What is Rhodiola?
Also known as the golden root, rhodiola is a flowering plant which typically grows at high altitudes, particularly in parts of Russia and Scandinavia. It has long been used as a herbal remedy to increase energy, stamina and concentration, and help to balance moods.
What Are the Health Benefits of Rhodiola?
Rhodiola is classified as having adaptogenic properties; adaptogens are substances which are able to increase the body's resistance to certain physical, chemical and mental stress factors. They are considered ‘smart’ substances as they are they are often able to work with the body’s current state of health. These adaptogenic properties help to make rhodiola a feel-good natural supplement that may be particularly beneficial with people suffering from stress, anxiety, and unbalanced moods.
According to Dr. Richard Brown of Columbia University, Rhodiola “enhances the healing properties of one’s own nervous system”. He describes it as a particularly unusual substance in the way that it can simultaneously provide both “cognitive stimulation” and “emotional calming” effects. People are finding it to be a nutritional replacement for caffeine, as it can provide an increase in energy without the ‘jitters’ that are associated with caffeine consumption. It also contains an active compound called salidroside which has been shown to display neuroprotective qualities.
Rhodiola is particularly popular in Scandinavia, where it is most commonly used to help increase focus and mental performance. People will often take rhodiola supplements before studying or taking an important test.
The plant may also be beneficial for people going through the menopause. Patricia L. Gerbarg, MD, recommends rhodiola to her patients who are experiencing menopausal symptoms.
“I’ve had cases of amazing recovery with rhodiola, a lot of residual symptoms with these people—loss of energy, loss of strength, their brain slows down—sometimes these will improve quickly and dramatically with rhodiola.” - Patricia L. Gerbarg, MD
Although more studies are needed, recent tests indicate that rhodiola shows promising potential when it comes to increasing physical endurance and promoting sound sleep.
