Rhodiola Rosea helps lessen mental and physical stress as well as promote endurance. Rhodiola Rosea also supports healthy glucose metabolism and cellular function.
Rhodiola rosea, a Siberian plant also known as Golden root, has been used traditionally for hundreds of years to help lessen mental and physical stress and to promote endurance. Animal studies indicate that the extract also appears to maintain healthy adrenal catecholamine activity during stress and provide cardioprotection by moderating stress-induced catecholamine release in the myocardium. Furthermore, Rhodiola rosea has demonstrated the potential to support healthy glucose metabolism. Rhodiola may be contraindicated for individuals taking adrenergic-blocking and antiarrhythmic medications.
