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". Panax ginseng is the Asian variety of ginseng, also known as Red Korean or Chinese ginseng. It has slightly different medicinal properties than other types of ginseng. The root looks like a human body with arms and legs.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Rhodiola rosea and Panax ginseng are adaptogenic herbs, 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. Panax ginseng has been shown to improve mental and physical performance during periods of mental or physical stress such as school or exercise, and may also support blood sugar utilization. Panax ginseng has been studied in populations varying from women experiencing menopausal symptoms to improving functional capacity of patients with COPD (chonic obstructive pulmonary disease).
Who Should Take It?
Rhodiola Rosea with Ginseng is an excellent support for athletes, students, menopausal women, those who have physically or mentally demanding lifestyles or careers, or for those with illnesses like COPD where exercise capacity is affected.
Take 1 capsule twice daily, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
