Rhodiola Rosea Benefits

Rhodiola Rosea, another fine adaptogen you've got me into...

Rhodiola Rosea is a plant usually found growing above 10,000 feet in the Altai mountains of Siberia. The plant can grow from 12-30 inches and has brilliant yellow flowers when in bloom. The root of the plant is prized for its medicinal purposes. When harvested, the cut root gives of an aroma similar to that of a rose, which is where the name Rosea comes from.

Rhodiola Rosea has long been valued as a medicinal plant having been used by the ancient Greeks, Chinese and Russians. So highly prized were the rhodiola rosea benefits by the Russian Czars, that its export was illegal.

Rhodiola Rosea is another plant belonging to the Adaptogen family. An adaptogen is a herb that provides overall health benefits without any harsh side effects. Adaptogens must comply with the following:

  1. Must be nontoxic and cause very few, if any, side effects
  2. Produce nonspecific resistance in the body to all types of stress (physical, chemical and biological)
  3. Produce a normalizing influence on the body

More on adaptogens in our Cordyceps Sinensis article.

So what do those standards characteristics really mean? An adaptogen herb will be nontoxic and cause few if any side effects. An adaptogen herb must help build resistance to all areas of stress that may affect our body. Finally, an adaptogen herb will be able to normalize the body and place the body in proper balance. The key with an adaptogen is being able to adapt to what the body needs and balance the body's functions. A herb that could increase energy if your body is fatigued and also decrease energy if your body is over stimulated would be an example of an adaptogen herb.

In its capacity as an adaptogen, Rhodiola Rosea has an overall beneficial effect on our health.

  • Increased energy, endurance and stamina
  • Reduced stress
  • Uplifts moods
  • Promotes mental focus
  • Improves sexual performance
  • Promotes healthy sleep

Rhodiola Rosea benefits not only athletes in their prime, but also the wrinklies, like me for example. It's an amazing adaptogen and one I take daily in combination with other compounds, all found in Acai Revive capsules.

All this might sound like the typical trumpeting about the healthy properties of plants and herbs. In the case of Rhodiola Rosea though, studies are numerous. Here's a few for starters:

Here's a quick rundown of the of Rhodiola Rosea benefits:

  • A powerful antioxidant - helps quench free radicals and defend against oxidative damage in our body
  • Increases cellular energy by stimulating the production of ATP and CP (the fuel for the body)
  • Balances stress response system by limiting the excess release of the stress hormone Cortisol
  • Calms the stress response system and supports the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Elevates DNA and RNA in muscle cells, which in turn increasing the manufacture of proteins necessary for repair of cells and organs
  • Reduces oxygen consumption on a cellular level
  • Stimulates the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine
  • Stimulates the production of natural killer cells (cells that protect against infection)
  • Increases the metabolism of fat for energy

acai capsules testimonialsJan, thanks... When we first became interested in a good quality acai supplement, we made the biggest mistake possible and signed up for one of those so called free trials. After being billed $220 for the free trial we managed to cancel but only after endless phone calls to our bank and credit card company. We are still trying to get our money back.

Luckily for us, we decided to give acai another try and after some research we came across your site. Your advice about the acai sounded spot on so we went ahead and tried Perfect Acai. It totally changed our minds.

More energy and new zest. It's like a kick in the pants (a very welcome kick in the pants mind).

Top marks for recommending a quality product from an ethical manufacturer.

Many Thanks
Kim + Brian
