Rhodiola crenulata grows at high altitudes in mountainous and arctic regions and is frequently used in phytotherapy in Uzbekistan, China, and other Asian countries. Rhodiola crenulata root has been traditionally used to reduce the impact of high altitudes on our bodies. Arctic and Himalayan practices used rhodiola crenulata to support endurance, yet recent research has found that a Rhodiola crenulata extract may promote healthy stress levels and support cognitive function.
There are dozens of species of Rhodiola but the species that seems to generate the most interest is Rhodiola rosea due to its high concentrations of rosavins and salidroside. Lately there’s been a shortage of Rhodiola rosea so different species are being mislabeled and sold as Rhodiola rosea. The most commonly mislabeled rhodiola species is Rhodiola crenulata, which contains no rosavins but high amounts of salidroside and p-tyrosol. This variation may be better for people looking for higher salidroside content and less rosavins.
Rhodiola crenulata benefits are largely credited to Salidroside, which is believed to have neuroprotective properties, promote feelings of well being and support cellular health. Salidroside, also known as rhodioloside, is a glucoside form of tyrosol. Some studies suggest that Salidroside may have adaptogenic properties, which explains its historic use for a variety of purposes and why Rhodiola crenulata benefits may vary from person to person. Salidroside has been shown in a few studies to promote energy, promote feelings of well being, and reduce appetite. Salidroside may also support nerve health as a few studies found that that salidroside seems to support the nerve repair process and help protect nerve cells as well as promote cognitive function.
