What Is It?
Rhodiola, also known as Rhodiola rosea, is an herb with a long history of use for the adaptation to the rigors of life on the tundras of North-central Asia. Rhodiola has been listed in the national pharmacopoeias of France, Sweden, Denmark, and the former USSR as an adaptogen and "brain tonic". Unlike many stimulants or drugs, Rhodiola does not cause a tolerance, meaning that the same dose will continue to work for you. AOR's Rhodiola is properly standardized for the active ingredients.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Rhodiola rosea is an adaptogenic herb, supporting the body's ability to handle stress. Rhodiola is a classic adaptogen in that it balances the levels of hormones and neurotransmitters normally associated with stressors. However, Rhodiola is unique among adaptogens in that it has been clinically shown to increase energy reserves and reduce cortisol. Rhodiola has been found to improve mental performance during night-shift duty, helping reduce fatigue in shift workers as well as the average person suffering from general fatigue.
Who Should Take It?
Rhodiola is ideal for those who frequently experience stress, especially those who respond to stressors with a feeling of helplessness. It is very helpful for shift workers or those with demanding jobs.
Take 2 capsules daily on an empty stomach, not immediately before bedtime, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
