What is Rhodiola rosea
Rhodiola rosea, called Rhodiola, and known as “golden root”,, „Roseroot“ or “arctic root”, has long been employed in traditional medicine in the Nordic countries, Eastern Europe and Asia, as a natural tonic, referred to as an “adaptogen.” Rhodiola is used to promote good health, strength, endurance, and physical and mental performance. Even its ingestion for physical effects is also historically rooted in data from Viking times indicating that it was used to boost endurance and physical strength.
Although Rhodiola rosea has a long history of use in traditional and folk medicine, it has only more recently started to garner sustained scientific attention by virtue of its supposed adaptogenic benefits.
Just like Ashwagandha Ashwagandha, Rhodiola rosea is an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body manage stress.
Rhodiola rosea contains 140 compounds in its roots and rhizome. Certain chemicals must be present for Rhodiola rosea to work. The critical components include rosavin, rosarian, and rosin, collectively known as rosavins and salidroside.
To ensure the supplement you choose works and contains pure Rhodiola rosea, it needs to be standardized to contain at least 3% rosavins and 1% salidroside. This is the ratio found in the natural root. In contrast to many natural compounds, salidroside is water-soluble and highly bioavailable via oral administration.
Rhodiola rosea is an adaptogen, meaning that it can help your body manage stress.
Chronic stress and cortisol can damage your brain. Neuroscientists at the University of California, Berkeley, found that chronic stress triggers long-term changes in brain structure and function. Chronic stress changes neural networks. Cortisol creates a domino effect that hard-wires pathways between the hippocampus and amygdala. The amygdala (lizard brain) is the area responsible for your fight-or-flight response. This hard-wiring caused by stress is not the way the brain was designed. But chronic, ongoing stress tricks the brain into rebuilding circuits and hunkering down for the long haul.
This re-wiring appears to be permanent. Unless you intervene with something like Rhodiola rosea.
Chronic stress seems to ‘flip a switch’ in stem cells in the brain. And turns them into a type of cell that prevents connections to the prefrontal cortex, preventing improved learning and memory. This state is also connected to anxiety and depression.
It is known that chronic stress:
Physical and mental performance*
Amy C. Keller PhD. screened 693 studies and scientific papers focused on Rhodiola rosea. She chose 11 studies, which met all her inclusion criteria. In summary, the studies were published between 2000 and 2009 and were from Russia, Armenia, the United States, Sweden, Belgium, and the Netherlands. There was a wide range of number of participants between 12 to 121 per study. The total number of participants was 503. Most of the studies were conducted on healthy subjects exposed to fatigue, or stress from exercise, work, or exams. All studies included a placebo.
The author examined the studies for physical and physiological (mental) performance. The measurements used in the mental performance studies were short-term memory, reaction time to various stimulus, and concentration.
Two of these studies observed significant improvements in the Total Anti-Fatigue Index and Total Fatigue Index scores of the Rhodiola treatment groups in comparison with the placebo. In the studies examining mental health, fatigue syndrome and depression were analysed. The Rhodiola-treated patients with stress-related fatigue improved significantly more than the placebo group. In addition, patients suffering from depression significantly improved when treated with Rhodiola compared to the placebo group, according to the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression and the Beck Depression Inventory, which are commonly used questionnaires for rating the severity of depression symptoms. None of the studies observed any serious adverse effects.
The Rhodiola-treated patients with stress-related fatigue improved significantly more than the placebo group.
The author concluded that Rhodiola rosea root preparations may be active in a variety of ways and might be used to treat several ailments, including those brought on by stress and depression. The author herself concluded that the reported bioactivity of Rhodiola warrants further investigation; this review outlines a convincing argument for this conclusion.
- Summary PMID 21036578 showed that several studies demonstrated that Rhodiola rosea enhanced mental and physical performance.
- A study in the „Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition“ showed enhanced physical performance. The study was performed on 15 university-attending women
- Study PMID 30564123 showed that, Rhodiola rosea may enhance memory and learning.
Reduce stress and fatigue*
Rhodiola rosea repairs brain damage caused by chronic stress. It helps the brain to stay healthy. Rhodiola rosea relieves stress by balancing your body’s stress-response system, and it helps your body return to a relaxed state by influencing key brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine and beta-endorphins
Rhodiola rosea can also help prevent and repair damage caused by free radicals. Thanks to salidroside, neurons are protected and regenerated during periods of stress. Rhodiola helps in the synthesis and resynthesis of ATP, the main fuel source for the mitochondria in your cells.
Rhodiola rosea helps reduce stress and fatigue, increase energy, alertness and stamina, while boosting mental performance under periods of chronic stress.
Rhodiola rosea helps reduce stress and fatigue, increase energy, alertness and stamina, while boosting mental performance under periods of chronic stress. Research shows that Rhodiola rosea can increase attention to detail-oriented tasks by improving concentration over a prolonged period.
- Study PMID 22228617 showed clinically relevant improvement of stress symptoms.
- Study PMID 28367055 showed improvement in measured parameters in people with burnout syndrome.
- Study PMID 19016404 on 60 men and women between the ages of 20 and 55 showed reduction of fatigue and increased mental performance, especially the ability to concentrate.
- In another study, performed on 20 medical students, significant improvements in physical fitness, mental fatigue, psychomotor performance and general well-being were shown. It also reported improvement in sleep patterns, a reduced need for sleep, greater mood stability, and a greater motivation to study
- Another study on 56 young, healthy physicians during their night shifts showed significant reduction in fatigue and improved mental performance during the first two weeks.
Rhodiola rosea boosts mood by influencing serotonin and norepinephrine levels in your brain.
Study PMID 20374974 selected 40 healthy females aged between 20-68 who claimed to have felt stressed over a long period of time due to living under psychologically stressful conditions. The study monitored the effect of Rhodiola rosea combined with other ingredients. It showed a significant increase in attention, speed and accuracy during the performance of stressful cognitive tasks. There was also a reduced percentage of errors, which means work has better accuracy and quality.
A study published in “The National Center for Biotechnology” showed that Rhodiola can have anti-cancer effects and can positively impact normal physiological functions, similar to the effect of positive lifestyle intervention.
The time required to begin feeling the effects of Rhodiola rosea depends on your genetics, mental and physical condition, environment, behaviour and lifestyle.
Some report feeling its effects in just a few days, while others require as much as 3 weeks.
Many report that Rhodiola rosea provides a pronounced anti-anxiety effect and an overall improvement of quality of life. It should give you an energy lift. It could improve your mood, focus, level of concentration and alertness.
