Why Should I Take Salidrosol?
Bringing an old classic back in a new form! If you have ever been interested in trying out our salidrosol solution, but are not a fan of dropper bottle solutions, then these new quick dissolve salidrosol tablets are for you!
Salidrosol is a unique combination of pure salidroside and tyrosol, two of the main active compounds found in Rhodiola rosea. More interestingly, the combination of salidroside and tyrosol is what gives Rhodiola rosea its unique energizing properties. By having both compounds represented at high amounts in this easy to take tablet, you can tap into a sense of pure clean energy!
What is Salidrosol?
Salidrosol is a very novel combination of two of the most bioactive compounds found in Rhodiola rosea, salidroside and tyrosol. These unique compounds are both thought to be responsible for the stimulating effects of Rhodiola rosea. While you can get a solid dose of salidroside from Rhodiola rosea, the real magic with salidrosol comes from the tyrosol content.
Tyrosol is present only in small quantities in Rhodiola rosea, however, it is the aglycone of salidroside. What this means, is that salidroside has a sugar group on it, and when this is removed, we end up with tyrosol. This process happens within Rhodiola rosea at a very slow rate, which is why the tyrosol content is quite low. In our bodies however, the sugar group is quite quickly removed from salidroside, meaning that tyrosol is normally formed in our body after Rhodiola rosea consumption. This likely explains the delay in stimulating effects with regular Rhodiola rosea supplementation.
Since salidrosol already contains a large amount of tyrosol, it means that you can feel the effects of tyrosol much quicker. This then results in a very rapid energizing effect, especially when the tablets are allowed to dissolve in the mouth so you can take advantage of sublingual and buccal absorption!

Salidrosol For Rapid Adaptogenic Energy
Pop a quick dissolving salidrosol tablet under your tongue, let it sit there for about 10 minutes, and before you know it, you will feel a quick increase in energy! This is the magic of salidrosol, and is why the original salidrosol solution has been such a popular product for us over the years. However, there was a clear demand for this product in a non-solution form, so here we are with our brand new salidrosol quick dissolving tablets!
Rhodiola rosea has been used for centuries for its incredible adaptogenic and stimulating effects. Alongside Panax ginseng and Ashwagandha, Rhodiola rosea is certainly one of the most popular adaptogens around, and for good reason! When we first created salidrosol, we were trying to push the stimulating effects a little bit more, which led us to the discovery that tyrosol is quite stimulating and kicks in rapidly. Having both compounds in their isolated form, leads to very convenient and quick dosing, while ensuring a large dose of tyrosol, something which isn’t entirely possible with plain Rhodiola rosea.
Both salidroside and tyrosol have a fantastic effect on upregulating mitochondrial activity, even helping to produce new mitochondria through a process called mitochondrial biogenesis! This is likely where a lot of the energizing effects come from. In addition to that, salidroside and tyrosol can also help dampen cortisol, thus producing a very pleasant stress management effect, in addition to its energizing effects. The energizing effects are further amplified by salidroside and tyrosols ability to upregulate tyrosine hydroxylase activity. Tyrosine hydroxylase is the rate limiting enzyme in dopamine production, and thus, by upregulating its activity, salidroside can enhance dopamine production! Overall, when looking at the mitochondrial energy effects and the dopaminergic effects, it is easy to see why Rhodiola rosea is so highly revered for promoting energy levels.
Salidroside and tyrosol also happen to be very neuroprotective, especially when it comes to dopaminergic neurons. Thus, when looking at the tyrosine hydroxylase effects of salidrosol, it becomes quite clear that salidrosol is a fantastic supplement for promoting overall dopaminergic function.
The Stimulation Stack: Salidrosol + Dynamine Methylliberine Capsules
Since salidrosol kicks in so quickly, it made a lot of sense to combine it with dynamine, which also kicks in very quickly and produces caffeine-like effects. Stacked together, this is the perfect pre-workout if you need rapid effects that do not last too long!
The Adaptogenic Stack: Salidrosol + Shoden® Ashwagandha Extract Capsules
