know I need a bit more boost. Capsules of both extracts would be even better. Rienne on 26th May 2016
I chose to try this product after reading "Is it normal for me to take a long while to fall asleep, even if I exercised earlier in the day?", here http://sock-doc.com/2011/03/sleep-your-secret-weapon-to-get-faster-stronger/. It convinced me that my problem is a choline imbalance. Then I read that rhodiola will help.
I felt that I was not recovering from physical activity like when I was younger (I am in my 50's), but I still could not sleep. I have had the powder for almost a week, and I really have the impression that my energy is back, I can exercise as much as I want, and I am sleeping well. :)))
Also, the taste is good. I put it in juice with my usual protein powder. RTT on 29th May 2015
take a very small dose on an empty stomach to see how it affects you first andrew on 21st Dec 2014
I've read you have to take golden root for 30 days for the effects to kick in. I just started taking it for less than a week. so I dunno what to say about it yet. The readings I been researching say it doesn't take effect instantly like phenibut, hordenine, etc. FoxHunter on 20th Nov 2014
I have tried rhodiola rosea before but I have never gotten the effects that I've experienced from this product. This is very high quality and the price is very good. Jeremy Johnston on 17th Nov 2014
